Discovering El Born – Barcelona wedding photographer
El Born district of Barcelona is one of the city’s most charming neighbourhoods. Narrow streets, plants and lovely cafes is what you will discover if you like going off the beaten path, away from La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter. The area has maintained a high degree of local life.
It’s a beautiful place with quiet, intimate atmosphere. Hence why I met Natalia and Armando for their engagement photoshoot exactly there.
Natalia and Armando met as they had a mutual friend, but what actually happened is Armando sent Natalia a Facebook message 7 years ago saying he liked her pictures (her sister is a photographer so she had really really cool pictures!).
They started talking and soon they realised they couldn’t stop, so they texted all day, every day. They meet a few weeks after in real life and this was the beginning.
Love is art
Art is the best way of self-expression and we share that passion, so it’s really important to us and really brings us together.
What the future holds
Plans for the future: no idea! We have so many dreams, being together and building a home, working a lot, travelling so much!
