The bride reminds me of Say Alonzo. A Pinoy Big Brother housemate. Heart shaped face. High cheekbones. Lithe figure. Expressive eyes. Very feminine. She looked dashing in a Carry Santiago gown. Made me wish I had a figure like hers.
When I shoot weddings, I usually stay with the bride. I pay attention to her unspoken emotions and the excitement around her. I look for reactions or interactions. I am preoccupied with these things most of the time. But for this wedding, I jumped over to the groom’s room. The excitement there was different. I think men have a funny way of juggling emotions. They tease and make fun of each other.
I should do this more often – photograph the groom.
