Outdoor wedding photographer slogan
« on: February 08, 2017, 05:55:02 AM »
Hi!
First of apologize for my writing mistakes.
I am David Asensio, wedding photographer in Spain, and I want to ask you for some help in englsh linguistic, in concret for an slogan for my work.
In my work I focus on STORYTELLING through INTIMATE and ADVENTUROUS  pics and those three concepts are which I'm trying to concentrate and any kind of slogan in english.
Right now I'm thinking on "DOCUMENTING STORIES OF LIFE" but there are some little details that I can't control in english:
"Documenting Stories" I think is working, but I don't know if "Stories of Life" is too candid or too sweet meaning, or if it have any relation with medical services or, ortherway, if it has meaning closer to "live the life" or "adventurous life" concepts.
What to you think, can give please me any advice??

"DOCUMENTING STORIES OF LIFE" sounds a little formal to me. It's acceptable, but it reminds me of something like "the cycle of life" from the movie The Lion King.

The more casual way to say this would be "documenting life stories".

But if you want the more formal way, that's acceptable too. Maybe you want it to sound very formal because it's for weddings?

Thanks Daniel
I'm working in weddings but running away from the classical photography styles, so I wish it doesn't sound like a formal sentence but more adventurer (not using adventurer word, thats why I'm searching other like life).

Why not "documenting life adventures" then? Or slightly more formal (but not in a bad way) "Documenting the adventures in life". (Of course I haven't checked if any of these are already used by other companies.)

Do you believe "Documenting the adventures in life" is better than "documenting life stories" or "documenting stories of life"?

You seem to like the word "adventures", so why not use it? But I think any of these could be OK.

Document and Story should be in the sentence.
I'm searching other word than adventure because when spanish people translate it can get a infidelity sense. The perfect meaning would be "Documenting Stories of people who live the life" but it's too long. I need to resume concepts like "live the life" "life authentic" or "live folk" in a word and I don't know if Life is the correct word for that.
