West Midlands wedding photographers

We are wedding photographers based in Hereford, West Midlands, UK. Natural wedding photography is what we do. We also love experimenting and having fun with the camera and create unique pictures filled with fun and emotion. If you want to see more examples of our work, here is the slideshow featuring some of our recent weddings at Dewsall Court, Hereford:

What is a good wedding photography?

Today I was trying to define something that is called a ‘good wedding photography’. There are so many amazing wedding photographers out there and also many brides who want to have their memories captured perfectly. However, sometimes quantity is more important than quality. Some of the brides send long lists to their wedding photographers requesting specific images.

This is something that wedding blogs started – they said: ‘make sure your photographer captures this and that, make sure they know’. We do know what to capture though, so please trust us and relax – we’ve got this!

Leave some space for creativity

So those long checklists are great but they sometimes might leave very little space for creativity. Your photographer will be thinking of ticking all those images off the list and he/she might miss those most precious moments. Of course a good balance is always key, so it is still important to have a chat with your photographer and let him/her know what images are important to you.

And if you like natural wedding photography, let your photographer know too. Every wedding is different and every couple is unique. We have couples who love being in front of the camera, and couples who literally give us 10 minutes max for their pictures. Which couple are you?

Natural wedding photography is good photography

Natural wedding photography and the ability to capture those unique moments is one of the main ingredients of a good wedding photography. Different weddings have very similar schedules. Bride and groom getting ready, the ceremony, formal pictures, drinks and canapes, speeches, the wedding breakfast followed by cake cutting and the first dance. There are some ‘obvious’ images that a photographer needs to take.

But what happens between those scripted moments is just magic.

Trust your photographer

You can help the photographer achieve better results by trusting him/her. Hopefully you’re not a big fan of many staged pictures and will leave the photographer plenty of space for creativity. By ‘staged’ I mean asking the photographer to take a picture under the archway in the direct light only because it is nicely decorated with flowers. Trust me – you will not like the final effect – a picture where everybody is squinting and feeling forced. We have photographed so many weddings – we know what works and what doesn’t.

Our job is always to watch the best possible light – so sometimes some locations just don’t work because of the harsh and direct sun. Natural wedding photography will avoid those unnatural moments.

Let your photographer capture the emotions

Weddings are all about the feelings, the emotions, love, beautiful moments and relationships – please let your photographer capture that. The most precious moments happen when we least expect them.
