BUILDING YOURSELF by the WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
What are the processes, on the wedding day, that the wedding photographers must have in the building of the action? Because wedding photography, from some time ago, is almost similar to the documentary photography we see in journalism, we can not direct the elements of the day because they are characters in a perfect state of improvisation. So, imagination must be the main factor to help them to find the best solution to approach the action.
The wedding photographer must be very open to finding those solutions because he has no power at all in the action of the day and he must adapt himself to the spaces and with the happenings. If he chooses a close up he must know what is important, at that moment, in the way to inform that photo with his own identity. If he chooses a wide lens he needs to know exactly how he delivers all the elements inside with the harmony and the story inside or if he just waits for the expected moment he believes will happen.
That is what built its own identity. What we call style. Every wedding photographers have his own style. The reason why they have it is, maybe, more complex to detect. First, he must have a great ability to observe and react fast and, fundamentally, a strong notion of the aesthetic he wants to dress that catches as a final result. I think I am not different from that and, of course, I think I have my own style as a wedding photographer. But, in the end, only the viewer and possibly interested can do the judgment. If it is the case, count on me.
