The best man’s speech

Best man's speech at wedding

For a wedding photographer, the speeches are amongst the most challenging part of the wedding day to make visually interesting. After all, it’s just a bunch of people talking. But within the limited range of possibilities that provides, there are still moments. There’s the laughter and the toast of course. I always try to make sure I get a picture of the toast and try to position myself so that the champagne flute doesn’t obscure his face. But he raised the glass to a position I didn’t expect him to, such that it did obscure his face. So, I quickly adjusted my position just slightly so that the stem of the glass ran between his eyes. It creates a nice symmetry and balance and makes for quite a kooky, fun wedding day photograph.
