Documentary wedding photography for me, boils down to the attempt to capture moments. Anticipating the moment is essential, and then having the patience to wait for it to reach it’s height, then a click of the shutter. Quite often it’ll be click, click click!
It is important to have a photographer who has the skills and experience to be able to capture the moments on your wedding day, because there is no going back. I always enjoy meeting up with clients for a no obligation chat, to see if we gel and to show them more of my portfolio. This time spent before the wedding also helps to put you at ease on the big day itself; knowing that you can trust your photographer is one less thing to have on your mind, allowing you to enjoy the moments as they are happening.
The moments below are a few of my favourites from a recent wedding in St Agnes. I just love the expressions on the brides face and the feeling of joy at this wedding. These are all taken in a 5 minute period of time, imagine how many you would have once I’d been at your wedding for 10 hours plus!!
