A lot of photographers’ favourite part of the day to capture, bridal prep can contain the entire gamut of emotion – from nerves, to extreme laughter, tears and excitement, to incredibly quiet and reflective; it’s all there in bridal prep. Here are pieces by our members that specifically offer bridal prep tips and techniques:
This is Storytelling: ‘Priyal and Dan’ by Ash Davenport
We think it’s absolutely amazing when our members share their behind-the-scenes tips and advice about how they captured certain images – and it’s brilliant when they share all about their Story Awards too! Today, the fantastic Ash Davenport is taking us back to one of his Story Awards from Collection Ten, including thoughts on his overall approach, as well as specific details about how he captured certain images from the Award-winning Story. Including tips on capturing emotion, patience, lens choice, layers, storytelling, colour, composition, and more, this is an in-depth and incredibly insightful read – thanks so much, Ash!
This Is How: ‘Mother, Daughter and Grandmother’ by Simone Miglietta
Really great to have Simone Miglietta on the site today, telling us all about how he captured this emotional image, which earned him a Reportage Award back in Collection Six. Really interesting to hear his thoughts about empathy, respect, composition, why he edited it in black and white, and more…thanks a lot, Simone!
This Is How: ‘All Hands On Dress’ by Andy Griffiths
Delighted to have Andy Griffiths on the site today, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Award from Collection Seven.

This Is How: ‘Secret Moment’ by Martin Hecht
Super to have Martin Hecht with us today, as he takes us behind the scenes of this fab bridal prep capture. Really interesting to hear how his close bond with the bride and her family enabled him to get the shot, how the composition came about, and more…thanks, Martin!
This is Storytelling: ‘Nele & Michael’ by Sanne De Block
We’re absolutely delighted to have the brilliant Belgium-based TiR member Sanne De Block on the site today, taking us behind the scenes of her recent Story Award – but not only does Sanne talk in depth about that, she also lets us know how she won a Reportage Award which came from the same wedding; double-documentary goodness! We can’t recommend this post enough, with fantastic insights into working in wet conditions (so wet that one of her cameras stopped working properly – eek! – and how she dealt with the problem), practical advice on how to capture in-between moments, lens and flash info, and much more…
