NOT PHOTOGRAPHABLE MOMENTS BY THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Moment of an affectionate hug, of the newly married couple with reflection in a mirror, viewed by the wedding photographer in Lisbon.

Intimate moments. Even if the wedding is a public act I believe that some moments must stay private. I do not talk about illegal things but, sometimes, simple moments of affection. As a wedding photographer, I do not believe that everything is photographable.

I find several times, in those sites that reward wedding photos in some moments that are from great specularity, strangeness, or out of the usual. They generate fantastic pictures but, sometimes, surpass the intimate space of the people that were photographed.

I may say that contrary to the humor ( I am listening, on the radio, a talk show about that) I impose on myself some limits to my impulse to photograph the moments that I am finding, as subject to photos that I was, by the couple, in charge to do. There are moments that do not concern the wedding photographer and just happen to have vanished and only exist, as a memorable impression, in those who lived them.
