A Guide To Help You Choose The Right Wedding Photography Style

So, you’re getting married and you’ve almost sorted everything out, right down to the tiny details that’ll likely go unnoticed by anyone other than yourself.

Fantastic! Of course, you’ll need a great photographer to capture the magic in every moment; one who can find the right way to capture the essence of the day. The best way to do this is by knowing which photography style is the perfect match for your wedding day.

Unfortunately, your photographer is neither psychic nor a mind reader, so you’ll need to do your research beforehand. There’s a big difference between capturing candid in-between moments and staging a full-blown epic photoshoot.

Luckily, cinematography and photography experts Life Studios have made finding the right style easy, with their online “What’s Your Wedding Style?” quiz. So, if you’re unsure about what you like, head over to the Life Studios website, where you can find the styles below and discover many more!



For couples who prefer candid moments over staged shots.

The photojournalistic style is an increasingly popular one, with the photographer capturing unplanned shots in the midst of all the action. Far from a staged Mills and Boon-like shoot, the photojournalistic style is authentic, revealing, and raw. You’ll be able to look back on your wedding photos and remember certain moments just by the looks captured on your face.

For couples who prefer to stick to tradition.

The classic style is an homage to simplicity and the timeless wedding photos of your parents and grandparents. Classic photography usually involves posed photos with a more modern take, with the photographer looking to capture the beauty of ordinary moments. Expect shots like family photos and scenes amongst the décor.

For couples who prefer not to take themselves too seriously.

The fun photography style captures the weird, the funny, and the silly moments throughout the day, and couldn’t be any further from the usual traditional form. Fun photography captures the quirkiness of your relationship, your bridal party, and your guests to ensure that you’ll always look back on your photos with fond memories.

For couples who prefer a bit of style injected into their candid photos.

Lifestyle photography is similar to photojournalistic in that the photos appear more authentic and honest than traditional photography, while still being somewhat staged and styled. Your photos will capture those special candid moments and still look aesthetically pleasing.
