Unposed Wedding Photography, another award.

If you have spent time on this site you have probably come to the understanding that I’m all about unposed wedding photography. I really don’t see any need to go interfering with the couple and their day in order to make images like this which as far as I’m concerned show you and more importantly them what their wedding day felt like.

Destination wedding photography. An Award.

A couple more awards dropped through the ‘e-letterbox’ recently. Both from the Wedding Photojournalist Association.  Here’s the first of them, I’ll post the second in a few days perhaps. This image comes from Frank and Romy’s destination wedding in New Orleans. I say destination wedding, it was a destination wedding for me, the couple themselves...

Destination Wedding Photography. An Award

I was going to blog something else today,  this was going to be about a recent wedding at Colehayes Park in Devon, not destination wedding photography but then this happened and so I’ve decided to post the wedding tomorrow and post this one instead today.

Top Wedding Photojournalism.

  Scrolling idly through Instagram last night a note that I had been ‘tagged’ popped up. ‘Top Wedding Photojournalism” it said.  It transpires that I have won two awards in the latest round of the WPJA judging. This image is the first of those two, I’ll blog the next in a day or so.  I’ve written...

Michael Riley Photography

 

I am a a multi award winning UK and destination wedding photographer. Based in Devon, I offer wedding coverage throughout the UK and anywhere else in the world for couples who like my work and approach to a wedding.

 

My wedding photography is entirely unposed, natural & candid. My style is documentary wedding photography or reportage wedding photography which means that I don't intervene in the day for the sake of a shot. I don't pose, interfere or otherwise fuss and faff. Everything is relaxed, laid back and fun allowing for those natural moments to come through and be recorded as memories. You get all the moments observed not orchestrated. If you like the sound of this get in touch via my contact page.
