The photographer and the bride’s small arrangements, at the wedding

ARE YOU SURE? by the LISBON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Probably it is only an opinion of the wedding photographers who have a very limited notion of the wedding to what interests them: photographing. So, there is no doubt that the bride has completely different importance in the get ready than the groom. Not because the groom does not matter, but because his process is much more simple. He starts and he is ready to go to the ceremony place. Which, too, is a great challenge to the wedding photographer.

But, let’s go back to the bride. Her attachment to the details sees mistakes where the wedding photographer checks that everything is fine, even if the time he lives between brides, make-up artists, hairdressers and girlfriends let him know how to detect these details, which helps him to catch more worthy moments for photography. It is true that my job has gained from this learning and when, in the beginning, I let go away some of them, today, there are not so many photos that have the ability to escape to my lens.

That is true, I must say it, with time I started to better understand the world of the brides and knowing how to capture those fluttering gestures, that only female hands are able, correcting that detail, which is only good for the storytelling that I am in charge to write. Not only do I have the amount, that allows me the ideal points of view, but I also have the opportunity to dress with photography those gestures and arrangements to please curious eyes, afterward. Fortunately… 

Bride, on the mirror, for last minute arrangements.
