Here are eight photographers with a truly unique style, offering a taste of the talent that awaits your discovery
A synergy with your wedding photographer is of the utmost importance. Getting to know their style and taste is key to understanding how this can translate to your wedding photos. Take a look at the work of these eight talented individuals and open your eyes to the world of wedding photography.
1. Nick Murray
Nick says: "The only way I can describe my style is by saying it's my own. I try my very best not to be influenced by trends or what's fashionable at the moment, but to photograph from the heart, and what inspires me at that very moment when the bride steps out in front of my lens. The best style as a photographer, is when you're true to yourself, and you keep your artistic vision intact. People have called my style a mixture between fine art and fairytale, and I'm happy to accept that with open arms."
2. Sarah Bruce
Sarah says: "Incorporating motion into some of my work is something I love to do, it creates a romantic essence and really evokes emotion. Imagery that has a timeless artistic feel which evidently frames pieces of art work. I am very passionate about all my work, I love to capture something a little different."
3. Rik Pennington
Rik says: "My unique photographic style is influenced by my background in graphic design. My compositions are driven by graphic elements, shape and texture and most importantly a creative use of light. I strive to create images which combine these elements with the emotions and once in a lifetime moments at weddings."
4. Warren Grimes of Howelljones Photography
Warren says: "I would say my style is very much to do with the editing, I have a very unique way in which I edit an image. It started many years ago when I was looking at my weddings and realised there was far too much contrast and colour saturation in them. I wanted the photographs to look exactly how I print, muted colours on matte paper, and slowly I started to develop a style which represented how I print my photographs."
5. Richard P Walton
Richard says: "A wedding can become anything you make it, traditions aside there is no right or wrong way. Every wedding is different,therefore I believe the photography should be to. I try to create original pieces of art for every couple I photograph."
6. Ryan Welch & Jacob McCarthy
Ryan says: "We’re photographers for people that want something a little different from their wedding photos. We specialise in creating glamorous portraits to our clients that are far removed from your traditional wedding portraits. We want to make clients look incredible on their wedding day and use a range of techniques, as well as a background in fashion photography to capture gorgeous, relaxed and emotive images from the most precious day of your life."
7. Lynne Kennedy
Lynne says: "I specialise in elopements and tiny weddings, working mainly on the Isle of Skye and the Scottish Highlands. I bond with my couples so that they feel completely at ease with me and so their connection with each other is real. That’s what I capture - their real love. My style is intimate, romantic and timeless."
8. James Tracey
James says: "I aim to shoot weddings as naturally as possible, without interfering or staging any photos. With the exception of 20 minutes of couple photos, where I aim to deliver a ‘wow’ shot - an image that really captures the couple’s personality, their venue or something that made their wedding day unique."
