Reportage photography is often ‘code’ for relaxed and informal, unobtrusive wedding photography.
To add to that, according to a real definition, reportage photography is the act of a technique that tells a story entirely through pictures. We would like to add to the list that reportage is fun and spontaneous – just like people watching – you are never sure what will happen next. Sure, experience tells you where to be at what time and who to watch, but even then you have to expect the unexpected.
Our style of wedding photography is a mix of reportage, with a few group shots along with bridal portrait photography too. The best of all worlds we feel.
Throughout your wedding day, there are definitely moments that require a photographer’s intervention. One of these would be the group shots throughout the afternoon. Our top tip for group photographs which will help them move along quickly so we can return to reportage is to write a list of the shots you want and hand it to your photographer prior to your special day. That way, nothing is forgotten or left to chance. You certainly don’t want to forget anyone we are sure!
We photograph your wedding day as it unfolds, without being obtrusive. We love to capture genuine expressions and emotions in a way that is unique to us. Sure, we are with you all day, but you will soon forget we are there.
Our favourite time for reportage photography is during your drinks reception on the afternoon of your wedding day. This is a perfect time to people watch, capturing all the excitement of your day.
To do this unobtrusively, we use a range of different techniques and lenses to keep us under the radar.
Speeches are also a great time for reportage photography, packed full of emotion and laughter – occasionally with the odd tear to add to this special time of the day!
