Event Details

When I started out 6 years ago, there was an uncomfortable pressure to be a documentary wedding photographer.

Posing (and even being visible) was considered a negative thing. I used to look at the photographers I liked for inspiration, I looked at their work and would think: ‘why doesn’t mine look like that?’

Throughout this time I’ve seen some amazing documentary wedding photographers, and I’m not one of them. And so I looked harder to find out why my work didn’t hit home.

What did I have to do to change and get the shots I wanted?

Intervene!* *but only slightly.

I will show you images throughout my talk explaining how I increase both the quality and quantity of photos at many stages throughout the wedding.

Prep, ceremony, speeches, more.

I’m not a documentary wedding photographer, and that’s quite ok with me, because in 6 years, after almost quitting twice, I’m now shooting weddings with more enjoyment, more confidence, more ease than ever before.
