Buckinghamshire Wedding

DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

We have been a documentary wedding photographer and videographer for many years and have been fortunate enough to pick up some pretty amazing award-winning images in the process of travelling across the UK and beyond.

One thing we have noticed during our career of over 300 weddings is the types of words or terms used to describe wedding photography all with their own interpretations, however, a documentary wedding photographer is probably the most used. Couples can sometimes confuse what this phrase means, it can sometimes conjure thoughts of a paparazzi-style wedding photographer to someone who only shoots in black and white. We are going to dispel all this and give you a clear view of what we believe it documentary wedding photography.

To us, a documentary wedding photographer captures moments in an unobtrusive approach without the need for direction. It doesn’t mean we won’t get involved, talk to your friends and family or interact with them – fair from it but 99% of the time we call ourselves documentary wedding photographers. Our main goal is for the couple and guests to have the best day ever! We want everyone at the wedding to consider us as guests and not view us as ‘the official wedding photographer’, that way they will be much more relaxed around us and not feel they need to play up to the camera or get nervous or apprehensive.

A common question we get asked is ‘how do you know the couple?’ or ‘have you been here all day?’, we get asked these questions because we look and act just like wedding guests, we don’t hide in trees and we don’t have a super long lens that ‘snipe’ headshots from miles away and we use the silent cameras from Sony.

We’re a dedicated award-winning documentary wedding photography team, travelling across the UK and the World to capture memorable and genuine wedding moments. Experts in Wedding Photography and Wedding Videography With over 300 weddings captured across the world, we have the necessary experience and expertise to make your wedding photography a success. You can trust us with your big day.
