A wedding photographer in action!

As a wedding photographer you learn to move discreetly and quietly – a friend of mine from the States describes herself as a ninja – and blend into the wedding surroundings. Being discreet isn’t about standing twenty feet away with a long lens, as more people will notice you doing that than just moving around with the guests, camera in hand. I know that I manage to work very discreetly – a client once told me they barely noticed me on the day, although they were fairly certain I was actually there – but I’ve always wondered what I look like in action. Well, now I know!

There were several guests I knew at my recent Devon wedding, as the bride and groom are good friends of mine. As a result I finally have a picture of myself in action…

And here’s the shot that I took at almost exactly the same moment…

I’m not sure I qualify to be a ninja, but it is interesting to see myself at work.
