STYLES EXPLAINED AND WHAT TO EXPECT FROM US ....
REPORTAGE or DOCUMENTARY STYLE PHOTOGRAPHY
This style of photography aims to capture your day with no posed shots. The photographer is discrete and not very visibly present.
How we do it: We particularly enjoy this style during the preparation session, ceremony and drinks reception (so most of the day!). The aim is to document the candid elements of your day in a story book fashion.
CLASSIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
This is a mix of formal and posed shots with a portrait style album in mind.
How we do it: Generally we recommend that you do some formal posed shots as parents and grandparents like to have them for their mantlepiece and your grandkids will use them in school family tree projects (what? I am a planner what do you expect!). We tend to get through these in 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your group.
How we do it: These are shots we take with the couple and some may involve the bridal party. They are posed but in a non cheesy way! We aim to reflect the personalities of the couple, the romance and the ambience of the day. So whether your style is funky, laid back, vintage or classic blacktie we observe and adjust to portray your day, your way.
In the context of wedding photography a fine art image is one created by the photographer with a specific final image in mind that can be used as an art piece to be used as a full page spread, double page spread or wall decor. These images may be candid or romantic in style.
How we do it: Rosie loves creating fine art photography! We generally aim to get at least one of these within your styled session.
Vintage style photography is when the photographer takes images with film or retro cameras or with digital with particular post production techniques (such as filters, textures) in mind. If you are having a vintage themed wedding or vintage elements to your day, vintage photography will give the feel that your photos were taken in that era.
How we do it: We include black and white photography as part of all our photography and if you wish, we can add a selection of vintage finishes to some or all of your images.
