Priceless Wedding Photos Like These Aren't Staged or Posed
They're unique, candid moments captured by an expert eye.
There's a world of difference between photos where people pose for the camera, and ones that capture the natural fun, romance and drama of your wedding day as it unfolds.
I’m Paul, a UK documentary wedding photographer based in London and Hertfordshire and specialising in documentary wedding photography, also known as wedding photojournalism.
Before becoming a wedding photographer, I gained years of valuable experience as a photojournalist with The Times newspaper in London where I photographed a full range of subjects – from royalty, celebrities and world leaders to war zones and natural disasters worldwide.
As a result, I bring a unique approach and style to documentary wedding photography. I find beautiful and natural moments like all the ones you can see in the slideshow above. None of those moments are staged or posed, and they happen at every single wedding. You just need a wedding photographer who is alert to them and can discreetly capture them for you forever.
"...I was floored at how vividly he captured the feeling of the day. I was aware of how well composed and beautiful his work was, but there's something so special about seeing the photos of your own day that I wasn't quite expecting..."
