Reportage style vs. traditional: the differences in shooting a wedding video

One of main differences between a reportage style and a traditional shooting style for wedding videos it lies in the approach to the wedding day. A traditional shooting style focuses on moments “key” of the day, such as cake cutting or the first dance, and often requires couples to make prepared poses for the camera.
