The photography world is just packed to the brim with terms that describe and define styles of wedding photography. With categories such as Reportage, Photojournalism, Fine Art, Editorial, Creative and so many more, it can feel a tad confusing when you start looking for your wedding photographer.
Nope…I’m not going to define them all! I just don’t think it’s necessary to understand their definitions (and yes…there are photographers everywhere shouting at their screen right now!)
For me, seeing an image and a style that connects with you on an emotional level is so much more important than understanding what category of photography it falls into.
And the reality is, that many photographers don’t fall into one specific category. Instead they mix a few in to their own unique artistic blend.
However, one thing remains constant. A wedding photographer is there for one purpose…and that is to tell a story. Your story. Using their own style to do so.
Most of the images I show on my website and social media are images with a specific style. They have a light, elegant, airy feel that capture the beauty of a moment in an artistic way. However, in order to tell the ‘story’ of the day, we also need to capture moments as they happen in a much more candid way (‘Reportage,’ for those who like definitions!)
These are the images that literally capture a moment in time; freezing it and within it the story of our human connection. They are authentic, raw, emotive and timeless.
So today I wanted to share just a glimpse of the other side of my work.
Although you might adore the style of images on a photographer’s website and social media, always make sure that you see an entire wedding (and not just a gallery highlights) BEFORE you book them! This will give you a much clearer idea of their level of expertise and professional approach.
