NATURAL VS POSED IMAGES

Alex + Josh_s Wedding.jpg

The number one comment we hear from couples is "We don't like 'posed' photos!" and we get it - no one wants to be standing around for hours taking staged and awkward looking photos. Our goal is to create some beautiful, timeless portraits as well as those precious moments that naturally unfold.

Whilst most photographers showcase the very best portraits and the 'WOW' shots on their websites (which tend to be more structured or posed) the actual amount of those images is a very small percentage from an entire wedding day.

You’ll notice that a lot of our own images are portraits, some are naturally posed, some are 100% candid, but they are usually focused on a certain stylistic aspect to create something that is visually appealing... but the reality is, most of your wedding day is captured in a completely natural way.

Meet Jess + Malvin, these two had the most beautiful Hunter Valley wedding. They didn't want too many 'posed' pictures but understood the importance of capturing an 'official portrait' from the day because their parents and grandparents really wanted that image. Those 'official images' were done within 5 minutes and we spend the next 55 minutes getting more editorial, romantic, and natural images with Jess, Malvin and their bridal party.

THANK YOU FOR CREATING A COLLECTION OF HAPPY MEMORIES THAT WE CAN TREASURE FOREVER XO
— Jess + Malvin

We love nose-scrunched laughs, long embraces, and happy tears but these don't tend to happen naturally or without a little direction so keep that in-mind when booking your wedding photographer. We like to say, "during those formal portraits, you bring the love and connection and we will bring the knowledge on how best to capture those moments".

The best advice we can give is to make time to interact with your loved ones on your wedding day. We want to capture special moments but we need the opportunity to be created by the two of you... and when you create those moments... magic happens!
