Wedding photography is a specialty in photography that is primarily focused on the photography of events and activities relating to weddings. It may include other types of portrait photography of the couple before the official wedding day, such as a pre-wedding engagement session photographs are later used for the couple wedding invitations On the official wedding day, the photographer will attempt to provide portrait photography, as well as documentary photography coverage to document the different wedding events and rituals throughout the wedding day. The term contemporary wedding photography is used to describe wedding photography that is not of a traditional nature. The emphasis in contemporary photography is to capture the story and atmosphere from the day, so that the viewer has an appreciation of what the wedding was like, rather than a series of pre-determined poses.
