For me, photography is about honesty and truth. Your emotions and experiences should be recorded as they happen, ensuring the natural expressions are not impeded by overbearing stage management. Whether applied to wedding photography of family imagery, some set-ups have their place but following most shoots, clients have always gravitated towards the more docmentary, reportage style images as they are simply more honest, emotive and authentic..
At weddings, by adopting a quiet and subtle approach, even down to the shoes I wear and cameras I use, the record of your day will be real. My photographs are a guest’s-eye view of your special day and will be a beautiful aide-memoire for many happy years to come.
Something you both built together.
Family portraiture normally takes one of two forms, the anniversary or family event, or the landmark generation photo, or a combination of the two. It is great to have an official record shot spanning the generations, but equally, that one-off shot, that moment of a an individual, a split second of emotion, where they are unaware of the camera, that's equally valuable and often triggers emotion and memory more effictively for the rest of the family.
