lead photographer

I was born in Colombia. I moved to Melbourne, and with a background as a Marketing Specialist and Graphic Designer, I started my degree in Photography. From the start, I was drawn to Documentary Photo Imaging. But it wasn’t until creating my first two photo-books that this path started gaining traction.

I began working documenting international projects in NYC and Shanghai and was fortunate enough to exhibit my work in both places as well as in Melbourne. This path ultimately nourished and developed my storytelling art, and once my friends started getting married, it was like a match made in heaven.

One thing you should know about me is that I like real people, the ones celebrating their love for each other. The ones embracing their commitment for the sole purpose of creating a life together. The ones who know who they are and what they want.

There is nothing like telling the stories of souls who embrace their weirdness and quirks. The ones who might feel overwhelmed by a camera but that ultimately rely on each other support and trust me enough to see through the surface and capture the amazingness that happens when they are together.

I love what I do. I feel very honoured to know that I get to play such an important part in my couple’s life. I am taking the portraits that will hang on their walls for their entire life, and that will be passed on to their children and grandchildren. I get to create history; that is my purpose in life.
