Black and White Wedding Photography with Paul Massey

Black And White Wedding Photography With Paul Massey

“Rich skin tones and deep blacks, great for portrait work”

I feel that black and white is particularly strong for wedding photography. It has a timeless element to it and for me will never go out of fashion. It is a real strength of mine as a photographer and I have always enjoyed working in black and white. In fact my first job in the photography industry was nearly 30 years ago in a black and white darkroom in East London. It was here that I developed my love for photography and in particular black and white work. I would process films for some of the biggest fashion photographers in the world such as Albert Watson and Nick Knight.

I know immediately with some images I shoot that they will work in black and white and there are two styles of processing my work that I really like.

If I am shooting in low light situation such as a church during the ceremony I will make these images very contrasty and grainy. These images do not have a lot of mid tone and the grainy nature of them gives a real documentary feel to the images. I also like this look when I am shooting the first dance or my signature shot of the boys smoking cigars.

The other style I love has really rich skin tones and deep blacks, great for portrait work. When I find an area that has gorgeous light coming through it I know that it is here I will be able to produce stunning portraits for my clients. When this is the case I will position my subjects in the light and just study how the light falls on them. I asses my best position and the best position for them so that I can shoot incredible work for them. These are the portraits that really stand out and for me I feel this is some of the best work I produce.

When looking at a photographer’s work really take a good look at the quality of the black and white work. Is there a full range of tones? Is there pure white and deep black in every image? If the blacks are not deep, rich images can look flat and muddy and have poor impact. This can tell you a lot about a photographers experience and technical knowledge.

About Me

Unique, natural and unobtrusive – That’s how my clients describe my work. How I capture a wedding is by letting those natural moments happen, going with the flow of the day and letting my experience capture those once in a lifetime memories. I’ll never stage or repeat moments or put you in any uncomfortable poses. With my experience and ability to see natural moments unravelling, it allows me to capture those special images unobtrusively and in return makes you  feel comfortable throughout the whole day.

With my style of photography there’s no disappearing for long periods allowing you more time with your guests laughing, joking, drinking, eating and giving you memories that will be captured and relived forever

I’m Chris Snowden and I would love to tell your wedding story.

About Me

Do you prefer natural photos that tell a story rather than lots of unnatural posed shots? Do you hate having your picture taken? Do you want to enjoy your wedding day without being shouted at by a bossy photographer all day? Do you want a photographer who will dress smartly and be polite to your guests? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then we are on the same wavelength. I have been a full-time professional photographer for well-over 25 years and I have been commissioned twice to photograph the Queen inside Buckingham Palace. My background in press photography honed my fast reactions so I take photos that many other photographers miss. My documentary style of photography is often referred to as reportage which will bring out the character of you and your guests and will capture all those loving, touching and downright funny moments that make up a wedding. I really can bring the day back.

Throughout the whole of 2015, I was ranked 2nd out of over 3,500 UK photographers, by Free Index – based purely on client feedback (119 reviews with an average rating of 4.8 out of 5, judged on quality, professionalism and on value for money). To see my current ranking and all my reviews, please go to http://www.freeindex.co.uk/profile(martin-neeves-photography-ltd)_321229.htm To see lots of examples of my work, please view my website. Many couples don’t appreciate the value of great photography until it is too late and they are disappointed with the photos their family friend took of their wedding (which they accepted to save money and they thought would be OK as he/she owned a posh camera), but if you are one of the growing number of discerning couples who do appreciate it, please give me a call.
