Quirky wedding photography

Traditional flowers, romance and pastel-pink color palettes might leave you cold. If you’re more of a fun-loving, totally individual type, there are plenty of laid-back and quirky photographers who specialise in capturing free-spirited, out-of-the-ordinary wedding parties that don’t take themselves too seriously. This type of photographer can be a great way of busting wedding nerves and helping everyone to relax, especially if lots of your wedding guests don’t already know each other. Some quirky photographers can photoshop you flying through the air, bring along props to hold, think up games to play (the groomsmen carrying the bridesmaids in a piggyback race is a favourite) or devise whole photo stories like this epic zombie-themed wedding shoot.

Fine art wedding photography

What’s often called “fine art style” wedding photography is usually quite traditional and classic, but with added filmic touches and influences from fashion editorial shoots in magazines. Wedding photographers who shoot in this style often have a background in fashion or portrait photography, and specialise in making your wedding snaps look romantic, dreamlike and, above all, beautiful.
