Madrid wedding and elopement destination photographer Miguel Onieva in Spain

As a teenager I enjoyed creating memories in a different, natural and original way. My dream and my hope was to become one of the best wedding photographers in the world. I still did not know how to get it, but I was very clear that I did not want to be a photographer of the bunch. I enjoy photographing people, telling their stories and getting the best out of them. This is where I can further promote the documentary side of this profession. I'm based in Spain and shoot weddings around the whole world. [Madrid Wedding Photographer]

Sergio Cueto - Elopement and Wedding Photographer in Spain

I studied Audiovisual Communication at University, hoping to become a film director…but ended up working as a TV news cameraman. I really enjoyed being in the eye of the storm, capturing pictures for the news that people would later see in their houses. Working as a TV news cameraman means that you need to anticipate, to make technical decisions quickly. You have to know when the decisive moment is going to happen, and get to the right place at the right time: that’s the perfect training to be a wedding photographer! I started my career as a photographer in 2011, and somehow I applied my direct, non-invasive TV news style to my wedding photography. I would say that my style is documentary photography spiced with a bit of creativity I'm father of two wonderful kids. When I’m not photographing, I love to build Lego constructions and film stop motion short videos with them. [Madrid Wedding Photographer]

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way.
