Tell us a little about yourself??

I worked as a cameraman for TV news in Spain for 12 years before becoming a photographer, so I have taken the same photo journalistic approach in wedding photography.

Awarded member of ISPWP and Fearless Photographers, father of 2 lovely kids and avid traveler.

How do you think or would like people to describe you?

Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

Cristina and Miguel chose a beautiful country house near a lake, where they celebrated ceremony, the reception and the party.

Luckily for me the wedding photography was one of the priorities of the couple, so I had creativity freedom and they happily accepted all my suggestions.

How did you get into wedding photography?

The first time I worked at a wedding was 15 years ago as a videographer. Since then, I shot lots of wedding videos, so the transition to wedding photography was relatively easy.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

Look for personal connection with the wedding photographer and his/her style, not for discounts.

How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?

I put all my efforts on my blog and social media, mainly Facebook.

Why do you think people hire you?

Most of the time, when couples hire me we get sort of a connection that goes further than just an economic transaction.

What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.

To stay focused, creative and ready for action throughout the 12-14 hours of the wedding day.

Do you have an approach to a wedding?

I move slow and think fast. Moving from one side to the other is just going to make the couple and their guests nervous, and I’m going to get tired sooner (which affects my creativity).

Who or what inspires you?

I find inspiration almost everywhere: paintings, movies, books, music videos, nature.

Best & Worst marketing idea so far?

I think the best marketing idea is to be genuine and offer the best version of yourself to your clients. On the other hand, the worst thing you can do is pretending to be someone else.

If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?

Since I studied cinema at university, maybe I would be a film director.

Share your favourite image of the day and why?

The first-look was one of the most intimate and emotional moments of the day. The image of that moment was one of my favorites: the couple was separated by a translucent door and they were talking through it just the moment before they saw each other.

Do you have any goals for the future photography related or otherwise?

My short-term goal is to become an international wedding photographer. Hawai, Bali, India, Tokyo. :-)

What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?

Hard work, curiosity, empathy, sensitivity and the constant desire of improvement.
