I found myself in Switzerland to meet Angelica and Alberto about a year before their wedding. We were getting ready to shoot their portrait session and our talks made me thing how relative geography can actually be.
In our first contact, Angelica told me that her guest list would include passports from all over the world.
They build their life in Switzerland while Angelica comes from the crossroads of East and West, northeastern Greece and Alberto from the other side of the globe, the eternally charming Peru. Friends and family from all over were expected to share in their moments and memories.
This is a story that proves that feelings don’t go by distance.
August came and I was excited to see the mix and match of the different cultures I was about to shoot. There are no barriers when to comes to the happiness of your loved ones, so Angelica and Alberto’s friends had no problem of getting tuned for the amazing party that followed and lasted all night long.
To have an opportunity to tell this story, this wonderfully hopeful story of these people was an experience that can hardly be described by words, so I better let the images do the talking.
I can only wish them every joy and happiness and thank them, once again, for inviting me to be a part of it and capture bits and pieces for them to keep forever.
