In each wedding there are moments that tell a story, that are meaningful or just amazing for the simplicity of the moment that is captured. They are important moments; but may never find themselves included in a wedding magazine or blog, but to me it would be a shame if they were not shown. This is at the heart of my Wedding Portfolio Series. Through this series I will showcase some favorite moments captured on the wedding day.
It was a hot summer afternoon and the wedding timeline had missed a beat and the couples grand entrance into the wedding reception was delayed due the service that was about to take place upstairs. No loud music allowed…and so everyone waited at the bar in the church basement to stay cool, enjoy a bite to eat…and what else would you do with a group of die-hard Portuguese soccer fans…but watch some soccer.
I love the composition of this image of three men together, brother, uncle and son next to the wall of soccer trophies and photos from the past. It’s an image about bonding as much as it is about waiting. It’s an image rich in the tradition and a shared love of sport and the importance of family.
I love the composition of the three together in what seems like negative space. I especially love how I was able to take this image without them taking notice of me…I was blending right in.
