We’ve covered wedding photography quite extensively on the Bob Books blog, from our Ultimate Guide to Wedding Photography to some glimpses behind the scenes. But in the same way that each wedding is unique, each wedding photographer also has his or her own unique vision and approach. It’s for this reason that we love getting insights from seasoned wedding photographers on how they work.
This time, we approached Norwich-based wedding photographer Ellie Gillard, whose images are recognisable for their artistic and photojournalistic style. Gillard says she aims to tell each couple’s story in a natural and heartfelt way. Her work has been published in magazines like Rock n Roll Bride, and she has covered weddings all over the world in a variety of locations, from warehouses and pubs to wilderness and beach weddings. Given her distinctive style and approach to wedding photography, we asked her to tell us a bit about how she goes about creating images that are as unique as the couples she works with.
