Documentary Wedding Photographer

Natural and unposed images captured in an unobtrusive style by documentary wedding photographer, Deji Johnson.

Documentary Wedding Photographer

My approach to wedding photography is all about capturing real emotion. I am a documentary style wedding photographer, looking for natural moments and creating an emotive visual record of your day. You’ll look back on your wedding and relive how it felt to be surrounded by your loved ones, often realising I have captured moments that you were unaware were happening.

Candid Wedding Photos

From tears on the cheek of a family member as you walk down the aisle, to the adoring glances of a child as they admire the details at their own eye level – I have developed a sense of where to look to find the images that will give you another perspective when you look back in years to come. Documentary wedding photography is an investment that you’ll keep enjoying and sharing long after the confetti has been thrown. As a documentary wedding photographer, I also look for the laughter and smiles, the memorable dance moves (both awesome and puzzling!) and the cheeky glances between groomsmen as someone mentions ‘that incident’ in their speech.

What is Documentary Wedding Photography?

Documentary wedding photography allows you to look back on your day and relive it through candid and interesting shots that convey real emotion in a timeless artistic style. Unposed, natural images take skill and training to anticipate and capture beautifully; documentary wedding photography is what I’m passionate about and I am always refining my approach to make sure I deliver memorable images.

Working with me as your documentary style wedding photographer you’ll have the freedom to enjoy your day, knowing that I’m busy in the background capturing memories for you. You won’t be asked to pose or look into the camera at all, unless you’d like me to take some group portraits or perhaps a few shots of you as newlyweds. I’m confident capturing epic portraits but place most of my emphasis on getting close to the real stuff, the things that matter.
