It seems like photographers are always in one camp or another regarding there style. I read something interesting on the internet. I incorporated what Aperure photography's feeling are on the subject in the next paragraph.
There are two primary approaches to wedding photography that are recognized today: Traditional and Photojournalistic. About 5 % of our stlye is Traditional wedding photography provides for more classically posed images and a some degree of photographer control and interaction. The vast majority of our stlyle Editorial and Photojournalistic wedding photography which takes its cue from editorial reporting styles and focuses more on candid and unposed images with little photographer interaction. These are two extremes and many of today's photographers will fall somewhere in the middle of these two styles. A third style that is becoming more popular is a fashion-based approach. In contemporary/fashion-based wedding photography, photojournalistic images of the events of the day are combined with posed images that are inspired by editorial fashion photography as would be found in magazines like Vogue or Vanity Fair. This style often involves more innovative and dramatic post-processing of images.
It makes like much simpilier to shot in one style or another. And Aperture Photography can excel at all of them. But, the customers deserve more. Every wedding is different. The couple, the setting, the lighting and mood of the wedding.
So what is Aperture Photography ? We are wedding photographers in the New York City, Hudson Valley, Poughkeepsie, Albany and Saratoga areas of New York State, The taste ranges from edgey to formal.
Aperture Photography is a Photojournalistic, editoral and at time a traditional wedding photography.
