 and white. Black and white photography allows the photographer to capture the emotion and feeling of an event without distraction from what’s going on in the background. Most photographers and photojournalists alike recommend taking both color and black and white, especially out of consideration for the parents’ and grandparents’ preferences, which are usually color. You can also have a photojournalist take your engagement and bridal shots. Their approach can make them fun, casual and timeless, creating those great shots that you will want to hang in your home as art. When choosing a photojournalist ask to see complete albums to get a good feel for their work making sure that the person you are speaking to will be the person taking the photos. As with a traditional photographer, you will be spending a lot of time with this person on a very impor- tant occasion, so make sure that your personalities align. Due to the creative and artistic aspect of photojournalism it is essential to ask even more detailed questions. Ask them how they would approach your wedding. Inquire about their background and experience, as well as what brought them to photojournalism. Talk about your likes and dislikes in photography. Once you and your fiancé meet with a few different photographers and see for yourself the various types of photos a pho- tojournalistic approach results in, you’ll be better equipped to make the comparison between traditional photography and pho- tojournalism. Then you will be able to decide which style is best for you. §  LOVE § MARRIAGE § HOME § LIFE § 57
