A wedding day is a day filled with a lot of feelings and emotions. Many preparations are put in order to make this a memorable day. One important criterion to keep this memory alive is through photography. Of course, when choosing a photographer, you have to go for the best but also the style of reporting also matters too. I will advise for a day so special to go for a documentary wedding photographer also known as the reportage or photojournalism. I always am asked why when I encourage this style of photography and today I will be taking you through my reasons why summarized in these four concrete reasons.
IT IS BEST ADVISED FOR THOSE WHO ARE CAMERA SHY OR SELF CONSCIOUS.
I myself fall into this category and I must tell you there is nothing wrong about this. You cannot blame yourself for trying to be too conscious in other to strike the best smile or pose at all times. It’s supposed to be a perfect day, and what’s a perfect day if you are not looking perfect all through it. However here’s the benefit of photojournalism, the pictures are taken unaware so you do not need to bother yourself about striking the perfect pose. Rather it’s just pictures of you being happy.
YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY OF SEEING THINGS YOU DID NOT KNOW HAPPENED.
Of course, it’s a day owned by the bride and groom and they wish they could know or see everything that happens. A documentary wedding photographer gives them this opportunity, acting as the eyes of the couple throughout their special day. They have the opportunity of seeing the looks of their parents when they say I do and share a kiss. A friend on the dance floor showing off his skills and of course other bachelors meeting their potential spouse.
HERE YOU ARE MORE RELAXED, ENJOYING YOUR DAY.
One of the things you shouldn’t be bothered about on your wedding is photography. Trusting on the photojournalist to capture important moments. All though some photographers may steal you for some moments to take group pictures, they won’t be stealing you for hours as the traditional photographers do. It’s a win/win situation, you have more time to relax and enjoy your day. Knowing that memories are being stored.
LOOKING BACK AT THE MEMORIES, YOU REMEMBER WHAT YOU WERE FEELING AND NOT WHAT YOU WERE BEING TOLD TO DO.
You get to re-live the experience, whenever you go through the photographs. What you were thinking at a time of a shot and not what you were being told by the photographer. It’s a whole level of experience when you can re-live the look on your father’s face when he first saw you in a dress or your mom when you read your vows.
In summary, the appeal of hiring a documentary wedding photographer is the ability to relive the experience. I hope the next time you will be involved in planning a wedding you will advise this style of photography. You can find one of the best services on www.owenbillcliffeweddings.co.uk
