Many times I have wondered what lead me to make wedding photography after so many years of working as an Art Director. Something that was so far away from me, and being only 27 years old. Now I understand why. After sharing and enjoying hundreds of weddings, I understand what is being celebrated: LOVE. It is wonderful to see how the members of the family and friends prepare themselves to join the bride and the groom in their special moment, how they travel, and take care of every detail so that that night is perfect . I´ve seen 90 year old people flying from the US in order to be in their nephew´s wedding. I´ve seen a mother crying deeply moved during her speech, because life gave her, after a long illness, the possibility of being in her son´s wedding. I´ve heard many couples saying they had gone through a lot of hard moments, but they were there, still together, hand in hand, taking care of each other. I take photos of pure love. Not only between members of a couple, but also between parents and their children, brothers and sisters, friends, etc. I have a wonderful job and I can´t help feeling moved in each coming wedding, because in each one life reminds me why I am alive. My name is Josefina, film maker, photographer and Rwanda Weddings´ founder. Thank you for letting me be part of a day that involves so many feeling. Josefina Photographer, founder & CEO

Muchas veces me pregunto qué me llevó a hacer fotografías de Bodas después de tantos años de trabajar como Directora de Arte en cine y publicidad. Algo tan ajeno para mí, con recién 27 años. y un tanto descreída en cuanto al compromiso civil. Ahora lo entiendo. Después de compartir y disfrutar cientos de bodas, entiendo lo que se está celebrando. Entiendo que se está agasajando al Amor, de una manera desbordante, con los afectos más íntimos que se preparan, viajan, se ocupan que esa noche sea una noche increíble. He visto gente de 90 años volar desde EEUU para estar en la boda de su sobrino, he visto una mamá llorando, porque la vida le había dado la posibilidad, después de una larga enfermedad, de estar en el casamiento de su hijo. He escuchado a muchas parejas decir que han pasado momentos durísimos pero que siguen ahí, mano a mano, comprometiéndose a cuidarse el uno al otro. He escuchado amigos hablar en rincones con los novios, augurando una vida llena de dicha, como lo planificaban de niños.

Fotografío amor, en el estado más puro. Y no sólo entre parejas, sino entre padres e hijos, hermanos, amigos, sobrinos, ñietos. Mi trabajo es maravilloso y no dejo de emocionarme con cada boda pronta a venir, porque la Vida me vuelve a dar un recordatorio del por qué estamos vivos. Soy Josefina, cineasta y fotógrafa. de Vida. Gracias por hacerme parte.
