Remember the elegant bride from the botanical garden? She appeared very tense and wasn't the least bit thrilled at the sight of me and my camera. See the guy in the back? He's the photographer. He laughed when he saw me, enthusiastically gestured, and encouraged me in an Italian accent to continue taking photographs.
Later, it seemed perfectly apparent that this bride harbored no love for the lens. Her photographer looked to be at a loss. Even the tourists were confused by her reluctance.
It seemed that the wedding party had given up attempts to understand her ambivalence, as they aimlessly began wandering to and fro. Her photographer, however, remained resilient…
When he spotted me with my camera ready, his enthusiasm returned. See his hand with two raised fingers? He smiled and gestured again and again. I believe he wanted someone to capture his lovely, albeit reluctant bride. As you can see, the tourists required no additional encouragement.
