Documentary Wedding Photography

Capture the moment is an often overused photography expression, but it describes documentary/reportage photography perfectly. These are fleeting moments, missed by many but, thanks to photography now captured forever. The day goes by so fast for each couple, it’s nice to be able to look back on those little interactions, laughs, tears & hugs that they missed or went so quickly they had forgotten about.

My style on the day is to try keep everything as documentary as possible, whereas I still get all those “must have” shots and am more than happy to try get specific shots wanted by each couple, I prefer a fly on the wall approach and capturing the day as it unfolds.

I also prefer most of my documentary shots to be in Black & White – the viewer is not distracted by colours and the focus is on the moment. Colour versions are always available if required !!
