A WALK BETWEEN RUINS by the PORTUGAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Often, when I combine, with a couple, the session before the wedding, usually called the elopement session, I think about all the places but those near my house. It seems that popular saying that says in the blacksmith’s house, a wooden skewer. Really, I confess that I have some places for this session, or because they are beautiful and give me good scenarios or because they have some sort of protection against bad weather, especially, on windy days.
So, when the session day is near, a consultation with the weather reports is mandatory to decide which place is better for the session with my couple. Because I am a wedding photographer I like to make a correlation between the sessions, pre and wedding day, and have some harmony between them in the wedding album.
Because I like so much, I can tell, to do portraits and being a sort of a frustrated fashion photographer, I find with those sessions the opportunity to give my fantasies some reality. I know, also, that the way how these sessions will run, will make so much easier the relationship between me and the wedding couple, on the wedding day. So, taking advantage of these spaces near my home place, I have the liberty to use them well and, after, go with the confidence I need on the day when I will be the wedding photographer, of the… wedding.
