Wedding Photographer Cheshire, United Kingdom. Mike & Tom Wedding Photography shares a wedding photography technique.
We are firm believers that your wedding, whether located perilously on the side of a Scottish cliff or in the middle of an Indian jungle is very much a collaborative project between yourselves, your guests and the wedding photographers you have chosen to document your special day. For us, the best images are captured when there is a strong understanding of styles and approach. A collaboration of ideas ensures your moments are captured the way you want them to be captured.
This is a simple case of the best man giving a speech discussing a rather upsetting topic. We love photographing the speeches as it always leads to emotions like this but it is very rarely the best man that shows off his true feelings. This image really doesn't give the speech justice as pretty much everyone at the wedding was emotionally moved. We were just photographing the speeches as normal and only took 1 burst of this particular moment simply because the speeches seemed so personal that it didn't feel right to be snapping away. We are very lucky that the shot came out so well. Pretty much straight on, cropped to focus purely on his emotions. We felt that it didn't really require a context behind the image, the emotion on show was powerful enough so focused purely on capturing the best man during this moment.
We shot shot this wedding photo at the Millennium Gallery Sheffield using a Canon 6D, 135mm f2.0 using evaluative metering. It was perfect light we hardly did anything in post other than a tiny bit of cropping, sharpening, raising of highlights and shadows. We added a little bit of grain into the image to give it a little more depth. Nothing major.
We really like the shot, its probably one of our favourites from the year but as mentioned before. We're not quite sure if the photos actually does the moment/speech justice.
