Unposed Wedding photography.

About me, the tl;dr version;

I’m Mike, I’m a photographer specialising in unposed wedding photography. It’s also known as documentary wedding photography and sometimes photojournalistic wedding photography.

I make documentary style images in a discreet and unobtrusive way.  Your wedding photography should show you as you are and it should reflect the day as it felt to be there. I don’t set up staged pictures or take you away from your family and friends for hours of posed portraits.  I shoot totally naturally, in a sympathetic and relaxed way. I won’t boss you around or try to dictate how the day goes. I simply want to bring my unique approach and style of unposed wedding photography to your wedding and give you back something that will remind you of how your day felt for years to come.

Whatever the name I think of it as just pictures of people – not even wedding pictures.  I cover the UK and beyond, though I’m based in Devon – where ever your wedding I can be there if we’re a good match for each other. The longer about me page is over here. If you’re thinking about hiring me you should read it, and my approach blurb to make sure we’re all on the same page. What I do is different to most and it’s important that it’s what you want.

About you;

You’re getting married of course – you want pictures of the day, though you may not be comfortable in front of a camera particularly and you’re not at all interested in cheesy blog style wedding pictures. You want something real. You value photography and pictures for what they are in themselves. You want pictures that, when you look at them or show them to others, reflect you. You can see yourself in them. If this is you call me or mail me now – we probably have things to talk about.
