The lens of the camera. Always attentive. Waiting for the right moment. Knowing how to see what happens unnoticed by others. Capturing in a thousand of a second a sensation, an emotion, a moment. These are some of the many abilities that photographers have. Professionals who often manage to do their work without you realizing it.
(…) it’s important to know who will be the responsible of turning a gesture (…) into eternal.
The photographer is one who is capable of immortalizing a special moment. And that, not everyone knows how to do it. Therefore, it’s important to know who will be the responsible of turning a gesture, a smile or a look into eternal. In short, it will be able to pick up with the aim of your camera a moment that, after the years, will allow us to transport ourselves at that moment.
(…) you have to let it be the photographer’s eyes the choice of what and when to photograph.
A good photographer achieves what he seeks without needing artifice or forcing the situation. You don’t need a great assembly, an exaggerated decoration or artificially fill the ceremony so that his camera can capture a good picture. He shots the camera when you least expect it. Therefore, when preparing a ceremony as important as a wedding, you have to let it be the photographer’s eyes the choice of what and when to photograph. All this, even if they have their eyes closed. Because you never know when the photographer’s eye is watching you.
