The Victorians really ushered in the era of wedding photography. Back then having your picture taken was a really important event. As you can see the images appeared very set and formal – to a point wooden.
Over recent years photography technology has taken photography to a new level. Multiple images can be taken quickly and enhanced back in the studio using the latest post production software. What hasn’t changed is the function of the photographer which is to make people relaxed in front of the camera.
One of the concerns that brides have is that the photographer will take them away from the wedding and spend hours photographing them. This is how some photographers operate but we do not. We want to let your day to be special and to interrupt it as little as possible whilst still capturing all the images you want.
Weddings these days are rarely a grand formal affair. Instead the day is a celebration and party.
Wedding photography is about capturing the feeling and emotion of your big day. My clients tend not to want their day interrupted and stage managed. They want the pictures to be realistic with everyone feeling and looking comfortable – and smiling!
Shepherding people against church doors and forcing stiff poses is a thing of the past. These days the best images are those where the happy couple and guests are having fun.
