So what exactly is…

A Creative Documentary Style Photographer?

 

Documentary Wedding Photography

 

My photography style is a mix of completely natural documentary photography throughout the day with some creative but natural couple portraits and fun, relaxed group shots.

Quite simply, for me documentary photography for me is about telling a story. The story of your most special day from start to finish, with no awkward posing or being intrusive, just real moments from the day. People say that you will never know the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory and I truly believe that I help to preserve those memories by capturing each moment as it happens. Real moments, become real memories.

Wedding photography is much more than just taking photographs. It’s about observing the surroundings, anticipating whats going to happen and reacting quickly to capture that perfect moment.

The Creative Part…

Creative Portraits – When it comes to photographs of you both together, I take just a very brief period away from the rest of the the guests for some relaxed portraits alone. I use this time to capture some creative shots of you both together. My approach is still very natural and relaxed, often a short walk in the grounds of your venue is enough.

Many of my couples tell me that they feel uncomfortable in front of the camera and hate having any photographs taken. After the wedding the portraits are some of there favourite photographs from the day.
