Capturing Authentic Moments: The Art of Documentary Wedding Photography
When it comes to wedding photography, I’ve got a special thing for the documentary style. It’s like unveiling the unfiltered magic of your special day while letting you be your awesome selves, no spotlight stress required. Another reason (which is a little secret of mine) is that I am not one to be centre of attention, so any excuse to blend into the background and capture everything and I’ll take it!
What’s the deal with Documentary Wedding Photography?
Imagine this: no stiff poses, no forced, cheesy smiles—just genuine moments as they naturally unfold. Moments you may miss during your day. In the many weddings I’ve captured, the number one things I’ve noticed is just how little time the couple actually get to themselves or to take in what is happening around them. In the documentary style, I step back and become your visual storyteller, quietly observing and capturing those candid emotions you may miss, the reactions of family and friends, and interactions that make your wedding uniquely beautiful.
The Candid and Unposed Nature of Documentary Photography
Let’s talk candid shots, shall we? Think of it as your wedding’s candid ‘highlight reel,’ but with an authenticity that can’t be staged. I don’t direct moments; I preserve them as they happen. For our couple portraits I like to take you on a walk. The perfect time to get away is just before your wedding breakfast. Your wedding day is about you two celebrating your love for each other, surrounded by your nearest and dearest. It’s not about me dictating or telling you how to pose or act.
Whether it’s the bride’s last-minute jitters, the groom’s heartfelt vows, or the infectious laughter of the speeches, it’s all about real, unscripted, and heartwarming moments.
Why opt for the Documentary Style?
If you desire a wedding collection that’s a genuine reflection of your day and allows you to be your authentic selves, the documentary style is the way to go. It’s about reliving your wedding as it unfolded, complete with every unique moment captured.
