Welcome to Shamack Photography. I am a professional documentary wedding photographer based in London. I work mainly across the East Anglia and South East of England, including London, Essex, Surrey, Kent but also stretching to Sussex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. If you plan to have your wedding ceremony in other parts of UK or Internationally I will be more than happy to offer my service as well.
I would like to write a little bit more about my style, approach and my interpretation of being documentary wedding photographer. This style of photography is not new at all in generic terms, but it is relatively new to wedding photography. It has become increasingly popular in the recent years. It is characterized by a natural approach from the photographer who follows the couple and the guests throughout the day while recording the events of the wedding as they happen in an unobtrusive manner.
The main goal of a reportage photographer is to make a narrative story out of the wedding by capturing natural and honest moments rather than setup poses. This method is all about observation, anticipation and spontaneity. These images convey genuine emotion with an added charm and sensitive approach based on the photographer’s artistic vision and perception. Many reportage and documentary wedding photographers accommodate formal shots as well, so do I.
Apart from focusing on storytelling I always offer the couples a small private photographic session. We could sneak out for about 40 minutes before the meal and take some wonderful photos in a relaxed location not far from the venue place. For an extra charge you may as well hire me for a separate session done on separate a day. This option gives us a bit more time, away from the guests and a wedding day schedule. It will allow you to relax and focus more on each other. Both options are great opportunities to have a nice memento for you and for your family, beautiful shots showing YOU in LOVE.
On some occasion I will work in tandem with my brother Matt who will support me if you require multiple documentary wedding photographers to cover your wedding day.
I am very flexible and happy to discuss your personal needs and vision of your wedding day. Please feel free to CONTACT ME if you have any questions regarding my style or would like to have a chat about different options. I am here for you.
Please see as well.
