Why I Am Not the Best Wedding Photographer in Bath

Hello, I’m Rose from Rose Dedman Photography. If you’ve stumbled upon this post, you might be on the lookout for a wedding photographer in Bath. You might be looking for the best wedding photographer. But let me tell you a secret: I am not the best wedding photographer in Bath. And that’s perfectly okay. Here’s why I might not be the best for everyone, but I might just be the perfect photographer for you.

The Illusion of “Best”

In a city as picturesque as Bath, filled with talented photographers, the concept of “best” is incredibly subjective. Every couple is unique, and so are their weddings. What works for one couple might not work for another. The truth is, the best wedding photographer for you is the one whose style and approach resonate with your vision for your special day.

My Approach: Documentary Wedding Photography

At Rose Dedman Photography, I specialize in documentary wedding photography. This means I focus on capturing the natural, candid moments of your wedding day as they unfold, rather than orchestrating posed shots. My aim is to tell the true story of your wedding, capturing the genuine emotions and interactions that make your day unique.

Why Choose Documentary Wedding Photography?

  1. Natural and Authentic: If you love the idea of reliving your wedding day through genuine moments rather than staged scenes, documentary photography might be the perfect fit for you. I believe that the best photos are the ones where you’re being yourself, surrounded by your loved ones, without the pressure of posing for hours.
  2. Less Stress, More Fun: Weddings can be stressful enough without adding a lengthy photo shoot to your schedule. My approach allows you to enjoy your day without interruption. You can spend more time with your guests, laugh, cry, dance, and be in the moment while I quietly capture it all.
  3. True Reflection of Your Day: Every wedding is a tapestry of unique moments—your father’s tears during the ceremony, the flower girl’s shy smile, the joyful laughter shared with friends. These are the moments that tell the story of your day, and these are the moments I strive to capture.

Why I Might Not Be the Best for Everyone

While my documentary style suits many couples, it may not be for everyone. If you prefer highly stylized, posed portraits or elaborate photo setups, there are many talented photographers in Bath who specialize in that. And that’s wonderful! Your wedding photos should reflect your personal style and preferences.

Why I Might Be the Best for You

However, if the idea of a relaxed, unobtrusive photographer who captures the essence of your wedding day appeals to you, then we might be a perfect match. I believe that your wedding day should be about you, your partner, and your loved ones—not about spending hours posing for the perfect shot.

A Personal Touch

I take the time to get to know my couples before the big day. Understanding your story, your personalities, and what matters most to you helps me capture your wedding in a way that feels personal and meaningful.

Crafting Memories

At the end of the day, my goal is to provide you with a collection of images that bring back the emotions of your wedding day every time you look at them. Photos that you’ll treasure for years to come, not because they are perfectly posed, but because they are perfectly you.
