I’m just a guy who found art when I needed it most. When I’m not taking or processing the pictures ,I’m mostly thinking about the pictures.
It wasn’t until I needed something to change in my life that I chose photography as my career. It was a huge learning, curve but it just felt so right. It had me doing new things every day and being a part of different peoples stories, and for once, I felt completely alive. Having the fortune of living my passion has made me a much better, stronger person. Something I would never take for granted.
I find it bit strange to write about myself, even if it’s only a few words. As most photographers I prefer my work to do the talking for me. I’m Robert Pugh, a Berkshire wedding photojournalist, with a background in press photojournalism working throughout the UK. My background in press photojournalism makes my wedding photography distinctive with a real story telling style. Natural, unposed reportage wedding photography allows you to get on with enjoying your wedding, in the knowledge your photographer will capture beautiful story telling images.
I love what I’m doing. Being a wedding photographer must be the most incredible and rewarding profession in the world., It’s really important to me that my photographs are the most natural record of the day. I capture everything as it is, focusing on the emotions, the mood, the connection between people. I even want the portraits to be the part of the story, so I encourage every couple to be themselves and act exactly as they feel, and let me worry about the amazing landscape in the background. In my opinion, only photos like these can bring back the best memories in years to come.
Everyone loves a wedding. It’s such a special day, full of amazing emotions. I bet the last wedding you went to was like this as well – laughs, tears of joy, family and friends from all over the world seeing each other for the first time in years. Just beautiful. So, imagine having the privilege to photograph days like this every week. I can honestly say It’s is the best job in the world.
I have photographed over 400 weddings in the UK with the number climbing each month, not to mention the destination weddings I’ve covered.
Traveling is a passion of mine, and I’ve been lucky enough to photograph people and place’s all over the world, and for that I will be forever grateful. My work has been published in various blogs and magazines, and I’m very proud to be a brand ambassador.
