Choosing a wedding photographer may sound to be an easy task, but, it should be taken very seriously. Though every photographer has his or her unique style of photography, these days professional wedding photography is dominated by two major commercial styles, namely traditional photography and photojournalism. Traditional photography is considered to be less creative form of photography which is performed in a controlled environment and often produces good quality results because the subjects are captured with maximum pose and lighting effects.

The major point of confusion between clients and photographers with many photo assignments, both editorial and commercial, is the scope of the usage allowed by the photographer and those expected by the client. This confusion often results because the photographer fails to address the usage issue up front, instead relying on “boilerplate” terms and conditions on the invoice to limit the use, while clients are sometimes ignorant about the issue of usage altogether, believing “we paid for it, we own it.”
