What is Documentary / Reportage Photojournalist / Wedding Photography?
These terms refer to same thing: an observational approach where the photographer does not direct or pose people. It requires patient observation, knowing where the best pictures are likely to happen in advance, fast instinct, knowing people and gauging situations.

Can you fit into the timing of our day?
It’s a good idea to discuss the timings for the day with me as early as possible to make sure there is time for me to get between different venues etc. I like to be at the ceremony around ½ hour before the start if possible to capture the general excitement. Ideally set aside 20-30 minutes at some point for some couple portraits and 15-20 minutes for group photos.
Can we provide you with a meal??
Yes please. It’s really helpful to be fed at the same time as the other guests. No one wants to be photographed eating, so this is a good time for me to have a break but be ready for the speeches & after dinner entertainment. There’s no need to seat me with your guests, a quiet spot away from the party where I can check through the images from the day so far will be perfect.
