Chances are if you have ever thumbed through a fashion magazine you have seen editorial style photography first hand. Editorials are used to illustrate a story.. in the wedding genre, this style of photography is often referred to as “lifestyle wedding photography” or “artistic wedding photography” and tends to be less traditional. Many couples prefer this style of wedding photography as it really tells the story of your wedding day through the images.
With the increase in NYC elopements and other types of less traditional wedding celebrations.. more and more couples are moving away from the “classic wedding photography” style in favor or more creative options like editorial style wedding photography. So how do you decide if editorial style wedding photography is right for you? First let’s explore what this style of wedding photography is all about..
If you and your fiance have been planning your NYC wedding and noticed that you tend to like unique NYC wedding venues or hate the idea of posing for wedding photos for hours while you “stare at each other lovingly” then editorial wedding photography style may be right for you.
Editorial style of photography is typically captured with the intention of telling a story through the images and for very talented editorial style wedding photographers like ours, also relaying the emotion of that moment through the photographs!

After all, your wedding photography is one of the few tangible items you will have to remember everything after the big day is over!
