If you're looking for a wedding photographer to document your special day with beautiful, emotive photos, I'd love to hear from you! My style is natural, candid and relaxed - perfect for couples who want to remember their wedding day exactly as it happened. I believe in capturing unobtrusive moments reflecting the day's real emotions.

How I work as a documentary wedding photographer

I work with my couples to understand their vision for the day and create stunning photos that will last a lifetime. I can capture all of the moments, big and small, from your preparations to the speeches, cake cutting and dancing afterwards.

My approach is to blend into the background while capturing intimate moments between you and your guests. I like to be creative, using natural light and shooting in a way true to the day. As a documentary wedding photographer, I follow and record the wedding day from the background allowing couples to be as stress-free as possible instead of posing for stiff photos.

It's not my habit to ask many questions or boss you around. It's best to let genuine emotions be freely expressed without interruption! I simply turn up with my camera, ready for whatever comes naturally.

The idea of documentary wedding photography

Documentary wedding photography is becoming a popular trend, and for a good reason. Documentary photographers capture your special day as it happens, creating authentic images that tell the true story of your wedding in its raw beauty.

Documentary wedding photography will provide you with beautiful images that truly document life's important moments. Forget awkward poses and forced smiles – this approach allows you to portray your celebration's genuine emotions, memories and details just as they unfolded.

Benefits of having a documentary wedding photographer

When it comes to wedding photography, you have a variety of options. One choice is the traditional posed wedding photos with a formal approach. But if you wish for a more relaxed day, go for wedding photography that blends seamlessly into the day.

This type of wedding photography provides a more natural feel to the wedding album, and the wedding photographer can get creative with angles and lighting to produce unique shots that perfectly capture your wedding day.
