MIRROR, MY MIRROR and THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
The mirror or the other side of the imagination. I have a fascination, almost maniac, by mirrors and when I enter in the place where the bride, or the groom, is getting ready, and just needing that the wedding photographer start to catch the stories, if I do not see a mirror I feel some sort of discomfort that, suddenly, go away because there is a lot work to be done.
However a mirror can help the catch of photos happening everywhere and, with the help of his beloved lens, the wedding photographer can create, sometimes, a sensation of dream, some other reality as if a suspended garden was there or when someone see it, later in the future, that space was transformed in a sort of wonder. A nice wonder, a wanted wonder.
But even if I do not think about it, at the moment I start to prepare my strategy of taking views, the first thing that my part of wedding photographer do is searching for the mirrors. If there is one, I may say, I feel some sort of relief but if is not…not. And I follow to my duty.
