Hi, I'm Austin a wedding photographer based in the North West. I've been shooting weddings for 7 years. The wider world beckoned and it's safe to say the opportunities wedding photography has given me must make it one of the best jobs out there.
My style of wedding photography is probably best described as creative documentary with contemporary portraiture. There’s lots of buzz words around in wedding photography so I’ll explain exactly what that means...
Good documentary style wedding photography is as much an art form as highly constructed fashion photography. Knowing where to be at the right time is crucial and is something that is gained through experience. Being in the right place at the right time is critical, but more important, in my opinion, is seeing the right light.
I get lots of comments that my pictures have captured the essence of the day, people look relaxed and unaware of the camera. That’s a great compliment to me as I know I've done my job properly. Documentary wedding photography involves looking for the angles, light and also pressing the shutter at the right time. A fraction of a second can make the difference between a great and a mediocre picture. I want to create a moment between a couple that looks natural and unforced. I’m just there to let things flow and capture the moment.
CREATIVE & RELAXED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
I've been lucky enough to have photographed many different weddings, I love that each and every wedding I attend is completely different to the rest; the light, location, the people, the moments, the speeches, the laughs, the tearful moments, each and every one is unique to that couple. Moments like this can’t be staged or re-created, they just happen, and I love that I get to capture those moments. I completely immerse myself within the day, becoming more of a wedding guest than “the wedding photographer”.
