UNDER THE SUN OF THE SOUTH by the ALGARVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
As I already said, when I was writing my posts, the wedding photographers had no new material to show, because their work just vanished because of the Covid 19. So, When I was looking for some weddings to illustrate these new posts, I found myself, again, in Monchique, at Algarve, on that soft sunny afternoon, as it is usually in those lands. The wedding photographer could not do anything else but take advantage of what Miriam and Ronan offered him.
The taste that people from Northern Europe have to come down here and enjoy the warm sunshine, which fails them in their homeland, can only give them happy celebrations and joyful party time. In addition, to be a wedding photographer, I am locally born, used to the humor of the sun, and it is nice to see happy people bathing in it and I only can give them a number of stories to be told, after, in the north, at those afternoons by tea and scones, in the form of photos.
I must say, however, that they chose a place that, for the wedding photographer, it was, always, a vineyard ready to be harvested. In the middle of the Monchique hills, almost near the village, an old mansion is used for these gatherings, where two of the group will say yes, at a certain moment of a ceremony, for the emotion of everybody present. There are some of those moments that never let my eyes rest and, at the same time, find the looking eyes that come from everyone to a couple of the day, letting them do what they so much like and face the bride and the groom with those expressions that no photographic camera can resist. That is the reason why some of that photos come back to my blog. With so great pleasure.
