CANDID WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Candid wedding photography allows your day to flow and gives me permission to run around and capture the genuine moments – in all their unapologetic glory! This is the one morning where you’re going to wake up with your nerves shreded, drink champagne for breakfast and a couple of hours later be transformed into a pair of BobbyDazzlers. You’ve just got married, there’s tears, laughter, the kids are manic, there’s more than one social hand grenade at the party and your Best (wo)man is luck to be alive. The last thing I want to do at this stage is line you all up and inflict the word ‘cheese’
How I work
So you’re shy, you hate having your photographs taken – so do I! That’s why I prefer natural and candid wedding photography rather than the stiff, formal and overly staged.
Everybody is a little awkard and self conscious to begin with. But I move around a lot, I give you space, I ask you to look at each other and not the camera and I try and keep the formal photographs to as short a period of time as possible and have fun whilst doing them.
It’s not all about about the boisterous and the belly laughs either so I want you to feel at ease with me through the quiet moments too. I would consider myself an extroverted introvert with my fair share of social awkwardness…this works in your favour!
I like being around people but I don’t always have to talk and I’m definitely not a shouty photographer. A lot of the time i’m preoccupied with and looking over your shoulder for a parallel line, shade or shard of light. I also love architecture, landscapes, moody weather and want to incorporate your chosen venue into your images so sometimes I’m just too far away to worry about.
