A wedding day is full of emotion; happiness, excitement, trepidation, laughter, enjoyment, the odd tear and most importantly FUN. Its my job to capture these emotions in their purest, least contrived form. And thats what I do. I love a beautiful portrait, understand the value of some family group shots, but where I’m really in my element is just capturing the day as I see it.
There are certain buzz words that people use for this style of photography; documentary, reportage, candid, etc, but the reality is much simpler. Wedding photography has moved on so much in the past 10 years or so that nearly everyone expects this approach from their wedding photographer. Theres a lot more to creating a good candid photograph of someone than just taking a photo of someone when they’re not looking. You need to capture a sense of story and emotion.
