The difference between Documentary Wedding Photography and “Spray and Pray”.

  I put this picture on a forum for Photographers the other day and one of my colleagues, who’s work I admire, made a comment that made me think. There are people who think that our way of working is about grabbing images, some even think that it’s the same as candid photography and that we “snap”…
