So we were between weddings, editing at home, in the 1st of September, when we received an email from Rangefinder Magazine saying we were picked as one of the 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography in the world and we could not thank Rangefinder Magazine more for this recognition. This caught us completely by surprise and we just couldn’t believe it even after reading the email for several times…
A few months back from that, we learned that we were nominated to enter a submission for this year’s selection and that alone was such an honor and surprise as we still remember the first editions of this award and we never even considered the idea of being amongst the nominees! To have that recognition from other photographers (you know who you are and we can never thank you enough!) was reason enough to be more than ecstatic! This year nominees were more than 200 and we never, ever thought we would be included in the final list, so this is an incredible honor and we are so completely humbled to be amongst so many amazing talents.
We’re very passionate about photography, and through the years we’ve been shooting weddings, we always tried to make pictures that are meaningful to us and our clients. The main aim in our photography, more than getting pretty portraits on the wedding day, is to capture fun, emotional and strong candid moments, which you can never know when will occur. This is our greatest challenge and also what keeps us motivated at every wedding and now, this nomination has strengthened our confidence in this approach.
We are immensely grateful to every one that trusted us as their photographers. We’ve been lucky enough to have met so many wonderful and enthusiastic couples along this journey and that is one of the main reasons why we love our job so much.
Finally, we couldn’t finish without congratulating all other nominees, it´s overwhelming to reach this distinction amongst such an eclectic and talented group of photographers. You can check their RF galleries here and the Rangefinder Magazine article here.
And now, these are the 30 pictures we selected and that made all of this possible!
