I specialise in unposed, documentary-style photographs which tell the story of your day (only around 5% of my photographs tend to be those standard, formal shots that some request). I am there to capture the finite moments, as they happen – those moments which make up the monumentous occasion that is your wedding day.
Take a look through my portfolio to give you an idea of my photographic style and how I observe moments. Whether you want to call it documentary wedding photography, reportage wedding photography or wedding photojournalism, it all amounts to the same thing: no faked fun, no staged moments and no camera trickery. Just your story told with honesty, compassion, humour and beauty.
Weddings these days don’t have to be formal and stuffy, and neither does the photography. The photographs are the only thing which become more important and hold more significance over the years. To say that the dress/shoes/flowers/venue/band will all be forgotten over time is a hackneyed phrase, and yet it’s true. Your memories become more precious, and your photographs will become the only way to revisit your day, and for little people who have not even been born yet to witness that day themselves, 10, 20, 30 years from now. Documentary wedding photography ensures a fluidity to the day and a genuine narrative to your wedding photographs.
It’s very important to me that the photography doesn’t interfere with the couples enjoyment of their wedding; I aim to be completely unobtrusive and yet get utterly immersed in the day – it is the greatest compliment when couples tell me they are amazed at the moments I managed to capture as they didn’t even realise I had been there.
