THE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT WANT TO LEAVE by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

During their first dance, at the opening of the dance floor, the bride and groom look at each other in love, in a moment captured by the wedding photographer at Quinta das Palmeiras in Sintra.

There are, throughout the wedding day, some parts that offer the wedding photographer moments that are always repeated but never deliver him/her the same pictures. I could bring many examples but I will stick to these: during the couple’s first dance after getting married or the expectation of the single women present, always eager to know which of them will be the next in the group to open the dance at their wedding.

If, on the one hand, these can be moments that offer one of those photographs that wedding photographers like to show so that one can see their skill and aesthetic taste at the moment of capture, they are, at the same time, content full of truth that forces them to develop their tricks so that they always guarantee their capture, regardless of the conditions in which they take place.

One of the greatest challenges for any wedding photographer is to be able, or have, to adapt to all lighting conditions, without which there are simply no photographs, to the place chosen for each of the functions, or even to the whirlwind that surrounds a large part of the moments to be photographed. Some, obligatory and unmissable, have their difficulties that are almost always surmountable and always done.

The entrance of the bride and groom in a church with a light entrance worthy of the sun that sent it, by the entrance door, for which no camera has yet been designed, but longed for, a couple that decides to dance with faces hidden in each other in their first, in the opening of the dance floor, or, soon afterward to challenge in a choreography worthy of the great American musical movies, without warning or a bride that decides to deceive the single ladies in the sending of the bouquet not warning the wedding photographer that now it is the moment.

Not that the wedding photographer is complaining. Yeah, if the church doors were smaller, they would get married at night and not have that problem, or if everything were done according to his instructions, none would bring difficulties.

Quite the contrary. That’s what I like. You have no idea how much fun it is, after having tried several points of view after having stretched and told me that this time it won’t work, suddenly there she is, perfect, as if all the photos before she was playing with the wedding photographer to see what he’s capable of, and, cunningly, he prevented her from escaping and caught her at exactly the right moment. Like this.

I don’t believe that anyone who has broken the Olympic record for the 100 meters can be any happier. It’s exactly those almost impossible photographs, of those who are constantly hiding or who have the idea that they’re faster than he is, that, as soon as he’s got the hang of it, are the ones that give him the most satisfaction. The wedding photographer is like that.

With the single ladies behind her, the bride, blindfolded, prepares to deliver the bouquet to one of the bachelorettes present in the wedding party at Quinta das Palmeiras, seen by the wedding photographer in Sintra.
