Many registrars are often confused when a photographer would like to photograph the 'actual signing' of the register.
They may have an idea fixed in their minds, that the bride would like a posed, set up image, with everyone smiling at the camera,
with the register carefully closed, so that no writing is visible.
Oddly enough, I'm not looking to photograph the book itself.
The register book, and the documents within are almost incidental to the scene.
What I am interested in, are the interactions between people,
the concern, the emotion, the smiles and the happiness.
These things make up the human story, and make an image that describes what is happening.
Hey ho. some people 'get it'. some don't.
