BIRMINGHAM DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Welcome to The Last of the Light - Wedding Photography by Darren Gair

Having a connection with your wedding photographer is so important.  One of the biggest complements i am paid by my couples is how at ease they have felt throughout their wedding day.  For my style of documentary wedding photography, this is key.  So, to give you a little about me and the way i work, here goes.

My name is Darren and I live with my wife Clare, who I unfortunately gave a rhyming surname to as a wedding gift. We have 2 children; Amaya, who was named after a beach close to where we got married in Sri Lanka and Albie, who was named after my late Grandad.

Based in the West Midlands, I shoot weddings right across the UK and beyond.  Every wedding is unique and that’s why I bring no preconceptions to wedding venues others have been to before. It’s not about static objects, but the people and their emotions that make your day special, so capturing these moments are what my work is all about.

I have always been a people’s person, people fascinate me.  The way they behave and respond with one another, I guess that’s why I make a good wedding photographer, I consider myself an observer. And as with all great observers, it’s very important to blend in and go unnoticed so that the story can naturally unfold.  That’s why my style of contemporary, romantic wedding photography stands out.   It’s unobtrusive, honest and truly documents your day through your guests eyes.

I would love to hear more about your wedding plans, so why not drop me a message on my contact page.
