It’s always great to receive a testimonial from a client. These are people that really “get” my approach.
Their requirements and my “vision” of their day are entirely in sync and that’s both hear warming and humbling in equal measure. I’m always as flexible about how I cover day, but as I consider myself to be a photographer and a storyteller, there are some things that just sit well with that approach. This type of documentary wedding photography appeals to people who don’t want to think about photography much on the day. They’re probably the people who actually think about photography most overall. They’ll tell me about their hopes and requirements for their wedding photography with me, and I’m a good listener, but on the day, want to spend all their time with friends and family and have that recorded in a relaxed, natural and often candid way. I work in close, not on the periphery with a long lens. I mingle with the guests. I’m not the invisible man, but I recognise the day is about the couple, their friends and they’re family, not me.
Here’s what Chris sent to me once Kathy and Chris had seen their images from their Taylors Farm Retreat Wedding
Bob! I salute you! Couldn’t recommend you more mate…. Top bloke, great photographer, enough said! Thanks again, we’ll remember you for the rest of our lives together!
A selection from their wedding can be seen here.
If you like what you see and would like to know more about my approach to documentary wedding photography, you can contact me here, and there are a few more testimonials here, because it’s not about what I say. It’s really about what former clients and the photographs that I make that can do the talking.
