What is Reportage Photography?

We have an ability to be in the right place at the right time to capture the perfect wedding photograph. We get to know and understand our couples and their wedding party.
Documentary Photography Style?
So why is our chosen photography style reportage?… Because moments matter most. Our brides and grooms over the years have chosen us as the photographer who will catch all your memories. Your Dad’s tears, those dancefloor ‘moves’ and glances of embarrassment during speeches. It’s not only the ‘big’ moments that are important for us to capture. Just as important are the quiet, ‘in-between’ moments, too.
It’s so important to Stories Of I Do that the natural course of the wedding day takes place. We love using our moment-catching skills to capture humour, fun and human interaction. Its moments like these that we look for at every wedding. The hugs, tears, kisses, laughter, even the simple touch of the hand. The majority of the day is captured with nothing staged, no poses, pure, natural images.
When we get the complete trust of our couples, we can outperform ourselves. As a team of two
Working as a team gives us the ability to capture both sets of preparations and reactions. We can capture both expressions during the entrance of the bride and the grooms first look. Our observational wedding photography approach lets us witness the days variety of emotions. We see the pre-wedding ceremony nerves to the evening dancing. We let you enjoy the day without interruption.
Our documentary wedding photography coverage is personal. Our pictures are full of context, taking you back to a particular moment with total clarity. The result is in our portfolio, a timeless body of work that has a large emotional impact.
Our Style and Approach.
