THE EMOTION OF THE TIES by Fernando Colaço, The Wedding Photographer in Portugal

Many times I ask myself about the reason I insist on doing photography.  After a nice professional career in several areas of the photography trade, and before as an amateur (the one who loves the subject he does), why I find myself with this self-satisfaction, and thankful, for this thing called wedding photography.

I always find the same answer: people. Every time I try to think about this or pick up a photographic camera, my direction is always to the people. I could have chosen a different kind of photography, maybe more accepted by knowledgeable people, but wedding photography fill the concept: photographing people doing things that people do.

But, sometimes, we do not choose what we do. Things we do choose us. By chance, we are picked by something that will define us for the rest of our life. It happened to me. By chance, I did some photos at a wedding and I found there everything I like in photography: people, people, and people. People with ties. Family ties, friendship ties, love ties, and, especially,  ties for the future. Well, with some flowers, decorated tables, and pointing signs.

My name is Fernando Colaço and that was the reason why I am a wedding photographer. That is why I commit myself to do my best at every single moment on the wedding day. Unconditionally.

At your service
