Traditional wedding photography is a posed or planned style. It is also called a classical style because it is the oldest and the most common style used for weddings.

The main goal and benefit of the traditional style is for a portrait-like album. The history of wedding photography stretches back to the year 1826 with the French inventor Joseph Nicephore Niepce who pioneered the art of photography and has taken some of the oldest known photographs.

His early methodical practice of photographing was passed down from generation to generation and was commonly dubbed the traditional style. His classic style was carried over into weddings.

The traditional style is methodical in it's form. Thinking in terms of a checklist, (or a numbered list) the traditional method provides the photo-artist a great deal of control in setting up the specific poses. The ability to control elements of an image allows the photo-artist to convey a logical flow of the wedding day so that the interaction between the photos and people after the fact, will keep intact the actual emotional interaction of the wedding day itself.
