What are the benefits of hiring a documentary wedding photographer?
Alan Law from THIS IS REPORTAGE explains this better than I could. So, please read HERE.
Are all my photographs in a wedding 100% documentary/reportage-style?
No, I cover the majority of my day in a documentary style. I also do some couple portraits/group Photos (if you want me to, of course!)
YOUR WEDDING IS ORIGINAL
So, I became a wedding photographer to give couples the option to choose something different.
No fake first dance photos.
No, I won’t ask you to repeat things.
I won’t interrupt your day.
I take photographs that matter!
It’s nice if my couples can look at their photographs years from now and remember what it felt like to be there. If this is the kind of photography you want, then you are my “ideal couple”. It doesn’t get any more complicated than that, and I look forward to hearing from you. – Ashok
