Here’s a small sample of our style, which combines fine art photography with a signature photojournalistic eye to produce a final visual product of high aesthetic and conceptual quality that is recognised internationally.
The key moments, shifts in focus, attractive compositions, varied points of view … this is all done to achieve an emotionally rewarding result that captures a fantastic day forever.

Concept

HANDS-ON RETOUCHING

Our studio concept enables us to be fresh at every wedding, giving all our time and more to whatever needs to be done to achieve a perfect result in every shot and in the finished product.Our post-production editing is a hands-on process as sensitive as the timings for chemical developing. We take an unhurried approach, photo by photo, not using any digital methods to speed up the process. This is the only way we can assure the quality that we demand and that we want to offer you.

THE KEY MOMENTS

Capture the key moments in split-second glimpses, situations, emotions. Our high-quality documentary style portrays the key moments in a fresh, spontaneous and dynamic manner, with no forced poses or recreated scenes. You can enjoy the day, while we do the work of immortalising it in an unintrusive way, focused on making every shot aesthetically attractive. The people in the camera’s eye and the people behind the lens: everyone striving for excellence.

More about us

EXCLUSIVITY

Because we are a small studio for wedding photography, we cannot meet every request for our services. As a result, we must decline events that are not booked with enough advance notice. However, our small size also enables us to give you the very best customised service, with levels of quality and dedication that are exclusive and impossible to equal.

EXPERIENCE

Our more than 25 years of experience in wedding photography began with courses, study grants, undergraduate degrees and master’s programmes in audio-visual communication. Endorsed by professionals as prestigious as the art directors of the Magnum Agency. Always innovating without ever forgetting the essential magic of chemical photography, which is our background.
