Best Man Speech: Reception Lighting

Reception speeches can be touching, funny, or flat. Regardless, I'll photograph them beautifully.

If you've been asked to give a wedding reception speech, there are a few speech tips I can share.

First, don't start your best man speech or your maid of honor speech with "You probably don't know me, but my name is YOUR NAME." When I hear that dreaded phrase, part of me dies inside. Starting with "My name is Rob and I've been Billy's best friend for 16 years." is so much better!

Second, short beats long any day. Being brief is a blessing for everyone. Nobody wants to hear rambing stories about common happenings.
