Ah, speeches time! A part of the day that can result in so many different kinds of captures – from laughter to tears; embarrassment to even more embarrassment! Here are some wedding photography speeches tips by our TiR members:
Delighted to have a new ‘This is How’ piece on the site today, with the fab Olly Knight telling us all about how he captured this great speech image. Olly shares so much gold, here, including insights into bonding with his couple (and their family/friends) – and just why this is so important – composition, shooting up close, shooting through the scene, info on his edit (with a before/after comparison), and more…thanks so much, Olly!

Great to have the fab Richard Skins on the site today to talk to us about this superb capture of his. Really insightful and useful tips about getting in close, focusing on emotion, composition, lens choice and more…thanks so much, Richard!
It’s an honour today to have the fantastic Soven Amatya on the site, taking us behind the scenes of his recent Reportage Award. Just the top 2% of submissions were awarded by our Collection One Judges, and Soven managed to bag two of them – an incredible achievement. In what is the 40th of our ‘This is How…’ posts, Soven shares great insights into capturing feelings and relationships, a breakdown of his flash setup, focusing on connections between people, and more…
