Documentary Wedding Photography

Sparkler exit from wedding at Muncaster Castle in Ravenglass, Cumbria by Documentary Wedding Photographer Stuart James

Documentary wedding photography is not only a style, it’s an approach…and an approach I love to capture a wedding through.
Although not exclusively documentary, as I make sure to capture the limited¬†family shots required, and also create timeless beautiful portraits at different sections of the day, for me it’s the rest of the photography that tells the story, captures the emotion, and shows the love and feeling throughout.
My belief is wedding photography should be a story, not simply a collection of pretty details or endless posed photographs, for me it’s the relationships, the moments during the day, whether it’s a laugh, a tear, a small embrace, or just a glance between you, it’s those photographs that will keep the wonderful memories of your wedding day alive for yourselves and future generations.
