It seems that many young brides are saying that they dont want an album that looks like their mothers. They say that they dont want those same stuffy posed pictures. Instead they want that hip new Photojournalistic Approach. Or so I hear. Have any photographers looked at their mothers albums? I have. The pictures are usually faded, and the poses seem to be a little less natural/uninteresting than most modern poses. And of course the clothes and hairstyles look ridicules (the same way that todays hair styles and clothes will look ridicules in 20 + years). In reality the modern posed album bares little resemblance to the posed album of 20 years ago. Here in Texas many (not all) brides still prefer the posed album with a scattering of candids. Some (not many) are totally uninterested in candids altogether. Candids can be excellent for capturing the emotion and flavor of the event and they often make beautiful exhibition photos (great for getting brides through the door). But the posed shots still seem to be the meat and potatoes and the candids seem to be the icing on the cake. Has anyone else noticed this? I realize that many photographers have built their business around their candid technique and that they attract brides who want that look, but is it safe to say that a majority or at least significant number of brides prefer the posed shots (provided the photographer is skilled enough to get them done in an expedient manner) as well as some candids?
