Covering Every Inch of Your Wedding

documentary wedding photographerTo some, style does not matter as much as the ability to cover everything that happened in their wedding. Starting from both the bride and groom getting ready for the day, the first look they had on each other, those tears shed by beloved parents, till the last dance of the night, you want them all captured.

This means you want a professional documentary wedding photographer. So far, no one has beater in doing the job. Here are some things you want to know before deciding your documentary wedding photographer and also the reason Catherine is one of the best.

She knows what reportage is

Not everybody knows what it is, not all photographers care to explain and eventually, not all clients are informed of what it is. Reportage is a documentary style of photographing. That’s right, this is what you’re looking for!

When executed right, it allows your wedding album to tell a beautiful story of your wedding with nothing left out. It leads people into understanding what is going on behind those pictures. Every one of them tells a line and together, it’s a fairytale of you and your partner.

She shows the proof

Lots of people take wedding pictures, put them in grayscale effect and go off telling people that they do professional reportage style. Well, now is the time that you ask for the proof.

Every professional need to keep a wedding album they’ve worked on to themselves as a reference for future clients. You want to know that she has done enough weddings and that they contain pictures that truly document the day.

She’s quiet and stealthy

Documentary pictures mean that you have to be as quiet and blend in with the place in order to not disrupt what’s going on. It is hard for photographers to not jump up or run to a place because they found a great moment to capture. This requires skills and great preparation to ensure that they are always in the right place to take pictures at the right moment.

They have to be bold and active, yet quiet and unobtrusive. That’s not easy, but if you hire the right professional, it’s what they do.

She discusses things with you

If you think that being a professional means she does not talk or ask a lot of you, you’ll want to know the truth then. True professionals want to know about their clients and try to get to know them on a personal level. They want to know what makes the both of you fell in love with each other, why did you plan the wedding in Spring, or why are you so obsessed with roses. These are all hints for them in order to know which pictures matter most and which part of the decoration deserves more space in your wedding album.

What’s even better is that she also wants to know the family. Who are your parents and what are they like? Are they the type to shed some tears on every touching moment or do they put up a strong front for their kids? What about your guests? Who are your best friends? There’s no doubt that in your wedding documentary, you want all those important people to be also included in it.

Common Couples’ Worries: But I Hate Having My Pictures Taken!

Berkshire wedding photographerWe expect this every time we meet our clients for the first time. In fact, it’s not even surprising anymore. They’re not models or photography experts, so there’s no reason to assume that they’ll come prepared and pose according to how you want them to.

Some of the major factors that affect this are relationship level, your professionalism, and your attitude in directing your clients.


Since that both your clients know each other well and is, in fact, getting married, there’s no need to worry about chemistry. What you need to conquer next is your relationship with the both of them. It’s best that you first get to know them and direct the relationship towards a friendly one. This is also what made very successful.

Some people are reluctant to express themselves openly in front of people they are not close with. Such conservative people will need more effort to get close with.

Whenever the both of you have the chance to meet, do spend the time wisely. Let them consult and give advice as if you are talking to someone you really care. It would be even better if you can genuinely care about them.

Charging for consultation?

That’s a big no. Always make time to allow them to consult with you, no matter how often. This is part of the customer service and to improve your relationship with them. Who knows, they’ll recommend you to others because you were treating them very well and is eager to help anytime. Even before the wedding day!


Not everybody is photogenic. As a Berkshire wedding photographer, it is also your job to find the ‘perfect angle’ of your clients. They might not even know it themselves! Learn poses that are simple and easy to understand by your clients. At the same time, don’t apply mundane pictures just because they are beginners in doing a photography session.

Related to the first part, relationship, learn how to break the ice. Trying to get your clients to do a romantic pose can be challenging. It is because they are seen by only you and they have to get into the feel immediately.


Talent aside, making jokes can be hard for some people. Lots of photographers hide behind cameras because they were never skillful with talking and describing. But, if jokes are not your forte, you should try another type of approach! Genuinely listening and conversing with them at the initial meeting will melt the barrier slowly and there won’t be much ice to break on D-day.


As a wedding photographer, directing your clients is part of the job. As natural as you want to be, a Berkshire wedding photographer will have to learn one or two things about directing their clients.

If you have a basic reference for posing, that’s great. The next step is to tweak those presets and create a unique pose for your clients. Be sure to let them know what you want. “I want both of you to look at the sun.”

Build the mood. Start by posing funny and enjoyable poses. It can be running, laughing or simply smiling while looking at each other. Then, move on to more intimate and lovely pictures. While the awkwardness is long gone, your clients are also getting used to your directions.

Wedding Photographer: What Really Matters

Bristol wedding photographersIf you are new to photography and found yourself indulging for hours into searching for wedding and wedding photographs and ideas, you might be asking yourself these:

  • Can I do this?
  • Will I be able to compete? I don’t have any background education in photography.

These are common questions beginners will come up with. It definitely is important and even great that you question yourself before blindly jumping in to accept offers.

But here’s the thing: formal education does not affect creativity. They are simply places to help you expand your ideas and to give insight on techniques that other professional photography comes up with.

Here’s to what really matters for a wedding photography.

Improving yourself

The process of learning does not stop the moment you step out of the class. You need to constantly explore yourself methods that work with you. Rules? Don’t let them restrain you, but rather, let distortions and blurs become part of your art.

Photography is not always about capturing clear, sharp images. It probably was the issue in the 1900s, but today, photography is a form of art. Anyone can capture crystal clear images with high-quality gears, but only creative photographers can produce art. Not only that, those that strive to improve themselves will always be able to capture beautiful images in any condition. Equipment matters, even though they are not of the latest model.

Constantly explore new things and perceptions outside wedding. This will help you to come up with new ideas and poses for taking wedding pictures. Refrain from using the same technique that you used 5 years ago over and over again.

Be an overachiever

You think you can’t because you’re just a passionate photographer geared with only your camera and love of photography? Duncan Mein Photography is a living proof that nothing is impossible. He’s one of those Bristol wedding photographers who found his passions after earning a degree in IT!

With zero education background, he started his business. He let his creativity and knowledge of technicality play with how he produces his images. No photography rules prevented him from being featured on websites and becoming a member of the SWPP.

It was not educational background, but his love of photography. That love pushes his creativity and resulted in amazing pictures.

Education is not useless

In case that you get the wrong idea that photography education is worthless, that is not what we mean. Education is a big help. It is a place where experts compile what they know to help students. The rules come up for a reason and it is good to know what those reasons are.

For example, you should use fast shutter during a wedding ceremony to be able to instantly snap pictures. But this rule only applies to instant moments and the fast shutter is to prevent blurring or ghosting of your subjects.

Education is also good in that you get to know the history and development of photography. It is a trend to track back the olden way of capturing images. Example, vintage was not realized until digital photography begins to capture real colors. Yellow sepia and rusted photograph create an essence of timelessness and longing.

Like many other Bristol wedding photographers, do not let formal education a reason that you are not confident. Believe in your creativity!

Quick Tips to Kick-off Your First Indian Wedding Stress Free!

Oh yes, it can be.

EIndian wedding photographyspecially because many photographers will find the culture, traditions, length and everything in an Indian wedding to be overwhelming! But, you here, might be someone who is interested and want to even take the challenge of Indian wedding photography. If you already have the determination and ready to book your ticket, check out our short, but big important tips to stay chill and conquer the wedding; photography-wise!


It’s important, but the thing with Indian weddings is bride and groom is pretty much separated and family will determine more than the couple in some cases. You know that you are hired for the job, but you might want to know just how many others are hired for the job! They do not think of it as impolite, but rather, a guarantee that the party is captured well and all-covered.

Learn about the wedding

There are many things you need to note about Indian weddings, let’s start with time.

Time and length

Like any other eastern traditions, Indians believe in the best time to get married. Depending on the region, whether it is South or North, they can get married at any time, like, any time. It can be 3 in the morning of evening, so if you do not communicate about this, you are going to have to peel your eyes forcefully in the middle of the night.

And then, there’s the complex arrangement of traditions that they need to do from both side, together and even their family members. Some can go as far long as 4 hours, just the procession. With the party included, you can spend more than 12 hours a day; for three days!

Steps and what really is important

In a typical western wedding, 8 hours is long and to shoot thousands of pictures is common for one couple. But, as you’ve noticed that with increase in time, there’s an increase in the number of photographs taken. If throughout the wedding you have no idea ‘swaha’ is important, you will be spending endless time taking pictures of every movement they made. It definitely comes with experience when you’ll know the important moments to record and capture.

In Indian wedding photography, guests’ pictures are not to be missed. It’s not about random guest pictures that you take when going around the room; it is every each of them greeting and blessing the couple, giving gifts and selfie-ing.

Group photo

I think every photographer out there understands the pain and patience needed in gathering people for a group photo. In Indian weddings, which can be very big at times, there are more than 1000 guests attending and there many group photos you need to take; family members of the bride and groom (separately of course), friends A, friends B, and so on. The heat, the tiredness and time spent might just test your patience, so bring a coordinator or inform the couple to have their own coordinator so group photos can be taken faster and everyone can proceed with doing whatever they want with the couple afterwards.


There will be many sides of Indian wedding photography and culture that will surprise you even when you have previously known about! With time, you will get used to them and understand why they do something in a certain way.

Prepping For The Boudoir Photo Shoot

Visualize the clothes.

boudoir photographyThe right set of clothes can make things so much better and can make you look so much sexier once your boudoir photography shots come out so make it a point to get this taken into account as much as you possibly can while you are at it. Knowing how you look like in the clothes that you end up wearing for the photo shoot is a pretty good start to how the rest of the other plans you have pan out so far so make sure that you get this taken into account as much as you possibly can. Take some time out of your day to think about this. Make a list of the stuff that look great on you versus the stuff that don’t. Carefully curate what you have in your closet versus the stuff that you need to buy out so far. If you would like to go shopping one way or the other, then get right to it. Get a stylist to give you clothing options when it all comes down to it. Every little bit can help you out a lot and this is something that you ought to take into account as much as you possibly can.

Grab a style savvy confidante.

It’s nice if you honestly feel confident about your sense of style and your choices in the clothes that you end up wearing for the boudoir photography shoot but if ever there is a chance that you don’t really trust in your fashion forward instincts at some point or so, then you ought to think about the fact that there are other people that you can actually consult when it comes to things like this. Bring a friend along. If you have that sister or cousin who has always dressed well and who according to your opinion has an impeccable sense of style, then you ought to think about the possibility of getting her point of view or perspective about the outfits that you pick out to wear and prep for the photo shoot that you are planning to pose for when it all comes down to it. It will help assure you of your decisions and plans for the photo shoot.

Wax a few days before the shoot.

Waxing a little too soon before the shoot could result to you looking red and swollen up all over. Your skin will feel sore and you will be uncomfortable overall during the boudoir photography shoot. Make sure that you time your waxing session accordingly so that you are without hair but also so that you aren’t in pain or anything like that while you are at it. Be smart and strategic with how you book out your waxing session. If you want to go down the painless route, you can always get all of that hair lasered off.


And we’re saying this in bold and capital letters so that you understand how important this advice is. You don’t want to end up looking orange and bleeding icky brownish colors on the side during the day of the wedding. it will stain your dress and it will make you look ridiculous overall so make sure that you take that into consideration as much as you possibly can.

What To Keep In Mind When Planning A Wedding

Go over the ground rules.

wedding photographers South WalesPlanning a wedding means that you are bringing along loads and loads of people coming from different walks of life and with different personalities. It would be wise for you to establish a certain common ground in the way of how expectations should be set so far so that they know how to act and what are expected of them so far. This nifty little discussion can come in handy especially when you are dealing with a particularly rowdy crowd of groomsmen who might end up drinking a little too much and talking a little too loudly during the wedding day reception. Going over the ground rules will at least help them keep things in line so that they don’t go overboard with anything during the day of the wedding. It is something that is both smart and highly advised to get that taken into account as much as possible.

Assess your cash.

How much money do you and your partner have in the bank right now? That is what you technically refer to as liquid cash or cash that you can take out anytime. How much are you expecting in the near future in the form of loan payments or future salaries and the like? Those are what you call as collectibles. It would be best for you to be well aware of the cycle of money that is coming in and going out so far in order for you to be able to properly prepare for what you have up ahead of you. The wedding day can be a really costly affair to have to go through with at times and something that you ought to check out in all of the best ways.

Give your guests something to pay attention to.

If they don’t have anything to help keep them entertained and focus during the ceremony or during the reception of your wedding day, they might wander off and easily get bored and you need this taken into account accordingly while you are at it. Have a band set up or have something fairly similar to that so that your guests are properly entertained and so that there is a certain flow to how things go during the day of the wedding. This will give your wedding photographers South Wales enough material to work out for the wedding photos.

Update your speed dials.

You should be able to reach the people that you need to reach in the nick of time or right away. It helps if you have important vendors such as your planner and your wedding photographers South Wales for the wedding easily within reach. It will just make things so much more convenient for you as a bride. Have a contacts list of people handy as well. This way, you have your wedding command center with you anywhere you may go. You need to be able to reach people right away in the event that you have some of those light bulb moments where a brilliant idea suddenly comes along somehow.

Difficult People You Will Encounter When Wedding Planning

The wannabe planners.

wedding photographer EssexThese are the over eager helpful’s who will want to know about your every single wedding planning detail. Just let them know that you got a handle on things and that they will turn out to be just fine. Save the wedding planner for the real wedding planner who is committed to the job. Do this in pretty much the same way that you are saving the actual photography coverage of your wedding for a real wedding photographer Essex.

The MIA friend.

People can get busy at times and their schedules can be impossible. It’s either that or they just don’t want to be there for you or help you out during the wedding planning. Don’t take things too personally. You will have a lot of other friends in place of that one friend who goes missing in action.

The worker trying to score an invite.

You should understand this fairly early on as much as possible. You don’t owe anyone anything. Just because someone happens to be a co-worker, it doesn’t mean that you owe him or her an invitation so far. If someone is suddenly feeling chummy and rubbing up on you hoping to score an invite and you don’t want them to be part of your wedding in the first place, just politely tell them or let the word out that the wedding is intimate and that you are keeping the party small by inviting only the closest friends and relatives.

The prying relative.

There’s bound to be one who will feel as if they are obliged to weigh in on all of the decisions that you need to make when you are planning out your wedding so far but you shouldn’t allow yourself to be restricted when it comes to things or people like this. The thing is, you just need to make sure that you get to draw the line. Setting up perimeters is extremely important and something that you ought to try to prioritize as much as possible so that you will be able to see things working to your advantage, whether that prying relative tends to agree with it or not. You don’t have to seek out anyone’s satisfaction when it comes to the decisions that you need to make about the wedding. All that you technically need to worry about are your own.

The drama queen.

It can be a male or a female. The point about all of this though is that there is bound to be a friend or a family relative who tends to want to hog all of the attention at some point or so. This is not a reason for you to lose your head about. This friend or relative will try to hog the attention of the wedding photographer Essex all the time, and so crazy stunts similar to this. Just keep it cool and stay poised all throughout the time that you are there. There will be so many times wherein you will feel tried and tested by the people that you end up inviting to the wedding but you need to understand that you shouldn’t let people’s behaviors ruin the kind of outlook that you have for the wedding day so far. Your wedding will be so much bigger and o much more important than the self-important views of someone who just happens to be there. You can’t really control how they act during the day but you can certainly control how you go ahead and react to the situation that tends to come along with it.

What Not To Fall Into As A Bride

Being a victim of crash dieting.

Bristol wedding photographerYou can’t magically shrink your waist line and starving yourself or going for some preposterous type of diet will not help you get the goals that you would like to achieve. If you want to reduce your weight, then it will need to be a slow and eventual process. Don’t rush through anything because you will end up being all over the place when it all comes down to it. You want to look great for your Bristol wedding photographer but you don’t want to look emaciated either.

Having too big a gap between ceremony and reception.

It will be in your best interest to make sure that the ceremony and the reception for the wedding are as close to each other as much as possible. The truth of the matter is that this will end up costing you a lot of money and this is a situation that you try to avoid as much as you possibly can while you are at it. If you can hold the wedding ceremony and the reception all in one place, then that will even turn out to be so much better because it means that you get to limit the delays because there will be no travel time at all. This will also maximize the amount of time that your Bristol wedding photographer spends on the wedding.

Feeling obliged to wear an updo.

You don’t have to especially if you feel as if it doesn’t really work that well with the kind of face shape that you have. If you have any doubts about this at any point in time, you should try to practice the look or have a practice beauty session out with your hairstylist. Wear your hair both up and down so that you can go ahead and compare accordingly and so that you will be able to see which hairstyle works better for you at the end of the day. Don’t be restricted to the aspect of having to wear your hair up all of the time. It doesn’t have to be that way at all and you don’t have to go through all of that. You just need to do what works out to be best for you and there’s that. It’s not the same for everyone and at the end of the day; it really doesn’t have to be. Take note of that and you will have things work out for you in all of the best ways.

Misplacing the big ring.

This is not something that you would want to happen to you at any point in time. You need to know right out that misplacing the engagement ring can drive a wedge between you and your partner because what this technically means is that you aren’t exactly taking proper care of your ring in the first place. Take special care of your ring. It is the ultimate simple of your partner’s proposal to get married to you and this is no small thing to have to flash around. Don’t wear it when you are out at sea or swimming. Don’t expose it to chemicals and abrasives. Go out of your way to take care of it every bit of the way.
