Great documentary wedding photography is all about watching and observing – you can’t just whack your cameras in burst mode and machine-gun it all day. Here are some ‘This is How’ pieces talking about how observation was vital in order to get their images:
‘This is How’ is back…! After some time off, I’m thrilled to be bringing back this regular feature, where our members share exactly how they ‘got the shot’. Kicking off the renaissance today, we have the brilliant Kristof Claeys, telling us exactly how he captured this Reportage Award of his. Kristof was ranked 11th in the World here on TiR for 2020, and 16th in the World over on our sister-site for documentary family photography, This is Reportage: Family. I also had the pleasure of interviewing him on our Podcast.
Kristof really takes us on an in-depth dive into his thought process, equipment used, inspirations and more… a really fantastic read. Thanks so much, Kristof!
So happy to be back again with another fantastic ‘This is How’ piece! Today, the brilliant Bogdan Chircan tell us exactly how he captured this recent Reportage Award of his:

So great to have James Correia on the site today, telling us all about how he captured this emotional image which so deservedly won him a Reportage Award back in Collection Six. This is an exhaustive and incredibly insightful piece, with James dishing out some unbelievably great nuggets of advice – definitely a must-read!
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.
