Old Oak Farm Wedding Photographer Taunton | Documentary Wedding Photography

Documentary wedding photography at its best! I must say I love this frame, capturing the essence of what wedding photography is all about - the connection and love between the bride and groom. You don't get shots like this during a staged portrait session. Sometimes posed photos can look like natural wedding photography, which is great and I'll sometimes do that with my clients if they so desire, but genuine, natural moments (by definition) can't really be staged. The choice of black and white for this first dance photo is so that any distracting elements of colour are eliminated so all the attention is on their connection.

The First Dance | Cow Parsley Wedding Photography Taunton

A frame from the first dance at Cow Parsley Wedding Venue, a beautiful, rustic wedding venue in Taunton. As a UK documentary wedding photographer, I'm always looking for natural moments with great light and composition - getting two of three of those results in really good photos, so I love it when all three come together. I took many frames from the first dance at this Cow Parsley wedding, but this single frame has all three elements of what I consider makes a great documentary wedding picture.
