I built my wedding albums as a photography book telling a story. Better, the album tells, in several chapters, a story that will be told in the future to someone who, accidentally finds it in a chest in the attic of the grandparents. As a wedding photographer, or as any kind of photographer that has a connection with his work, I wish that my photos must be the queens of this book telling the story of these two persons, in a day already in the past, that they were kind enough to invite me to fill it.
The dream of the wedding photographer, that big dream that motivates me in all the aspects of the process until the moment I pick it up from the lab and deliver it to those that take it home when reviewed, someone will say, with glowing satisfied eyes, how nice you were in those beautiful photos. I imagine that maybe descendants from those that take it from me, like a picture from a painter that does not like to let it go, will have a nice word about the one who put those photos side by side, made them in a very important day from their relatives and, with that, turn possible that discovery. That is why I do what I do with the most intense delivery I can.
Since photography was something that touch me, I found in the pages of magazines and books the livelihood and foundation of the upcoming profession. That is why I do not like to call it albums. I prefer books. The Wedding Book. The book tells the story of the day of the wedding. That is why I lay down my pictures from the first to the last page as each of them has an important mission to the future. The opening one must invite and the last one must tell that the story does not end there and all the others that will come are based in that book. What a responsibility the wedding photographer have.
Here they are some first and last pages from some albums, sorry, some books that I was allowed to photograph. Beautiful couples that offered me that moment to capture and I transformed in the printed paper that we can touch as we can do in the things we love, they will be part of some shelves until, one day, dusty, they wake up eyes from those who bring it to light, again. That is the secret wish of the wedding photographer.
