Tell us a little about yourself??

Photography is my passion and my work, without passion you only attain a certain level. I have been a photographer for 15 years. I love to photograph people, the perfect picture for me is capturing a person in his own environment.

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

I like to add value to a wedding. Showing images that are full of life and desire, creative, happy and precise. I’d like to think these are the most beautiful pictures of our lives.

Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

It was a special and unrepeatable day. It was a mixture of fantasy and madness, the couple were outstanding. During the ceremony I would realised it would be a fantastic day. Later we got on a boat and the photos were just so special. I created a direct relationship with the couple meaning all the moments we had worked perfectly.

I love that every wedding and every couple is different.

Do you have an approach to a wedding?

I approach a wedding with high levels of concentration and to have the ability to see things before they happen. You don’t always know the people or couple so it’s also important to get in tune with them.
