Unexpected moments for a photographer in a wedding day

SOMETHING NEW by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

There are happenings that delight me. One of them is to find, without knowing it, a new habit coming from other places and cultures, and find it in front of me to transform into photographs on the wedding day. When you photograph a wedding with people coming from far away places, it is something that can happen without anything being told to us in advance. Between the amazement to see and understand, the amazement stops the movement, and the need to react fast when there is a glimpse of inaction that can not avoid doing the work properly. 

And there it is, it is fast and not always the light comes right. But, I do not know why at that moment I am committed by a frenzy so fast that I can realize I am doing what I must. I know that wedding photographers have these things and they do not know from where they come. But, they help at the right moment when they are most needed.

That is true, that is for what they are charged on the wedding day. However, being a wedding photographer does not mean that you know everything about everything, but I can not stop delighting myself when I delivered the detection, observation, and acted right to that photo in front of me. It is always a renewed taste.
