Having photographed over 150+ weddings, I’ve had my fair share of experience in terms of creating beautiful images. Photographically, I like to place myself in and amongst the action, making sure that I don’t miss a moment and capture it from a point-of-view angle. I’ve learnt to do this subtly by letting the events unfold as they would naturally and waiting for the perfect moment, leaving you with timeless memories.
At certain parts of the day, I always think that it is important to whisk you away from the crowds and allow you to spend some uninterrupted quality time together as the new husband and wife. This gives me an opportunity to get creative with light, composition and atmosphere to create truly stunning images that will be remembered for a lifetime.
Everyone says they’re a ‘documentary wedding photographer’ now who shoots ‘natural portraits’ and will be invisible on the day. And everyone has a different way of going about it. Yes you can hide in the shadows or circle the reception like a vulture but I’ve found that the best way is to be invisible in plain sight.
Fujifilm have literally changed the way I shoot, for the better. The size, sound and sensors in these cameras are phenomenal. I dress to impress, become one of the crowd, and people genuinely think that I’m a guest. It’s from this angle that I love to capture weddings. Not only do I blend in, but throughout the day I mingle and chat to people which gains trust and appreciation for the work that I’m doing.
Once trust is built, it’s from this very small and special place that I can capture how the day really felt.
And yes I will stay and party!
I want to hear from you! What have you got planned for your wedding?
