What do you call this style of Photography?

Looking for a photographer that does this style of photography, is there a name for it?

Not really a style. The first looks like it has a little cross-processing but there isn't a dominate post processing as far as I can tell.

I believe it's called "color photography."

I'm getting married in Italy this summer and looking for a photographer with Fine art creative wedding photojournalism style. One that gives the photos a dreamy/storyline feel.

the first picture is over exposed, or blown out. otherwise several others have very narrow focus - selective focus.

Not being a d!ck, but that photography is terrible. Photo after photo of unflattering images with a bunch of BS fake tilt shift filters. Most brides would go ape sh!t if they got photos showing off their arm fat, their pores, etc etc etc.

As for the style, it is called journalistic (where you shoot the event as it happens without any "look over here and smile.") This is a particularly poor example of it thought. Look up David Jay wedding photographer. He is the pinnacle of what you are looking for.

Definitely not my style. There is something weird about the exposure on most of them. Some of the compositions are interesting, but the colors and exposure suuuck in my opinion.

At least one person got it right. Selective Focus.

The overexposed look is actually a style/type of shot (called high key.)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-key_lighting

Here's an example of a high key shot


However, just like fisheye lenses, crazy depth of field, etc, they have a time and a place.

Second picture is a nicely done tilt-shift, or fake tilt shift.

Tilt shifts are used to straighten lines, not to shoot weddings.
