Reportage Wedding Photography Blog
This is my reportage wedding photography blog. The images here represent my personal favorite images from recent wedding shoots. They represent my aesthetic, my eye, or the way I see things. I most satisfied with an image when it captures a moment, a moment that tells a story. Often the moment that tells the best story is not the same moment that offers the least shadow, or most flattering light, or your best side, but rather one that engages, tells a story, makes you look again. I appreciate the value of capturing the most beautiful essence or aspect of a subject, and will capture those images for you also, these however, are the images that I felt were the most compelling….
About me: I shoot creative reportage wedding photography (and other stuff too). I am very easy going but do what needs to be done to get the shot, am bearded, love the color yellow best and don’t trust apples. I describe my style as creative reportage wedding photography, but I think the best may just for you to have a look at the images and decide for yourself. I don’t shoot ultra orthodox documentary (unless you ask me to) as I do “arrange” the odd photo, specifically your Bride and Groom Portraits. Basically, I try to predict and read the moments as they flow, and set up myself, or the background, or the light , so that I can capture those moments as they occur naturally, without any input or direction. Even so, I don’t direct or pose you as a couple. I might ask you to stand here or there (when shooting your formal portraits) , or face this way or that, but I always allow you to interact with each other naturally, so that in essence I am arranging the backdrop and light, not your pose or posture or interfering with the natural narative of the day. I also like to think that I am good with people, and that’s important on your wedding day, trust me, you don’t want a sergeant major to be co-coordinating your shoot. I am based in South Africa but work internationally. I travel on an EU passport.
