THE UNEXPECTED WITH THE KIDS AND THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

At weddings, we can find some people that deserve all my admiration. The kids. Not only because they are great subjects to make photos for the photographer with curious eyes but because they, usually, do not understand what they are doing here, they must hold all the wedding stages and always be very clean as the event require.

Children do not always have the notion of the importance of the day and their cooperation is very relative. They lose patience very often because playing games is more fun than the quietness as the ceremony place obliges and the long bench in the church is more fun to glide on or to surpass as obstacles race.

I, often, remember that little girl, when I was starting as a wedding photographer. Compelled by her grandmother to photograph she started to run away from me all the time I was near. As a ring child, she did it with stretched arms and face to the ground because she do not want me to photograph her. At the end of the day, I was giving my cameras the quietness they deserve in the bag, and someone call me. Guess who. Look, now I want and with my mother and with her because she is my friend. I do not need to say what this wedding photographer did. And never forgot it.
