Alan Law Photography - Winner of Best Reportage Wedding Photographer in Cornwall & Devon / Westcountry Wedding Awards 2013. We asked Alan a few questions and let his photography talk for itself.
How did you get started?
I imagine in a quite similar way that lots of other wedding photographers get going, by bringing my camera along to a friend’s wedding, and them being so thrilled with the results! I already knew that I loved capturing people – moments and emotions – and I realised that weddings were almost the epitome of that: emotion central. I just love capturing it all.
What makes you unique from other photographers out there?
I think every photographer is unique, as they all bring their own vision, their own way of seeing and capturing the events before them. I don’t interfere in the slightest – no poses, no ‘look at the camera’ – and that approach, coupled with what I hope is an artistic and creative flair to my images (oh boy, I hate talking about myself like that!) makes my style of wedding photography my own, I guess.
Why do you love what you do?
It’s all about the people for me. Although I record the details of weddings, of course, they’re just no way near as important as the people, as all the different moments, exchanges, reactions and emotions that play out before my eyes and lens. That, for me, is why I love doing what I do – capturing hundreds of moments on one of the most special day of my clients’ lives.
Finally, what are your goals for the future?
To constantly improve – photography is a never-ending learning cycle, which I love – and continue to make each and every one of my couples delighted with their images.
