Choosing a Wedding photographer can be an overwhelming task. There are so many talented photographers to choose from and where do you even start? Simple. You may want to consider what style/approach to photography you prefer. If you were to ask me, I would suggest Documentary Wedding photography, which is also known as Reportage or Photojournalism. Here’s 10 reasons why Documentary Wedding photography could be for you.
1 | Take me back
Re-live the emotions you felt during that special moment. The first look, the embrace, when the knot has been tied etc.
2 | Moments you missed
It is impossible for the bride and groom to take note of everyone and everything while they are in between rituals. So it is our job to capture the little moments that they didn’t see on that day itself.
3 | Camera shy
If you feel self conscious or awkward when asked to pose on the spot, repeat an action or look at the camera for a hundredth time, then this is your life saver. Great moments will be captured and you wouldn’t even know it.
4 | Raw emotions
Capturing raw emotions on photographs is a huge task but rewarding. Sometimes you blink and that special moment is gone. You can’t stage raw emotions nor can it be recreated.
5 | Blending in
Forget the instructions of what and how you should be or shouldn’t be performing your rituals on your wedding day. Documentary wedding photography doesn’t obstruct you or the rituals just to take a perfect shot. We blend in and make it happen ninja style.
6 | Looking their best
Ever notice people tend to check and adjust themselves whenever it’s time to take a photo? When people become self conscious, they tend to appear stiff/awkward and would at least require 2-3 shots before everyone is satisfied with how they look. However, Documentary photography captures people naturally, bringing out the best and that’s the real beauty.
7 | Unique like you
No one wants their Wedding photographs to look like everyone else’s. Your wedding photos should be about you and your wedding, moments that are truly unique as they haven’t happened before.
8 | Relax and enjoy
It’s after all your wedding day. So, just be yourself and enjoy every moment of your special day, knowing well that your photographer is capturing it all.
9 | Capture the humour
Just like raw emotions, moments of of humour can’t be staged as they are very much spontaneous. It would be an absolute joy to revisit those moments when you look through your wedding photographs.
10 | Best of both worlds
You can have your wedding day captured in wedding documentary style, keeping in mind how it’s a major win for the bride or groom who is camera shy, you can also incorporate portrait shots of the couple and family. That’s a win-win.
Now that I have given you a list of why Documentary Wedding photography could be the style you’re looking for, do you find yourself ticking the boxes in your wedding photography checklist? If yes, do send us an email and I’d be glad to provide you with further details.
