Wedding Photography Cork | Wedding preparations are one of the most stressful, yet beautiful times of anyone’s life. You are in the constant whirl of phone calls, planning and decision making. It’s like having two jobs.
It doesn’t help when you face a jargon which isn’t familiar and makes you too intimidated to ask.
This is why we decided to prepare this short series. Discover part 1 of this blog post here [link].
So here’s another bunch of words or phrases that may trip you up:
#1 What are high key photographs?
No, it isn’t connected with your photographer asking you for weird poses at heights. High key photography is the style of wedding photography where all the colours are bleached out and light colours appear very white - all due to the use of very bright lighting. It blurs out the unwanted shadows in the pictures. Wedding Photography Cork
#2 High or low resolution of your wedding pictures
The higher the resolution of your wedding pictures, the better, and you are after what’s best, aren’t you?
High resolution pictures let you admire all your favourite photographs in larger formats, since thanks to it, you can print them as e.g. posters or works of art. Always demand the best quality possible.
#3 What is soft light photography
If you are after magical, soft-looking pictures, this kind of photography is for you.
It enables your wedding photographer to create a soft diffusion, which gives out the light transition effect. It can be created artificially by special lighting or naturally with some help from the clouds, for example.
This style works perfectly in portrait shoots.

#4 What is the golden hour?
Every time you come across golden coloured pictures, with amazing dark, almost black shadows, it is thanks to this wonderful phenomenon. The golden hour, also called ‘magic hour’ is the time right before sunset or right after sunrise.
This is the time when the sun gives out the perfect amount of light. It works almost as a ‘natural photoshop’ since faces photograph beautifully in this lighting. Wedding Photography Cork
#5 What is MOTB and FOTB?
Last but not least, we cannot forget about funny, yet quite often used abbreviations which aren’t technically connected with photography, but may pop up.
MOTB means Mother of the Bride and FOTB translates into the Father of the Bride. In case you were wondering.
