I met Adrien and Anna in 2010, in Romania.
After that, we met in France, Serbia, Austria, Hungary and Tunisia.
They got married in New Caledonia first and then in Austria, where they live.
And it was probably the most multicultural wedding I've ever seen.
We spent a beautiful weekend in the Austrian countryside, camping near a lake, with friends from all over the world.
The dress code? Traditional clothing and flip flops ♡
In March, Cindy contacted me to spend some days in Granada with us. She also wanted an engagement shooting.
And she also wanted to take advantage of the shooting to... announce her fiancé that he's going to be a father!
It was a very special moment with this couple and an honor to be a photographic witness.
This image has been waiting in my hard drive for a while because I was thinking of doing a tutorial with it.
I've opened it again today and decided to finish it doing something different from what I usually do. And at the end, I really like the result!

Anne asked me to take some pictures of her beautiful belly in October, as memories and to prepare cards for the family. Not even a week after the photos, their baby girl was born!
This started as a simple test and ended up being my favorite retouch of 2016.
Thank you www.chadbalentinephotography.com for letting me use the before and after for my portfolio.
Elena and Manu are very good friends and, most of all, they have been my really first marriage as a photographer.
So I was more than excited when they told me that they were having a baby soon and that they wanted some pictures.

Two different results for this portrait, one keeping the effect of the red light and one neutralizing it.

In the middle of the spanish desert, between Zaragoza and Lleida, every summer, for a week, there is a community that builds itself upon Burning Man principles.
I’ve known about Burning Man years ago but never looked deeply into it before 2013.
That year I was going to Australia, I was meeting friends there. One of them suggested going to Burning Seed, the regional australian Burning Man.
It has been a beautiful discovery, a new way to see the world.
So, in 2014, we decided to go together to Nowhere.
The two burns are following the same principles but are quite differents, while in Australia everything happens in a forest, with tree and shades and a nice weather, the challenging climate of Spain in summer, the dust and the strong wind contribute in creating an ephemeral atmosphere.
It's a completely new world that creates and destroy in a week, leaving no trace, as one of the principle: when leaving the site must be exactly as it was before.
People are free to be exactly what they dream to be, everything is magic.
And you can build your own experience, from deciding to have a week of yoga and meditation, unconditional love and personal development, to have a crazy week of dance, party, no sleep and unconditional love (yes, that's a constant).
So my objective in 2015 was to document this unusual and mystical world through the eye of my camera but a family emergency forced me to leave the festival before the end.
That was my 2015 unfinished project:
And here we are, in a month I'll be here again, looking forward to this new experience, ready for the challenge, the laughs, the music, and, of course, the unconditional love.
This year I decided to celebrate Songkran, the Thai festival for the new year.
I decided to celebrate it in Chiang Mai.
And I decided I wanted to make a documentary photographic project of it.
The Songkran festival celebrates the Thai New Year in April and for three days, all the street in Thailand are filled with people, young and old, pouring water on each other in the world biggest water fight.
Googling around, I wasn't able to find some good tips for a photographer so I just tried using my imagination and it went great.
Natalie contacted me through modelmayhem to have a couple of images retouched. She is already beautiful so the work was easy and I had the freedom to do what I wanted with the retouch. I've done a little bit of skin cleaning, hair, makeup, and color adjustment.
