Approaching a wedding in a documentary fashion is actually quite difficult. As I'm not directing people to pose or to do certain things, I have to be able to react and anticipate moments as they happen. There's no "OK, can you look at Mom and laugh now?". I'm there to document it as how it truly unfolded. Why would I approach things this way? To me, there's something absolutely magical about creating beautiful photographs of real and authentic moments. It's telling your story as the way it happened and not how I as a photographer directed it to be. Candid, photojournalistic and unposed moments are where my photography passion lies.
Adrian and Wendy had a late winter wedding, which meant that it was a bit colder and also day light disappeared quite quickly. However, their passion in dance and for each other soon heated up the place. As usual, I'll let the photographs tell the story from there.
Thanks to John Bello for giving me the opportunity to second shoot for him!
