Reporter style. There’s no simulated scenes and strained smiles. Wedding photographer is an observer of events and captures all the most important and exciting moments. Most often, reportage wedding photography is used in the registry office, during the on-site ceremony or wedding. The photographer can intervene in the course of events just asking newlyweds to do all the movements more slowly, gently takes the towel and exchange rings, hold her hand after painting the magazine marriage, sip a glass of champagne first. This will allow time to make a few frames of each rite. Otherwise, the master can only rely on their intuition and responsiveness. Also, reportage wedding photography is appropriate at a banquet, where the newlyweds will dance their first dance, light a candle and cut the family a luxurious wedding cake.

However, there is in the reportage wedding photography and disadvantages. Thus, the result may not always justify the expectations. Indeed, due to nervous excitement before the ceremony married person can not express the emotions that I would like to keep for years to come. And suddenly caught shots of guests and can be frustrating at all. Naturalness – this, of course, well. But each of the groom, and especially the bride on her wedding day you want to be the most beautiful.

The photographer can offer a few portraits, which with the help of light, background and other details emphasize the softness and beauty of the bride or groom’s virility and charm.
