Wedding at Quinta do Roseiral

THE DEPARTURE MOMENT by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN PORTUGAL

Holding hands and facing each other, the bride and groom look each other in the eye through the blurred plants in the Quinta do Roseiral garden.

We may think that the work of the photographer, chosen to cover the wedding, is just following the script, which does not need a director, with some rigor. If it is so regular why, before the departure and even on the way to the groom, usually the first to be photographed, some edgy behavior come to me, because maybe I can not do the job well, maybe I will get delayed at the ceremony because the traffic, maybe I will get lost, maybe today the light will be lousy, maybe the priest does not let me photograph the way I like it, maybe the light at night in the venue will be not good, maybe the place to cut the cake….Ok…that is enough.

For some time, I thought it was only my problem. Well, maybe I am not confident enough, maybe…But in a forum with fellow wedding photographers, I ask that question, and the answers were total and loud: When I stop feeling that I will stop photographing. Wow, that rested my head and rethought again, maybe it is the love I have for my profession, and the need to do the best I can, that this insecurity is no more than an alert in my mind to be always ready to be the best.

It was like that at the Mónica and António wedding at Quinta do Roseiral. Even though I was very nervous, when I arrived near António, in the first photo I was near happiness. Of course, at the end of the day, my neck, my back, and my legs do not agree with that. A mix of hard work and satisfaction because doing it is my pleasure, in the end. To Mónica and António, my wedding photographer big thanks to you.
