This is a small portfolio of my reportage wedding photography. Images that are favourites of mine but also a selection that I think reflects the uncontrived style of my wedding photography. My approach as an eyewitness with a camera, rather than an orchestrator of contrived traditional setup moments. Recording the day not imposing upon it.
This is how I shoot.
This is my reportage wedding photography ‘eye’.
This is my approach as I capture a wedding day. A style that reflects my training and my experience in photojournalism. My love of that particular genre of photography. The reportage ‘eye’. That is what makes individual photographers unique.
We all have the same equipment, we charge similar rates, give or take, but it is our sense of composition, timing and our experience that sets us apart from each other. How we see what is happening around us, combined with our technical skill to capture it. A style not reliant upon Photoshop gimmicks or ephemeral styles of processing. Documenting a wedding day in a natural way. Letting the day unfold, allowing the couple and guests to enjoy this unique day, as the camera captures this, without unnecessary interference.
Choosing a wedding photographer isn’t easy – there are more than plenty to chose from. But regardless of their awards, the organizations they belong to, even what they charge. The real value is in how they capture a wedding day. How they see it? How they can freeze it in time. Our ‘eye’!
