Wedding Day Portraits
How I Approach Taking Portraits On a Wedding Day
Here's the thing, I love them. I spent the last 5-years perfecting portraits, always trying hard to create something unique for my clients. I love the large landscape small couple thing and flash too to create something different from the natural eye and the scene. However, in the last couple of years, I have focussed more on developing my documentary style, focusing on quirky compositions and seeking out all the natural happenings and the day. I love the buzz this give me, Its like a bit of a drug. There is always amazingness on a wedding day. This is a given, so I try to look beyond that and create more dynamic imagery.
Portraits do not have to look staged. If you notice one thing from my work, I never ask my couples to look at the camera. That for me, is a no-no. I want my couples to feel relaxed. As I mentioned, focusing on my documentary photography has affected my work. I see portraits a little differently now, don't get me wrong I still love to do some epic style shots; however, a couples portrait can be so much more, and a fabulous picture can be something that is just happening at that moment. I always love the images caught in between the happenings! They are magical and real. So if you are a couple who hate to think of yourselves having portrait, thing again, It doesn't have to be staged, it doesn't have to look posed. It can be the two of you been you and moments that happen in-between. So if you like relaxed, alternative fun and vibrant wedding photography, get in touch.
