I’m Jeff Turnbull – A warm welcome, thank you for visiting my website. I understand that it can be overwhelming choosing the right wedding photographer for your big day. Documentary wedding photography is a unique, unobtrusive and authentic style to choose, and there are some excellent reasons why it’s a great choice for you.
If you after an adventure-loving, friendly person who will blend perfectly into your wedding, whilst capturing the emotion, love and laughter throughout your day, then you’re in the right place.
Often seen as a reporter, a documentary wedding photographer is a photographer who takes an observational and non-intrusive approach to capture a wedding.
This means you are able to enjoy your whole day, without the worry of constantly posing for the camera. Also, with this style of photography, you will find that natural, genuine moments that happen throughout your big day are captured tastefully and elegantly. Furthermore, it is able to record the most authentic pictures that repaint the scene of your wedding in one single image.
They say that a picture speaks a thousand words, so having a documentary wedding photographer capture the pure, innocent and real moments at your wedding will speak far more than regular, standard posed picture could. You will find that the real story and atmosphere of your day can be relived as your view and share your photos without the need for explanation.
When you look back on your photos, documentary style can capture the most memorable moments and transport back to those precious moments.
Like your dad seeing you in your dress for the first time, the look on the grooms face as the bride is walking down the aisle or the flower girl and page boy holding hands.
You can achieve a much more natural set of memories compared to being told where to stand, when to smile and what to do.
One of the most incredible and precious things about documentary wedding photography is that you will find that there are photos of things that you didn’t even know happened.
As the bride and groom, you and undeniably the most important people at the wedding, however, a documentary photographer appreciates that there aren’t many occasions in life where all your close family and friends are in one place. You can’t be everywhere at once on your wedding day but having a documentary wedding photographer to hand will mean that you will be able to see things that you didn’t even know happened, and there’s just something a little magical about that.
Just because you want to capture the memories of your big day doesn’t mean you’re comfortable in front of the camera.
If you’re self-conscious or little camera shy, you aren’t likely to feel comfortable having a photographer asking you to pose or to smile on demand. A documentary photographer is a fantastic way to tackle this, they won’t intrude, and you will end up with more natural and emotional pictures as a result.
With over 13 years of experience, I will work tirelessly to tell the personal story of your wedding day. I have a desire to take beautiful images that capture the spirit of your day and express themselves in creative, beautiful, exciting and standout ways.
I would be honoured to be your documentary wedding photographer on your big day.
With bookings taken up to two years in advance, contact me today to check availability and tell me all about your wedding day plans.
I look forward to hearing from you.
