Why I Love This Wedding Image of The Blues Singer.

Being a wedding photojournalist who loves capturing natural, candid and beautiful wedding photography the evening wedding reception provides lots of different and decisive moments.  Often overlooked are photos that capture the other wedding vendors you’ve booked and who have worked so hard in delivering your perfect wedding day.

That’s why I see it as part of my mission to capture the other players and characters who make up your wedding story and give you a complete wedding photojournalism package.

The Perfect Example of Wedding Photojournalism

This particular image is from Kara & Jason’s wedding day up at Rowton Castle in Shropshire and is a perfect example of how wedding photojournalism can capture the most beautiful and natural images without the need to fake or stage them.  As a result the wedding story is one that throws up real memories of moments rather than moments created by a photographer.

Here a very talented and beautiful singer was entertaining the guests (although there was one young man who wasn’t as impressed!) when the disco lights fell on her, causing her and the microphone to be beautifully silhouetted, and creating an unforgettable moment that captures the mood perfectly of a smokey blues and jazz singer performing.  It could have been from a basement club in 1930s Paris as it is a wedding reception!

The Power of Wedding Photojournalism

That’s the power of an unobtrusive wedding photojournalism approach to your big day. Capturing all those other natural and candid moments that happen alongside the main part of the wedding are what create a truly genuine and memorable wedding story that is personal to you and your own wedding day.

And that’s why this is an image I love!
