What’s your favorite style for wedding photography?

There are a lot of Maryland Wedding Photographer Styles out there, so when you being searching for photographers to match up with, it’s important to know which style you gravitate towards!

To discover your match, search for wedding photographers on google or Instagram to see which images you gravitate towards and pay attention to how they are edited.

Do they have more of a film / grain look? Are they dark and moody… or more light and airy and pastel-like? My personal style is best described as “vibrant with a candid flare” as I do love colors and also more candid style images.

BUT… be wary of asking a photographer to alter their editing style…

Some clients ask photographers if they can change their normal way of editing to match their preferences (for instance, I recently had a couple ask me if I would be able to edit their wedding to be dark and moody). There’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with them asking me, but because that isn’t my style of editing, or how I shoot to edit, this wouldn’t be an ideal match.

As I said, I am a Vibrant and True to Color photo editor and shooter. In the photo above, you’ll see the colors are not muted out… and there’s a contrast to the colors that has some “kick” to it.

Again, colors are “true to reality” – without losing their vibrance. For me personally, I want to cover the true essence of the day, including the colors.

However, black and white photographs are always a part of my galleries. Nothing is more powerful than a solid black and white emotional photo! The lack OF any color really emphasizes the moment itself… see what I mean with this image below:

It’s okay if some Maryland wedding photographer styles seem to cross over… everyone is different and can bring a few hybrid styles into their own. Just remember to pick a photographer who’s style you really love versus selecting one you like and asking them to alter their style.
