When deciding on a wedding photographer, it can be important to determine what you want. There are different types of photography – some like the posed or staged shots – say the bride and groom standing in front of the church looking directly into the camera – while others prefer editorial or photojournalistic style photography. Editorial photos are generally taken from the background; they are taken to tell a story, to capture moments of raw emotion. While this doesn’t mean you can’t have your picture taken in front of your favorite view of the Milwaukee downtown skyline, you ultimately want to hire a photographer based on their skills that will give you the end result you are looking for in your wedding photos.
To get some insight, we sat down with Kim from KB Image Photography who has a passion for photojournalistic style photography. But Kim didn’t just talk about her skills, she provided us photos from an awesome Milwaukee winter wedding AND connected us with the bride so we could hear directly from one of her couples. Check out these photos below from Jeannette and Josh’s wedding day, captured by KB Images, with some input below from the bride. As you scroll through these images, it’s easy to see the story of their wedding unfold right before your eyes.
According to the bride Jeannette, photography was one of the most important wedding vendors they chose. And why wouldn’t it be, these images capture your wedding day for the rest of your life! Per Jeannette: “Our whole experience with Kim was very enjoyable, and on the day of the wedding, we hardly knew she was there! She was able to capture candid, beautiful moments at the ceremony and reception without ever disrupting us or the guests. I am so grateful for the fact that she didn’t have to stage shots unless we asked her to.” This is exactly what photojournalistic photography style is all about.

One final detail I just have to share about this wedding is Jeannette’s dress. Isn’t it gorgeous! This dress was actually sewn by Jeannette’s grandmother for Jeannette’s mother for her wedding. How cool is that!!! Some dress styles really are timeless. Check out a picture of Tom and Pat Packee below who have been happily married for 46 years. So cool to incorporate a piece of family history into your day. Thanks to Kim from KB Image Photography for sharing these photos, and Jeannette and Josh for sharing the details of their day.
