OUR STYLE AND APPROACH

Our approach and style is what many call reportage or documentary wedding photography. This means that our photographs will tell the story of the day, in an unscripted and honest way. We were recently added to the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) and this was in large part due to our photojournalism style.

Every wedding photographer has a different approach, from the photographer who aims for the big posed and staged shots, traditional wedding photography (Ceremony, Group Photos), to ourselves who love nothing more than to capture the day like a story, from the moment we turn up to the moment we leave.

We believe that your wedding photography shouldn’t be stage managed, you should be yourself and enjoy your day. You will see us constantly photographing the little details, people talking and laughing to even mingling on the dance floor. You may see us on our knees or even laying down to try and capture a unique perspective of a moment. We become totally immersed yet unobtrusive on the day, and we think that is an important part of our style. It’s the couples big day and it’s our job to capture the fun and love in an honest way.

“I hired O’Hara Photography to photograph my wedding day. I cannot tell you how happy I am with my decision to hire Brendan as our wedding photographer. During the day he was amazing, he was really relaxed and happy to go along with any requests we had. It was a perfect fit for us, we told him before the wedding that we didn’t want many posed shots, we wanted to enjoy the day and for him to document for real moments as they came along. Brendan is a really nice guy and he got along great with all our guests. Me and my husband couldn’t have been happier with how it all went on the day. In a very short amount of time we got our photos back and we were amazed by how much he had managed to document and we couldn’t be happier with how great the photos are. I absolutely recommend O’Hara Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.” – Kate Bolton, Facebook Review

As a UK & Yorkshire Wedding Photographer we’ve photographed so many beautiful weddings, so many beautiful people and it’s the greatest compliment when the couple tell us they are amazed at the moments we’ve captured as they didn’t even know we were there.
