Wedding Photography can be seen as traditional and documentary ways of shooting. Traditional wedding photography makes you come up with classic posing and a set up of photographs. Documentary wedding photography, which we use as well, is to find the right backgrounds and without having them to pose having their natural state.
Henri Cartier-Bresson who is one of the founder of the world’s leading photography agencies Magnum Photo‘s describes documentary photography;
”’Manufactured’ or staged photography does not concern me. And if I make a judgment, it can only be on a psychological or sociological level. There are those who take photographs arranged beforehand and those who go out to discover the image and seize it. For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which – in visual terms – questions and decides simultaneously. In order to “give a meaning” to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what he frames through the viewfinder. This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry. It is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression. One must always take photos with the greatest respect for the subject and for oneself. ”
Our Wedding Story shootings have the documentary photography approach; it involves the preparations of our couple until the end of the wedding. The meeting with our couples before the shootings gives us a chance to understand their styles. Accordingly to their style we suggest some places for outdoor shootings. After having planned the wedding day in and out we start to wait for the wedding day.
Apart for wedding stories we also have Save the Date and Trash The Dress concepts.
