A WEDDING NEAR THE BEGIN OF SUMMER
I, already, wrote here about the rush of the wedding photographers between the locations where they need to go. But with Vanessa in Abóboda, with a rainy day, and Ricardo in Atouguia, near Fátima, the things made me remember Speedy Gonzalez cartoons. Starting the day, in the morning, very early, and be catch by the hard rain, between the car and the hairdresser, where the bride was for the first part of her transformation, was not what this humble wedding photographer expected but…it is part of the job.
I must say that the bride and the make up team where very precise with timings to give me time to be with groom in time. After the bride, as a beautiful butterfly after metamorphosis, the way to Atouguia, which it seem a century ahead, was just a moment after that I was stopping at time to photograph the groom which was on time to the begin of the ceremony at the Atouguia main church.
I forgot to say that the rain stopped, it was just a starting day fright, and the weather was friendly all day and, arrived at the venue, at Quinta da Ramila at Ortiga, all the things that must be done in the wedding day where accomplished. Party, joy and best wishes to the bride and groom.
I was there to register all that and with mission accomplished I, slowly at dawn, back home, my head quarter.
