GUATEMALAN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I LOVE MY JOB, BECAUSE I CAN BE A PART OF THE MOST
HAPPY MOMENTS IN THE LIVES OF THE PEPOLE I WORK WITH.
Some people define it as "the best day of my life" and others as "the first day of the rest of our lives".
For me it’s the beginning of the story of a new home. The day that marks a milestone in the lives of the couple. It’s an extremely important day that deserves to be remembered forever.
The couple, families, friends, many people are involved in the planning of the wedding several months before and this day is the culmination.
The brightness in the eyes of the bride and groom, from the moment they wake up on this special day is very noticeable. That's why I like to be able to start sharing moments with them since the getting ready of the bride. This way we begin to document who are the people close to the couple, who is part of the big day since the bride’s getting ready; hair, makeup and then the dress, veil, earrings and everything. Everyone has in mind that it’s wedding day, but when it's time for the first look when the bride is finally ready, with her wedding gown and all of the other details, there are many mixed feelings all around. Joy, excitement, nerves, and a big mix of emotions. I love being able to share these special moments with family and friends, and capture them in photographs.
On a personal level I like to start communicating with the couple several months before the wedding, so they can tell me about them, their relationship, what are their likes and hobbies, their dreams and goals; and so we can begin to get to know each other in order to capture the best way possible everything they shared with me beforehand.
