To ‘follow your intuition’ – something that we hear a lot about in life, and it’s no different for us, as wedding photographers: Listening to our ‘inner voice’, being guided by our intuition that ‘something good’ may happen here…it’s vital. Here are some guides by our TiR members exploring this:

Thrilled to bring you a brand new ‘This is How’ piece today, and it’s a double-header, as the fab Patrick Mateer reveals how he captured two Reportage Awards from the same wedding.
This is a really in-depth piece – thanks so much Patrick! – with lots of insights into things such as reportage details, colour, composition, the power of cropping, contrast, capturing the dancefloor, the first dance, shooting close, visual ‘call backs’, observation, context, and more….
