I still can’t explain why I’m so into walking around wedding parties with a camera around my neck. Maybe is because I love hearing people’s love stories, and meet crazy souls who were able to find each other.

I truly believe that love is the most delicious ingredient in any cooking recipe, and it’s the same for flming — when there’s love both in front and behind the lens, videos do come out better. I have a very simple approach to storytelling, I believe it’s not expensive gear or super cinematic shots what brings emotion to a story. So instead of using a large set of audio and lighting equipment, I embed myself and my camera into every party and catch unexpected moments from the inside.

What I appreciate the most about this line of work: the freedom and joy of capturing the fun, unexpected and heartwarming side of something as beautifully unstructured as a love story.
