The reception drinks were outside in the sunshine and we worked together to take candid shots and organise the group shots. There was some tree cover which we used for the group photographs to avoid uneven light and sunshine in people’s eyes.
At the wedding breakfast we always try and get loads of shots before the food comes out as it’s best not to photograph people as they eat. We often take a break and prepare ourselves for the speeches. When taking pictures during the speeches it can be tricky to capture the right moment. We often use our silent shutter mode to capture multiple shots in quick and succession without it being noisy or districting. One of our cameras the A7sii is also great in low light meaning we often don’t have to use flash.
The final part of the day, the dancing is always great fun but also a challenge as can be over quickly. It’s often a balance of making sure you get a clear shot and also trying a few more creative photographs as well.
