Wedding in reportage style

Before planning an urban style reportage, it is essential to know what a reportage style wedding is. The reportage style is identified as a way of taking photos more spontaneous, fresh and contemporary in which you create a story between the protagonists and the context in which they are, inserting as a frame the naturalness and unpredictability. The shots in reportage style as well as telling a story, be it related to the wedding or the city, are taken with naturalness and without too many technicalities.
