Our Wedding Photography Style + Approach
Life is one big story of adventure. Whether you are trekking through mountains, traveling the world, getting married, or celebrating key moments in your life, it all comes down to one thing, adventure. We are Atlanta wedding photographers, but we also travel all over with no travel fees in the continental US for amazing weddings! We also travel for engagements! We believe that weddings are about two awesome people, love, and a commitment.
Since we are storytellers, we feel the best way to showcase photographs is with beautiful albums and amazing wall art pieces that can be experienced by everyone who visits your home and past down through generations. Of course social media is great, but it fails to tell a great story or provide a tangible way to truly enjoy the story with your family and friends for generations to come.
We classify our wedding style and approach as documentary editorial wedding photography. What exactly does that mean? You might have heard terms like photojournalistic or candid wedding photography, which is essentially what we do. Basically, we are storytellers. We strive to capture all of the elements of your wedding day. From the smallest details, like the notes you exchange with your loved one, to the tears of joy as you see them for the first time, all the way up to the excitement during your reception. It’s all documented one photograph at a time to tell a complete story.
When it comes to your wedding, we take a very hands-off approach and simply document the moments and emotions of the story as they unfold naturally while incorporating our creative work. We like to be close amongst the action, but stay unobtrusive, as if we are just guests at your wedding. Because of our documentary style, we typically do not do too many traditional type family portraits. We appreciate that some couples would like some formal, traditional type photography, but we strongly encourage our clients to limit them. This gives us more time to explore your wedding day and stay focused on telling the story naturally.
The editorial aspect comes in when we photograph your wedding party and your portraits at your wedding. Here, we like to give some direction, but not necessarily pose you, in order to create natural candid looking shots that are flattering as if we were photographing you for a magazine. We spend more time with couple’s portraits than photographing wedding parties, as these highly creative portraits are the ones our clients like to showcase in their albums and the wall art in their homes. We understand that our wedding photography style and approach is not the perfect fit for everyone. We want to ensure that we are a perfect match for your idea of your wedding day, so please feel free to take time to view our wedding portfolio and blog to get a better idea of our documentary editorial approach to your day. Of course we encourage you to meet us and to see what our clients have to say about why us.
