The photographer and the photos that will meet him, at the wedding


Are the wedding photographers those that make the photos? Well, I never get tired of saying that I am not the one that takes the photographs. They are, graciously, offered to me. Countless times when, to the wedding photographer, they do not stop to fall in his eyes and he just has, with the help of his beloved photographic cameras, take them to deliver, after, to the legit owners.

It is true. Someone needs to know how to catch them. Because of that, I remember, when I was a boy, going to France and catching fruit in orchards on the Alpes. There was a man with us that was able to fill his boxes with a speed that left the rest of us, miles behind. As much I tried to reach him, it simply was impossible to do it. He was the guy. Simply he just knew how. In the same way, the wedding photographer must learn how to catch, this different kind of picking. I like this word because I can not find another one more truthful with what really happens.

It is, also, true that I depend on my beloved lens to give me the result I need. They are, also, knowledgeable about the profession and I can trust them to unfocus there and give me the finest detail, here. Only with my eyes, I do not do photos. They, also, are important to detect, frame, compose and give the sign for the right moment to pick them up. And it is so, so much. But, again, it is not the wedding photographer that made the photos, it is not…he just pick them up.
