Speeches can be a great part of a wedding to photograph. There are so many emotions surrounding the speeches – nerves, laughter, tears. Its not only a great time to photograph the bride and groom, but also all of your guests.
Like the wedding ceremony, during the speeches the photographs are completely natural. The bride and groom and guests are caught up in the moment and have no real concern about where the camera is which means, I can be hidden away in a corner, unobtrusive, and take some of the most relaxed and amusing photographs of the day.
Learning to understand wedding speeches has been a great help to my job. Being able to anticipate when the room will erupt with laughter (or tears) means that I can give you photographs of the best possible moments.
