In this short video tutorial from my course on Reportage Wedding Photography, I'll teach you how to approach a documentary-style wedding shoot. You'll learn about the kinds of scenes to watch out for, the importance of shooting from different angles, making the best use of downtime, and more.

The reportage style is more than adopting an aesthetic: it is about a mindset, technique, and approach to photographing weddings that uses reality as your canvas to tell a story. 

In the full course, Reportage Wedding Photography, you'll learn how to integrate the reportage working style to produce a compelling, naturalistic photographic record from the complexity and high emotion of a wedding day.

And if you need help with the post-production, you can order some of the expert photo editing services on Envato Studio.
