My 60 favorite photographs of 2016

Even though the year is not finished yet, I decided to put together my favorite photographs I've taken so far. I've selected them going through my Lightroom catalogue and looking at the work I did in each month. You will see some photographs that I haven't released yet. Some are portraits and others were taken in different cities... And I usually don't feature that kind of work on my website or social media, but it's there, and they remind me of beautiful moments, therefore, they are meant to be on this gallery.

I'm so thankful for such an incredible year. We've had the chance to be in Paris, Strasbourg in France, all over Norway, Sweden, Berlin and Köln in Germany, Mexico City and Guerrero in Mexico and in just a few days we are off to Iceland. I can only hope for more awesome travel plans for 2017 and lots of creativity on my photography, specially now that I'm going to start second shooting weddings. Happy holidays to everyone and see you next year!

Paris, City of Lights

A couple of days ago we just got back from a five day trip to Paris. This was my fourth time in the city, but since my parents in law came with us we had to explore the main attractions once again. Our first stop was at the Louvre, one of my favorite museums in the world, a place that never gets old and where I discover something new everytime I visit. I have always taken a dslr on my international travels, but this time however, I chose to bring the Fujifilm X100T and my new-old Canon Ae-1 film camera. I have made the terrible mistake of lugging around a heavy dslr while exploring cities, so I decided against that and thought I would give it a try to this little, yet powerful camera. 

Probably the most famous churches in Paris are Notre Dame and Le Sacre Coeur. However, there's a little gem hidden behind the palace of justice, very close to Notre Dame where only a few decide to visit. This church is called the Sainte Chapelle and I think it deserves a quick visit if you happen to be in the city. 

But I still believe that whenever I have the chance to walk around a city the best part is always in its streets. No matter where you look in Paris, you are surrounded by classical buildings full of history, little alleys behind huge wooden doors, cobblestone roads and charming little cafés... that make your trip even more memorable.
