Some of the best photos that you’ll create while shooting a wedding are the candids. These are the ones that will make someone’s jaw drop or make the happy couple cry.

The folks over at SLR Lounge created a video about shooting better candids in a photojournalistic style. One of the biggest tips: move around. Moving around and not staying in one spot gives you lots of different angles to work with and different compositions. Pye explains it a bit more both in their article and in the video below.
