“Unity is strength, when there is team work and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” ~Mattie Stepanek
We all found each other by casualty and quickly developed a great friendship.
Working together for a decade has taken us to multiple adventurous in the incredible world of weddings.
We are honoured for the opportunity to play a role in one of the most important and intimate day of your live.
Farawayland Weddings is all of what we love about weddings. Is that fairytale story that we get to create with you in an artistic, authentic and intimate way.
For us, the little details are the most significant.
Isn't just tradition or following some rules, it’s celebrating a day that in whichever way represents you and your life together as a couple.
Consider us your wedding day curators. We know you want breathtaking images and also want to remember your wedding the way it was. Thus, we intentionally navigate the delicate line between documentation and art.
We want to tell your story.
And as you share your story with us, we want to share ours with you in this timeline

Being formally trained as a fashion and fine art photographer, Lucho's style was noticed and requested by brides looking for something different and unique from popular trends.
Basically unknown and never having photographed one single wedding in his life, Lucho shot his first 10 weddings in 2011

Team at the studio 2018
As a team, we strive to create powerful work that communicates to the core of people’s emotions and stories.
We are photographers, videographers and artists. But aside from colleagues, we are friends, spouses, and siblings who understand the heart of humanity. Our culture is as diverse as the jobs we do, as well as the approach we use to create our work.
Each one of us brings individual expertise to our collective creative process.
Together we speak English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Czech, and Azerbaijani (so far!).
