There are many “styles” of wedding photography. I originally trained as a cinematographer, and there was a quote one of my teachers was always found of uttering; “A good cinematographer can always give you the look you want”. And that’s kinda how I feel about wedding styles. It my job to give you the look and the feel you want. Obviously within the limitations time, location and budget.
The crux of the wedding photographers job is story telling; chronicling those intimate moment and compiling them into a narrative of the day. There are various methods to achieve this. I like to embed myself in those early stages and capture the nervous energy and the intimate moments that build up to the main event. The main event is about capture and coverage, but the prelude is about intimacy. I will talk more about certain shots in depth and how I achieved them. And about getting intimate shots in my next post.
