You don’t always have to see people’s faces to feel the emotion of an image; touch is an incredibly powerful way of doing this, and something every photographer should keep in mind. Here are some articles specifically relating to touch in wedding photography:
This Is How: ‘Emotional Connections’ by Matteo Carta
An honour to have the brilliant Matteo Carta on the site today, as he tells us all about how he captured this Reportage Award from Collection Six. Capturing moments like this is something we all aspire to, and it’s fantastic to hear Matteo’s story behind this award-winning frame. Over to Matteo…
This Is How: ‘Shit Got Real’ by Peter Geluk
Delighted to have Peter Geluk on the site today, with a really interesting piece about how he captured his recent Reportage Award from Collection Five. Peter’s words really tell us the importance of bonding with our clients; of knowing their backstory before the wedding, so we can be prepared and ready to capture such intimate and emotional moments like this. A brilliant ‘This is How’ piece indeed; thanks Peter!
This is Storytelling: ‘Gaelle & David’ by Philippe Swiggers
It’s an honour to have the fantastic Belgium-based TiR member Philippe Swiggers with us today, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Story Award from Collection Three. Story Awards are given to the very best series of images (15 – 20) from a single wedding, representing world-class storytelling, creativity and consistency – with just the top 4% of entries being awarded in Collection Three, receiving a Story Award is no mean feat! I absolutely love what Philippe talks about in this piece: The power and vital importance of building relationships and rapport with not only the couple, but their family and friends too, in order to truly capture the very essence of the day – a brilliant, brilliant read:

Always an honour to feature a new ‘This is How…’ piece by our This is Reportage members, and today is no exception as the brilliant Shlomi Amiga (Canada) takes us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Award-winning capture. Really great insights into capturing connections between people – and doing so by not only capturing faces or expressions. A brilliant read; thanks Shlomi!
This Is How: ‘Here Comes The Bride’ by Adam Riley
Delighted to feature a brand new ‘This is How…’ piece today, with the fantastic UK-based Adam Riley talking to us about he got this recent Reportage Award from Collection One. Thanks so much, Adam!
