Wedding Photography as Street Photography
Before becoming a photographer I was a writer and journalist, and spent several years editing a photography magazine. As a writer I learnt the art of storytelling using words, and during that time worked with some of the world’s best photographers and picture editors. The whole experience inspired me to begin to tell stories using the visual language of photography instead of words, and now that’s what I do for a living.
My candid approach to wedding photography comes from a love of street and documentary photography by the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Helen Levitt, Elliott Erwitt, Gary Winogrand, Diane Arbus, Tony Ray Jones, Gueorgui Pinkhassov and many others. Their work, and mine, is driven by the desire to observe and describe the world around us, to tell stories and to reveal something that moves us.
I think wedding photography should be approached in the same way – authentic and less posed. I’m convinced it will be the natural, storytelling pictures that you’ll treasure most in years to come.
