Documentary wedding photography in Sheffield and South Yorkshire

Ufniak Photography

Hi, I’m Michal. I’m a professional Sheffield wedding photographer. I specialize in what is often described as documentary and natural wedding photography aiming to capture the day as it happens without too much fuss.

My approach to wedding photography

I’d like to think my approach can be seen as documentary, natural and relaxed without too much unnecessary posing.

I take images as the day unfolds blending in as one of your guests documenting you and your family and friends having the best time of their lives. My goal is to create authentic and comprehensive stories full of emotions starting from your morning preparations till the late night party.

I combine the use of light documentary wedding photography with editorial reportage style professionally lit images, telling your wedding story in a unique and heartfelt manner.

Your own wedding will be one of those memories you will remember for the rest of your lives. You will want to remember the laughter, the tears and all the amazing moments, not necessarily having to pose most of the time.

Wedding photography to put you at ease

From the moments of getting ready and putting your dress on, to your first dance, late night party and the magical sparkler exit, you and your fiancé want to feel relaxed. Your wedding photographer should not take this feeling away from you, quite the opposite, they are there to make sure that in front of the camera you are being yourself. This is the key to giving you these amazing pictures you have been dreaming about when planning this day.

I aim to provide an experience when you and your fiancé will feel comfortable and relaxed in front of my camera. I don’t believe in too much posing and I, like many of my couples, don’t like to have my photos taken. It’s perfectly normal. I keep the portrait sessions to a minimum and I will still give you those epic wedding photos without making it awkward.
