Wedding photographers who shoot in a photojournalistic style spend most of their day documenting the wedding day as it happens without intervening or directing. Their goal is to take images of the day as they happen and not create or setup images. This often leads to the misconception that wedding photojournalists donâ€™t take ANY posed portraits or group shots.
When you are hiring a wedding photographer, donâ€™t hire someone whom you donâ€™t really like on a personal basis! Their photos might be great, but remember that your photographer is going to be a very substantial participant in your wedding day, not only capturing your memories, but becoming a big part of them!
If youâ€™re thinking of hiring multiple photographers for the sole reason of getting lots of images and viewpoints, donâ€™t forget that you shouldnâ€™t skimp on quality. Itâ€™s more important for you to focus on the talent and portfolio of the photographer(s) you are considering rather than the number of photographers who will be at your wedding.
