Unobtrusive, Unposed, Unique. Documentary wedding photography in Scotland by Simon Grosset
I have been a documentary photographer all my life. I have worked for the Independent and Daily Telegraph Newspapers, and had my pictures published in every national newspaper and many magazines. My pictures have a narrative, either on their own, or as a spread of photos. I know about story-telling with photographs. I have worked in real life situations photographing real people, capturing authentic moments in history.
My wedding photography is no different from my previous work. I believe that reality has it’s own beauty and art. I work in a very low key fashion with the minimum of fuss. I observe rather than organise, producing a set of wedding photographs that are neither staged nor fussy, but that capture the real atmosphere of your day in a candid and honest way.

Documentary Wedding Photography
Your wedding photographs will provide the lasting memories of your day. When you look through them in the years to come you’ll want to remember how you felt as well as how you looked. You’ll want to remember the story of the whole day, and all its emotions and special moments.
I will record your day, not direct it. My observing eye will capture the reality of your day, the moments you’ll recall in the future. Couples hire me because they trust me to catch those knowing expressions, the spontaneous moments, the look and body language of love. And of course, the joy on the faces of your guests, family and friends.
Of course, some time has to be spent photographing the family group shots that are the pre-requisite of any wedding, but I like to keep these to a minimum, and also ask the ushers to organise a group photo of everyone.
It's your wedding day, and I am there to document all of the emotion, the expressions, the laughter and the tears, for history. I do not re-organise your day around my agenda.
