Also known as
. The main goal of these styles is to make a narrative story
out of the wedding by capturing natural moments rather than setup poses. Observation and spontaneity are key elements here.
Following points are main reasons why I love to use natural photography as fundamental tool for wedding day photography:
• result are
full of moments and genuine emotions, snapshots that reflect the reality
and resemble your real memories of the day,
• documentary captures unique moment that are not copies of someone else’s wedding!
• subjects are not camera aware, are not acting and photographer does not influence the story,
prefer ambient light and coincides with the crowd.
• no special planning is needed for documentary, we need to be familiar with your wedding schedule
to be sure to capture each milestone of the wedding day.
By milestone we understand getting ready, civil or religious ceremony, congratulations, group pictures, cocktail hour or reception
(Agape), speeches, dinner, first dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, habits and traditions (čepčenie, ľudové tance ...). Reportage
wedding photography accommodates formal shots as well so group photos, decorations and location photos are part of our
wedding documentary. To see a difference between Photojournalism vs. Fine art see also Fine Art gallery here. Unless you give
us other instructions we cover both during wedding day, documentary is spontaneous and posed photos have to be planned.
