Hi I’m Joe, nice to meet you! I’m originally from Peru, South America and I love to take photos and spend time with people. I began photographing weddings right after graduating from college and have had the privilege to travel around the world photographing people and places. I have some interesting stories to tell!
Photography is definitely a major passion because of the unlimited creative possibilities. I love photographing weddings because throughout the day, there’s tears, laughs, hugs and capturing that makes me happy :)
Besides weddings, I enjoy taking portraits. Studio portraits are fun as well as on location or even themed photoshoots. I’ve worked with professional and non-professional models and people who just wanted to build their social media brand. These shoots are fun because we can try different outside-of-the-box ideas . From taking trips to interesting locations for post-apocalyptic shoots to underwater shoots to get that flowy hair or even using my fog machine and lasers, those Instagram portraits are a fun way to spend an afternoon.
When I’m not taking photos, I’m usually traveling! I’ve been very blessed to have been able to travel to many countries around the world but the best part is that I have friends in many of these places so there’s always an excuse to go back and visit. Below I have a small photo gallery of some of the places I’ve visited and some stories although there’s much more on my hard drives waiting to be uploaded!
I also like to build and develop websites like this one. I love to play guitar, play chess and solve Sudoku puzzles. I’m also slowly learning Russian and Ukrainian as well trying to learn how to cook new things. It’s all a work in progress!
