Wedding Photography on the iPhone

June 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Well, it was only a matter of time, there are numerous Professional Photographers who have actually shot whole weddings on an iPhone! 

There are articles all over the internet about wedding photography being done with an iPhone. 

So the question is, can it you take credible photographs with an item that the majority of the population own and carry them around with them all day? Of course you can. As photographer Chase Jarvis said, the best camera is the one you have with you. 

There are some limitations however.

  1. The dynamic range (range of colours and shades of light) captured will not  be as good as a professional mirrorless or DSLR camera.
  2. Files are a lot smaller so you will be limited to the size you can print your wedding images.
  3. Noise/Grain in pictures taken in low light  will be a lot worse.
  4. Control of shutter speed and aperture is very limited.
  5. I could go on, but you would get bored.........

Ok, so there are some down sides to using an iPhone, but, as explained by my hero and top wedding photographer Jerry Ghionis in his blog here, after photographing a wedding on the iPhone, it is all about the craft of lighting, posing, composition and story telling that makes the difference, as opposed to the camera you use. 

Would I recommend that people start having their wedding photographed on an iPhone? Strictly speaking, no, but the difference between Uncle Bob photographing a wedding with his expensive camera and a professional photographer with an iPhone would be vast. I would go with the iPhone in the hands of a professional photographer every time.
