The photographer and the patience of waiting in the wedding get ready


When I feel that I have some time to give myself and the luxury of slowly watching my subject, observing without the need of hurry, I like to put myself in the point of view, that I feel is the best, and wait. Wait until that face move to the right angle which make me feel that is there and, because the wedding photographer does not satisfied himself with little things, with that mood for the moment in question.

Usually, that time spent patiently is a gain that wedding photographers, without words and directing gestures but present in their head, ask just a little bit to the right, look in front, drop the head a bit back and…and…almost…almost…done, thank you. I may say the the calm is only apparent because I do not stop, thinking, telling them what I need to do. It seems that they hear me and offer me those photos that I desired so much.

It does not seem but is true. Being a wedding photographer, that find the photos in the move of the events without my intervention, there are some moments where I would like to be a telepath to correct the almost gesture that move away from perfection. I know, it is too much imagination. But this kind of delirium guide me to pick up the best as I can, since I am there. I think, really, that this must be the duty of every wedding photographers, each one, with his own tricks.
