Documentary Wedding Photographer

My style of documentary wedding photography ensures my images will tell the story of your wedding in the way it actually was, and not in the way the photographer told you to look, pose or smile. Weddings don’t have to be formal or conventional, and neither does photography!

Your wedding photos are bigger than just images, and they become even more important with time. Over the years, the dress, shoes, flowers or venue will all be forgotten. Now imagine yourself in 10, 20, 30 years from now, returning to your photos and every single time being able to turn time back again and relive those moments with the little people who have not even been born yet!

It is imperative to me that my photography style doesn’t get in the way of the emotions and energy of your wedding day; the less obtrusive I get, the more natural and candid the story of your day is. Too much formal photography breaks the flow of the day, I want you to enjoy your day fully knowing every precious moment is being captured.

Every photographer you reach to will have a different approach to the way they want to capture your special day. So let me tell you mine:

I don’t interrupt the flow of the day, which means I won’t boss you around, or any of your guests. I use discrete cameras that allow me to be close to the action, blending into the environment, always ready and looking for that perfect moment, punchline or unexpected show of affection.

I use natural light and personally edit every single photo to make them look like film images, not like the over-processed pictures you see very often these days.

However, I believe a documentary wedding photographer can include group, family and couple portraits, as long as they feel like part of the whole wedding story. The details still count, and I’ll include the dress, the rings and flowers within the context of the story.

Memories should be about your day with your friends and family and not with your photographer, because of this, I’ll limit the time I’ll take for your portraits to 15-25 minutes. This could be during cocktail hour or before the first dance. If that is something you’ll like to do.
