Wedding Rookie Seeks Experience

Im just starting out in wedding photography, and so far have covered one wedding reception (

I really like the informal, natural style of Annabel Williams, Tamara Peel, and Jeff Ascough.

I was wondering if there are any wedding photographers in the Cambridge area that shoot in a similar style that could offer my some advice, and possibly allow my to attend a wedding with them as a second photographer.

Any advice appreciated !

Many thanks

Hi Pali,

I asked the very same question last year when I was starting out. Basically, you have to see it from the official photographer's point of view in that he would be training potential competition.
I would very much doubt you would get an offer here, but my advice, and its the same advice I took last year, is to find out when and where weddings are taking place and just go and see what the photographer does (unobtrusively of course!) and maybe take some pictures using a telephoto yourself.

All the very best,
