Finding a photographer for your once in a lifetime event can be a daunting, downright scary task. After all, there will be no do-overs for every fleeting, precious moment of the day. Should you get two photographers? Do they consistently generate high quality images? Should you have a shot list ready, or is it better to leave your visuals to chance? Do you have friends who are offering to shoot your ceremony on their brand new iPhones? Are you doing the First Look? Do you have a getaway car? And as to the ceremony itself, should you have a connected, or a disconnected one?
All of the choices you’ll face while planning your special day will help to make the ceremony uniquely reflective of you as a couple, so it is very important to communicate them to your photographer.
Not unlike a writer with a distinctive voice, each photographer will have a unique style, an approach that can impact the overall tone and look of the shoot. It is always a good idea to have them photograph a short portrait or engagement session with you. Your level of comfort during the test session, and the resultant body of work will help you determine a way forward.
At Prime Concept Photography, Ian and Natalia are a husband and wife team whose approach to photography is very simple – every perfect and imperfect moment is seen as a living art fragment.
Ian is an internationally exhibited street photographer whose vibrant, candid approach makes the most of the dynamic movement of his subjects. Natalia is a published (Universal Music, UK) concert photographer whose bold use of light and shadow adds a new dimension to the traditional approach.
They are attracted to photography, partially, for the ease with which it crosses over into the world of art. To catch a glimpse of the art in everyday surroundings, the photographer must remain the observer of the event, rather than the choreographer of it; he must remain on the sidelines, seeing, capturing the interplay of light and shadow, preserving the inner truth of each moment. Black and white medium also holds a special significance to them, as it almost succeeds in conveying an evocative, romantic feel of the decades past, when the summers were milder, the days – longer, the lines – simpler.
Both photographers work within the natural light and color spectrum, preferring to not over-process their work.
