The Best Cameras For Street Photography

If you are someone who is looking into getting started in photography, the perfect genre for you to get started is street photography, which also happens to be a longtime popular genre in photography. More so because it is a genre you can pretty much capture easily when you’re out on the street with a camera on hand.

Ah yes, the camera. If you have no camera at hand yet, chances you are having quite a hard time in choosing the best camera to use for your street photography. Truth be told, there is no “best” camera as every camera has different features to suit different preferences and needs. However, we can provide with some of what we think are the best cameras to consider in the market today for street photography.

Considering the Camera Size

One good thing about street photography is that you do not need to use a big camera that photography studios like Rachael Pereira Photography use or bring additional equipment to shoot. In fact, a small camera that can shoot quality images would work just fine. This is especially the case since doing street photography requires your camera to be light enough for you to bring around comfortably, with less bulk and obstruction. The downside though is that a number of these small cameras do not have features that you may find useful when you are shooting on the street.

This does not mean DSLRs are not good cameras for street photography. In fact, some photographers use DSLRs for doing this type of photography as they provide more features and are somewhat more powerful cameras. However, they can be too bulky and using them may warrant more attention than you should when doing street photography.

In the end, the choice is up to you as the photographer as to what type of camera you think you would be more comfortable to bring around for your street photography. Whatever camera you choose should be something you should be comfortable using constantly wherever you go and would have the features you may be looking for in a camera.

The Best Camera for Street Photography?

With all these considered, we have rounded up some of the cameras in the market that can be considered the best for street photography and the features they offer:

Ricoh GR II –it’s rare for a point-and-shoot camera to be in contention for a best camera category, but the Ricoh GR II is a different kind of compact point and shoot camera that manages to stand out. It has a sturdy body, a 16 megapixel resolution, an f/2.8 maximum aperture and a high-speed autofocus system that makes it a no frills camera that gets the job done well, making it one of the most impressive compact cameras in the market today.

Leica M Digital Rangefinder – Leica cameras are one of the most expensive cameras in the market, and the Leica M Digital Rangefinder is no exception. Nevertheless, it offers an impressive set of features that make it a contender. The 24-megapixel shooter offers a very quiet shutter action, which makes it ideal for shooting on the streets, as well as a manual focus in the optical viewfinder. Image quality is exceptional, as can be expected in Leica cameras.

Fujifilm X100T – Fujifilm has been on the roll as of late for coming out with great quality cameras, especially mirrorless cameras. The Fujifilm X100T is yet another quality mirrorless camera they have produced. It boasts of a 16 megapixel resolution with and advanced X-Trans sensor for great image quality and an advanced processor which allows for lesser noise in high ISOs and faster performance as well of up to 6 fps. It also offers an almost quiet shutter speed performance of up to 1/32,000-second. Also, it has a built-in Wi-Fi and 1080p video capability.

Nikon D750 – if you’re considering having a DSLR camera for street photography, the Nikon D750 is a great camera to consider. It has a 24 megapixel resolution with an advanced EXPEED 4 processor for great image quality. More importantly, this camera has a 51-point autofocus system for faster and more accurate autofocus performance and a comfortable build that is suitable to carry it around on your street photography.

I Used an iPhone to Photograph My Friend’s Wedding

Years ago, taking photos on a mobile phone seemed unthinkable, considering the low quality that phone cameras had at that time. Nowadays, many people are now taking more photos over their phones rather than their digital cameras as technology has made it possible for phones to match the image quality, if not exceed, that of digital cameras.

In my case, I have found myself using my phone more in my photography, especially for taking casual shots that I do more often, while I still use my regular DSLR to if I want to capture more detailed or artistic photos. Besides, a phone is more handy for me to carry around for casual photography.

iphone-658840_1280
The phone I’m using by the way is an iPhone 5s, which I have found to be very good in taking photos with its true-tone flash that provides really good low-light performance and its burst mode which helps me take action shots better.

But recently, I found myself taking the capabilities of my iPhone’s camera to the limit when I was invited to attend a friend’s wedding. I originally intended to use my DSLR to take photos of that memorable moment. Unfortunately, my DSLR had to undergo repairs at a local camera shop. Thus, I was left with no choice but let my iPhone do the job.

For this job, I made sure to bring some extra tools for the job. Considering the iPhone’s battery life, I brought two chargers: a regular one and a portable one to make sure I don’t lose power in the middle of the event. I also brought a special tripod mount for my iPhone (and a tripod of course) just in case.

I also used some special lenses that can be attached to my iPhone to maximize and extend its capabilities when it falls short on its own. I have a wide angle/macro lens, fisheye lens that I could use for some fun shots, telephoto lens to extend the zoom capabilities of my iPhone, and a polarizer lens which helps reduce glare on my photos that is caused by sunlight.

wedding-609105_1280

The wedding I attended was a garden wedding, so during the ceremony we were outdoors where the lighting present is a natural one coming from the sun. Apart from the polarizer lens, I also made use of my iPhone’s built-in HDR function to balance the exposure of the shots. If you are not keen on using the iPhone’s built-in HDR, there are also 3rd party apps available that provide HDR functionality to your phone.

Speaking of apps, I also have a number of iOS camera apps on my phone that help improve my built-in camera’s performance, depending on the need and situation. Camera+ and Procamera provide better exposure control and wider angles. Slow Shutter Can is also another good app that control’s the phone’s shutter speed so you can create artistic DSLR-quality photos. These apps are helpful especially if you have do not have any special lenses available.

And being someone who is guilty of having shaky hands at times when I hold the camera, my iPhone being connected to the tripod via a special tripod mount helped lessen those blurry shots I tend to take from time to time. Plus, this special setup also allows me to take more creative shots, something I would not gotten under the regular setup.

As I noted earlier, I made sure I got things covered, especially with regards to my phone’s battery life. But apart from the extra chargers, I made it a point to disable unnecessary apps running in the background to save battery life. Another important thing I did was to turn off the cellular signal of my phone so I would be able to take photos without being interrupted by phone call that would ruin the moment, so to speak.

The tools may be different but the same rules in photography apply. Composition still plays an important part in the photo. As a photographer, I make sure the photos I take with my phone have those qualities, regardless of the phone’s limitations. And sometimes, knowing your phone’s limitations also helps spur one’s creativity, trying to go around those limitation with creative solutions that will turn out just as nice as they would if taken by a regular camera.

Once I was done, I was ready to process the photos I’ve taken. I managed to process and upload some of them to social media accounts like Instagram and applied some artistic filters when necessary. For the other photos, I edited them on my computer before uploading them to make sure they would turn out ok.

Overall, it was a unique but satisfying experience to have been able to extensively use my iPhone to cover an entire wedding. While the quality may not match that of a photo taken by a DSLR, the output is still very good and in some cases, looked better with the iPhone. In the end though, what matters more is that your camera gets to capture the priceless memories a wedding brings about, whether it’s a DSLR or an iPhone.

What is the Best Camera Phone for 2015?

This year, we have seen some very impressive mobile phones offering some great camera functionality. But which of these phones are the best as far as photography is concerned? If you are on the lookout right now for a great camera phone, we have provided for you a list of the best camera phones in the market today that you should seriously consider having and give you as well a rundown of each camera’s features and see what each of them offer.

Samsung Galaxy S6

The latest flagship phone model of Samsung boasts of a lot of new and exciting features. As far as its cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S6 provides dual high resolution cameras: a 16 MP main camera at the rear and a 5 MP front facing camera for those detailed and clear selfies. Both cameras launch as fast as 0.7 seconds, allowing you to capture moments quickly.

Another feature which makes this phone stand out as a camera phone is its aperture of f1.9, which lets you take quality low light shots instead of looking grainy and optical image stabilization for those less blurry shots. Overall, the cameras take really high quality photos that make it a topnotch camera phone in the market today.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 Plus is one of the two recent iPhone models released by Apple, not to mention the first phablet sized phone it has released. Of the two, the iPhone 6 Plus is the more advanced as far as camera features go, which we will detail in a bit. Otherwise, on paper, it bears the same 8 MP main camera and the 1.2 MP front camera as the previous iPhone.

What makes the Apple iPhone 6 Plus stand out are camera’s features, with an improved aperture of f2.2 for better low light shots and a faster autofocus system which Apple calls “focus pixels.” Unique to the iPhone 6 Plus is the optical image stabilization feature, which helps provide better quality and more stable photo through its lens.

LG G4

With Samsung and Apple dominating the mobile phone industry at the moment, LG comes out with an impressive phone to give the two a run for their money that is the LG G4. For one, it boasts of a 16 MP main camera and an 8 MP camera at the front, the highest resolution for a front-facing camera.

Inside, the camera boasts of an f1.8 aperture which provides very good performance even under low light conditions. It also has optical image stabilization and a manual mode which is the highlight of this camera as it provides more control of the photos you take with high quality results. It even allows you to shoot in RAW as well.

HTC One M9

HTC has put forth a good flagship phone with the HTC One M9, with a 20 MP main camera and a 4 MP front camera which is somewhat lower compared to the flagship Android phones of its competitors.

As far as the camera phones, it does the job well though again, it somewhat pales in comparison compared to the other flagship Android phones. The aperture at f2.0 is passable in quality. Image quality overall is good, however it lacks the definition that other cameras have.

Verdict

Based on features and real life performance, there is a consensus that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is the best camera phone in the market today. But the other phones are not far behind in terms of performance. Apple iPhone 6 still offers great photographic performance that has been a hallmark of iPhones since the introduction of the iPhone 4S years ago. And LG G4 offers some superior specs in some aspects while delivering camera performance at par with the others.

HTC One M9 seems to be on the losing end in the list. While it still provides good image quality, its performance is somewhat lacking compared to its competitors though it is not that far behind.

In the end, it all depends on user preference. All the phones listed here are very good camera phones. And if you are not looking in particular for any feature or capability, you will not go wrong with these phones.

All About Street Photography

Street Photography is perhaps one of the oldest genres of photography today. It is also a genre of photography that is very much widely seen, whether it is in the newspaper, the internet, or even in the art gallery. And with the popularity of image-sharing sites and social media services like Flickr and Instagram, street photography has become more popular than ever.

It is easy to see why as these photographs provide a visual treat at first glance, only to be hit hard by the message or theme these photos portray as we look closely at them. It is this characteristic that makes street photography compelling.

Street Photography Defined

But what exactly is street photography? Let not the name fool you, street photography is not about taking photos of the neighborhood. Instead, it is defined as a genre that captures scenes depicting the human condition or way of life in a given moment at an outdoor setting. In other words, street photography is about people rather than places.

human-890963_1280

As with any genre of photography, you don’t just take any photo. In this case, you don’t just take photos of people out on the streets. There is an element of composition that must be in place in the photo. There should be at least a distinct artistry also that the photo should possess.

Despite these rules in place, as a street photographer, you don’t get to plan what you want to shoot. There are no preparations in place beforehand nor would you make your subject do a predetermined action. In street photography, things just happen and you capture them when they happen. You just rely on your keen sense of observation, timing, and instinct to capture the moments that encapsulate the slice of a subject or subjects’ life at the right time.

The Challenge and Rewards of Street Photography

taxi-cab-381233_1280

This aspect of street photography, admittedly, is something that even experienced photographers still find challenging from time to time. Indeed, it takes experience, skill, and a level of perception to find and compose that right moment on photo.

There is also a matter of possibly getting “caught” in the middle of photography, ruining a moment as well as being a source of embarrassment. One has to learn to be discreet or at least be able to hide the fact that you are trying to take a photo of the subject or subjects in question.

As challenging as this genre is, specializing in street photography provides a sense of satisfaction and reward, especially when you get to capture such moments on your camera and be able to effectively tell the story of the photo based on what you captured.

There is also a level of serendipity street photography provides as you discover elements and themes you never thought about when you captured it. At times, the viewer may see some more things about the photo that you never thought of in the first place, giving rise to different interpretations that would enrich the photograph as a work of art in the process.

The Photographer as an Artist

man-343674_1280

With these elements in place, the street photographer is not just a photographer anymore. He has become a visual artist who creates works of art that convey meaning to the viewer. Then again, any photographer can be considered a visual artist too.

In any case, being an artist entails that you have a responsibility to your audience create an output that is of quality and has meaning. Let your photographs convey what you want to express and what story you wish to share even if you don’t explicitly say it. A good photograph tells you all you need to know form that single frame that you captured.

Nine Questions To Ask The Wedding Photographer

Weddings are one of those very important and life-changing events that deserve not just to be documented, but to be documented beautifully well, especially in photographs. Thus, it is important to have a good photographer (or photographers in some cases) who are capable to beautifully capture such a memorable life event.

wedding-91797_1280

For couples who are about to make a choice as to who will get to photograph your wedding, there are a number of factors to take into consideration that a prospective photographer should address. Here are nine questions couples should ask and photographers should be able to answer before making a deal.

Is the photographer available on the wedding date?

Basic as this question may seem, it is the most important question and must be asked first before proceeding. It will help save a lot of time and effort in the process. If the photographer is available on the date, make sure you get a written commitment of such availability.

What is the photographer’s style of photography?

Like any other visual artists, photographers have their own style in shooting and composing their photos. If you don’t have any particular style in mind, check out their portfolios and see if their photography style is to your liking.

At the same time, don’t hesitate as well to express whatever idea you have in mind for the photos. Just remember to balance those ideas of yours with what the photographer has in mind to get the most satisfying results possible.

What is the photographer’s wedding photography experience?

As with any job hiring, experience is a big factor in choosing a wedding photographer. Check out the photographer’s portfolio and see not only the style but also the extent of the photography coverage that was done for the weddings. It is very important in this case to check the most recent wedding coverages the photographer has made to help you get a good idea of what to expect should he cover your wedding.

What would be the budget and the details of the package?

Budget is always a primary factor especially for a wedding; it is important to make sure you get your money’s worth with the package that you choose. Most wedding photographers offer different packages depending on the budget. Check the details of the packages they offer as to what are included. Some packages include engagement photos as well so that’s something to consider as well as far as budget and convenience is concerned. Also important is to take note of the payment terms for the service to help ensure a smooth transaction.

Are there other personnel and/or equipment involved in the coverage as well?

camera-690163_1280

Some photographers, especially the big studio photographers, have other photographers and personnel working for them, perhaps one of them would be doing the job instead. So it’s best to get know as well the associate photographer in these cases and check out their photography style as noted above.

Also, check to see if the photographers would be bringing in their own equipment like for lighting to determine if you would need to provide additional lighting at the venue. If yes, make sure that their equipment would neither be bulky nor obstructive.

How long will it take for the photos, proofs, and the wedding album to be available?

One thing to note is that some photographers may take months before in processing the photos they took of a wedding. Having an idea of how long of a timeframe they would need before you get to see the photos would at least help manage the long wait it may take.

What happens if the photographer cannot make it on the wedding date? 

While we have already determined the photographer’s availability on the wedding in the first question, sometimes there are instances that a photographer may not be able to cover your wedding at the last minute, especially due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control. Thus, it is very important that the photographer beforehand should readily provide contact information of another photographer who would be available that day to fulfill the job at hand.

Is the photographer willing to stay on in case the event lasts longer than scheduled?

Sometimes a wedding event may go beyond the timeframe that was originally planned. It is important to ask the photographer if is willing to cover the event beyond the original timeframe. If so, it is important to note the photographer’s overtime policy if any, as well as possible charges that may be in place.

Will there be a contract provided?

It is very important that the photographer will provide you a contract that will detail in writing the nature of the service that will be provided, addressing the questions raised here and other pertinent details. Never deal with a photographer who would not provide you a contract for any reason whatsoever to avoid possible headaches that may arise in the future that will spoil what should be joyous occasion.

Why Choose RAW Over JPEG?

There is a war that has been going on for quite a while in the realm of digital photography. To be specific, it is a war as to which is better between two digital image file formats out there: RAW and JPEG.

As far as usage is concerned, JPEG has a clear advantage as it is the default image file format used in digital cameras, as well as in other devices likes computers and smartphones. Being the default system, many users, especially casual photographers, have adopted it, mainly for the sake of convenience.

But being widely used does not necessarily mean it is better in terms of quality. And if you ask many avid and professional photographers, RAW provides the better image quality hands down.

NOTABLE QUALITIES

But what makes RAW the better digital image format than JPEG quality-wise? We have listed down some of its notable qualities below:

1. Great level of detail
An image recorded in the RAW format provides a greater level of detail. For instance, it can process billions of colors compared to mere millions a JPEG file can process, adding more nuances of color shades in an image.

nature-591708_1280

In addition, RAW records brightness levels ranging from 4,096 to 16,384 far more than the 256 levels in JPEG. What this means is that you can make more and better adjustments on your image without sacrificing overall image quality. And we’ll talk more about editing RAW images later.

2. Complete image information
Every image contains a lot of data which take up a huge amount of file space. And in RAW, every information available in the image is recorded, from the metadata to the most minor aspects of the image, which explains why RAW files are larger in file size. In contrast, JPEG compresses the image file itself. While this is helpful so that the image will not take up significant storage space, some information gets also lost in the process, notably information in the image which have provided greater detail of the image.

3. Better, non-destructive editing
As noted earlier, RAW files have the advantage of providing more and better adjustments that can done to the image without sacrificing greater image quality. In addition, RAW files are unprocessed so you can use more tools like sharpening algorithms that would provide better output as opposed to the tools built in JPEG that does some processing beforehand but may have resulted in less than satisfactory level of quality.

computer-767781_1280

What’s better about editing images in RAW is that even if you made a mistake in correcting an image, you can still go back to the original image and “correct” it from there. That is because RAW does not actually let you make adjustments on the file itself. Rather, any adjustments you make are being translated into a set of instructions as to how the file will be saved in another format like JPEG for instance. This is in contrast to JPEG where any adjustments you make are saved on the file and you cannot undo them once they are saved.

STORAGE CONSIDERATIONS

As mentioned earlier, RAW files take up a lot of space, something that has been a source of concern for quite a while. However, things have changed in recent years. While in the past, limited storage was a primary consideration for some to be hesitant in adapting the RAW format, this no longer holds true today. Affordable storage options like hard drives and memory cards offering large storage space are now prevalent in the market.
The availability of these storage solutions today has made the RAW format a more attractive format of choice than it was a few years ago.

MORE RAW-CAPABLE CAMERAS

Another thing going for RAW these days is the availability of cameras in the market that can now capture images in RAW. While cameras that can shoot RAW were limited in the past to DSLRs, now this capability has been extended to other camera types, some of them even point-and-shoot ones. Thanks to the capabilities of these new cameras, more users are becoming aware of RAW and its qualities and is becoming a popular image format especially among budding photographers or those who want better quality on their photos.

A FORMAT FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

woman-759970_1280

RAW is a file format specially made for photography, providing the most accurate and detailed information of an image. For photographers, every detail is important even the tiniest one. So it is important that these details are represented as vivid and true as possible, something a format like RAW provides very well enough.

So if you are someone who is serious about photography or at least would like to get better quality on the images you shoot, then going for RAW is the most logical option without a doubt.

Sports Photography: Choosing the Right Equipment

Sports photography is one of the most exciting fields to cover as a photographer. Who would want to miss an opportunity to capture the action, the winning moments, and everything else in the thrilling world of sports? To manage to accomplish one such feat is an honor and privilege in itself as you get to see your photograph and the moment it captures, preserved for posterity and the appreciation of those who get to see it.

Considering the importance of sports photography, it is important that as a photographer, you should have the right equipment to do the job well. Admittedly, choosing the right equipment is a challenge in itself, especially if you have little idea as to what you would need in the first place. To help you make the right choices, here are some things you should be looking for in your sports photography equipment

Camera

By default, your camera should be a DSLR type so you can capture high quality images, not to mention make you look more professional. But you should not be looking for just any DSLR. A sports photographer should have a high-speed DSLR, one that can capture fast moving objects, in this case like the ones we see at many sports events. It is recommended that your DSLR should have a shutter speed of 1/500th of a second or higher.

In addition, your camera should have a fast servo motor that will let your camera solely focus on a certain subject even if the subject moves constantly, like a basketball player or football player during the game. Also, your camera should have a continuous shutter motor that allows you to take multiple frames per second, making sure every part of the action is captured and not miss what could be a winning shot, literally and figuratively.

If you can, try to invest in a second camera body that would be able to do the job in case your other camera is having issues with battery life or other issues that may arise in the middle of the job you’re doing as a photographer.

Lenses

Depending on the sporting event you will be covering, the type of lens you will need would vary. Chances are, you will need one type of lens for some sports that will allow you to be near the playing area like basketball, volleyball, or other similar sports, while another lens for other sports that would require you to be at a safe distance from the playing area like football. In these cases, the lenses should a focal length of at least 50 mm and can be zoomed up to 300 mm or more.

In any case, as a sports photographer, you will need a wide variety of lenses for various events and situations that may arise. Try to invest in different lenses as much as possible, ranging from wide angle lens to a telephoto lens. Also remember to bring not just one lens with you at your photography work.

Other Equipment

A good photographer is someone who is well-prepared for any occasion. And there are those moments when you find yourself having little battery or storage left in the camera that would have caused you to panic. It is always a good idea to bring spare batteries and memory cards in your bag in case of such emergencies so you will be able to capture every moment.

Also, if the situation calls for it, bring a sturdy tripod with you to be able to capture the action better with the benefit of stability the tripod provides. Alternately, you can use a monopod to do the job if the tripod would be too bulky for you.

You may also need to have speed lights, as well as everything to hook them up, if you are covering big games or games being held indoors for some better lighting.

Never forget as well to have a rain cover to protect your gear if in case it rains at the venue. It is always better to be on the safe side than be sorry later with the expenses you would have to spend in fixing your equipment that got soaked in the rain.

==========

Knowing the equipment you need and having them at your disposal at whatever sporting event you will cover is very important for sports photography. As long as you have the proper equipment for the game, you have at least taken a step forward in becoming a skilled sports photographer.

Traditional vs. Reportage Wedding Photography: Which One is For You?

With the evolution of photography and media in recent years, there is also an evolution happening as well in the realm of wedding photography. This evolution has brought about not only change in the style of capturing photographs of such events.

In particular, this has brought up two different and distinct styles of wedding photography: the traditional wedding photography and the reportage wedding photography. Quite often, this has been a subject of debate among wedding photographers as to which is the best, not to mention a source of confusion among those who are about to getting married not only on the aspect of what they are but also as to which would be the best for them.

To answer these questions, it is important first to know what these different wedding photography styles are about and what they bring to the table as far as the output is concerned.

TRADITIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

As the term implies, traditional wedding photography is the oldest style of wedding photography that has been practiced by photographers for years since photography began. It is the photography style your parents and the ones before them were used to when they got married.

Traditional wedding photography is considered to be the more “rigid” and “predictable” style as the photographer has taken note of a set of moments to capture, with everything planned out beforehand. It usually is characterized by formal setups with people looking stiff at the camera. As such, candid moments are rarely captured by this type of wedding photography, creating an impression that the images produced look “fake” or “stiff” in the sense that the genuine emotions of a wedding are not perfectly encapsulated by these images.

Also due to the “rigid” nature of this photography style, it is also a style that is time consuming. Photographers of this style take more time in setting up the areas where the photos will be taken and other pertinent details of the shots to be planned, making sure the elements are set up the way the photographer envisioned it to be.

REPORTAGE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

The name may imply that there is an element of a documentary or journalistic report. In essence, that is what reportage wedding photography tries to convey with the photos. This style of photography has become more popular in recent years as the preference for realism in photography has become the trend around the same time. Current trends indicate that this particular wedding photography style is the style of choice among many couples who plan to get married.

Reportage wedding photography aims to tell the story of the wedding as it happens naturally, with less to no direction or supervision being provided by the photographer. Thus, raw, spontaneous moments and emotions of people at the wedding are captured. For photographers, they get more freedom to capture any moment that are noted to be recorded, without having to rely on a preplanned list of moments to be taken.

TAKING THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

With such contrasting styles and approaches that are popular in wedding photography these days, there are some photographers who manage to combine elements of both styles into one. It would not be surprising to see in their portfolios some photos of a wedding shot in reportage style while other photos were taken in the traditional style. In addition, employing both styles provide an opportunity for photographers to be creative in documenting the wedding, employing one particular style in moments that may be deemed appropriate by the photographer.

Nevertheless, there is a dominant style that can be gleaned at such photos, as only a few photographers have managed to acquire true expertise of both styles. More often than not, majority of the photographers choose to develop expertise in a single style of photography and at times, employ elements of other styles to make a unique photography style that will be distinguished from the rest.

WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE

Now that we know the different wedding photography styles, the question remains as to which one you would choose. Ultimately, the choice of wedding photography style is up to personal preferences as each style is suited to fit certain preferences and tastes of the photographer and of the couple.

If you have yet to decide on a photography style you would like to see in your wedding, check out the works of different photographers who employ either style of photography and see which style you would prefer.
