Wedding photojournalism

Los Angeles Wedding Photojournalism

Wedding photojournalism, or commonly referred to as PJ by photographers, is based on the idea of using photography to capture the day with minimal influence from the photographer. Wedding photojournalism (Orange County and Los Angeles are the areas I service) is becoming quite popular due to the unscripted, natural reactions that brides and their family and friend give during the course of the day. Instead of the someone asking the subject to "say cheese," the subject is often captured from a distance to reveal genuine emotions. Be careful of the varying degrees of wedding photojournalism, where some acheive it through what is called posed wedding photojournalism. This still involves the photographer barking many orders throughout the day and also requires acting on the part of the couple.

Documentary Wedding Photography

Documentary wedding photography is basically documenting the day like a news event. This mostly involves photography that is not artistic and the point is to capture the day just like a bystander would see it. Documentary wedding photography differs from wedding photojournalism in that it is usually less artistic and more about the images speaking for themselves.
