I was thinking the other day, that I might need to get me some lighter gear to carry around, I’ve always thought you never know what can come up on your way, and I am not that big fan of cell phone photography. Even though some great images can be done with them, I might sound a bit outdated.
It’s been a long time since I’ve worked an event photoshoot, this wedding took place at Los Farallones Hotel, here in El Salvador, it’s well known for it’s beautiful views.
Noreen and Nelson took their time to plan it, since it’s been a difficult time this year for these kind of events, only a few were invited to this lovely ceremony, and it was made with special details which showed their love and affection.
We started really early that day, Noreen got make up and hair done in San Salvador, I was worried that it would not last until the end of the day, we live in a warm and humid environment.
She came out looking really pretty.
Later on, we drove down to the beach resort, I can tell you it’s a bit difficult to use a mask in that weather, but with good hidration, things become a little bit easier to handle in those cases.
The bridesmaids arrived and helped her change into her gorgeous wedding attire.
When the ceremony was about to start her parents came in to wish her all the best.
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
May all your dreams together become a reality!
It has been kind of a slow year when it comes to weddings, my friend Karen asked me to help her with another one, and somehow, these events are so unique.
We first met with Arline and Ronald a few days before their big day, and you could see such chemistry between them that we knew that our images would turn out wonderfully!
El Salvador is a country well known nowadays for it’s history of recent violence. This may be the only reason why it’s known for worldwide.
But for us, citizens moving in our daily chores, it’s also the place where we try to develop other skills.
Perhaps for me, I’ve found my nest in photography. It started as something to play with while being alone for some time, in Barcelona a few years back, as it turns out I had something I could use to freeze moments, places, people, etc.
After developing the first few films, which by then I had found a place where I could get good quality for less than 6 euros, I was seeing something that made me happy, satisfied in ways I couldn’t do before.
Further down the path, I decided it was time to go deeper into the subject, I wanted to experiment, I wanted to try lights, to try exposures, to capture other things besides the usual stuff…
Well, it’s an exercise, the whole time is a working progress, in which I still learn.
I am thinking of where I want to go, what else there is to explore in the field, and believe me when I tell, that so far it’s the most satisfying thing for me to do.
To see others happy with my work, makes me happy too…inexplicably happy…
