Documentary photography style
There are many ways which describe my photographic style. A couple of terms I use are documentary wedding photography and wedding reportage photography. However way we like to describe this genre the best way I can explain is through couples I’ve worked with. They have wanted images which are simply unorchestrated and not posed. Images that reflect a sincere, true record of their special day without the intervention of the wedding photographer. In addition they want to relax and enjoy themselves the day they get married.
The above image is of a bride and her sister right before the wedding ceremony. It is a perfect and a precious moment for them both. Their look says it all! When put into context from a photography perspective, when you allow people to be themselves with candour these types of charming moments can happen naturally. This simply may never have been captured had I intervened and asked them both to smile and pose.
The photographic images I curate have an intrinsic thread which flows through all of my wedding photography and my editing style. Whether my images are black and white or in colour, the heart of my editing style remains the same. I love to produce images that have contrast. This is because I believe it goes hand in hand with documentary photography and particularly gives my images a timeless feel.
I prefer to use natural light and throughout a wedding day I will predominantly shoot this way. There is the odd time I may need to use flash and I like to keep it to a minimum. For instance the first dance is a time when I may use my flash.
Clients reviews for North Wales Wedding Photographer Maurice Roberts
We asked a lot of Maurice as we had such a big event with around 180 people and Maurice didn’t miss a moment! His documentary style of photography captured the magic as it happened and even gave us a few pleasant surprises of things we had missed.
Thanks Maurice – you did a great job ~ John and Lexi xxx

The image above is of a candid, happy moment of the groom along with his father and groomsmen having an enjoyable moment in the sunshine just before the wedding ceremony. It’s this type of carefree, relaxed moment I especially love to capture in an unorchestrated manner. I’m not imposing on their moment, I wouldn’t want to spoil it by intervening and asking for a posed image.

Most of all and most importantly, I want you to enjoy yourselves on your wedding day. For that reason I will be largely unnoticed and as much as possible I will not intrude on your day. In contrast to how some photographers work I will never ask you to pose. Furthermore I will never ask for a cheesy smile.
