I like to capture the moments in the most natural way possible and use everything that surrounds me if it will help me to make a better image or a more creative shot. I always take a look around before I start to shoot, but I don't like to have a schedule or a guide to follow. At the time of taking the photos, I like to start and then the inspiration that the couple gives me, plus all the places and light that surround us, start to work together.

This shoot was on a beach in the Caribbean of Mexico. I'm lucky enough to live and work on a great place, where the water is warm all year, and it's clear enough to see through even if you are a meter away. I was getting ready for the photo, trying different types of compositions, when a great wave came through (something really unusual in summer time), and it was the perfect moment, and magically, the bride and groom started to run. I was so excited that I started to shoot as long as the wave went thru. After I went through all the images, this one resulted as THE one, and that's how this photo happened. I can say that the cosmos conspired in my favor.

The challenge of this picture was trying to keep the composition of the picture and the couple in the right place, at the same time as the waves were passing on top of me.

This pictures was taken with a Canon 5D Mark II with a 16–35 mm lens L on an underwater case Sea & Sea.

The post processing of this picture was simple & natural. I like to keep the colors on a natural level, as they are in real life. I corrected the composition, fixed the saturation and brightness and a little color correction. That's it. Something simple.

I feel really happy with the result of the picture. The bride and groom loved the session and this picture is unique from all the photos that we took. The photo already won an award and one of the reasons why the bride and groom were really proud of it.

Here in the UK it's not every day we're given a chance to shoot sunset, so when an opportunity comes along we take it. This shot was taken after the First Dance, I'd basically fini
