From a traditional style to contemporary the couples can be captured in whichever style they want to be seen. But today a more unobtrusive and naturalistic style of wedding photography has emerged, which is called photo journalistic style of photography. It is the style which gives a sense of a documentary film, meaning you get a feeling of watching a short documentary film while looking at your wedding album. Your wedding album will be just like a storybook of your wedding depicted in pictures. It is the most naturalistic style of taking wedding photography devoid of any formal poses.

As is the case in traditional style where the wedding pictures are taken in formal poses or the contemporary style where the pictures are more edgy, glamorous and magazine types. Photo journalistic style is nothing like this; it is more natural and informal. No one has to stand in any deliberate poses and no one has to put on any extra makeup for the pictures. All the people and the ceremonies are captured as they are, nothing artificial is added not even studio lighting to add that desired effect. The moments are captured as they are in their original form making the end result beautiful.

You can actually relive your whole wedding ceremony as it happened systematically years after by just looking at the pictures in this style. The photo journalistic style is often called documentary, candid or reportage style. No words or caption is needed to describe the photos as the pictures depict every story clearly. Why couples choose the photo journalistic style because the photographers record all the emotion, fun and laughter present at the wedding without making their presence known. This is an added advantage for camera shy people. If you have someone like them in your friends or family then you can easily have their pictures without even making them conscious.

Usually this style of wedding photography requires a lot of honed talent to tell the story of the wedding. You just can’t snap thousand of pictures hoping of taking a few good snaps. A lot of thought goes into saying the story in its original form and not making it highly interpretative.
