The wedding ceremony is obviously one of the most important parts of the day to capture (that’s why we’re all here, after all!), and it’s an element that can be covered in a multitude of different ways. Here are some wedding photography ceremony tips and techniques by our TiR photographers:
Honoured to have the fantastic Shaunte’ Dittmar with us today (who was one of our judges for Collection Four), as she explains all about her thought process and how she captured this striking image. Great insights on composition, the benefits of having a second shooter, the important of making a connection with her couple, editing and more…thanks so much, Shaunte’!
Fantastic to have James White with us today, as he takes us behind the scenes of his Reportage Award-winning capture from back in Collection Five. Really great insights into shooting through the scene, observation, getting up close, capturing emotion, and a great run-down on his edit, too. Thanks so much, James!
Delighted to have the fantastic Portugal-based duo Menino Conhece Menina on the site today to tell us how they captured this brilliant moment that won a Reportage Award back in Collection Four. I really love this piece; great tips and sentiments about going with the flow, curiosity as a wedding photographer’s great tool, composition and more. One of my favourite quotes, too: “If nothing is going on where I am, that means I’m in the wrong place…”. A brilliant piece, thanks so much, both!
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…
Thrilled to have the fab Mexico-based This is Reportage member Chio Garcia on the site today, to tell us all about this emotional capture of hers. Chio talks not only about how she got this image, but also her many ‘whys’ about why she documents weddings – thoughts and sentiments which I know many wedding photographers throughout the world will wholeheartedly agree with. Thanks so much, Chio!
