Today we catch up with Aaron of Storry Photography, a Northamptonshire based wedding photographer in our interview series.
How long have you been photographing weddings for and how did you get into it?
We’ve been shooting weddings for 6 years professionally, and a few years before that part time. Our first ever job was for an old school friend, he was so impressed that we got referred to other couples.
What do you particularly like about photographing weddings
We love weddings; the emotion, tears and laughter on the day allows us to capture people at their absolute best. We feel honoured to be asked to shoot a wedding, its humbling to know that our clients love our work and trust us to deliver pictures for one of the most important day of their lives.
How would you describe your style and approach?
We have specialised in Documentary (Reportage) photography. Using available light and working quickly we shoot and record an honest account of the day.
What advice would you give to couples looking for a wedding photographer?
It’s important to have a good rapport with the photographer, after all you’ll be sharing some intimate family moments with them. You also get what you pay for, this is especially true with Wedding Photography. I get numerous calls from Brides who went cheap but want to know if their pictures can be edited to make them look more ‘professional’. A newly married couple should have no regrets about their photographer.
What tips would you share with couples to help their day go more smoothly?
Relax, you’ve been planning for months. When the day comes sit back and allow things to happen around you. Most importantly enjoy your special day, it goes quickly!
Finally… Whats the best moment you’ve had as a wedding photographer?
Its always an honour to be mentioned in the Grooms speech, but I think the defining moment would have to be shooting my best friends wedding (I was also the Best Man). Performing both roles was exciting and challenging!
