These photo’s are candid, yet done so with some direction and styling—it has an approachable feel and a relaxed result. Mike Staff Productions’ photographers will look for moments but also won’t be afraid to direct the couple ever so slightly if inspiration has taken over. 

One of the most popular wedding photography styles, photo-journalistic captures candid or spontaneous pictures of people, décor and action—in the moment.



Think of photos in your grandparents or parents’ wedding album, classic images are those that stand the test of time—striking, gorgeous and a bit formal. 

A traditional wedding photographer or videographer will provide you with well lit, classic wedding portraits. The majority of their work will feature posed images of the couple and their families.

Artistic wedding photography styles


Not all portraits have to be a couple in full frame looking at the camera. That’s where artistic wedding photography styles comes into play.  With Pinterest taking over weddings, it’s easy for things to look similar—when you can deliver unique and artistic moments that are only for that couple, it becomes very special.

Photography is not just about the photographer (especially at Mike Staff Productions). A couple’s willingness to have fun and enjoy the moment can take a photo to the next level.


Lighting is a key component of stylized photography.  Stylized wedding photography and videography blends the storytelling elements of photojournalism with elements of traditional photography and videography.

Images often have an artistic nature, using blurred backgrounds, different levels of focus and a variety of angles. The stylized shooter will create the environment for your natural emotion and personalities to be reflected and provide coaching to look your best without creating overdosed photographs.
