What’s Candid wedding photography

“Even though fixed in time, a photograph evokes as much feeling as that which comes from music or dance. Whatever the mode – from the snapshot to the decisive moment to multi-media montage – the intent and purpose of photography is to render in visual terms feelings and experiences that often elude the ability of words to describe. In any case, the eyes have it, and the imagination will always soar farther than was expected,” – Ralph Gibson.

If weddings are about love and the idea that two people found someone they couldn’t live without, then your wedding photography should be about you and your love of one another, but who are you and at what point do you give us the real you? Well most people tell me they’re more comfortable in front of a camera when they don’t know it’s there. They agree that when they feel like someone’s watching them, they’re more inhibited, more self conscience and less likely to be spontaneous or act like themselves, and that’s no good. We need the exact opposite. We need you to feel less inhibited, less self conscience and more spontaneous so that you’ll act like yourself.

A Document of your Wedding

So just as two lovers have their own mannerisms, so do documentary wedding photographers trained in the art of candid wedding photojournalism. There’s no better way for a photographer to capture who you are than through a candid and documentary approach. In this way your photographer sees the real you as he or she captures what may be lost or forgotten moments like the quick slap on the butt, a child being tossed into the air, the feeling of a fork going through your wedding cake as you taste it for the first time and that awkward and humiliating face you make while dancing on the dance floor (which we love you for). These moments are so tiny and minuscule that you hardly ever remember them, but, they’re so vital. In these moments the photographer sees the real you, and in these tiny moments the greatest stories about your wedding day are told.

You’re being yourself and you look so much happier, because of it.
