UNRAVEL STORIES by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
When wedding photographers meet each other and talk about their work, they always talk about the number of photos they do on the wedding day. There are those that photograph a lot and those that just wait, wait, wait…now, this is the moment, and do not take too many photos. However, with that, we can not define the quality of the work of each photographer. It is a method to achieve the goal.
I am a bit dual. I play in both methods of the process. It depends on what is going on. I may stay quiet and wait for that special moment that I know will happen and when it does I am ready to press the shutter button of the camera, but, also, if the scene in front of me starts to be busy, and interesting to photograph, I transform myself as a football player surrounded by adversaries in the move to the goal.
Those two photos show, even if not no so different, that process. We can tell a story with photography both ways: or everything is inside one and no more need to be shown, or we need another one, or more, to unveil some mystery not told in the first. The method was used in both by the wedding photographer. First, he just wait and did it. The second was the result of a fast reaction and the need for several. Everything is good to achieve the best result.
