Why Hagop’s Photography
When you look at your parents’ and grandparents’ wedding albums, the photos probably look stiff and posed since the film used in cameras then was slow (iso) and even a slight movement by the subject would result in a blurred photograph.
This changed during the last 15 years, when film speeds became faster. Photojournalism used by the news media recently started to appear in wedding photography. For instance, Hollywood stars wanted their wedding photographs to reflect photojournalism.
How we work:
Hagop is the main photographer at each event. Posing is done during the pre-wedding photography and during the formals after the wedding ceremony.
Candid shots are always fun and we use them a lot in our wedding coverage. We rarely pose during the reception; it is captured with candid and photojournalism.
Ano is the photojournalistic style photographer. Her goal is to document your wedding. She focuses on the details and captures the portraits from a different angle with a telephoto lens.
Why clients like our style:
Clients include the portraiture in their albums since they want to include their own portraits and those of the family and bridal party. These are the photographs they give as gifts.Photojournalism and candid photographs are used in the bride and groom’s albums to tell the story of your wedding. Our sample albums at the studio reflect this, and we also have a couple of albums that are identical to what our clients ordered.
Your wedding is more than a job for us. It is our passion to capture you authentically and to document your special day in a unique way.
