Hello!

I was born in Amsterdam in 1983, but I grew up here in Catalunya, where I still live.
For more than 10 years, I have devoted myself to documentary photography and artistic photography, having photographed in all kinds of situations and getting prizes, exhibitions and having received international recognition. As wedding photograher I apply everything I have learned in my personal reportages with the aim of creating a unique memory that will last through the years. Smiles, hugs, emotions, fun … these are the moments that I capture with my camera. For me the only way to re-live such a special day is through real instants, so I try to avoid posed and forced photographs. I like good photography and that’s why I always want to return home with the best result: Pictures with impeccable aesthetics that at the same time document true moments.

Burn Magazine, DOC!, Foto a Foto, Bonart, Descobrir Catalunya,Fotografia Magazine, F-Stop Magazine, Piel de Foto, Lens Culture, Positive Magazine and Ojo de Pez, are some of the media in which I have published.
