WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BIRMINGHAM


NATURAL // UNPOSED // STORYTELLING


Hi, I’m Clive Blair an award-wining wedding photographer in Birmingham, currently ranked Top 3 Wedding Photographer West Midlands (WPJA) and a proud member of the exclusive West Midlands Selective.

As a centrally placed wedding photographer Birmingham I’ve been privileged to photograph weddings all over the UK and abroad. I’ve worked in places like Ireland, Jamaica and Mexico, and look forward to adding your event location to my growing list.

You’ll no doubt be researching many wedding photographers, so what makes me different? I’m not just a wedding photographer, but more of a photographer who happens to be at a wedding.

To help you relax and enjoy your day, my shooting style focuses on photographing people and their interactions with each other. The love and romance between you both. The natural unguarded moments that happen with your family and friends. The story-telling frames that stand the test of time.

I’ve been a Birmingham wedding photographer for many years, which means I know so many hate posing for photos. So I work by the motto: “Shoot as guest”. This means capturing the spirit of what it was like to be at a wedding as a guest, while accurately telling the story for those who weren’t there. No fussing around, faffing about or hanging around for endless posed photos. So I aim to answer questions with my images like: What was the atmosphere and weather like? During the set staged pieces like the exchange of the vows, was another story unfolding behind in the audience, like the mother of the bride wiping away a tear? What was the story behind grandmother sharing a joke and bursting out in laughter with her grandson?

MY APPROACH

Some people use various buzz words to describe my style and approach to weddings, such as reportage, documentary, photojournalism, unposed, natural etc.

Call it what you like (I tend to favour documentary wedding photographer) but simply put: My heart lies in watching people and telling their story without interfering or making them aware of my camera.

If you want to relax, be yourself and show show your personality, that can often be hidden when asked to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s chat further. Although I’m a wedding photographer Birmingham based, I’d love to document your wedding whether it’s in the UK or abroad.
