I understand

I am Wedding Photographer

With an apparently "little" job comes great responsibility

"What do you do for a living?", asked to me someone who don't know me.
"Photographer", I answer.
"Wow, it has to be an amazing job!", is the typical reply.

Then I think to myself: I am not Steve McCurry nor a reporter from a war zone: I'm just a Wedding Photographer.

But what is the real job of a Wedding Photographer? I can't speak in general terms, but I think that it's a very difficult job: a Wedding Photographer must have a special state of mind, otherwise his photos are insensitive. It's not about technique, it's about emotions and feelings.

You know how emotions work: they are intense but ephemeral. Peaks, sometimes unbearable, that time lessen little by little. In Your entire life You'll feel similar emotions, some weaker, some less recurring, but joy, happiness, sadness, pain will be always part of Your life.

I am a Wedding Photographer and I have a great, huge responsibility: over a considerable period of time, I must be good at make You relive the emotions You felt on the Wedding Day, like the first time. In 10, 20, 50 years You'll hold in Your hands that dusty, old, creased photo book We designed together, and You'll be there again, out of time. You'll relive that emotions with the same intensity as before. Your eyes will become watery remembering one of the most beautiful day of Your life.

I am not Steve McCurry nor a reporter from a war zone: I'm just a Wedding Photographer. That's exactly why I damn love my job.
