Documentary Wedding Photography



Wedding Photographer

6 years experience

You can't fake a real smile.

Learn why documentary wedding photography is important:

With Shutter, there’s no need to strike a pose all the time. You can leave the posing to the statues. Just be yourselves, and our wedding photographer will be there to capture the real magic. Don’t worry about fake smiles all day; we’ll capture the genuine laughter and joy, and it will shine through.

There’s plenty of natural happiness to capture, so there’s no need for constant posing.

Guests can relax knowing they won’t be modelling all day, which can be exhausting. Plus, focusing on fake smiles leaves little room for genuine ones, resulting in a wedding that feels staged and insincere. 

Our approach rejects this. We offer true documentary wedding photography—authentic, timeless, and revolutionary. It breaks away from industry norms and will be the only thing that makes sense once everything is said and done.

The documentary wedding photography style does not go unnoticed.

I found them online when Nicu reached out after I posted an add looking for a wedding photographer he was an absolute pleasure to deal with leading up to the wedding and a wonderful photographer on the day! Not only was his photos amazing he was very nice and easy going which suited us to a T! He also did an excellent wedding video for us couldn’t be happier with the end results all my guests complimented how great he was on the day and asked how I found him! I believe he’s focusing more on videotoghaphy now but if you’re looking for a sign this is it! Get in contact with him for sure! Pricing was absolutely great also with payment plans which are super easy to deal with ☺️ would recommend to anyone looking!

Nicu who captured our wedding day did such a great job! Our family gathered around last night and watched the video together. WE LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!! We woke up this morning and watched it again and again. Just WOW!!! We can't thank Nicu. Not only for your beautiful talents as a videographer and a photographer, but for your kind and cheerful heart you brought to the wedding. Thank you for capturing the best night of our lives. We are seriously speechless and forever grateful for your hard work. We are also so glad that you had so much fun. We will definitely hire you for EVERY family event now haha. Although he was not supposed to take photos at the preparation time prior to the ceremony, he took the initiative to do so anyway and it is very much appreciated. Again.. WOW! Keep blessing families with your wonderful work. 100000/10!!
