Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most important life occasions that you’ll organize, so choosing the right people to help you achieve this is vital. We caught up with Leicester based photographer, Scott Choucino, to discuss his experience of capturing those special moments.
“Shooting weddings is one of my favourite parts of being a photographer”, says Scott as he begins to talk about the successful business he has established. “I love the theatre of it all; capturing the big moments in all of their glory, as well as the smaller ones.”
“Wedding photography should ultimately show one thing and that’s the love that has brought the happy couple together, along with the support of their family and friends. I love being able to deliver images that the couple had not even imagined.”
The work starts before the wedding day of course as Scott always ensures he has meetings with the couple to discuss the exact style they’re looking for, as well as any particular requirements they might have for ‘must capture shots’. “The wedding day is a very busy day for everyone involved. The more we can get planned ahead of the big day the better. I want the couple to be at ease, knowing that everything is in hand without them worrying that I might not capture some of the specific shots they have asked for. My assistant and I will have all of that under control so that they can relax and enjoy their day.”
Scott’s photography is unobtrusive, confident and creative with much of his work drawing from his experience shooting bands and musicians. “I’d say my main style inspiration is drawn from the 1970s and the iconic Vogue magazine”, Scott states whilst showing us some of his portfolio. Looking through I realize that he’s no stranger to famous faces having already photographed the likes of Kasabian, By The Rivers, Wolf Alice, The Charlatans and The Vaccines to name just a few.
Scott’s natural documentary work is astounding throughout his portfolio, however he also specializes in elaborate portrait shoots. These can be a wonderful addition to your wedding album and set Scott’s work apart from many other wedding photographers.
Scott is based in Leicester with a studio on London Road, but has travelled the UK and abroad to photograph weddings. “Yes, it’s great going to new places, each wedding venue is different. I’m being flown out to Sicily in September to photograph a wedding so I’m certainly looking forward to that.”
“I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of some very special wedding days and I feel honoured that so many couples have chosen me to photograph this for them! Nothing is better for a wedding photographer than being able to capture special memories for people.”
