With our real and natural images, full of love, laughter, tears and the midnight dance-moves, we create true story of your wedding day. We are driven by the excitement, the nerves, the nostalgia, the people and overwhelming happiness! Nothing staged, no cliché, no cheese, no awkward posing. Just real, authentic memories which make you FEEL.


But do you wonder what Documentary Wedding Photography is all about? Well, let me break it down for you!

So, imagine your big day unfolding like a magical storybook, captured through the lens of a camera. That’s the essence of our style – often called documentary, reportage, or wedding photo-journalism. We like to think of it as the “fly-on-the-wall” approach, where we are there to document the authentic, unscripted moments that make your day uniquely yours.

As a documentary wedding photographer, we are all about breaking away from the traditional wedding photography. We are on a mission to capture your special day in all its authentic glory – the laughter, the love, and everything in-between. We want to freeze those moments of excitement and even a few nerves, giving you a photographic journey that mirrors the real essence of your day! And we want to create images you never expected to receive. The surprising gems or moments you didn’t know has happened.

It’s not about us simply showing up to take pictures, because you deserve more than that. We start each wedding with preparations chatting to you both weeks before the big day, understanding what is important to YOU, aiming to capture the genuine emotions and the natural flow of the day with knowledge of your priorities creating space for you to fully immerse in the day. Each wedding is a new adventure, and that excitement is what keeps things fresh and dynamic for us. Now, some might take the easy route, asking the bride to flash a smile on command. But here’s the thing – you will remember that photographer asked you to smile, the photos suddenly have no meaning. This is why we are all about the real, pure and unposed. The magic happens in those unplanned, candid moments. You know, the ones where emotions run high, and you’re so caught up in the moment that you forget about the camera. That’s when the most powerful images come to life – the ones that tell a story without saying a word.


Enjoy every moment, celebrate with your loved ones, and party like there’s no tomorrow!
