Where to the photographer is not enough to be fast after the wedding ceremony

THE ATTRACTION FOR THE FACE EXPRESSIONS by THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

If there are moments, in the wedding day process, when the wedding photographers are completely dependent on spontaneity it is when, since the wedding ceremony comes to an end, the couple receives those hugs and kisses I am very happy for you the families and guests. It is an authentic game of run and catches because what happens in front of my cameras is so fast that could be compared to a rally race, with his fast abrupt curves and hilltop jumps that, so much, appeal to fans.

Not undoing the other parts of the day, here is an authentic look at me and see if you can catch me. I have the bride receiving compliments and at the moment I feel the photo, someone appears in the middle and makes it impossible my best photo of the day…it could be. When I feel that I have that perfect facial expression of the groom, suddenly, his attention goes away, and…it was.

Having dozens and dozens of people, wishing them well in that short space can create moments of some euphoria because, to some, it is time to snuggle stomachs, and all that is a very desired subject and a titanic fight to achieve great photos by the wedding photographer.

It seems, by the difficulty of the last paragraph, that the wedding photographer prefers to abandon and wait for the next more easy stage. But that is just the opposite. It is a great challenge to him, where he can prove to himself that he can achieve, in those very difficult photographable moments, and be effective doing that. It is like being inside a game with the only purpose is to win. Maybe it is the time when wedding photographers show themselves what they are able to do. At least that’s where I test myself, and the result doesn’t seem too bad.
