Interview: Aaron Storry
In our first wedding photographer interview of 2016 we chat with East Midlands based wedding photographer Aaron Storry.
How long have you been photographing weddings for and how did you get into it?
The first wedding I photographed was back in 2010, it was for a friend that I went to school with. He had seen some of my portraits and wanted to give me the chance at weddings.
What do you particularly like about photographing weddings?
Weddings are crazy events and I get to see the best in people at their happiest. When the formula beautifully comes together the creative results are profound.
What is your favourite part of the day?
My favourite part of the day changes from wedding to wedding, but I always particularly enjoy the ceremony.
How would you describe your style and approach?
I would describe myself primarily as a documentary wedding photographer but with a creative twist. As much as 95% of my photography documents my couple’s story with the other 5% reserved for creative portraiture and other crazy ideas.
Who, or what inspires you?
My work is largely inspired by photojournalism, film and music, but inspiration can come at any time and in many forms.
What advice would you give to couples looking for a wedding photographer?
Find a photographer that speaks to you through their images.
What tips would you share with couples to help their day go more smoothly?
If you relax and let the day flow naturally this will reflect in your photos. Don’t worry about what has happened and what might happen, be in the moment and enjoy every moment of the day.
If there was one place in the world you would love to capture a wedding where would it be and why?
My dream destination is at the Amalfi Coast in Italy, and during 2016 my wish will come true.
Finally… Whats the best moment you’ve had as a wedding photographer?
The best moment I’ve had as a wedding photographer was documenting a couple who arrived by helicopter. As I sat in the front next to the pilot I remember thinking how lucky I was to have a career that was also my passion.
