Cheshire Documentary Wedding Photography - A series.

Hello I'm Lou and I am the founder/photographer at Louise Jacob Photography. I'm a wedding photographer in Cheshire and I've been capturing authenticity at weddings for the past 4 years. I am excited by documenting weddings without any direction from myself as your photographer. I am passionate about delivering images that are un orchestrated and real.  My style is unposed candid documentary, you may also know my style as wedding photojournalism or reportage.  My belief, is that without this realness portrayed in your images, do your photographs have meaning?  And if you don't have any meaning in your pictures then what are you left with?

WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALISM - HOW LOUISE JACOB WILL SHOOT YOUR WEDDING

Unless it’s being munched on! The only cheese at my weddings is the cheeseboard or the block that’s being eaten on the dance floor! Hilarious!  And my kind of fun!  Seriously though, I really hate the thought of my couples and their guests standing around for hours posing for pictures. "Say Cheese" "Smile for the Camera" and such like are words you will never hear at my weddings and you will not be expected to pose. Phew! Any group shots we do will be fun and relaxed and your couple pictures will be super chilled out too.  And to top it off, depending on how many groups you have (I shoot a maximum of 8) I won't keep you away from your guests for more than 30 minutes.  Less Groups = more time with your nearest & dearest!
