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]

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]

Malaga wedding photography by Jesus Merida, of Andalusia Spain

Hello, my name is Jesús Mérida and I am a wedding photographer. After dedicating myself to advertising photography for a long time I decided to look for something more than still lifes that didn't transmit anything beyond aesthetics. I was always attracted to the photography of Jean loop Sief, Elliot Erwing. . . and other great photographers of the time for the spontaneity and feelings they took in their snapshots. It is precisely this that gives me absolute satisfaction within wedding photography. Another source of inspiration is street photography. To know that the moment is unrepeatable, that it is 100% natural. My main objective is that all the moments of the wedding are real, without preparations, without posing. I love this idea of being true, faithful to life and of course to my partners. That's why my style fits perfectly into photojournalism or documentary photography of weddings. I consider myself a self-taught person, although I have done several workshops. I learned the Light in a studio and always going out with the camera. Today I devote myself entirely to photography, it's my way of life. I am a very happy person thanks to my family and photography. My city is Malaga, in southern Spain. I work mainly here although I travel anywhere in the world. [Malaga Wedding Photographer]

It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible .

Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more
While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more
