Documentary Wedding Photography
Documentary wedding photography is different. The purpose and goal is to write the story of your most precious day. To remember the narrative that was your wedding day decades from now.
What exactly do you feel when you look at an album of posed groups, “perfectly” lit portraits and over-romanticized images. How often do you feel the “candids” were the best in the book?
This genre of photography has many names: wedding photojournalism, documentary wedding photography and reportage wedding photography.
My goal is to bring back to you images that you will feel. Images that might make you cry, or laugh out loud or just feel your day was worth ALL that effort. Here are some features of my approach:
- You’ll likely not notice I’m there. Many might even think I’m a guest with a camera.
- I won’t take over your day with setting up group shots or pulling you away for a setup.
- Everything I do is candid. The laughing, crying, joy, tears is 100% real.
- If you like my pictures then I’d love to shoot your wedding.

Documentary Wedding and Family Photographer
I have been photographing continuously since my teens. That’s a long time. Believe me. In that time I’ve been published in numerous publications. Additionally, I’ve travelled a lot of the world and never without my camera. But, always looking for the moments that speak for that moment or person or family or ritual. There’s nothing like the power of this medium to freeze time for the viewer to be able to and make them want to spend endless moments over those singular fleeting moments. Would you like that kind of photographer at your wedding?
