My mother used to be a wedding photographer and very talented pre-photoshop-era hand retoucher. I grew up in a world full of cameras, printed photos and coloured pencils but my personal photography journey started at the age of 16. During the weekends, I usually helped my mother at her weddings, as her assistant. My job was to carry and take care of the equipment; imagine how boring that was for a teenager. So I decided to take some pictures with the telephoto camera, from where I was standing, as I was too shy to get closer to the real action. In the end, my pictures were good enough to have a place in the couple’s photo album. At that moment, I realised what I had to do.
Fifteen years later, I am a Professional Destination Photographer and I am pleased when my pictures keep your feelings alive.
