WHAT IS DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
My images are unposed and non-directed. Blending into the background and quietly providing photographs that tell the story of the day.
Documentary wedding photography (also known as reportage) is not just about the images delivered, it is about how they are obtained. My laid back approach and interaction on the wedding day is the key to ensuring your moments are captured in an unobtrusive way.
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT?
Many “documentary” wedding photographers actually stage lots of their images. Asking a bride to move near a window or put on the earnings again. I stage nothing. I believe photographs of your day should be moments that happen naturally. You live in the moment.
I’m a multi award winning member of the Wedding and Photojournalistic Association, an elite group of photographers that capture weddings in a true documentary way, and uphold the strict guidelines of the membership.
DO YOU TAKE POSED IMAGES?
When required, I of course take beautiful couple shots and quick and painless group photos, taking 15-20 minutes of your day. Every wedding is different, we meet to discuss how you would like the day to flow. Contact me to see a complete wedding, including relaxed portraits and group shots.
HAVE YOU SHOT AT OUR VENUE?
As I extensively travel capturing weddings, I’ve often never photographed or visited venues before. I have shot weddings at Churches, mansions, castles, stately homes, back gardens and more. I photograph people, capture emotion and tell the story of your day – the location of your reception or ceremony will not affect my ability to capture your memories.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
All over the world! I’ve been lucky enough to shoot destination weddings, but equally love travelling around the UK. Married in Italy myself, I love to travel – especially with my street photography.
CAN I PRINT IMAGES FROM MY USB
You have full reproduction authorisation for all the images on the USB – printing them for yourself, friends and family at your convenience. I strongly recommend to research which printing company you use. Cheap printing will make your images lose their quality! All photographs can also be ordered via my online gallery for professional printing
WE LOVE YOUR PICS, HOW DO WE BOOK?
Contact me, I’ll check my diary, and if I’m available for your big day we can arrange to have a chat at my office or via skype. I always send a link to a complete gallery to view, it is the only way to see they type of images to expect from your photographer. A £400 deposit and completed booking form is required to secure your wedding date.
