You have not introduced yourself yet…

You are right! My name is Jesus and maybe I didn’t mention it before but I come from Spain. Four years ago, I took the decision of leaving Andalucia (in the south of Spain) to begin a new adventure here in France and, from that day, I’m living at Paris.

Talking about the photography, the story is quite simple actually. Due to my presence into my friend’s wedding, I began to be interested in the wedding photography. I started to think about the kind photos I would like to be done in my own wedding day so, equipped with a little compact camera, I shots some photos.

From that day, I began to looking for more information, learning different techniques and how I could use them. Once I tried all of them, I selected those which fit into my photography style.

I always try to avoid posing. I like the human side of the photography, I like natural pictures. I don’t want a beautiful picture that is clearly posed.

But, which is your style?

That is a good question. I’ll answer it in a minute but first I would like to make the difference between “before the wedding day” and “the wedding day”.

First we have the day when the engagement session will be done. Together, we will chose the best place to shoot the couple photos. There, I’ll guide you with small instructions to get the best photos. However, sometimes it’s the couple who take the initiative of posing in a certain way o placing at a specific location. From this spontaneity is where the best pictures come from! Remember that this session is made by YOU and for YOU.

Later, we have the wedding day. If you ask me about the style I’ll use during that day I’ll say photo-journalism. All along you wedding day, except for the photography session I’ll make with the couple after the ceremony, I’ll try to go unnoticed (as much as possible). My goal is to capture all those great moments in your wedding, not to be stopping the couple every two minutes asking them to pose. Don’t worry about the photos; I’ll be responsible for taking amazing pictures.

Wait, wait, I have some questions: first, I would like to do the engagement session in several places and I can not choose one, what would we do?

Don’t worry, on the engagement day we can do the session everywhere you want, if you want to go to several places we can go, for sure. I’ll be at your disposal.

Understood, and talking about the photos taken during the wedding day, could you please give me more information?

Yes. When I pick an album up with dozens of photo correctly done (talking about exposition, focus, etc) with people posing but transmitting you absolutely nothing about their feelings, I don’t like it at all. I just get bored looking at it. What I try to do is that every one of my photos tell a story, from the first to the last one. I want every photo to make you stop and relive that moment. After all, once the wedding day is finished, that moments won’t be repeated again. It’s my responsibility to make them last forever in the best way possible.

And how many photos will you deliver me?

I will give you min 500 photos in digital format at the highest quality. Of course all the delivered photos are already retouched. I always prefer to provide all the images and letting you decide which ones are your favorites.

How long are you going to take the deliver the photos and album?

About two-three weeks. From the moment they are ready I will contact you by mail giving you the way to access to the private gallery I will have already created for you. At the same time, I’ll call you to have a meeting and give an USB key with all the photos and the album.

I saw you make both black&white and color photos. What do I do if I have some photos in color and I want them in B&W?

Don’t worry about that. You will receive all the pictures in color and all the pictures in B&W also

Being honest to you I have been checking the job of several photographers, why must I choose you?

This question is a little more difficult to answer. When I decided to become a professional photographer I wanted to specialized in wedding photography, because it’s what I like the most. I’m not interested in being the best photographer in the world, but becoming one of the best wedding photographers. I have my own style and I insist my clients a lot to visit my web page and see my photos. Because the kind of client I’m looking for is the client who shares with me the same opinion of what a perfect wedding photos should look like. If we agree at this point, I can offer my clients a product that perfectly satisfies their desires.

 My advice: take your time, compare the work of several photographers and follow your instinct to choose the photographer who can propose you exactly what you are looking for.

What if I live in another city that is not Paris, even another country?

 I take pictures all over the world! If you don’t live in Paris just send me a mail and we will find quickly a solution.

I guess you speak several languages.

Yes, Spanish, English and French.
