There are many terms used to describe my style of natural wedding photography, so it can be a little confusing when researching into the different types and styles of wedding photographers for your day. My discreet approach to a more authentic and honest style as a wedding photographer is often created using natural and available light only and is most commonly described as “reportage” or “documentary” wedding photography. In essence, these terms describe the same fundamental, candid style of wedding photography - one that doesn’t dictate or direct but simply observes and discreetly captures genuine, un-staged and spontaneous moments as they unfold, naturally. Other than your couple portraits and pre-planned traditional family group photo, I typically spend 95% of the wedding day photographing real and meaningful moments between family and friends. Weddings are full of these beautiful and often fleeting moments - elements that depict the true essence of a wedding day. A skilled natural-style wedding photographer is one that you shouldn’t notice too much and yet has the competence to spend the entire day in the thick of the action photographing uninhibited interactions between family and friends. Importantly, a photographer should have no impact on the atmosphere or flow of the day itself.
