SURF CITY EL SALVADOR PRO

The World Surfing Leage (WSL) made its very first stop in El Salvador this past week in Punta Roca, known for having the best righthand point break in Central America.

Too bad we got hit by storms these past few days which made the conditions a bit too difficult to start the tournament right on schedule. So the pressure was on to make the best out of it.

Maybe next time Punta Roca will show itself for what it really is.

I got the chance to go and take a few shots both times I went. Still I’m learning a lot about the sports I wish I could have learnt when younger.

EL ÚLTIMO Y NOS VAMOS (THE FAREWELL CONCERT)

This had me with mixed emotions… On one hand, just the thought of being their official photographer through the years, this time having the chance to document their last concert… The very last one.

On the other hand, having the honor of covering their most important venues, being a part of it all through my lens… I feel grateful, and will always be.

The farewell venue happened at the Black Coyote Theater, it felt most like an MTV Unplugged (sort of), but absolutely electrifying! The crowd’s reactions and interactions were just there, it all had me jumping around with my camera while capturing those moments.

Unforgettable.

I specially like to thank my dear friend Aaron Sztarkmann (the greatest bass player there is) for putting such job on my hands and eyes.

And so it all began…

WEDDING IN APANECA

I have decided to review my not so old material, and I ran into this folder from 2015, I found these lovely photos I did while working with Pixelarte.

I think it was probably one of the first weddings I took pictures of (while that photography project lasted).

These are the pics of Rafael & Gaby’s wedding!

ARLINE & RONALD

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!

KATYA & ENRIQUE

My colleage and friend Cristina Mendoza asked me to help her to photoshoot in a wedding, a small intimate ceremony and party.

The ceremony took place at the parrish from UCA (University of Central America).

It was simply decorated with beautiful flowers and good taste.

Katya and Enrique make a happy couple, they were surrounded by their loving family.

We wish them the best in the future to come!

Recent Trip to Antigua Guatemala

Antigua Guatemala has a magic of its own, this city was founded during the Spanish colonization, becoming the Capitanía General de Centroamerica or Kingdom of Guatemala. It’s well known for the good preservation of its old architecture dating from the 1500 century.

It is a 6 hour drive from San Salvador, through the capital city of Guatemala. We’ve been going there quite often since childhood.

It’s also a well visited destination for tourists from around the world, their people are really kind and friendly.
