In dance with the photographer, at a wedding


Wedding photographers and wedding parties are something that were made for each other. There is part of the wedding day that can be very different from wedding to wedding. Despiste all these years photographing weddings, I can not understand the reason about all this difference. If, by statistic, we can think that four groups of one hundred and twenty persons each, can behave exactly the same, the scholar could not be more mistaken. The wedding photographer is a witness that it never happens.

That is, also, true that the groups are, we may say, infected for some of the inner elements. When we do not find in the group those that are the motor to push everybody with them, the party does never happen. But if they are inside it, does not need to be so much, all the energy of the space change completely and everybody are able to do what they were there for. When the party is not quite a full party, the wedding photographer must challenged himself more, because he does not have around him all those fountains with fresh water to bring on a thirsty day. But, of course, he will find his way as he always do.

But, I must say, when I ear the music begin and everybody is there to jump at the same time and tap the foot with energy and rhythm, I am a happy person, because the wedding photographer cameras will be full of photos, for sure. I feel that all that fountains I wrote about, above, will overflow with fresh water all the night to quench the thirst of the dancers unwilling to stop. I, with my tools in my hands, go through that dancing forest everywhere and I discover the shy, the boldest, those that stop the others by amazement, those that defy as if dancing was a contest for the best and, even, those that just are on their own beat but, not even close, have less fun. It is true that, after some time, they will stop ahed, because, even, the wedding photographer can take loosing such amount of energy. The great difference between us, is that I bring them all with me.

Because, as the wedding photographer notice at the end, it was a challenge, the candidates for answer it and dance were a lot during all the wedding night that was full and complete.
