|Wedding Photography by Adrian Brown LRPS|
The best wedding photography arises from a great working relationship between the photographer and his clients and the photographer's passion for what he does. I consider myself to be very fortunate that my job is also one of the greatest pleasures in my life and, although I work extremely hard, it never feels like work. I frequently hear the same comment when I am photographing a wedding, "wow, you're still here?" If there are great photo opportunities then I will still be there at your wedding capturing all of the moments that tell the story of your entire day, no matter how late.
The story of your wedding day
I will be there to capture every moment of your wedding, the whole day from the very beginning to the very end. For most of it, you won't be aware of my presence, but I will be there, recording every special moment, the details, the atmosphere, the emotion and the romance of the best day of your life.
|Frequently asked questions|
What qualifies you to be a photographer?
The Royal Photographic Society have awarded me an Licentiateship. A panel of highly respected photographers and Fellows of the society have judged a sample of my work and awarded me the distinction of Licentiate. This is what the letters LRPS after my name stand for. This is an achievement I am particularly proud of.
The Royal Photographic Society was founded in 1853 'to promote the Art and Science of Photography', a mission it continues to this day. The Society has a long and proud History, established as The Photographic Society in 1853 in the pioneering days of photography, it became Royal by decree in 1894 and in 2004 it was presented with a Royal Charter.
Which areas do you cover?
Because I live in a unique location on the borders of four counties I am able to work as a wedding photographer in Warwickshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire as they are all within easy reach but I also work in areas much further afield. I regularly work in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Nottinghamshire and the Birmingham area. Distance is not a problem though. If you would like me to photograph your wedding I am happy to work anywhere in the UK or abroad. Paris in the springtime anyone?
|What is your style and how do you work?|
I consider myself to be a reportage wedding photographer, sometimes referred to as documentary or photo journalism. Rather than taking hours to pose every photo as traditional photographers used to do, I follow you throughout the day capturing the events as they unfold including the bride's preparations, the ceremony, the speeches, the first dance and the evening celebrations as well as all the details that you have put your heart and soul into like the flowers, the cars, the venue and, of course, the wedding dress.
The reportage style of photography allows me to blend into the background, quietly and unobtrusively capturing you and your guests at their best in natural photos that reveal a little bit about you in every shot. Of course, almost everyone wants to have a few family group shots but I will keep these relaxed and informal so that they blend perfectly with the rest of your photos.
|Do you use professional cameras?|
It surprises me that people ask this question still but the answer is yes. I won't bore you with the technical details but all of my cameras and equipment are used by top professionals around the world.
