Woodside’s Photography has been a leader in fine portraiture photography since 1990 and the attention and detail we pour into our Wedding Portraiture reflects the same artistic expertise and creative expression seen in our family, maternity, children, and senior portraiture.
Our professional team of photographers strives to understand each bride’s individual personality and emotions to make all of the images a true work of art that can be cherished forever. We combine modern, photojournalistic, candid, romantic and traditional photography styles to create original, one-of-a-kind images. At every wedding we look to create different and unique images and stray from the average cookie cutter photographs. We provide you a personal guarantee and assurance that you will be more than thrilled with the images of the most important day of your life.
Your wedding consultation is one of the most important aspects of planning your special day and coordinating the photography schedule. It’s an idea, wish list, creative jam session with structure! We want to get down on paper and put images in our minds what your day will look like and set an agenda to make all of it happen!
There are two main styles in wedding photography right now: traditional and photojournalistic. Traditional wedding photography involves posed shots and formals with the traditional shots you’ve seen from older wedding photos.
Wedding photojournalism involves candid shots and is based on gathering unscripted reactions and gathering photos from a distance. This is less intrusive, which creates images that are un-posed, unscripted, and authentic; much like an observer who remains invisible.
Within traditional wedding photography, there are two types: documentary style (straight-on posed images) and the artistic style (adding creative flair/look to otherwise standard shots). Posed artistic wedding photography shots are great in the sense that the photographer, like in a fashion shoot, has control over the way the picture will look and is only limited by their vision. Documentary styles strive to just capture the moment for what it was
Often there is an overlap of the traditional photography style and photojournalistic style. This is often done by having the lead photographer pose the shots and a second shooter captures images candidly off to the side. We combine modern, photojournalistic, candid, romantic and traditional photography styles to create original, one-of-a-kind images.
During your consultation you will meet with the head photographer (and team) for your wedding to discuss your day and ideas. You and the photographic team will go over in detail your expectations, as well as theirs. You will create a time line of the days events, and do a walk through of your venue(s), (if applicable) to ensure a smooth and stress-free event. We want to be sure there are no surprises, so advanced planning is the key.
