Candid Documentary Wedding Photography

Hi,  I’m Jay. I’m a  Sydney based photographer specialising in candid, documentary style wedding photography. My style is also called a photojournalistic wedding photography. What it essentially means is that l capture your wedding as it happens and try to interfere as little as possible. I will be around the entire day, documenting your day how I see it. I don’t intend to stage it for you or fake poses and expressions for the camera, just capture it truthfully and beautifully.

There will be no jumping, no fake smiles or forced kisses. l will give you some directions to help you relax and be yourself in front of the camera, but the day is yours and I’m just there to capture it for you. More about me and my style in the about page.

Pricing

I have a very simple pricing structure. I offer a full day coverage from the preparation until about an hour after dancing starts for $2250. This is an all including price with no hidden cost. If you’d like me to cover your wedding outside of Sydney metro area or a destination wedding, please contact me for a detailed quote. More about pricing.

Black and White Wedding Photography

I love black and white images. I think that they still have a place in modern wedding photography. When I strip the image of all the color and glitter, I show the essence of the moment, the raw emotions without unnecessary distractions. Black and white photography lends itself very well to wedding photography because there aren’t many events more emotional.

There are still images that require colour. Details, flowers, settings, the dress, the shoes. I will process images in colour when I think the colour plays a vital role in the photograph. All my candid wedding photographs are captured in colour, and then processed into a black and white image. Talk to me during our initial consultation to determine how much of the photography coverage you’d like in colour and how much in black and white.

Traditional Wedding Photography

As a candid wedding photographer I will try to capture moments while being unnoticed, but there are also times where traditional portrait posing still has its place. Candid wedding photography has only been around for just one generation. Wedding pictures taken before that were usually heavily posed and staged. If you want to make your parents or grandparents happy, take a couple of portraits where both you and your partner smile and look straight into the camera. I will be more than happy to capture these posed wedding photographs for you and chances are that these will be the images your grandparents will have hanging on their walls.
