Hello and welcome to Shamack Photography. You might associate a meaning of the term ‘wedding photojournalist’ with ‘paparazzi’. This is very not true and I would like to clarify what the ‘wedding photojournalist’ means and how I use this style to produce an exclusive photographs for you.
This style is characterised by an extremely hands-off approach by the photographer who will record the events of your big day as they happen in the manner of a fly-on-the-wall documentary television crew. Much of the time the photographer will essentially be in the background. You may not even be aware of his presence! There will be very little in the way of posing or organising of individuals and groups. For this reason this style is increasingly popular with brides today. It does allow a lot of freedom of movement and the bride and groom are essentially left to enjoy their big day.
This style of photography is likely to produce a very timeless and candid record of your wedding with a high proportion of unusual shots that you probably would not expect from traditional or contemporary styles. If you have been posed for all your photographs then you essentially have already seen the images and there will be none of the ‘wow’ factor that you may get from a reportage image of you and the groom in an unguarded kiss or embrace.
As a Wedding Photojournalist I have a great deal to offer as I will be unobtrusive, quietly capturing the real moments as they happen for the bride and groom. It is my goal to use photography to tell the story of your wedding day, not dictate it for you. I would like your wedding day to flow.
Wherever possible, I shoot with short lenses. This often means I have to really get in among the action. Getting in the action is what a wedding photojournalists should be doing. Using long lenses and popping images out from behind a tree, whilst unobtrusive, will not yield strong story telling images.
I am a wedding photojournalist with ethical approach. Please do not hesitate to CONTACT ME to discuss your needs. I offer a custom packages, bespoke prices and individual service.
