Beautiful Photography from Mike Riley
I tell stories with pictures. I am a documentary wedding photographer. I specialize in capturing candid observed images in a discreet and unobtrusive way to curate the memories and tell the story of your wedding.
My aim is to go un noticed by your guests as far as possible, I will observe and document the emotion, the interaction, the small moments that you miss and the people just being people without intruding or instructing. This is your wedding day, not a fashion shoot or a portfolio feature for me.
Long ago I escaped from the corporate world of live events and corporate communications and became a commercial photographer. I draw my inspiration from the world around us, from cinema, from music, from books and from the all too short history of photography itself. I tend not to look too closely at what other wedding photographers produce though. Consequently I think my images are different, hopefully you will too.
I’m based in Devon but more than happy to travel anywhere to document your wedding day.
This is your day, your story.
I will follow it , recording it as the day unfolds and creating a narrative that you can look back on over the years to come.
It isn’t a fashion shoot, there are no rules as to what you have to do and no one to tell you otherwise, least of all me. I won’t interfere, I won’t get in the way, I won’t take you away from your guests. I will observe, and document and then afterwards I’ll show you the things you may have missed, the small moments between the big emotions, the laughter between friends, the funny faces and the tears and smiles. This is your story.
I work in a discreet, unobtrusive way without instructing and without interfering. The images I create are candid storytelling images aimed at capturing the small moments as well as the large, the big emotions as well as the small ones. I want your guests to see me as just another guest which lets me get close to them and document their emotions, joy and laughter so I can tell the story of your wedding day in pictures.
The opportunity to document people being people, the opportunity to record people at their best.
Find someone whose work resonates with you, then speak to them and decide whether you like them as an individual and whether you would feel comfortable in their company.
Happy to travel wherever required
