Spencer & Louise
Natural wedding photography in Wales
Myddfai is a picturesque village surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park. I didn’t know such a village existed. I could discover it while backpacking in the park. The purpose of my wanderings is to explore and admire new places. This time, however, the goal was more important – to photograph Louise and Spencer’s wedding in this Wales village. They chose me as their photographer because they liked my natural wedding photography and I live in Wales.
I wrote “in Wales” because Louise and Spencer got married in Wales. If they got married in e.g. London, then I would write about natural wedding photography in London.
The location doesn’t matter.
What is this natural wedding photography?
When talking about “natural wedding photography” you can use synonyms such as candid or relaxed. Personally, I prefer the term “journalistic photography” or “documentary photography”. Therefore, I understand such photography as documenting reality. In this case, it is a few hours on the wedding day.
My goal is to tell the story of that day. I show what happened before, during and after the ceremony. I’m literally everywhere and I’m photographing interesting moments. I try to capture unique moments and accompanying emotions. This is the so-called unposed photography. This is not always successful, because very often when someone photographed notices that I’m looking at him through my lens, immediately stand at attention and … pose.
Did I manage to tell the story of the wedding day? Check out the photos below and judge yourself. And, if you like my photos and you are looking for a photographer, please contact me immediately.
I think it’s easier to take pictures at the pope’s wedding than to learn the correct pronunciation of “Myddfai”.
