It was almost winter when I met Cornelia, I had just moved to Bellavista, one of the many colorful hills of Valparaíso, so I put my shoes on and let myself free through the passages, in this wandering I found her, she was working in this cute German Resto Bar, she looked happy and full of volcanic energy. That day we crossed very few words, I liked her smile. I went back to that place almost every day, hundreds of conversations passed, we talked about the deep things that move us, we got to know each other, we became friends, we fell in love without notice it, and after three years we hold hands for the first time on a sunny Saturday morning, after a long night of dance, talk, and drinks.  
Since then we became inseparable, we've lived in three cities, on two continents, and we got married. We are meeting people and places, we are discovering our lifes, enjoying big long breakfasts every morning, sharing our experiences and the deepest thoughts with each other, this intimacy is what keeps us in love and determined to stay together, this is the intimacy that I look for when I´m working. "You know is time to get married when you leave the bathroom door open".

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Photojournalism, a Diploma on Digital Image Management, I took a workshop with Mauricio Arias from Chrisman Studios, and a workshop with Martin Sedacca. I also have attended talks from Citlalli Rico, Susana Barbera, Vinicius Matos, Todd Laffler, and Samo Rovan.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Music, I love music, from the delicatessen piano sonatas of Chopin to the electric sounds of Tame Impala. The Beatles is my favorite band. My morning shower It's adorned by the album Salad Days of Mac DeMarco, for the evening showers I preferred Blue Train by Coltrane or The Art of the Ballad by Chet Baker.  
I also learn a lot from the art of Krzysztof Kieślowski, Wong Kar-wai, Emir Kusturica, and many others, but Wes Anderson movies are my preferred "Cinema", Rushmore was the first movie that Cornelia and I saw together. I walk everyday in the forest, at least for half an hour, because it fills me with energy, it is very revitalizing to see the great trees and the life of the forest, especially after many hours in the computer. "On the Road" from Jack Kerouac is still my favorite novel.
