A lot of photography now is a more candid style, take for instance, the bride and groom posed, not looking at the camera, but looking at each other. Pinterest is filled with images of brides and grooms kissing, walking and looking romantically into each other’s eyes. These photos are great, but we feel that real, true moments photographed are just as important, if not more so. Photojournalism is basically photographing something real that is going on without interrupting it or posing it at all. While posed photos are great, photos of real moment can capture what your day really felt like in a different way. Real emotion is captured, often times something sweet, funny, or romantic. Now that we have been married for quite a few years, these are the photos that we treasure the most and we always strive to make these types of images a priority on our couples days too. It takes patience to capture great candid photos, and most importantly you need to think ahead, it is not easy for sure! You really can’t just walk right up, because whoever is involved will see you and the actual happening is then done! Anticipating what is going to happen next, is a big part. We are always working on becoming better real moment photographers. Check out the photos below, which are all 100% real moments for some examples. I would love to post more, so hopefully we will do another post sometime soon with more!
They were so happy!
What a sweet couple! We even got to sit with them during the dinner.
LOVE this photo of Adrian dancing with the little girl! Adrian was one of the most caring people we’ve met, and is going to make one of the most caring doctors ever!
This was right when everyone got out of the limo, and the little boy clung on to his Dad’s hand. Their wedding was being filmed for NBC, and a swarm of videographers were around. I think it shows how with Dad, anything is possible!
Anxiously awaiting guests on the wedding day!
The bride’s grandmother was given the bouquet, a complete shocker surprise!
A sweet moment, just before she walked down the aisle,
