FOR WHOM EVERYBODY WAITS, ON THE WEDDING DAY
The arrival of the bride is, always, one of the most expected moments on a wedding day if at the Church or at the civil ceremony. That is why all wedding photographers try to find the best position for the best-coming photos.
Because it is a very fast and unrepeatable moment I try not to invent something new at the moment, but my experience gives me the knowledge to “guess” the best spot in the space conditions, church, or venue, where the ceremony takes place.
However, sometimes one photo of that moment surprises me. It seems that all the elements present in the frame presented me with the perfect behavior giving me that photo, for my pleasure. It was that one when Ana and his father start to enter S. Vicente’s church at Guarda. A bride happy, powerful, a father with his protective hand granting a safe way and, waiting for the bride, the best frame: the ring girl full of flowers with granny with last advice and uncle firm at his position at the corner of the frame as he should be. Left side the boy looks at the princess and godmother looking for the freeway inside the church.
Well, how much a photo can tell? And that one, I did it.
