Photojournalistic Weddings

The Greatest Love Story Ever Told—in Pictures

Photojournalistic Weddings

Photo: © Andy Samaniego

To a bridal couple, no other love story compares with their own. Their wedding is a unique event, like no other. The photographer must ask himself: how will they remember this day years from now? Will my photographs bring back the memories of this day? Or will they look like someone else's wedding?

Cutesy photographs following current trends will be locked to the time period of the trends, like hairdos and fashion. This seminar introduces you to the art of capturing memories; not just posed shots, but capturing significant moments. The method is photojournalistic; the storyline, timely; the style, timeless.

What will be covered

  • What photojournalistic wedding photography is and what it is not
  • How it differs from other styles of wedding photography
  • Examples of shots
  • Recommended equipment
  • How to market the style
  • Preparing the "photojournalistic" album — timeless, not trendy
  • Pricing
  • Digital workflow

Who should attend

The one-day seminar will be useful to photographers - who are already doing weddings but want to ramp up their product and services - who have not decided how best to enter the field of wedding photography - who are doing photojournalistic weddings by ear, without formal training


To gain the most from the discussions and demonstrations on photography, you should have completed PCCI's Basic Photography workshop or have good understanding of and experience with basic principles.

What to bring

Participants are encouraged to bring their wedding albums and photos for critique.
