Q: I love the look of candid wedding shots, but all of my married friends have traditional, posed wedding pictures. How do I choose?
A: Try mixing posed and candid shots to round out your wedding album. If you adore candids, hire someone who specializes in a photojournalistic style, with real talent for capturing emotional, spontaneous moments. Then simply tell your photographer which posed shots you'd also like. Many photographers can shoot in either style. Determine your priorities and choose a professional accordingly.
