  I have already written here about what the wedding photographer was doing when he photographed other things, and weddings did not seem to have much interest for him and for the lenses he used at the time.

Some of them liked more packaging with things inside, others with people inside things, and also, others to show what was inside things. They were satisfied, they did not complain like the ones I have now, but the photographer did not feel very complete in what he was doing at the moment. Something was left out but he was not quite sure what. The day I have already described here more than once and, now, it is not worth it.

    One of the forms of photography I was doing at the time was architecture. I always loved to enter an inner space and search for the best point of view, find the lens suited for what I need to take, and give me the best reading of the place.

The pleasure of following the vanishing point, taking advantage of the architectural lines or the light and shadow zones to give me the environment I wanted to show. I still remember the days I carried my 3500w flashlight units to illuminate or just fill a shadow zone to get better detail. Even today, I never miss any opportunity and satisfy my finger on the shutter button with this form of photography.

As a wedding photographer, I have always the churches, the venues, the houses of the wedding couple for the get ready, and the exterior architecture that greatly increases my chances of continuing to have this pleasure at weddings.

  It was with great relief that I verified that I do not need to let go of the forms of photography that occupied my cameras and lenses, because on the wedding day, I can find them in the wedding couple ornaments, the decorative flowers, or the bride’s bouquet, on the table decorations for the wedding meal and, also, the little things in the interior of the basilicas or the little country churches, receiving for the ceremonial of the so expected yes. I remember so well when I photographed my first wedding, still without professional responsibility, and my eyes got bright when they verified that they had everything they needed. 

It was after that moment that the photographer became a wedding photographer. Until today.
