A wedding at Casa de Reguengos

JAZZ AND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I was listening Miles Davis Sanctury, from  Bitches Brew album, and I found a relationship between  what I do, wedding photography, and this theme. Maybe a bit entwined if some jazz purist read this but wedding photographic cover does not stay very far from a theme played by ears and fingers used to travels between the chords.

I explain. As jazz, the wedding day have a theme. We know that we have a pathway: get ready in the house of the bride and groom, ceremony place, venue to the party and the session with the couple. That we know from a piece of paper. The jazz musician have a tune to follow. But we never know what we gonna find at each place and everytime we need to make changes, improvise, change the beat, fast, fast, fast. Slow, very slow and…very fast. The soloists adapt the theme to is own feelings as the bride and groom have the need to adapt in the moment, because the make up artist take a bit longer, the granny arrive and the bride need to kiss her, the bride bouquet has not been delivered and…so…so…so on. Going to church we, the wedding photographers, need to go fast because the priest do not like to wait but a big truck take over the road, so it is slow, but now it is time to start a new theme at the door of the church. In time.

Of course the wedding of Tânia and Bruno was not different. The theme, the necessary improvisation, not letting the time without time to be in time and the soloists always glowing and perfect as it should be in such important performance.

If I was a musician, it must be a jazz one. But, I must say, as wedding photographer, of course with my exaggerated imagination, I find myself as a jazz soloist playing in a big band. Thank you very much Tânia and Bruno because you did it, so… until the wedding photographer next show.
