After photographing over 85 weddings since starting my photography business in 2017, I'm now also offering a specialized service, focusing solely on documentary wedding photojournalism!
While I continue to offer Lifestyle Photography, with some guidance and direction, as a Wedding Photojournalist, I will capture your special day - all day - in true, documentary style, with the most hands-off, behind-the-scenes, unobtrusive approach possible. With wedding photojournalism, you are fully in charge of how your day unfolds, from start to finish, without me ever imposing myself or providing input unless asked, in the moment. As with Lifestyle Photography, as your Wedding Photojournalist, I will still capture everything as it unfolds from the best angles for light and composition, but I will be even more naturally preserving your authentic, actual moments as a "fly on the wall," rather than as a a photographer who gives you guidance here and there. You can still choose to pose for portraits, of course - but only when, how and if you want to.
Wedding photojournalism especially works well when you also hire a videographer. The best wedding film-makers will provide you with guidance and direction as he or she crafts their wedding film vision. As the wedding photojournalist, I graciously shoot around your videographer to preserve your wedding film at it's finest. Otherwise, classic photographers and videographers tend to contest with each other over who is going to get the shot, or, they repeat duplicate shots for both video and photo, wasting time on your special day! Hiring a wedding photojournalist along with your film-maker creates the perfect balance to achieve both a stunning wedding film and a collection of true-to-life, memorable images that fully preserve the authenticity of the day - and ensures that the day that goes easily and smoothly!
Whether you are hiring a videographer or not, do keep in mind that wedding photojournalism is not for everyone. In fact, it's such a "niche" style that only one couple out of over 85 of my weddings has asked me to capture their wedding this way! That's hardly over 1%!
But, if you're one of the special few who wants this very unique, authentic style, I would love to work with you! Capturing 100% authentic emotions and moments is what makes my world go 'round! Check out my wedding photojournalism gallery below, filled with genuine, authentic moments you can expect to be captured on your special day.
Or, if you decide you want Lifestyle Photography to capture all those special moments with some guidance from your photographer, as most of my clients do, then I still can't wait to work with you!
