An overused phrase, but an underappreciated art.
When I shoot a wedding, apart from the traditional “must have” shots, along with some timeless couple photos I love to include as many candid or documentary shots as possible. These photos capture the little moments, the unexpected laughs, the tender interactions and tell a different side of your days story.
I tend to keep these photos black and white, no distracting colours, just a classic image telling a story or, as they say, capturing a moment.
The key to a lot of these images is to try be in the right place, at the right time, so whereas they might not be technically perfect they provide exactly what you are looking for.
To consider documentary / candid images as supplementary to the “main” images is incorrect in my opinion. I actually feel that they are complimentary and help build up a true reflection and storyline of your big day.
