Weddings are arguably some of the most exciting, emotional and memorable events that you could ever attend or be a part of. It’s a celebration that marks the union between a couple. It is an event deserving of a permanent spot in your memory. Because of this, many couples and organizers look for ways to create records of the event.
This usually means hiring a dedicated wedding photographer that walks the grounds. He should make sure to snap up all of the iconic moments that happen, creating a historical record of the most important moments in your wedding. However, there’s a concept that is starting to take over traditional wedding photography.
It’s known as documentary style wedding photography. The idea is to create a narrative through the photos by taking advantage of unscripted, unobtrusive and unposed moments. It is created from spontaneous human interactions.
Documentary style wedding photography is all about capturing moments that happen spontaneously. It’s about following the flow of your wedding and allowing the magic to happen naturally instead of trying to create fake moments from scripted interactions.
An old relative shedding a quiet tear as they watch the bride and groom walk the aisle, the younger generation of your family meeting together for the first time, or the bridesmaids huddling together for one final pep talk before the ceremony begins–these are the types of moments that shine most brightly when you look back at this monumentally life-changing event.
Traditional wedding photography relies on far too much interaction between the photographer and the guests. They’ll typically ask your guests to move into certain positions and do certain things so that the perfect shot can be fabricated. However, we don’t believe that this creates as memorable photographs as documentary style wedding photography. Above all, with our approach, we can not only capture organic moments as they happen, but we can create a narrative with the photographs we take. We are essentially creating stories for you to follow when you look back at your wedding photo album.
Another advantage is that formal photograph sessions can eat up a lot of time and create delays. Trying to get a dozen or even hundreds of people into a shot can be very time consuming. Similarly, taking special photographs of the lucky couple can be stressful on them because they need to be in so many different poses and places. Of course, it doesn’t mean that formal photography is completely skipped out. We are more than happy to include those in our wedding photography packages Toronto. But the bulk of candid wedding photography comes from the unique interactions between your guests and capturing the day as it unfolds.
