The Best Long Island Wedding Photographers

best wedding photographers on long islandAre you familiar with the term “photojournalism”? It’s a departure from traditional wedding photography, which consists of posed, formal shots and portraits. Photojournalistic wedding images are taken spontaneously, capturing candid moments throughout the day, all of which end up telling the story of your wedding in a unique way.

But you don’t have to forgo posed photos of the family if you want to use a photojournalistic approach — ask your photographer to mix it up — and remember that once back at the studio, many photographers can add special effects to traditional images, as well.

Just starting your search for a quality photographer? Then take a look below for our wedding planners’ favorites. But if you have an opinion about any of these or your own, leave a comment to help other brides.
