The Semi-Directed Shots
In my last post I showed a selection of purely candid moments from Nick & Catriona’s Cecil Green Park House wedding. Today I’m going to show you images that I directed. I prefer to say ‘semi-directed’ because all I do is suggest good locations, and maybe give people an idea for a natural pose. I never suggest, or try to elicit particular facial expressions. I don’t make jokes or silly noises so that everybody smiles, nor do I ask the bride and groom to close their eyes and think of the first time they kissed. That all seems a bit hokey to me. I want my clients to be themselves, enjoy each others company and enjoy the moment. Photography doesn’t need to be a production after all!
