Real action, real emotion, as it happens..
My passion for reportage wedding photography came from my experience photographing people as a photojournalist. I have always preferred documenting natural moments and real emotion. A wedding day celebration is full of these in abundance with people enjoying themselves and reacting to all the special events of the ceremony and wedding reception.
Through reportage photography I am able to photograph without interruption and by remaining unobtrusive capture the true essence of the wedding. The photo above is from a sequence of images taken of the couples first dance. I anticipated this moment when the groom lifted his bride into the air, so I manoeuvred into a postion where I could see the faces of the couple and the reactions of the wedding party. The exposure was set so I could record a slight motion blur in the brides wedding gown whilst keeping the faces sharp and with careful composition this beautiful moment was captured.
