Jewish Couple Photo Session in Barcelona {Kenny & Shoshi}

02/10/2017 / Barcelona

Kenny was ready to ask Shoshi to marry him. But he did not want to just ask the magic question by following the three basic steps of a proposal: to buy a ring, to kneel before the bride, to ask the question “would you marry me?” And wait for the desired “yes”. Finding the most original idea to do the magic question can be complicated even for the most romantic men. Kenny wanted it to be unforgettable and so exceed Shoshi’s expectations. The truth is that Kenny had one of the most original ideas that I have seen in a long time.

It all started on Thanksgiving weekend. Kenny and Shoshi met with friends to go to an escape room. The situation was perfect, everyone knew what was going to happen except Shoshi, who was the only one who was serious about the game trying to find locks, combinations of padlocks, hidden keys… She did not imagine that she would find a proposal ring instead of a key to escape the room.

That day marked a new step on his relationship, which already had a long history. They met while both worked in a summer camp, but did not start to date until three years later. Photographing him I realized the sincerity of their caresses and the smiles of pure complicity.

They came to Barcelona for pure randomness: just because they found cheap tickets to visit the city. But as they were planning their trip, they fell in love more and more of the colors and the character of the city. They came to the conclusion that it is a city that never ceases to amaze. They saw that the Catalan capital can be surprisingly romantic and so they decided to have a couple photo session with me.

We visited Barcelona’s both old and modern neighbourhoods, the alleys and parks of the city: Barceloneta beach, Gothic Quarter, Güell, Citadel and Labyrinth parks. And Barcelona has very little to envy to the elegant and romantic Paris.

Here you can see some of the photos in an eccentric and colorful city, the perfect location for the sweet couple moments of Shoshi and Kenny.

Anniversary Photo Session in New York {Arnaud & Lepus}

28/08/2017 / Asian Couples

fotógrafo de bodas

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York

One year ago I met Lepus and Arnaud for their pre-wedding session in Seville. A few days later I sent them their photos, and they didn’t hesitate to count on me to photograph their wedding in France.

I was happily surprised that I was asked to be their wedding photographer, and even more surprised when they asked me a couple session in New York City, their new place of residence.

Being a witness of their love is like watching a Hollywood movie, the kind of movie that you see with tissues in one hand and an ice cream in the other. Not a sad story but a romantic one, the kind that touches your heart. A true love that has lived on three different countries and three dreamy locations. A couple generous in kisses, caresses and laughs. Love is love, but also the city lights give some inspiration.

Thanks to this photo session I have discovered a couple of things.

NYC is an overwhelming city. It suddenly beats you in your face and knocks you down. The buildings, the traffic, the crowds of people coming and going… One could think that New Yorkers are unfriendly, but actually both NYC and the New Yorkers warmly welcome everyone there. The best way to enjoy the city is to flow, forget about your prejudices, walking with expectant eyes and your camera ready.

The other thing I have learnt is that photographing love and happiness is the same no matter where you are.

From Central Park to Times Square, this city is full of charming spots and it is a great destination for a romantic photo session. I fell in love with Brooklyn Bridge: its architecture, beauty and charm are awesome make it the perfect location to enjoy with the one that you love. We ended the day savoring the sunset, the lights and the reflections on the buildings.

Here is the first year of Lepus & Arnaud’s marriage, and their first story in NYC.

Hear it for New York.

Romantic Engagement Session in Paris {Lorena & Alexis}

23/06/2017 / Engagements

“L’amour est vie”… We were told the walls of Paris.

Not without a reason it has always been called The City of Love. For that reason, because love is life and because there is where Lorena and Alexis live, we decided that Paris was the perfect destination to photograph their engagement session.

It was a great ideas because Alexis is a proud Parisian and Lorena is an art historian. That weekend tour of the city not only allowed us to have some photos of her favorite places, but also we could talk about them, discovering the unknown part of the city to those who live outside Paris.

We lose ourselves inside the Shakespeare & Co bookstore, where it’s not permitted to take pictures (but I finally got a special permission). The Stravinsky Fountain, next to the Pompidou for which Lorena as a great lover of art chose a dress representing a painting of Piet Mondrian; the Sainte-Chapelle with its beautiful polychrome stained glass windows where I was so moved by looking up and seeing them for the first time. And, of course, those other emblematic places that we all know when we talk about Paris.

Pre-wedding in Seville {Arnaud & Lepus}

21/04/2016 / Asian Couples

preboda-alcazar-sevilla-pre-wedding-spain-chinese-couple-elopement-0029Seville has become one of the top destinations for pre-wedding and trash the dress sessions for couples from around the world, as well as for marriage proposals and honeymoon trips.

We shot this pre-wedding in Seville on the eve of Holy Week, so we decided to start very early in the morning to avoid having the streets and locations filled with tourists.

Arnaud and Lepus were in a very good humor and joy throughout the day, although hair and makeup started at 5 in the morning. After some photographs around the Puente de Triana I took the opportunity to show them a “typical Spanish” breakfast: chocolate with churros and porras.

With renewed energy we marched to the Santa Cruz streets and the Alcazar, where we could barely dodge the groups of visitors who constantly approached the couple to photograph them with their brand-new-next-generation-mobile . Some appeared to have never seen a wedding dressed couple.

It was about noon when we finished the session in Plaza de Spain, with our feet tired but happy heart. When we parted I could not imagine that two days later they would ask me to be their wedding photographer in France.

À bientôt | 不久.

Romantic Marriage Proposal in Seville – Spain {Jignesh & Natasha}

07/04/2016 / Asian Couples

paparazzi wedding proposal in seville alcazar gardens

Jignesh contacted me a few weeks ago to ask me if I would photograph a very special moment: his marriage proposal in Seville.

I felt like half a paparazzi, half a FBI agent  y agente del FBI tracking a “target” for photographing a unique moment between two people I haven’t met before. I just had an estimated time and place (The Real Alcazar, one of the most tourist sights of Seville).

I first met Natasha’s sisters, which were accomplices and links of Jignesh in Spain. I watched the coupled from a distance to go unnoticed among the tourists, which I had to avoid to not show up within the frame in the “decisive moment”.

Moment captured!

Luckily, she said “yes”.

Pre-wedding in Rome {Amanda & Ángel}

14/03/2016 / Engagements

They say that if you want your dream to come true, you must first write it down.

Two years ago I desired to shoot a pre-wedding in Rome, inspired by the classic movie “Roman Holiday”… at that time I had a charming couple and a wonderful Vespa to play with, everything but Rome.

Finally, the Universe conspired in favor of my dream (and also, Amanda & Angel’s dream).

In this time we missed the Vespa (it was hard to find it in Rome). We enjoyed a wonderful weekend walking by the Eternal City, chatting and laughing, and also tasting delicious pasta and tiramisu to restore our energy.

I’ll write down my next desire, so the stars can start to align: I wish to photograph a wedding at a beach in Bali.

Well then!

Engagement Session in Seville {Heidi & Vincent}

01/12/2015 / Asian Couples

One of the things that I like to be a wedding photographer is the posibility to meet all kinds of people. Different cultures, different habits but a common denominator: love.

Heidi loves flamenco and every time they travel to Spain their destination is the south, so they decided to make their engagement session in Seville. It was a pleasure to see them laugh constantly and share with them a journey that ended in a traditional tavern in Triana, where they discovered jewels of spanish gastronomy as chickpeas with prawns and bull tail.

A passionate, funny couple, involved to make the session an unforgettable experience. I do hope our paths cross again someday.

Prewedding in Altea {Mercedes & José Manuel}

17/08/2015 / Alicante

“Could you shoot our prewedding in Altea?” – asked me Mercedes and José Manuel.

“Yes, of course!” – I said while reminding how much I like its streets with white facades and the Mediterranean light at sunset.

So we packed up and there we went. We made our place among the tourists who wandered like zombies and enjoyed an afternoon of fun and passion. I am fortunate to work with such energetic couples who aren’t afraid to reveal the love that unites them.

I hope I have managed to reflect the emotions that we felt…

Passion in the kitchen {Gema & Daniel}

04/07/2015 / Engagements

Thank You
for the market and its floor of freshwater
cooking to the sun,
the table and the knife,
the skillet dented, the washed rice (at least seven times);
the wine in their glasses,
so transparent.
Thanks for the fan and its flickering rattle
in the gloom.
For the silver cutlery and the cloth napkins,
the light from the balcony while you read aloud for me
(for the pictures: for looking at me).

but,
especially,
thanks
for your company.

Berna Wang.

*****

It has happened to me before.

The first time I meet with a couple we just end planning their prewedding… and in this case it was easy: when Daniel told me he’s the owner of a restaurant, I immediately visualized them fooling around in the kitchen  🙂

We started the prewedding session in the Parque del Retiro, where Gema y Daniel let themselves be carried away by the sunset… and it was a pleasure to see how passionate they are in every gesture and every gaze.

The second part of the shooting was at Daniel’s restaurant, where there was not only passion but also they were eager to have a lot of fun.

I really don’t know who enjoyed it more: me or them.
