Reportage Wedding Photography
If you need a wedding photographer to cover your event and it’s the reportage style that you’re after, look no further. I don’t limit myself to any one particular style of photography, but I agree, it’s the candid shots which capture the atmosphere or the real emotion at that particular moment in time.
Over the years, we have generally moved away from the classic formal wedding style of photography. There is still a place for the odd formal shot, such as those multi generational images, but people really do tend to relate more to seeing themselves acting completely naturally rather than posed and staring at the camera lens.
You’ll know yourself that unless the photographer takes the shot a split second after you’ve struck the pose, your personality quickly disappears and is replaced with a vacant stare which you’ll absolutely hate.

Minimum intervention & direction
The trick is to make everyone feel totally relaxed and at ease in the presence of the photographer. I circulate and chat with people, perhaps make them chuckle, gauge what they do or don’t like and basically act commensurately.
So many people have commented later on, that they barely noticed I was there at all, let alone had a camera in my hand.

Chronological reportage wedding coverage
Your day will be captured and recorded as it happens. From getting ready through to the ceremony, the reception and the first dance and anything in between. All those special moments, the tension, the nerves, the humour, the tears and the passion. Genuine emotions caught in reportage style, for you to relive again and again.
Variety of styles
Although the reportage style of wedding photography is gaining popularity, the wise choice perhaps, is to vary the styles somewhat. Perhaps have some reportage, a few formal shots, a few dramatic arty images and to then mix up the presentation with colour, black and white and a few colour popped images where appropriate, though where a reportage style is preferred, black and white images often are the favoured choice.
Booking your professional wedding photographer
I am based in Mid Sussex, but will cover weddings across the South of England. Please do check out the rest of this site. You’ll see examples of my wedding and portrait photography work throughout the gallery and the blogs sections and I’d be happy to show you samples of wedding photobooks etc.
Check out the rest of the site for some useful unbiassed advice. As I said, I don’t do a hard sell. You can see what I offer, my price etc in a very transparent way. I then leave you to decide. If you do book me, it’s a simple 10% deposit to secure the date in my diary.

Of course it is also now quite popular to have a wedding theme that runs through the day’s event. I aim to ensure that your sequence of images reflect that theme and I’m keen to know of any other ‘sub plot’ which has relevance to the day or key people in attendance.
Reportage wedding photography is all about story telling, sometimes happy, sometimes sad, but always with meaning.
Don’t leave it too late
For some reason, people often leave it rather late to research, find and ultimately book their chosen wedding photographer. Although not all of my dates for next year are taken yet, you would be surprised how popular a particular date gets and I regularly get asked about the same date time and time again. Unfortunately I can only cover one wedding per day. Typically I’m booked at least 12 months in advance.
Your choice of presentation style
Your high resolution wedding images are presented to you on a bespoke USB. I will also be happy to put together a slideshow to your choice of music should you so wish, or maybe create a photobook, which I design and have produced by an outsourced specialist who combines modern technology with old school bookbinding skills.
