Photo Journalism: Seasonal Weddings that Tell a Story

By: adayofbliss


You only get married once, if youíre lucky, and itís understandable that you want that day to be perfect. That means perfect location, perfect dress and perfect photography. For most wedding couples the idea of perfect is accompanied by a perfect season. Whether your favorite time of year involves a layer of pure white snow or scattered color leaves in hills and dales, choosing the season for your wedding will make a big difference to the overall wedding story, memories and of course the imagery that is recalled in wedding photographs, albums and photo journalism of your special day.

Different seasons also present different challenges for the bride and the groom but also for the wedding photo journalist. Everyone must take into account the potential for seasonal challenges like ice or rain. This can be done creatively and professional photo journalists have been known to take advantage of these seasons to create extra special images.

The summer wedding story:

If you live near, or can get to water, there are few more spectacular settings for a wedding, or for your wedding photographs. The beach is also of course the perfect venue for the wedding, the reception and the moonlit romance when the party is over. The summer wedding can be formal or more casual with rolled up pants and short wedding skirts perfectly acceptable.

The winter wedding story:

Some of the most spectacular wedding photo journalism has been photographed in the snow. The beautiful white powder allows for amazing contrasts and shadows and even though you might get a little chilly, it is well worth the result. A gorgeous white wrap may be in order for the winter bride.

The spring wedding story:

No doubt the traditional favorite wedding season of wedding photographers, brides, and grooms. Spring is a time of new life, warm weather and new growth blossoming everywhere. Plan a spring wedding for the mild weather and the beauty of spring color.

The fall wedding story:

The fall wedding is all about color and if you love the oranges, reds and browns of autumn, the wedding photo journalist will be able to create beautiful images using this natural backdrop. Consider fall colors for the bride, bridesmaids and bouquets too. Although not traditional, these contemporary themes will not soon be forgotten.

While some wedding professionals may see the seasons and the accompanying weather challenges as obstacles, others welcome the variety and opportunities for creativity that weather offers. It is worthwhile looking for these professionals because they will be more adept at coping with anything the weather might throw at you; and any other unexpected surprises. When looking for the right wedding photographer ask to see his or her portfolio and look for a variety of locations, season and styles in the work. You donít want your wedding images to look like everybody elseís.
