Wedding Photojournalism - Current Photography Trend (Part 1)

An article from

To truly understand the art of Wedding Photojournalism, it is important to have a good idea of what Photojournalism really is.

Photojournalism is a process in which the photographer collects edits and publishes images that tell a story. There are a number of distinctive characteristics which set this style apart from others. First, the pictures are laid out in a chronological timeline; secondly they are an objective representation of what really transpired capturing the heartbeat of the story and finally the photos come together to provide a narrative that tells the viewers what actually transpired. Rather than asking the subjects to pose for photographs, a photojournalist is always ready to spring into action. This creates a more vivid representation of the story where subjects are seen in a more natural light providing for a much more lively result.

Photojournalism's Brief History
Photojournalism became popular in the middle of the twentieth century, when publications such as Life, Sports Illustrated and The Daily Graphic began using this style on their pages. Photojournalism became more and more progressive as photographic technology improved and became more mobile. No longer do photojournalists need to log around rolls of film and uncomfortable lighting equipment; digital cameras provide all this and much more. This new technology enabled the photographer to do what they do best: capture the stories of their subjects and tell them in photographs.

Wedding photojournalism is very much like its older sibling. Perfected by Dennis Reggie, who is considered by many as the father of wedding photojournalism, the style has taken the industry by storm. This new and exciting way of capturing changed the rules of wedding photography dramatically: no longer do couples go through boring checklists of poses at their weddings; gone are the days of the wedding ceremony having to come to an abrupt stop, just because it is time to pose for photos. Wedding photojournalists records every shot as they happen without directed posing, or extra lighting setup. By constantly watching the wedding and taking natural photos of what is transpiring, wedding photojournlists are able to put the natural emotion and the feel of the wedding event into every shot.
