Documentary Wedding Photography – Naturally Beautiful, Timeless and Genuine

So what is documentary wedding photography? In a nutshell, documentary wedding photography is telling the story of your wedding in beautifully composed and perfectly timed images. Genuine images of things that happened rather than fake moments made up by your photographer. It means you get to enjoy your day, your way without your photographer being in the way, in fact, most of my couples don’t even notice me.

Documentary photography isn’t just about recording great moments though. For me, it has to be so much more. Great moments are very important you need the first kiss for example, but on their own moments are just snaps. With strong composition, great timing and technical perfection those moments are transformed from just snaps into stunning images that take you right back. In short, your photographs will tell the stories of your day and take you right back to the very essence of your wedding day and that’s a powerful thing. 

My pictures have are described as many things, contemporary, classic, timeless, stunning and beautiful.

Documentary wedding photography is also known as reportage, photojournalistic and candid photography. It’s the best way to get amazing wedding pictures without having to spend hours posing, in fact, you don’t need to give your wedding photography a second thought –  just leave it to me.

The Wedding Industry Awards – Official Judge

I’m proud to be associated with TWIA (The Wedding Industry Awards) as part of the judging team for the past four consecutive years.

Along with winning this years North West Wedding Photographer of the Year for the second year running at the English Wedding Awards (2016 and 2017); I have been a finalist and nominee in several other wedding photography awards.

These awards and industry recognition are great to receive. However, what matters most to me it what my couples think. The fact I see so many of them again and again because they’ve recommended me to their friends is the biggest endorsement of my service I could wish for.
