The bride and the mirror

MIRRORS by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN PORTALEGRE

In pink pastel tones, the bride, in a mirror, looking at the bouquet, before leaving for the wedding ceremony.

Peeking is one thing I love to do as a photographer. It is that casual behavior that everybody has when, not being a part of the action, turn their eyes and catch that small part of the happening, sometimes with that blur that gives a completely different vision of the reality, almost dreamlike and, like a photo, stay printed in our mind without wanting to know what really happened.

I think that most wedding photographers have this peeking side. That is why a lot of the new wedding photos, at this day’s weddings, have that unexpected and without that frontal, and sometimes, dry of the things really there.

For me, everything is worth a peek at the almost closed door, the group of people that opens a corridor with my subject at the end, the small gap in the flower branch, and… mirrors. Mirrors have, themselves, the photo already made and give me all the freedom to choose the best piece for the best photo and, when I can do it, catch the right moment and have the cherry on the top of the cake. Here, it happened. Thank you Inês
