A W Allen Studio uses a combination of portraiture and photojournalism style for photographing weddings. The portraiture photography captures all of the wedding party and family members; while capturing these photos I need to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. During this phase of the wedding photography the photographer needs to allow the emotions of the wedding day guide how these group shots are created.
After the portraiture photographing you have the “photojournalist” documentation. Here the photographer, blends into the background as to not detract from the wedding festivities but still be ready and in position to capture photos that fully reflect the emotions of the pre and post wedding activities. These photos are intended to document the wedding day into photos that will re-create the happiness and emotions that this special day represents as time passes. The photos are also intended to make the people who were not at the wedding feel they were there.
