Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad
Specialising in creative documentary wedding photography and wedding photojournalism
Hi, I’m Robin, a professional Dorset wedding photographer, based in Wimborne
Photography is why I exist, it is a way of life, and what defines me. It is all I have ever dreamed of doing. I am proud to call myself a craftsman with a camera, and documenting people’s life stories is a real privilege. When not at work as a photographer, I always have my camera with me, I could never be without one!
The key for me is using beautiful available and natural light, and timing the moment perfectly when composition, light and emotion combine in perfect harmony – this is the the key to documentary wedding photography – also known as reportage wedding photography, or wedding photojournalism. I am a perfectionist, and whatever I photograph, either a wedding, a lifestyle shoot, food photography or a landscape, everything has to be perfect. If you would like to find out more about my style please browse through my portfolio, or find out a little more about how I work, and the wedding photography journey here.
Whilst I live in Dorset, it doesn’t matter where you are, I will travel anywhere to work with people who love my style of photography.
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is essential, ensuring you connect with the style, so you know you will love the photographs. Photography is an investment, one which will be passed down through the generations. A camera is a tool, it is the photographer behind it that creates the magic. For me, it is absolutely essential to get to know you as a couple so that I can bring out the best in you. This is why all of my wedding coverage includes a complimentary engagement shoot, the moment to get creative and allow your personalities to shine, your wedding day photographs will be so much better for it.
When I photograph a wedding, all day coverage means just that, from dawn to midnight if required. It is your day, the story doesn’t finish at the first dance, and I believe your photo story shouldn’t either. I photograph quietly, though observation, not orchestration. We spend time getting to know each other beforehand, so on the day you will forget I am even there, and can concentrate on enjoying the day, safe in the knowledge your story is being captured beautifully.
