Wedding Photography Style – Celebration
Pure, wholesome, unbridled joy
There’s a deep reality in a wedding but it’s a celebration too. So my couples tend to want a fun day where their guests are having a ball.
And when everyone gets right behind that it’s just the best atmosphere to photograph! It might be less ‘polite smile’ and more ‘throw your head back with laughter’, but no matter what kind of joy your wedding day holds, you can be sure I’ll capture it.
A high energy wedding is my favourite kind!
Laughing hard, high-fives, fist pumps, playing drunken rounders, Dad-dancing (or even funnier, Grandad-dancing) … it’s a pleasure for me to capture all the shenanigans and forever immortalise those hilarous, and sometimes frankly embarassing, moments so that you can whip those photos out and thoroughly rinse your guests for ever and ever.
Without a doubt, I’ll have the biggest grin and be laughing along with you while photographing moments like these!
Capturing this sort of energy is often more about listening than watching. I want to be where the noisy people are! I like to keep my ears open so I can sense when a moment is building and get there to catch it before it’s all over. It’s a life lesson in patience and always being ready!
Some of my favourite moments of celebration …
