BEWARE OF "STYLED" WEDDING PHOTOS

Posted by orlandoactorsstudio on February 24, 2014 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

What nowadays is being called a "Styled Wedding" is just another term for a staged wedding.  These shoots are the same as portrait, fashion, or family sessions in that lighting is set, people are posed, and the shot is taken over and over until it is perfect.


Seems like it would be great practice, and it is for portrait, fashion, or family sessions, but not for weddings.  Weddings are run and gun with most shots, and getting a second chance is not an option.  That's just the way it is with wedding & event photography.


The real problem I see with these staged weddings is that many photographers are using these photos in their advertising and on their websites without saying what they are.  To me it's basically false advertising.  Showing this type of product without stating they are not real wedding photos is only going to lead to a disappointed bride.


On our site and in all of our advertising we use actual wedding photos.  I feel this is the only way to show our clients what we can do in "Real World Situations".  To me showing perfect staged photography to a wedding client without letting them know what it is, is just asking for trouble and a dishonest practice.


It boils down to this, if you are a good wedding photographer there is no reason to show "Styled" photos.  Your real wedding photos should be enough to sell the bride & groom on your ability to capture their day.  If not then just maybe you should stick to portrait photography.


Thanks, Kurt

We just got back from a tasting offered to us by Melissa Rolander of "TOOJAY'S".  I have to say that I have eaten a lot of catered wedding food and most has not been very good, and  portion sizes were very small.  To my surprise this is not the case with TOOJAY'S.


The food was delicious, portion sizes were more than enough, and the pricing is very affordable.  They have a wide variety of dishes including traditional Jewish holiday meals.


They cater Weddings, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, Corporate Events, and Parties.  For more information you can contact Melissa Rolander at 407-429-9577, melissa.rolander@toojays.com
