Why is wedding photography even a thing? Your wedding is probably the biggest celebration you’ll throw during your lifetime. You’ll give it hours and hours of thought and consideration, often spanning months, sometimes even years. Carefully planning every detail to make sure you and your loved ones have a day you’ll never forget. Because it’s only one day, making sure you hire the right photographer to preserve those moments for a lifetime, is key. As Devon wedding photographers, that’s where we come in.
Why We Decided to Become Wedding Photographers
We often get asked why we decided to become Devon wedding photographers and the answer is easy – because we love photographing people. If you think about it, a wedding is an event like no other. The day goes through several different phases, each of which evokes very different emotions, reactions and interactions. Each wedding day starts with two separate families and finally ends with them all now part of a big new family!
Documentary, or, Photojournalistic Style Photography
It’s exciting, emotional and fun, all at once; a roller-coaster of a story played out in just one day. Which is exactly why we work in a documentary, or, photojournalistic style. Photojournalism is the term used to describe telling a story through pictures. That’s exactly what we do with our hands-off approach to our wedding photography. As a result you won’t hear us asking anybody to do anything for the camera or to smile for us. Our aim is to give you a beautifully visual photographic narrative of your real day, the wedding and moments that really happened, as they happened. Not a fake, camera-aware version that doesn’t represent who you really are as a couple, and as families and friends.
Photography Services in North and South Devon
Creating beautiful environmental portraits of the two of you is also something we get just a little bit excited about. We’re spoilt by the variety of epic landscapes Devon has to offer and we feel that the two of you, and the location you have chosen for your wedding, deserve to be photographed with exactly the same expertise, craftsmanship and artistry as you’d expect from a studio setting.
We are very lucky to be based in the incredibly gorgeous Devon! Not only do we cover all areas of North and South Devon, but we love travelling further afield too. If you have plans to marry elsewhere in the UK, or are hoping for a destination wedding abroad, we’d love to hear all about it.
