Thank you to our friend and English Wedding member Fiona Kelly Photography for this super helpful advice feature!
Capturing a wedding day in a more natural, documentary style is wonderful. It allows for all the emotions, love and laughter to be photographed in an unobtrusive way and gives you an amazing record of the day to look back on. My approach is all about capturing the day as it happens in order to create beautiful storytelling images that go further than just recording who was present. I love to photograph the natural moments and the in-between bits; the happy tears as you say ‘I do’, the embarrassed faces during the speeches, the proud smile on your granddad’s face as he watches you walk down the aisle. These are the photos I love to capture and the moments that make an image into something very special. However, I also totally appreciate that this is the one day where all your family, friends and loved ones are there at the same time. There is still a place for doing group photos.
