High Fashion Wedding Photography
Have you ever flicked through a beautifully pieced wedding magazine, filled with what appears to be high-end shots? Each picture just claims the page for its own without a hint of hesitation. Well, the images that you’ve come across are more than likely what’s known as high fashion wedding photography. This style of imagery brings an upscale look to weddings, without interrupting the special moments of the day. So, in this article, we’re going to talk about high fashion wedding photography (in the basic sense) and what makes it so unique. So, if you want to learn more, stay tuned and read the rest of the post...
High Fashion Wedding Photography (An Introduction) - High fashion wedding photography is typically carried out by what’s called a high-end wedding photographer. The aim of the game is in the name, ‘high-end’ was it? If you think of the term ‘high-end’, quality comes to mind. High-end products are classed as the finer things in life and this is extended throughout this type of photography. The images have a posed yet luxurious feel about them that gives them a sense of dominance over other types of wedding photography in general. This can be seen throughout the images which we’ve placed throughout this article.

High Fashion Wedding Photography (Inspiration) - Much inspiration for this style of imagery comes from magazines, elegant commercially used images/ footage and of course social media. Social media brings everyone together. So, we dare say the likes of celebrities and their wedding choices make the cut for inspiration. In all honesty, in this line of work, some of a luxury photographers' clients may even be celebrities so, taking a look around to see what you’re up against (as the photographer who is expected to come up with most of the ideas) isn’t a bad idea in itself. But always try to avoid copying an idea so that it has no originality.
With a luxury service comes an expectation of personalisation. So, luxury wedding photographers have to make this work throughout their images in order to keep their clientele happy. Although this isn’t really as hard as it sounds. On first impressions it sounds like a really tall order, being as wedding photography is, well, wedding photography, right? Ha! Wrong...
How different can they really be? Well, you’d be surprised, it’s easier to find their individuality than you may first think, but don’t worry the proof will be in the pudding, or so-called photographs as they say. The Bride’s dress, the wedding rings, centrepieces, décor, venue and guests make the day what is both on and off screen. So, always focus your attention on these specifics and your images will naturally separate themselves from each other. As we all know though, high fashion wedding photography is mostly cantered around people and the Bride is usually at the forefront of most if not all of the images in this style of photography.
High Fashion Wedding Photography (Earnings) - High fashion wedding photography is often demanded by clientele with a larger budget to spend, as opposed to those on a smaller budget. Not to sound like a cliché, but it takes money to make money and, in this case, high-end/ luxury wedding photographers have usually been in the business for some time and have become really good at what they do. We’re sure they’ve spent a fair amount of money on equipment and courses to really master their craft, but most of all, it’ll be their experience and creativity that they have on their side.
On average, the annual income of a high-end fashion photographer is $59,000. However, this does fluctuate a little from year to year. So, if you’re thinking of going into the field or want to know how to get there, this may be a little motivator to keep you going. Like everything else, there will be challenges along the way, but if this is what you see yourself doing then go for it!
