As a wedding photographer in the industry for many years, I couldn't help but talk a little more in detail about my work and my style: wedding reportage.
I am a photographer who prefers spontaneous photos, and as I explained in another article on how to choose the best photographer for your wedding in Italy, for example I specialize in wedding reportage.
While posed photos were very fashionable in the 80s and 90s, today the spouses tend to prefer a more spontaneous style, like that of wedding reportage.
I love this genre because being borrowed from photo journalism it is a style that represents me as a photographer and as an artist.
The wedding reportage according to my point of view
In the first place for me it is essential to create a harmony with the spouses, trying to give them serenity and security, especially to brides.
Brides can be nervous on their wedding day with the anticipation surrounding the big event. As a photographer my task is to create a harmony with the spouses, and to create a reportage at the height of their dreams.
In wedding reportage it is also important to interpret the day taking into account the traditions linked to the couple's culture.
I am Sicilian and I have photographed many couples in my region, nevertheless I have also made wedding reportages in other areas of Italy and around the world. And one thing I have always focused on was to take into account the context in which I was photographing.
It is important in wedding reportage, if you do not know the culture thoroughly, to study and document yourself to better capture all the most significant moments of the wedding to be photographed.
My style of wedding reportage is based on emotion, on capturing the elegance of the day and on finding impressive views.
Although in the wedding reportage the photos are very spontaneous, there are also moments in the couple's pose. Photos with relatives, friends, witnesses are important for the couple and are clearly always included in the service.
I observe a lot the guests, the family of the groom and the bride, the witnesses, and I take spontaneous moments not only between the couple but also between the couple and the guests.
Photographic style for wedding
The reportage to marriage is not an easy style to create, as many may think. Not because the photos are spontaneous then it means that this photo shoot was easy to do.
It is important that a wedding reportage be done by a professional, this is because it takes speed of execution and thought, discipline and passion.
While shooting, I mentally construct a story throughout the day to deliver a wedding reportage that is the story of an important day.
In fact, as you can imagine, my images are not random but the result of years of study and experience in the field.
