One of the regular questions I get asked is if I take the “family” shots. Yes, I love documentary photography, and no, I’m not a big fan of overly posed images…….but I’m a big fan of balance. So, while I take some shots of the fun during the preparations, I don’t forget the shoes & the dress, and whereas I prefer to direct rather than pose couples, I still try to get some “timeless” bride and groom images, and yes, I do get the all important “family” shots, but I don’t drag out the whole affair till everyone has a pain in their face ! As I said, it’s all about balance, and delivering a selection of images to each couple which represents an accurate reflection of their big day both posed & unposed.
Check out the attached slideshow with a selection of images, some documentary and some (slightly) posed.
