My name is Peter and I’m a…reportage wedding photographer/artist/husband/father..Ive published fine art books. Ive exhibited my work, won awards for my reportage wedding photography and I love what I do. If our outlooks on what makes good wedding photography match then maybe we can work together to create an interesting, engaging and beautiful document of the Big Day Out.
For me the most important thing when choosing a wedding photographer is that the couples and the photographer’s outlook on how the wedding should be photographed match. So here’s how I like to do it..
I don’t take my couples away for hours on end while the guests are miles away enjoying the reception, eating your hors d’oeuvres and drinking your champagne. I imagine you’ll have missed lunch and fancy a drink so I aim to get you back in there early. I believe your wedding, your idea of fun, the time you want to spend with family and friend’s should inform the photography, rather than the photography dictating what happens on your wedding day. This is the beauty of reportage wedding photography. I genuinely believe that the most lasting photographs from the Big Day Out will be captured when your not even aware of my presence.
At the same time everybody will have made a big effort on the day. There’s going to be people there that want concrete assurances about their presence in a photo. So I suggest pulling the family, bridal party and of course the bride and groom together for 20 to 30 minutes, putting the crew in some great light with some cool backdrops and making some beautiful images. It doesn’t have to be a drag. It will be relaxed, fun and above all else painless. Enough time to make some great images and get you guys back to the reception before your guests have scoffed all the food and drunk all the booze.
If you think our outlook on how a wedding should be photographed match and you would like more info or to meet in person please drop me a mail on [email protected] or use the contact form on this site.
