#857 Ottawa Wedding Photography – A&A

I mentioned a while back I was working on A&A’s wedding album.
Well, it’s now handed in and I’d like to show a little more of their day.

I also mentioned that I shoot weddings with a documentary approach. This means more natural candids of people to tell the story of the day and less staged & technically ‘perfect’ photos.

I use flash when appropriate but do not rely on elaborate lighting or extensive equipment.

Why?

Elaborate lighting is cumbersome and limits spontaneity. Even with a lightning fast set-up it takes time and cannot easily follow people being photographed if they want to move.

There are some amazing photographers who choose to use more lighting to produce beautiful studio-esque imagery for your wedding (and we can recommend some good ones!) I prefer to take advantage of a lightweight approach to capture the fun and produce a candid story of the wedding day.

Guests are encouraged to “ignore the photographer!” Even group photos are photographed to draw a natural look from people.

A&A liked my approach and allowed me to follow the style they enjoyed. They are a fun-loving couple that let their day unfold naturally.

They smiled at the results and took a card for a friend who had asked for it. Almost all of our weddings come from referrals or people who know my style. We do not advertise for wedding photography – our wedding clients find us.
