Documentary wedding photography
Real documentary wedding photography.
A wedding is just a massive party, yeah there's the ceremony that rudely interrupts the drinking, but essentially the majority are just a big party!
I recently fell into trap of being a photography sheep, seeing what other photographers are doing and trying to copy them to become accepted. Balls to that! Plus I wasn't as good as the others in setting up forced, fake shots.
What I am good at is mixing it up with the my couples and their guests during the day. Chatting away and getting snap shots of natural moments using the available lights and shadows, predicting and anticipating the next shot. Everything I do from now is natural, nothing posed or forced. If you're wanting fake and forced your in the wrong place unfortunately.
