Documentary or reportage photography is a particular style of photographing wedding where we work in a natural way – there is no forced posing or setting up photos,.
We focus on capturing the natural reactions of your guests and the day itself without staging aspects or stopping you from enjoying yourself for endless group portraits.
Natural Wedding Emotions
We want you to look back at your wedding photographs and remember what you were feeling rather than staging things.
We love all those emotional moments – when your dad sees you in your dress. The laughter during the vows. Your guests hugging you after the ceremony. The little way your new husband brushes the hair from your eyes.
These are the images we love to capture.
Formal Wedding Portraits
We of course understand that throughout the day you will probably want some posed group portraits for the family.
We aim to make these as relaxed and natural as possible, doing them quickly and efficiently in order to make sure you can have time with your guests too!
Intimate Wedding Portraits
In terms of the portraits of the both of you we completely understand how important these are and also the anxiety you might feel about being the centre of attention and making sure you look good.
Please don’t worry – these photographs are done in a relaxed way, we have a wander around the hotel grounds and don’t make you stand in certain ways that would make you feel uncomfortable.
The documentary wedding photography style is to capture the natural emotions shared between you both, the laughter, the silly moments – all the things you want to remember as the years go by.
Many of our reviews say that the couple didn’t realise we were there on their wedding day.
The documentary wedding photography style means that we stand back and observe and capture without intruding on your special moments.
This will give you the wedding photography you love in the Lake District and Sheffield.
