What exactly is reportage wedding photography then?

Hands up who really knows what reportage wedding photography means? It’s a phrase I hear all the time as a wedding blogger, but I see photographers using the term in different ways and it all gets confusing.

What exactly is reportage wedding photography?

My friend and sponsor of the English Wedding Blog, Andrew from Lightworks Photography Cambridge, has written a lovely article all about reportage photography. He explains clearly and engagingly what you should be looking for, and the mistakes a less experienced photographer will make.

It’s an article guaranteed to make you smile too. I’m half tempted to phone Andrew up just to hear his Franglais… imagining Joey from Friends – remember that? Definitely worth a read on Andrew’s blog. Enjoy!
