One of the joys of being a wedding photographer in London is the opportunity to capture wonderful candid wedding photos against some of the most iconic backgrounds in the world. As a consequence, London reportage wedding photographers have amazing opportunities to create stunning wedding albums featuring London’s exceptional venues and locations. Despite many years of shooting weddings across the capital, I’m often astonished to discover new, breathtaking venues to work at. As you can see from my wedding venue galleries, I’ve developed an unobtrusive approach to documentary wedding photography that captures the environment just as much as the bride, groom and wedding guests, the venue and location has such an impact on the atmosphere of a wedding, so it’s pretty key to get this aspect right during your wedding planning and preparation. When you have venues like Syon Park, Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Roof Gardens to name just a few, getting married in London offers so much variety.
Documentary photography requires the ability to melt into the background and capture the candid moment that encapsulate the beauty and emotion of these very special days. My years of experience as a London wedding photography have given me a ‘sixth sense’ about where to stand and when to be ready for these perfect moment. This is particularly valuable for emotionally highly-charged moments such as the vows, the speeches or toasts and the first dance. For me, the bride and groom should be the centre of attention, not the photographer.
London wedding photographers each have their own style. As a reportage photographer I focus on allowing the emotion and excitement of the day to emerge naturally through candid imagery that captures the true essence of the wedding day; the personalities or you and your guests, the celebration of key moments and all of the beautiful little moments in between. Reportage wedding photography focuses on you, your big day and those you’ve chosen to help you celebrate. The simplicity of reportage can belie the skills required of a documentary wedding photographer, skills which include perfect timing, intuitive placement to get the perfect shot, and sympathetic awareness of your guests and their interactions so that their uninhibited reactions can be photographed to become permanent mementoes of your wedding day.
You want the very best wedding photographs possible and you’ve chosen natural London wedding photography as it offers you the chance to create powerful, beautiful images of your wedding celebration without interrupting the natural flow of your big day for complicated staged shots.
