Everyone takes pictures at weddings. Being a wedding photographer, however, brings added levels of responsibility, skill and artistry. There are ever increasing elements of photojournalism and storytelling involved in photographing modern weddings. What seems to have remained constant, even with the newer styles in photography, is the ability to capture the love and emotions of the couple in a way that seems uniquely theirs.
Ironically, all the requirements of the photographer to produce these unique images usually becomes compressed into very limited time frames due to the nature of the wedding day celebration. It is not uncommon for a professional wedding photographer to be asked to produce all of the requested family and friends with the bride and groom photographs, but additionally the romantic and love story imagery, all within the space of 1 to 2 hours. All the while expecting these images taken in such a limited time frame to compare favorably to images that the brides and grooms see in commercials, print ads and movies. All of which of course commonly are produced in hours or sometimes days of preparation with huge budgets and support staffs.
