I met with a client recently and they were blown away with the amount of photojournalistic pictures that were made at the wedding reception. These moments are as natural as it gets. It appears that I am right in front of the subject when these images are taken, but that is not the case. I do not want the subject aware of my presence when I am shooting these images. If they were aware, the emotions would not look natural. When I approached the bride and groom at the end of the reception to say goodbye and one last congratulations, she looked at me in surprise and said “I honestly thought you left”.
That’s the way it should be. I’m going to post some different photojournalistic images over the next couple of weeks as I update my portfolio with some of my more recent images.
