WE ARE INSTANTS.
And I know you are about to live one of the most special moments of your life.
It may be that moment when you see your partner waiting for you at the altar for the first time, or it may be the kiss your mother gives you when she notices you are nervous. It may be your father’s tears when he sees you dressed as a bride for the first time or the hug from your friends at the end of the ceremony.
All that and much more is what my photography is about. To make sure that all those moments of happiness, nerves, illusion, emotion… are saved forever. So let me thank you because you are about to give me that responsibility, but above all to give me that gift: that I am the one in charge of saving all those moments.
What is my wedding photography about?
Well, first of all it’s about you, I think that’s the most important thing, that when you see the picture, you recognize yourselves in it and that it takes you right to that moment in which it was taken. I don’t want you to see your wedding in my photographs, I want you to FEEL your wedding.
Secondly, it’s about light. Light is my favorite tool to work with, much more than any camera or lens. I learn all the time and that’s why my photography is steeped in it.
It is also about composition, color, emotion, fun moments, but also quiet and intimate ones. It is about documentary wedding photography, about saving those moments forever.
Because at the end of the day the moments are us loving life very strongly.
How do we start?
I guess you are looking at a lot of wedding photographers, I hope you have seen in my photographs something special and that this has decided you want to count on me for your wedding day.
If you are looking for a conventional wedding photographer with a lot of poses, it is very likely that I am not for you, but if you are looking for photographs full of light and color and that surprise you, that tell the story of your day: I’m the one for you.
We will talk everything you need about your wedding; I will help you in everything I can and I will solve all your doubts.
I want you to feel me as a guest on your wedding day and I want you to feel comfortable because that’s precisely what my photography is based on, that you are relaxed and enjoying and feeling the moment. That’s what documentary wedding photography is based on.
Are we done?
The final step will be the delivery of your photographs, with them I hope you will relive and feel all the moments lived that day. I will upload the photographs in an online gallery so you can download them comfortably and also share them with family and friends.
