THE BEST PLACE TO PHOTOGRAPH by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN NAZARÉ
This is a photo that was not possible to do with the groom and friends. Maybe the reaction could be to show some of the “flaws” of the suit and with some jokes about it. That is more suitable for the universe of the “guys”. From the part of the bride, it is not like that and I find, in that photo, some things that show us how different are those two universes.
First, let me tell you that this photo was not meant to be. My first idea was to cover the bride coming from the room, where she was dressed, near her friends expecting her, with restlessness, because nobody saw the dress yet and the bride with it like a beautiful blossom flower. It should be obvious that the importance was to photograph the bride showing up before such an impatient crowd.
However, I decided to do the opposite at the last moment. I position myself in a way to have all that scene before me and give importance to the reaction to what is coming. In a fraction of time, I perceive that I have in front of me all the feminine universe in terms of age that, at least, will give me a beautiful composition and, as a bonus, a great reaction when the bride appears. And that happens. From those that the bride is a glamorous princess, from that bride to be, from that bride, one or another still waiting for a prince and the future mother-in-law peeking for approval.
We can see that the wedding photographer’s decision was the correct one. We can see also, even if I had put the bride in a second plan, that with all those smiling eyes and wonderful faces, in fact, the first issue of that photo is the bride. It is also with photos like this that I am sure that what I do is what I must do and before a fraction of time decisions my instinct guides me to the right decisions giving me sure that I am a wedding photographer with body and soul. And that must be for the future.
