Candid styles of photography are increasingly becoming popular both in general day to day photography but also in formal photographic situations.
In some instances, referred to as photo-journalism. Last time I was asked to photograph a wedding the couple actually hired me purely to take paparazzi style shows of them and their guests throughout the day. Through BMPhotographers they secured the services from another photographer for the formal shots and gave me the brief of getting a behind the scenes look of the day.
The results, when they put together my shots with the formal ones were a wonderful blend of photos that told a fuller story than if they’d gone for one or the other.
It is always amazing to be able to venture into photography a bride and a groom doing their own thing on their special day... and they images do show that freedom. Almost surrealistic wedding photography because of the lack of "posing" for this or that picture.
