A wedding at Quinta do Lumarinho

THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

In the midst of the guests, the bride and groom offer flowers to the patron saint of the church, at the end of the wedding ceremony, viewed by the wedding photographer in Lisbon.

Leave home very soon, to a photography wedding day, with that adventure spirit when we know what we gonna do, but with the incertitude of all the imponderable that can change all the planned things. The journey was planned several months ago and, between the first day and the departure moment, we have the certitude of the happening but since the departure moment we, or me, enter in a mixture of enrapturing because it is de moment to go with the incertitude with what we gonna find.

If we have a wedding day, instead of a hypothetical trip, we can see not much difference because, really, we have several journeys to the bride and groom’s houses, ceremony, venue, and back home. For me, as a wedding photographer, all-day photographing is also a very big journey and, when I come back home, I bring with me that great inner satisfaction even if some parts of my body have a different opinion.

However, it is something that makes me always back on somebody’s wedding day. Today I write about Sónia and Francisco who married at Quinta do Lumarinho. I am, really, sure that they passed with the same emotions, and expectations that I did, and more because they received affection and love from everybody with them all day. And I registered that for them, they think.

Because my wedding photographer’s attitude is full of emotional reactions to all the energy that envelopes those people, on this special day, I think, this must be noticed in the photos I have done. So this is exactly how I like, always, to come back. So much.
