WHEN THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER HAVE A DOUBT
After some years of photographing weddings, sometimes I ask myself, especially at the end of the season, if I still have the motivation to come back and repeat all that pictures that are very alike, from wedding to wedding. It is a doubt that can be answered in many ways but, to me, I find one that has something to do with this photo.
Since I started to photograph weddings I have always done this moment. The bride gets in the car to the ceremony. After all these years it could be boring to take a position near the car to capture just one more moment of the day. Even could not do it and go straight to the ceremony place and wait there for the bride, because it may not be important at all.
But..I always do it. If there are moments that make me vibrate to do it in that small amount of time, most of the times in anti-photo conditions, anticipating the movement of the bride, reacting fast as the bride put the dress inside the car, feeling the heart beating from someone that goes for moments with great emotions…this is the one. When I have some doubts I just need to remember how I feel, in that slice of action of a day, and the doubt just goes away and the wedding photographer is ready for the next wedding to come.
