As a documentary wedding photographer, I'm not looking to take over your day or stage photos; my approach is to allow your day to unfold as you've planned, or may not have planned. I like to keep my influence to a minimum, but I'm also aware of how important formals can be to some families. I do photograph group shots, but only the ones that are important to my couples. Before your wedding day, I'll ask you to send me over a list of group shots that you require, some couples want a few, and some don't want any. Either way, I'm happy.
