Yes I do allow your guests to have their moment and take their own pictures! It allows me to captures these funny moments! Don’t worry though, I do understand some nice formal photos are also important to capture, and I always dedicate 5-10min to gather your families together for a few snaps.
DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS: AN INSIGHT INTO MY APPROACH AND STYLE
What you should know about my documentary style, and how I differ from other photographers.
Documentary Wedding Photography in simple terms is an accurate representation of people, places, objects and events, and is often described as reportage photography.
A Documentary wedding photographer will be able to document the whole story of your day, though candid, un-posed images. This allows you (the couple) to spend all your time with your family and guests, without the unnecessary hours spent posing or direction from the photographer. Besides, it’s YOUR WEDDING DAY, and not the photographers, so enjoy it, let your hair down, knowing that all the key moments are being captured in the background.
My photography style will record genuine moments throughout the wedding day. If your idea of ‘wedding hell’ is a bossy photographer and huge amounts of staged, boring group photos, then documentary might be the thing for you!
My style will ensure your photos tell an honest, unscripted story of your wedding day, not a series of poses, snapshots, and formal group photos.
It's about capturing moments creatively through composition and skillful timing, without the need to orchestrate the scene.
I believe wedding photos should be photographed within context, conveying the true story, feeling, and atmosphere in pictures. I want your wedding photos to bring back the feelings, emotions, the smiles, and the energy you’ll have experienced on your wedding day. and not moments the photographer made us rugby tackle each other, or go on endless walks.
Let’s face it, there are so many wedding photography websites to go through, hundred of magazines and so many styles of wedding photography to choose from.
If you have landed on this page then I am assuming you are interested to find a photographer who can capture your day in a relaxed approach, and deliver natural looking photos of yourselves and your guests.
