Bridal Prep

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 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 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…

Honoured to have the brilliant Ash Davenport of Miki Studios on the site today to tell us how he got this Reportage Award-winning capture from Collection Two. Ash shares great insights into noticing potential for extreme moments, composition, the importance of a pre-wed to build rapport (and thus capture this intimate moment), and much more. Brilliantly, we also have thoughts about the image from the bride herself. A fantastic read!
