Our Documentary Style

What is documentary wedding photography?

There are many genuine and beautiful moments which take place throughout every wedding; the true moments that occur in-between the expected formalities of the day. They are real, unscripted and spontaneous. They capture your personalities, your love, your relationships and human connections – they capture the true spirit of your wedding day. This is what documentary wedding photography means to us and these are the moments we strive to capture at every wedding. When documentary photography and art combine, something magical happens and this is what we believe makes amazing wedding photography.

How we work

Our wedding photography is designed to record the atmosphere and emotion in a documentary style that really captures the essence of your day. Having photographed over 300 weddings we have developed a ‘sixth sense’ when it comes to anticipating and capturing the moment. We combine our skills and understanding of natural light and composition to produce a stunning collection of storytelling wedding photographs. Please view our slideshow above which explains our approach and philosophy in more detail.

Posed photographs & family groups

We think it’s important to fit in a small handful of family groups (around 15 mins should be plenty) plus some time for a selection of portraits of you both as a newly married couple; we’ll normally use the grounds of your venue for this and again 15-20 minutes should be ample. For the rest of the day, we hope you’ll enjoy spending it celebrating with friends and family, and we’ll be there to capture it for you.

Professional image editing

Each and every image is individually assessed and sprinkled with our personal touch of Photoshop magic so they look fantastic. Our retouching is subtle and mostly used to enhance the original image, much like traditional darkroom hand-printing.

About Us

wedding-photographer-cardiff-ruth
wedding-photographer-cardiff-oliver

We passed each other on the stairs over ten years ago, in a previous career, and our journey together began shortly after. We married seven years later and loved the experience of planning our own wedding, which we feel gives us a great understanding and empathy when it comes to photographing our clients’ special day. We live in beautiful suburb of Cardiff; close enough to the hustle and bustle but equally blessed with parks and greenery where we love to spend time outdoors, sipping coffee and playing games with our two amazing girls. We are camera, Apple and technology geeks with a passion for great food, boutique hotels, healthy living, skiing, box sets (thank you Netflix!) and most importantly the company of family and friends.

If you connect with the work in our portfolio and our natural, documentary style of shooting please drop us a line – we’d love to hear about your wedding plans.
