The photographer without rest, at weddings

IRREPETIBLE by the LISBON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

When I started photographing weddings and decided that was the new path for my photography profession, I asked myself a question, because I know me. Will I have the patience for doing every the same thing, after some time? This thing, the weddings, is always the same thing, the people there do all the same things and I am afraid that, after some time, I will be bored and want something else. Do I need to think about other future?

Well, I could not be so wrong and, faster than I thought, none of those worries happened a minute. That is true that we can find several parts in the wedding very much alike and some are more relaxed than others. But for the wedding photographer, everything is, all the time, different. To him, details are what is important. If we photograph a wedding far away, quickly we decide that it is a boring thing to do and, maybe, it is for the better to find something else ahead.

But, the moment we approach, we find all the diversity that belongs to the human being. The countless gestures he is able to do, the countless recombinations that the human group is capable of, the changes inside of inner spaces, invisible far away, the magnitude of the affections in the form of looking eyes, kisses, touching hands or hugs never let the wedding photographer quiet for a moment. As for me, I haven’t gotten tired or bored, yet.
