Wedding photography, what’s your style?

Bruno Rosa shoots his wedding photography in a very journalistic style most often described as “creative documentary.” but doesn’t think wedding photography should be limited by a “genre.” While he is very hands-off and unobtrusive in his coverage of the day he does believe that there is a time and place for gorgeous, casually posed images of the bride and groom together. So while he won’t stop you and make you pose while cutting the cake, he would like about half an hour (or more!) alone with you both (if possible) sometime during the day to create some images of you without your wedding party or guests looking on.
He also puts a ton of energy and time into your “creative portraits.” These are the photos of just the two of you. He looks for interesting light, angles and backgrounds, and often use unusual, experimental techniques to turn these portraits into works of art that you will want to hang on your walls.

Do you still take posed family images ?

Absolutely!  A wedding photography collection would not be complete without good details and family photos, and he takes all the photographs you would expect out of any wedding photographer. But his goal is to also go past those expectations and give you wedding photography that you never even imagined. A few weeks before your wedding he will send you a questionnaire covering the details of the day and among the other questions is a list of posed images – these are the family groupings that Bruno traditionally photographs at each wedding he covers. You will have space to write in your own additional groupings. Please bear in mind that the hallmark of Bruno’s coverage is journalistic and real-time, so a very long list of posed images will hinder his ability to cover the event in a documentary manner. He provides you with nine groupings and strongly suggests your final list include no more than twelve or thirteen total. These groupings are quick, easy, and largely informal and Bruno tries to make them pleasant and enjoyable for everyone involved!

Can we give you a shot list of wedding photography we want you to take?

Other than the family groupings, no. It is very helpful to know what important relatives and friends are coming to your day, and if any events bear special significance, but repeated requests for posed images and having Bruno work “from a checklist” is counterproductive to the work you’ve seen here on his website. “Shot lists” provided by many major bridal magazines are a great idea, but please understand that Bruno generally will capture those images without prompting. Providing him with a very long list of college groupings or high school friends or extended family at the reception will result in a lesser amount of documentary coverage and more time spent rounding up guests to check the groupings off of a list.

My fiancé is uncomfortable having his picture taken. How can you help him on the wedding day? 

Bruno is a very calm, mellow person who tends to blend into the scene rather than bring attention to himself  and his cameras. That, combined with his documentary style, will have you both used to him within the first half hour of your getting-ready time. Most couples tell him it felt like e was just one of the gang, hanging out with everyone. The only time you’ll really be aware of the cameras is during the family group shots and the creative portraits, and during this time he will guide you through everything. You can just be yourselves, and he will take care of those wedding photography that you will cherish for a lifetime.
