Natural Wedding Photography

My approach and style

Candid wedding photography

My photography style can be described natural, fun, and honest. I believe a documentary wedding photographer should capture the day as it was, and allowing for your wedding day to flow natural and undisturbed. 

 The style can also be described as documentary photography, however, they both describe the same core value – an unobtrusive approach to wedding photography. 

You’ll see from looking around my portfolio that my approach to weddings is very “hands-off”. I won’t stop or disturb any of the proceedings, set up or fake shots, tell people where to stand, or pose you for the camera.

Natural candid wedding photos

Professional wedding photographers have the ability to remain discreet during the day, but also give you guidance when needed. This allows them to create very candid wedding photos, but also find time for those all important family group photos. With this in mind it’s important to do your research, have a skim through my blog, it is full of wedding galleries, advice, in-depth review and more…

For me, an image absolutely has to have context and tell a story to the viewer. Rather than showing a series of snap shots, every image is carefully composed to describe a certain moment, feeling or story within the scene. Other than the odd, posed family group photos, I typically spend the rest of the day capturing real authentic moments of your family and friends. I closely observe the day by fitting in with your guests and capturing beautiful moments. 

A pure natural wedding photographer is someone who can remain unnoticed during the day, allow the photographer to get up and close to the moments, resulting in more intimate wedding photos. It’s important that I am always watching and anticipating moments, making sure I am always in the thick of the action, and ready to sprint across the field to capture that shot! A photographer should have no impact in the flow of the day itself.
