Documentary photography is being a candid photographer and capturing moments in the day whilst mingling in the background without anyone knowing you are actually "official". It creates an authentic record of the day, and people tend to be more relaxed if they think that you're just there to enjoy the day like them. It could be for events, festivals, weddings or parties.
People are a lot more relaxed and not so intimidated if they think you're just a guest. You would be surprised how many people have said to me " i don't like having my photograph taken"..
This style of photography could be used in conjunction with another more traditional photographer, or as a stand alone documentary photographer. I am relaxed and informal, approachable and friendly and able to blend into the background. This style of photography is not for everyone, so if you are unsure as to my style and what I can bring to your day, then please talk to me.
I am based in Whitley Bay in North Tyneside, but happy to travel. My rates do not include travel expenses.
We require a 33% non-refundable deposit to secure the day, then work on a three part payment system. The second 33% due 3 months prior to the event and the final 33% due 3 weeks before the event.

THREE PART PAYMENT
We understand that events can be quite expensive, so we work with a Three Part Payment plan. This payment plan we feel is fair to both you and ourselves. This basically means we take a one third payment at time of booking to confirm our services. This first payment is non-refundable. The second payment is due three months before the event. The third payment is due three weeks before the wedding. Full payment must be received prior to the day of the wedding. If you are to cancel for whatever reason, you will loose the first payment. All other monies will be refunded in full.
