My Approach to Wedding Photography

By Nick English Photography - Wedding Photographer Lancashire

 

How many times have you heard people say "the best photos are the ones when you don't know they are being taken?"

Traditionally, a wedding photographer is known to organise large parts of your wedding day. Organising lengthy group photos, taking the bride and groom away from guests and family for a dedicated photoshoot, setting up the clichéed signing the register shot, making you pose in awkward and un-natural positions and force a smile, you know the rest....

I don't do any of that.

My approach is as if I was a guest at your wedding that you know well, and feel comfortable around. Blending in with your guests, and seamlessly capturing photos of it all, without asking you to do anything.

I want you to enjoy your wedding day as if I wasn't even there. 

What I do:

  • I try to blend in with your guests as much as possible, resulting in getting completely natural and un-staged photos of your wedding - often I get mistaken for a guest or friend of the Bride and Groom!
  • I wont take you away for hours on end for the "obligatory photoshoot" that most bride and grooms least look forward to. I will find a 5-10 minute break for some alone time for pictures of you together, that wont mean you miss half your wedding! Often this is after your wedding breakfast or into the evening.
  • I look to tell the story of your day through photos
  • Enjoy working with natural light. I will use flash where necessary but 90+% of my photos are from natural light alone, as I find flash can be a distraction
  • Professionally edit my photos to ensure they look consistent and real. I don't use Photoshop and most of the photos you see on my website have little or no alteration. I will alter colours and crop images if required. I want my photos to look good for generations to come, and not date / look silly in a few years.
  • I have learned to be ready for anything. Cameras breaking mid-day being one of them. Wedding cars crashing being another. I have experience at dealing with a lot of situations and reacting to ensure the photography continues
  • Group photos. You wont see many on my site, but I suggest between 5 to 8 different groups for time reasons. No one enjoys this part of the day, but I fully appreciate the requirement for some "traditional" family photos with parents, bridesmaids/ushers etc. 
  • Take lots of photos. I aim to supply you with over 400 different photos, of you, your guests, your venue, your cake - everything that makes it your day, from the morning preparations through to your first dance in the evening.
     

 

 

 

 








I like my photos to tell a story. I like you to see them and remember that moment
