Why I Decided to Become a Documentary Style Wedding and Elopement Photographer

Hey there, lovebirds! If you’re reading this, you probably share my passion for all things cinematic, romantic, and utterly enchanting. I’m thrilled to share my journey as a Wedding Photographer with a twist – I’m all about that documentary, story-telling, and cinematic style. So, grab your favorite playlist, get comfy, and let’s dive into why I chose this path that’s all about capturing your special moments in the most genuine and beautiful way possible.

Embracing the Cinematic Vibe

Let’s be real – life is a movie waiting to happen. The thrill of adventure, the warmth of love, the rawness of emotions – it’s like a reel of beautiful moments just waiting to be captured. From the very beginning, I’ve been head-over-heels in love with the magic of film. Who doesn’t love to immerse themselves in a captivating storyline, right? If you’re like me – constantly creating playlists to set the mood and finding beauty in the tiniest details – then we’re already on the same page. Life’s all about creating our own cinematic masterpiece, and that’s exactly what I aim to do with my photography.

Breaking Free from the Awkward Posing

Oh boy, those days of “touch noses,” “hold hands,” and the classic “walk and laugh” poses – they had their moment, but it was time for a change. Don’t get me wrong, those poses have their charm, but they just weren’t cutting it for me anymore. I craved something deeper, something that captured the genuine connection between couples. That’s when I stumbled upon the captivating world of documentary photography, and let me tell you, it was like a breath of fresh air. I don’t pose anymore, I prompt and evoke. My goal is to capture true-to-life experiences, and foster a space for those to happen, which then evokes those raw, genuine emotions.

Falling in Love with Real Emotions

The moment I laid eyes on documentary-style work, I was flooded with emotions – love, joy, innocence, youth, romantics, and everything in between. I knew then and there that I wanted my photography to evoke the same kind of feelings. There’s a unique magic in capturing real emotions, unfiltered and unposed. It’s like freezing a genuine moment in time, a snapshot of pure love and authenticity. It was a no-brainer – I had to embrace this style and make it my own.

More Than Just Photos

Alright, let’s talk about photoshoots. Imagine this: you’re not just posing awkwardly while a camera clicks away. Nope, my friend, I want your time with me to be an experience – an unforgettable adventure that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. It’s not about rushing through a one-hour photoshoot; it’s about living and feeling every moment. Think of it as going on a date with your loved one while I’m there, discreetly documenting the magic. From the laughter that lights up your eyes to the tear that escapes grandma’s eye, every emotion deserves to be captured authentically.

No More “Say Cheese” Moments

Gone are the days of forced smiles and robotic poses. Who needs those awkward, posed pictures anyway? Life’s too short for that kind of stiffness. My mission is to make your photoshoot an absolute blast. Picture yourself running around like carefree kids with your partner, lost in your own world of love and laughter. It’s in these unscripted moments that the real magic happens. So, if you find yourself dancing in a field, stealing a kiss behind a tree, or simply reveling in each other’s company, know that I’m there to capture it all – the authentic, beautiful, and oh-so-real you.

Why Documentary, Story-Telling, Cinematic Style?

The answer is simple – because I want your photos to be more than just pictures. I want them to be windows into your own movie, where you and your partner are the stars of the show. Love stories aren’t scripted; they’re full of unexpected twists, heartwarming moments, and undeniable chemistry. That’s the essence I aim to capture – the genuine love that makes your story uniquely yours.
