MARCUS RICE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
I'm Marcus, a wedding photographer based in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, I cover the UK and abroad.
From a young age through to college, I was greatly influenced by fine art, Photography wasn't introduced to me until my final year of college when my tutor handed me a DSLR and had me make a project on street photography, I can honestly say my camera hasn't left my side since that day.
Originally photography was a good hobby of mine and it never really dawned on me I could make a living from it. I enjoyed sharing my gift and in the first year, I photographed countless portrait sessions. I learnt some specific techniques, consisting of the technical element of photography as well as the physiological part which gave me the framework to become the photographer I am today. The following year as I progressed and with the help of a talented mentor I was offered the chance to photograph a wedding. I can't put it into words the buzz I had that day. I had the chance to experience the vibe and see the emotions first hand, And to present the couple with the finished photos they will cherish for the rest of there life was such a great feeling.
My style of wedding photography is photojournalism, Its a mix of candid photography and storytelling. A smaller part of my wedding photography is contemporary portraiture this usually takes a maximum of 20 minutes in which I take the bride and groom away for some private photos, however, I Taylor this for each couple and I take on request only.
I approach a wedding with patience and observation, to capture the best out of people throughout the day. I like to stay back slightly capturing a perfectly natural, non-posed, candid shot. I've found My non-intrusive approach has resulted in the most immersive photos in which you can look at over and over again and still feel like your back at your wedding day.
