A Wedding at Quinta da Taipa, Alenquer


It was a wedding photographer morning. How are the wedding photographers’ mornings? Well, at least for me, the sky must not be completely clean, is a way to give a nice soft light, because a harsh light is no good to photograph a wedding and a wedding is…people. And people’s faces do not like hard light. Faces in a wedding are smiling faces, faces in celebration and party. With a nice soft light, everybody wins. The photographer can get better photos and the photographed will be better in the photos.

On that great wedding photographer morning, I was with the groom in the day he will change to husband from here to a few hours. Euphoric. I do not need to spend words because the photos will show that I am a photographer, not a writer. So that’s it with Pedro.

Some km after here I was the Filipa, the bride. It was at Quinta da Taipa, near Alenquer, under that light that this wedding photographer loved. Like a princess, surrounded by her waiting maids, each one with a special thing to do and start to be prepared for the celebration that everybody wants in the memory and in the heart. If something getaway, the wedding photographer catch and keep.

And everything started. The beginning command is spoken. The groom, flashy, waits for the bride who appears in the next moment, with a nervous serenity on her face, to a yes that all the presents want, because they love them, wishing them happiness forever. That is how it should be. And that is all in photos. How I like it.
