Lifestyle Photography is a style of portrait/people photography, which aims to capture and document real-life events, situations, or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The art of Lifestyle photography is to manipulate a scene into a still image without making it obvious that the photograph has been controlled but rather look like it was a real event photographed really well. It has to look natural. Depending on what the purpose of the image is the look and feel of it will change accordingly.
A story telling image engages us by connecting with our hearts, emotions and minds. It creates a perception of a certain lifestyle or moment which is desirable to the viewer.
In the case of this example the story told should be inviting enough for the viewer to would want the same experience for their wedding day or for the moment the big question is being asked.
