Real Unstaged Emotional Moments

Reportage Photography; BSC style 📸


This package is perfect for those who don't like old-fashioned posed-style photography or those who prefer just to enjoy the day!


We've all been to one of those weddings where it feels like all you do is wade through a giant list of formal photos, along with a load of awkward posing options that drag on for hours. This is generally no fun for anyone IMO!


The good news is it doesn't have to be that way to document your day 💜


No cheesy poses, no cringe! Just fun, laidback coverage with awesome photos.


Your photographer will be a fly on the wall for the day and capture real moments.


No uncomfortable old-fashioned posed stuff or long boring family photo sessions!


An optional 15-minute couples portrait session is included. We'll take you away for a few relaxed portraits around your venue. With photos taken in a fun relaxed unposed style.


A Recent Documentary Wedding Reel


Here's a photo highlight reel from a recent all-day documentary-only wedding at As You Like It in Newcastle City Centre. Which included a super quick 15-minute couple shoot.


A frequently asked questions with this package... "Is 15 minutes enough to get amazing portraits?" Oh yes! I'll let the photos do the talking 💜

Documentary FAQ


What is Reportage Wedding Photography?

Reportage Photography goes by a few different names, often called Documentary, Candid or Fly on the Wall style. It is all about telling the story of your day in a natural authentic style. Without interfering with proceedings or staging photos.


We thrive on capturing real moments and documenting your big day from start to finish. Skipping formal portraits is also less editing work behind the scenes and therefore we can offer this package at a cheaper rate.


Your photographer is friendly and will blend in, chat and mingle with guests. This is part of the service and is essential to ensure they are at ease with a camera floating around and let their guard down!


Who is it for?

This style is becoming hugely popular with modern laidback couples who just want to enjoy the day and not have to leave their guests to disappear for photos!


I highly recommend it for couples who aren't sure they want a photographer. This option is a perfect compromise. None of the cringe or discomfort.


Also works great for those who'd like a stunning professional set of images to look back on for years to come but who are a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera.


What if you'd like a few couple photos?

We'd recommend getting at least a few shots of the couple. This is optional and lasts about 15 minutes. We'll direct you and capture you together in a subtle and natural way, with no awkward poses!


What if guests want a quick posed shot?

Of course, we are happy to oblige any photo requests from your guests on the day, (so it's not super strict documentary only!) if anyone asks for a posed shot on the day we will happily snap away 📷


Can we do confetti shots?

Hell yes 🎉


Can we do a group shot?

Yes, we can squeeze in one very quick group shot if required. However this totally optional and you can skip if you'd prefer! Please make sure to request this during your pre-wedding meeting.


How many photographers?


Only one photographer is needed, this way we keep a discrete low profile. Our photographer is laidback, fun, and friendly with a canny knack for blending into the background. So you won't notice he is there most of the time. Those make for the best shots!

Feedback on our documentary style

Customer Review

We picked Graeme as our wedding photographer as we wanted a really relaxed, laid-back style of photos to remember the day by and on this Graeme has delivered. It was great to have the option of all the prints in colour and B&W too.

My husband isn't great at having his photo taken and wasn't looking forward to this part of the day but Graeme put us both at ease and we've got some beautiful memories of the day now captured forever.
