A friend of mine planted the seed in my head to start pursuing a specific type of wedding photography: documentary. I’m not much for the posed, studio-esque, and old fashioned wedding photography styles, and when I’ve gone on such assignments I’ve felt a bit uninspired and stilted. However, shooting in documentary style intrigues my interest and seems a bit more creative and memorable.
Here are some examples I’ve found that inpsire me.
This is a fairly conventional wedding style, but still this photographer has some flourishes of inspiration.
Now this is what I’m talking about. This guy uses a very unique composition and perspective to capture much more than your typical senior picture taking wedding photog.
This photographer uses light well to capture a unique and compelling ambiance. Instead of showing just the public aspects of the wedding, this talented photographer captures the emotions that make up the backstage goings-ons too. I like it.
Although a bit on the conventional side, Rosemary Lion does a fine job of catching joyous wedding moments without being too stolid.
Andrew Billington has a way of using lighting to enhance the mood and add drama to his photos, and, again, he doesn’t take your normal boring posed photos.
And I need to take note of his pricing plan. He provides a number of interesting photo packages.
And on a side note, please never put music on your website to play automatically. It’s annoying!
