Wedding at Quinta da Cascata in Mafra

Bride with guests while one takes a selfie in the party at Quinta da Cascata, by the wedding photographer in Mafra.

The last days of August leave the hot days of the Summer behind, and when September walks slowly to the beginning of the fall, the wedding photographer starts to think about the season that enters the final phase. But it is exactly the opposite.

With the last weddings to photograph he has in his hands, still, the photo editor from the last weddings, the design of the albums, the meetings to approval those albums, the meetings to deliver the work already done, the send to the laboratory those that need to be printed, approve the prints in the lab of the albums to be finished, pick up those, accept some ordered photos from the guests, send them to print and pick up them to post for the clients and….wow, it is a lot of things that a wedding photographer do. AH!… and, thankfully, the new meetings for the next clients.

However, I do not know a wedding photographer who, in the field of the wedding day, does not deliver everything he, or she, can to bring the maximum of his knowledge and energy, even at the end of the season. His love for photography and the pleasure, after all that hustle and bustle, of delivering the final work to the no more bride and groom and seeing those smiles hear to hear, happy with the photos that will remember, through time, the best day of their life, their wedding day.

I was like that when I delivered to Margarida and Filipe the album, and all the work, remembering the great party at Quinta da Cascata, near Mafra in Portugal.
