OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE
Our unique style of wedding photography is deeply rooted in wedding photojournalism with a focus on natural emotion and expressive imagery. We constantly experiment with new tools and techniques and blend various photography styles to challenge our creativity and tell compelling stories.
Below are examples of each of our photography styles and the specific areas of focus which makes our wedding photography unique. Our typical approach combines elements of each style, adjusted for factors like the location, lighting, and client preferences.
Our Signature Style
Our Signature Style is clean, high definition with a fine art aesthetic. Skin tones are accurate and the natural colors of the scene are slightly muted creating a beautiful and timeless image.
Our Romantic Style
Our Romantic Style can be described as soft and whimsical, taking advantage of the beautiful light available during golden hour. This style is perfect for scenes in nature and rustic wedding venues.
Our Creative Style
Our Creative Style incorporates advanced camera and flash techniques used to create compelling and creative effects. Always in search of reflections, silhouettes, foregrounds and perfect symmetry, you’ll see our photographers sneaking behind objects, shooting off mirrors, and finding different perspectives. Whatever it takes to get the shot! The idea is to turn ordinary into extraordinary through finding the interest of the composition in a scene that the average eye may not notice.
Our Creative Style also applies to our Night Time Photography. For these shots, we again use advanced camera and lighting techniques to create interesting and dramatic effects.
Our Photojournalistic Style
Wedding Photojournalism takes awareness of surroundings, knowledge of human tendencies, and patience. Each image we take serves a purpose, captures emotion and tells a story. We’re always paying close attention to the environment, listening in on conversations and anticipating that smile, laugh, tear, or hug. We have our crop in mind, our lighting set up perfectly, and we’re waiting for that expression, always placing ourselves in the right place at the right time.
Macona's Area of Focus
Focus on Family
We understand that weddings are more than just unions between two individuals, they are unions of two families.
To celebrate family, we ensure that we devote proper time and attention to the family members. This manifests itself with beautiful emotional moments like the ones below:
Focus on Natural Posing
Whether you’re stiff as a board or used to being in front of the camera, we’ll make sure we give you as much direction as you need to create natural, comfortable looking images. During the creative session we we will place you in an environment where you’re comfortable and provide cues which will generate natural emotion and reactions, allowing your personalities and affection for each other to be the focal point of the images.
Focus on Having Fun
We love setting up moments where you can get out of your comfort zone and be a little silly, fun, and playful. During those moments, and especially in between, we’re snapping away to get those smiles and natural emotions.
Focus on The Details
You’ve spent thousands of dollars on the details of your wedding like the rings, flowers, your dress, invitations, your wedding cake etc and we’re not going to let it slip past us! We capture the details of your wedding with the same attention and with many of the same techniques as we’ve described above. Your day moves quickly and while you may not have the time to sit back and fully appreciate all the details, we’ll be sure to have gorgeous pictures of them for you to enjoy.
