LET’S GO by the SINTRA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Not always, in the place where the wedding party takes place, I can find good solutions to photograph the session, with the couple in the wedding day. I learned, with my time as wedding photographer, that I need the right hour and a friendly place so that people, not used to let themselves fly away as light through lens, until the bottom of a photographic camera, can do it with joy and surrender.
We can never do a portrait against the photographed. As much the wedding photographer knows how to use their cameras, find the best lens for the result he want he will never succeed if he does not have the photographed completely committed, with what they are doing. Whether to fake a situation, like characters from a movie premiering one of these days, whether to show that they are completely committed each other, be so that the happiness of the wedding day, exactly, enter in the sensor of my camera or, also, those photographing moments where full of joy, until they come back to the company of their guests.
So, before the it is time to go, the wedding photographer must, when he find some moments, search for places where, using the imagination, he anticipate all the points of view for photos, poses and combinations. There, is good. Here? No. Look there, near the wall, fantastic…Photographing without a camera and no lens it is a wonderful exercise that I like very much to do and very useful, with the session with the wedding couple. But, almost always, it happens that, in the real session, nothing will be like that, but that is the main reason and at the right time, I point to my couple and…let’s go, it is time. And it is a joy, on both sides, as they told me.
