Why Documentary Photography?
Throughout time the photograph has been used to document people, to share emotional truth and record historical moments. Using light and composition to preserve moments in time as they are is what I love to do. It is this photojournalistic, documentary approach which allows me to capture fleeting emotion, personality and unique relationships within the environment - be it at home, in the bush or on the beach. It is amazing how fast the world changes and us with it, and I think it is so valuable to have a record of our lives, a story to pass on.
“Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is.”
Prior to your session we will meet up (in-person or over the phone) to chat about the process and I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have. I'll then email you a questionnaire to complete so that I can best meet your needs and capture your story.
During your session, there is no need to 'dress up' or pose, or even look at the camera. In my family doco sessions, it does help to have a few activities in mind - we will chat about that prior to the day. Most importantly, just be yourselves and i'll take care of the rest.
Once our session is over and I have processed your images, usually within 1-2 weeks, I will send you a link to your private proofing gallery where you can download your web optimised images and choose favourites for inclusion in your custom album (if you decide to go that way). Final USB and album delivery is expected 4-6 weeks after our session.
Documentary Wedding Photography
It would be an honour to capture your day as it unfolds, to document each moment; the details, the unique relationships and interactions, the emotion.
From bridal prep in the morning to the first dance, I will be quietly watching for the moments - you won't need to stand there endlessly posing, most of the time you won't even notice me there. I know you want to enjoy your wedding day with your special people, so when the time comes I will capture some beautiful intimate portraits of the two of you and the rest of the night is yours.
Your images when viewed together create a narrative. This narrative will be printed on premium quality matte or lustre photo paper in a custom album.
