Markus Morawetz takes every wedding photography job personally. A master of candidly capturing intimate moments, he allows himself to get caught up in the emotion of each wedding, building a deep connection with his subjects. He calls his signature brand of wedding photography "soulful storytelling", aiming to encapsulate raw emotion in each image so that people viewing his photographs in years to come will understand how it felt to be there on the day.
Austrian photographer Markus is a member of the worldwide Fearless Photographers collective, and a Canon Ambassador. His work stands out for its authenticity and for his use of creamy bokeh around the subject to pick out what really matters. He describes photographing weddings as "reportage of true moments that play back like a beautiful movie" and likens the experience to adventure photography, embracing unpredictability but being prepared to capture every exciting moment.
What's more, Markus documents each wedding while making himself as invisible as possible. "I don't want to distract anyone, so I try to be as stealthy as a ninja," he says. Here he explains what weddings mean to him, how he approaches each job, and why choosing the right kit is extremely important for getting candid wedding photographs.
