"Photojournalistic Style"

"Hands-Off Approach Style"

"Portrait Journalism Style"

This style is, in most situations, the most effective method of event photography, and one that most people prefer (especially brides).  We tend to keep our presence as unobstrusive as possible, while at the same time remaining close by and present with our cameras at all times. Here, the camera can capture some great artistic close-up shots, a few informal gathering shots of family and friends (taken quickly during a break in the action), and as many candid shots as time and circumstances allow. 

With this more traditional approach, the emphasis is mainly on portraits and posed shots.  Here, shots are set-up for art, scenery, emotion and fashion.  To help create these shots, a tripod and a good portrait lens is often the key.

"Hands-Off Approach Style"

Here, our main tool is a good telephoto lens.  If you wish for the presence of your photographer to be quiely in the background, so your guests, forgetting about the camera, may be more themselves and act more freely ("wild and crazy...?" ).  This approach allows for a greater likelyhood of unique candid shots.
