Mirror, oh my mirror …and the shy in the wedding

BRING THEM by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

The groom is helped by the mother's hands, inside a round mirror, by the wedding photographer in Portugal.

When I am photographing a wedding I am always finding an action that can give me a story, that fulfills the day and everybody there. It is not the first time that I have run parents from the camera, shy mothers with lenses asking the photographer…not me.

That is why I need to find subterfuges to integrate all the participants without forcing their presence in front of the lens. Mirrors are my great friends when I need to find some solutions to those situations. They help me to hide those that do not want to show up and, also, to achieve, at the bottom of the room, that presence needs to be remembered.

The not intrusive and respectful wedding photographer has the obligation to ensure attendance for those who were present. This is a good balance to ensure that my attention was the reason to be there. Tell a story with mandatory characters, not all the time wishing to be photographed must be remembered in the first line. It is a very good challenge for the wedding photographer. The mirrors deserve all my thanks.
