Different Perspectives | Why I Love Reportage


Why I Love Reportage photography. Documentary wedding photography is about observation, anticipation and getting in on the action. Listening also plays a role and is how I found this picture. Hearing that some of the bridesmaids were getting ready outside the castle turret at Walton Castle, Clevedon, I had a glance out of the window and saw two of the bridesmaids doing their makeup and got the shot. I love the leading lines created by the blossoming vines and the balanced composition they provide. They remained totally unaware that they had their picture taken and didn't know about it until after the wedding photos were delivered to the bride and groom. These types of reportage wedding pictures are all around you at weddings; as a documentary wedding photographer, it's my job to find them.
