What is Documentary Wedding Photography?


When you receive your wedding photos I want them to be about you, about your day and about the people who were there. I want you to remember what it felt like to be there and not about the marathon photo session that we had. So how do we accomplish this? Keep it simple! Get out there and enjoy your day, party you arse off and spend time with your favourite people! Actually enjoy your cocktail hour.

Are there really no posed portraits taken during the day?

Well, that’s really up to you - it’s your day. Still looking or some epic portraits? We can always slide in a short portrait session at some point during the day with the goal of capturing a few stunning portraits. As for family formals? Classy, simple set ups of you and your family, then you’re off to your cocktail reception. I make it my goal to monopolize as little of your day.

Still not sure?
