LOYALTY by PORTUGAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

   There are several years I have been a wedding photographer. Professionally. Before, also photography occupied my existence as if some sort of curse that did not let me look at other things and forced me to dedicate myself to it, like a passion that never allowed me to be elsewhere, and we all know the power of the passion.

But passions, because they are so demanding, usually also have the tendency to lose power and they become loved or vanish with the same fastness that made them come. However, with me, photography was never a passion, and, even today, it amazes me that it has been with me all this time. If it was a marriage it was, it was a very successful one.

We always have been faithful to each other and we never have been disappointed.

   It is about the photos I take in those moments just before the ceremony. When the groom and the bride arrive at the place of the ceremony and are just a few moments from confirming each other their new bond.

An institutional bond will be sworn in front of a representative that will be signed after the yes, a bond they both feel in that special place behind their eyes when they look at each other. I know that is true because I can confirm it in my photos, and with the bond between all those that belong to each other and, from now on, everybody belongs to everybody by family or by a witness.

Those steps that take them to the special moment, the subject of the insatiable wedding photographer, make it clear that they go to what attracts them without the slightest hesitation. It is an obligation of the wedding photographer in duty to let that mark in photos perpetuate through all time.

   From the experience of the wedding photographer, those are fast moments and a great challenge to use my cameras at the right moment, with framings that will tell the story and knowing that they arrive at the ceremonial altar almost before they start the walk, to be together.

It is one of those moments. Where the confidence of the photographer in his tools is essential so that this part of the day does not stay out of the story.

Until now, they never missed one.
