Ever wondered what a documentary style photographer does?
Documentary wedding photography is often referred to as professional photojournalism or reportage style.
It is a truthful, objective and sometimes candid way of capturing an event.
It’s looking at the photos as a way of telling the story of your day, rather than posing people for a false version.
As a child, dad would make us stand in a family row squinting at the sun while he messed about with his camera for what seemed like an eternity all the time telling us to smile. I hated it, and I hated the photos. This is where my passion for documentary came in – no fake smiles, no posed and uncomfortable looks. Just genuine moments that last a lifetime.
