New Year, dances and photographer, at a wedding

The wedding couple’s parents are always heroes of the night when we find them dancing non-stop, making the lenses of the photographer so happy.

Who said that a big wedding has more fun than a small one? I was not and I never could. My time, as a wedding photographer, taught me never to predict how that group of people will behave, when it’s time to tap the foot, with the musical rhythm, and at the right time with all the others who are at the wedding party. To think that within a large group, it will be always the same, wherever this group is, is a mistake. Never is.

Sometimes it seems that everybody has only a right foot and it is impossible to tune with the music, other, nobody feels the rhythm, there is only a slight shake enough to make it look like they are dancing, and here, everybody knows what to do and the party is really party, a thing that the wedding photographer does not care about, just takes advantage. Of course, I am exaggerating a bit, as someone used to fantasies that help me, a lot, during the working day or…night.

I do not know if it was because the year was in the last moments to go, and the new one almost showing the eyes in the clock of the room, but, those guests, did not have a word for rest and everybody knew all the seasonings and secrets to dance and joy. I may say that nothing ended with the stop for the 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 happy new year for all and, especially, for the wedding couple. None of these, things continued until some begin to surrender and thought that it was time to rest. It happens. The wedding photographer, also, decided that it was time to rest his cameras and lens and left, already in a new year wishing to be the best.

Communication moments when dancing must not be wasted. There is a story to be told.

In the middle of the group, at some moment, we find the main characters of the story. Those things that the photographer must be aware.

Finding someone with that full-of-life expression is always a great attraction for my lenses. The one I used here does not lose one of it.

And we have the bride, always attentive to the guests. For sure a great photographic opportunity.

Children, their parents, and their attentive eyes are essential to finding those photos that the wedding photographer can not let go of.

For New Year’s Eve weddings, the pyramid of champagne glasses to be filled by the newlyweds is a mandatory photo.

And everybody waits for the first second of the New Year. The photo did exactly in the moment of the passage when everybody starts to explode with joy and welcome the new year.
