The photographer and those who wait, at the wedding

THE WAITS by the LISBON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

For those used to read some posts in the blog of the wedding photographer, may believe that the wedding day is some sort marathon, which it is, and, here and there, with one hundred meters races in an Olympic final, which, also, it is. But we have intervals, better, some moments of waiting while the things to the wedding begin with some, while the others wait for their turn.

That is why, after the big race between the groom already ready,  and a bride which I though was already in advanced state of readiness , I touch the bell and find her relaxed Fernando we still did not started yet, I am waiting that my mother finish the hairdressing and, only after,  it’s my turn. Do not even think that the wedding photographer will be in a quiet mood with nothing to do. No way. There is always something to photograph and a waiting bride is a great subject. Now waits the bride for the hairdressing and, after, the bride’s mother for the make up, now, with the aunt.

So, the wedding photographer does not rest searching the best point of view and find, back there, the mother in observation mode and get quiet under a lamp, looking through his camera until he find the right moment to the face of the bride, in the make up process. It is like that. Some will rest, here and there, but the wedding photographer never think about that…not even a moment.
