Who said being a wedding photographer is easy?!?

When we look back and remember what it was last year, we can´t stop smiling and at the same time think how we have had time to do so many things. Very often I tell Erika that we are living two lives in one. It is obvious that one year has 365 days, but  we can say that 2018 had 730 days for us, hahaha!.

In 2018 we were lucky to photograph a lot of incredible weddings (and organize a few more weddings with our second brand), visit 14 countries (some of them about 4 times as is the case in Italy), are invited to a really nice conferences around the world and also give a lot of workshops. And if all this we add a move to a new house and the launch of our new website for sure many of you are going to think that definitely a year for us has 730 days, hahaha !. (If I tell you that I also broke my tailbone twice in less than 4 months I’m sure you do not believe me anymore, right?)

Photographing a lot of weddings has been an adventure, not only have we traveled through Spain from end to end, but we also visit different countries such as Switzerland, Slovakia or Cyprus where we photograph weddings that we will never forget. We love photographing weddings in Spain, but of course, when a couple from another country proposes to be their photographer, a feeling of immense happiness runs through our entire body. Of course, we can´t forget our dearest Balearic Islands, especially Mallorca, our favorite island. Every wedding there is always unique! .

We started the year visiting one of the most important conferences in the USA and we ended up visiting in less than a week the most recognized conferences in India and Brazil, crazy! Of all of them we take the best, difficult to choose our favorite,  although it is true that we always carry in our hearts the visit to Tuscany and the workshop organized by our friend Fabio Mirulla (Acme) with some of the best Italian wedding photographers.

It has not been easy to create a selection that perfectly describes all the experiences we lived the last year, so when we created this gallery with our Best of 2018, we decided to choose the photos that most impressed us and that had our soul. It is not a selection of our best photos, this is a selection of our favorite ones.

Erika and I want to thank all the friends and family who have supported us throughout the year. From great colleagues who helped us to photograph some of our weddings (Franck Boutonnet, Sanne de Block, Víctor Linares, Javier Rojas & Carlos Santanatalia, we love you!) to big companies like Colorex that made our work shine more than ever.

Thank you friends, 2019 is here and we are going to try to make this a great year!

It´s time to show you our next wedding story. It happened at a small village called Ligüerre de Cinca in the Spanish Pyrenees.

Ligüerre is really special for us, we got married there just 4 years ago, so you can imagine how we are in love with this place. But, this is no the time for talking about our wedding, hahaha!, its time for our friends Lucía & Javier, the main characters of this beautiful love storie.

They are from Madrid and they are living in London, but they decided to organize their wedding and move all their guests to Ligüerre because they wanted to enjoy with everybody for a few days. Yes!, it was a three days wedding and everyone had the freedom to do what they wanted to. In fact, we were in shock when the first day (the day before wedding), we noticed the alcohol beverages were free for everybody, 24hrs/3days, hahaha!, top!

Erika and I, enjoyed a lot photographing this wedding, was super intense, crazy and at the same time very cool and romantic (we cannot forget the Lucia´s wedding dress designed by Beba´s closet, it was amazing)

It´s always a challenge to document a wedding, but weddings like this, is still more. The couple set no rules for us and gave us the chance to work freely to be absorbed by the atmosphere.

I´d like to say thanks to this lovely couple for giving us the opportunity to live an incredible experience at their wedding that we will never forget. Also, we want to say thanks to all Ligüerre Staff for helping us during the whole weekend, without you It wouldn’t have been possible to photograph this amazing storie.

 We can´t forget Sanne de Block for helping us to photograph this wedding, (it was a pleasure Sanne!!).

Hope you enjoy with our selection;

There are moments in life that you would never change for anything in the world. Photographing Yannick and Jame´s  wedding at Castell Son Claret in Mallorca was one of them. Of course, I am sure that the Balearic spirit took control of this couple and all their guests and captivated them. This was one of the most incredible and intense weekends that Erika and I have ever lived this wedding season.

From the beginning, Yannick and all the bridal team were getting ready at Belmond La Residencia, one of the coolest hotel in Mallorca. Belmond La Residencia is located in Deia, in the most impressive side of Mallorca and the views of the Yannick´s Suite were amazing; The Mediterranean Sea and Deia… No words.  Meanwhile, in the other part of the Island,  at Castell Son Claret, James and his best friends were getting ready and spending really funny moments.  Erika and I, decided to photograph each one of them for separate and don´t miss anything, 😉

The day started perfectly and Yannick was marvelous. The incredible Elie Saab  wedding dress was perfect for her (Yannick had two wedding dresses,hahaha) , It only added more and more ingredients to have a perfect day

It seems common to say that a wedding is wonderful, but this one, simply was amazing, not just for decoration, which was spectacular, not only for the ceremony, which was unique and emotional, not only for the place, Belmond La Residencia & Castell Son Claret showed us their finery, but for a lovely couple and  families that will always have a place in my heart.

Also, as every year  we had a very special guests at our weddings. This time was our friend Franck Boutonnet, one of my best friends and best photographers I know in the world. Was a pleasure for me and Erika, learn a lot from him.

We took the best of them and especially of all those people with whom we met throughout the weekend and made this wedding a memorable one. I´d like to highlight the presence and dedication of Charlotte from Magicmed and her wedding planning team who were so helpful, professional and fantastic. And also Annika Fredriksson, who did an excellent job at making the bride and the bride maids shined. Stefan Hollenberg, who created an enchanting atmosphere when he lighted up the dance floor.

Erika and I, are very happy to show you this amazing Mallorca wedding, enjoy!

I love photographing weddings like Marta & Arnau´s wedding, full of pure energy, happiness, love and passion.

 

This amazing couple got married at La Catedral del Mar in Barcelona, one of the most beautiful and best lighted cathedrals I’ve ever visited (I think Catedral del Mar doesn´t need to be introduce it, hahaha) . Afterwards, they celebrated to the máximum with their families and best friends at Masia Egara, a really cool wedding venue close to Barcelona.

Marta & Arnau are definitely one of those couples that I will never forget. The truth is that I must take off my hat before them and say to them thanks a lot for the trust, friendship and understanding they placed on me in such a special day for them.

Marta was so cool. The incredible Santos Costura wedding dress was perfect for her and added more more ingredients to have a perfect day.

I´m sure they will carry Masia Egara in their hearts and they won´t forget all the moments that they lived at their wedding. I remember many moments, especially when I was with Marta and her father on the back seat of their car going to the Catedral del Mar for the ceremony.

Marta & Arnau, thank you for everything, for giving me the opportunity to photograph your wedding in Barcelona, to make a hole in your heart.

Enjoy with our selection

I love my job. It´s wonderful to photograph weddings in so many different places in a short space of time. Although I had visited Zurich a few times, this was a really special one, ;). When I received Adriana and Filip´s email it was a great joy for me that they had chosen Zurich as the framework for their wedding. Also, they decided to celebrate their wedding in one of the most historic and popular Hotel in Zurich called Atlantis By Giardino. This hotel is on the top of the city and you can imagine the views from the rooftop. Take a walk inside of Atlantis by Giardino is the same to remember the history of Zurich from the last 20 years.

For a long time, We were super interested in visiting Balneario de Panticosa for covering a wedding and never before we been lucky to do it because normally our calendar was busy.

When Raquel and Raúl contacted us, we were very happy to know that we would have the chance to finally visit.
But I always say that photographing weddings is something more than photographing a wedding venue. We photograph people and we seize the moment.
