Reportage wedding photography with Phil Drinkwater

Reportage wedding photography is a style I love. For those of you who’d like a definition, reportage is the art of telling a story through photography: seeing a wedding as a day which unfolds through people’s interactions (smiles, tears, contemplation) rather than a collection of details in sequence.

That’s my definition, and my understanding. The experts explain it better: read what is reportage wedding photography? by my friend and blog advertiser Phil Drinkwater. Phil specialises in reportage and has launched his new website to showcase this side of his wedding photography business.

Choosing reportage photography for your wedding

Reportage wedding photography will focus more on the moments than on the details of your day. If your wedding is all about friends and family coming together to celebrate, then reportage could be perfect for you.

If posing for the camera isn’t for you, or if you want to enjoy every second of your wedding without worrying about the photography, then reportage could be right up your street.

If you want your wedding album to be full of the most tender memories, the little moments you might have missed, rather than a set of formal portraits of you and your guests with everyone looking into the camera – choose reportage.

    I’ve never heard of this concept before – reportage photography, I love how it focuses more on the meaningful details most people miss.

      Thats it exactly Peter – just the perfect moments that say the most about who you are and the day you shared 🙂

  • It’s nice to see this stye of photography gaining more traction in the UK. Here in the US, it’s been popular for some time, but it lacks the elegance factor that British photographers somehow bring to it. Very good work indeed, Phil, and I can see you put a lot of effort into composition, positioning, lighting and emotion with these images.
