I'M JOSH, A 28-YEAR-OLD EXPERIMENTAL CINEMATOGRAPHER WHO HAS BEEN CAPTURING LOVE STORIES AROUND THE WORLD FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS.

 

I GREW UP IN MEXICO CITY AND FROM A YOUNG AGE, I HAD A STRONG PASSION FOR AUDIOVISUAL ARTS. AT THE AGE OF 9, I STARTED PLAYING THE DRUMS, AND SINCE THEN, MUSIC HAS BEEN A CONSTANT IN EVERY STAGE OF MY LIFE.

 

I STUDIED DIGITAL GRAPHIC DESIGN, AND IT WAS DURING THOSE YEARS THAT I FIRST HELD A CAMERA IN MY HANDS. I STARTED MAKING MUSIC VIDEOS FOR MY BAND, FILMING MY TRAVELS, MY FAMILY, MY GIRLFRIEND— ANYTHING I COULD CAPTURE. HOWEVER, IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE FILMING A FRIEND'S WEDDING IN ANGERS, FRANCE THAT MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH CAPTURING LOVE STORIES. 

WHAT EXCITES ME THE MOST ABOUT FILMING WEDDINGS?

 

SEEING A COUPLE IN FRONT OF MY CAMERA, SO IN LOVE AND FILLED WITH THE DESIRE FOR A PROSPEROUS FUTURE TOGETHER WITH THEIR LOVED ONES, INSPIRED ME TO EMBARK ON THE PATH OF WEDDING CINEMATOGRAPHY. I WAS FORTUNATE TO GROW UP IN A HOME WITH WONDERFUL PARENTS, AND I REALIZED THAT I COULD REFLECT, THROUGH AUDIOVISUAL EXPRESSIONS, THE LOVE I’VE HAD AND CONTINUE TO HAVE.

 

FOR ME, THE WEDDING DAY IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT EVENT AFTER OUR BIRTH, AS IT REPRESENTS A REBIRTH AND A NEW BEGINNING. IT'S TRULY UNDERSTANDING THAT WE’LL PROBABLY SPEND MORE TIME IN THIS LIFE WITH OUR PARTNER THAN THE TIME WE’VE WALKED ALONE. IT'S EXCITING TO BE ABLE TO CAPTURE THOSE UNIQUE AND SPECIAL MOMENTS IN THE LIVES OF TWO PEOPLE WHO HAVE DECIDED TO JOIN THEIR PATHS AND BUILD A FUTURE TOGETHER. 

 

WHAT’S MY FAVORITE MOMENT FROM THE WEDDING DAY?

 

IT'S DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT MY FAVORITE MOMENT IN A WEDDING BECAUSE EACH WEDDING IS USUALLY SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT, AND FAVORITE MOMENTS CAN VARY DEPENDING ON THE EMOTIONS AND EXPERIENCES LIVED IN EACH WEDDING. THE COVERAGE OF THE PREPARATIONS BEFORE THE CEREMONY IS A MOMENT FULL OF EMOTIONS; CAPTURING THOSE INTIMATE MOMENTS AND PRE-CEREMONY JITTERS CAN CREATE VERY EMOTIVE IMAGES. THE CEREMONY ITSELF IS UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT MOMENTS, ESPECIALLY IF IT INCLUDES SPEECHES OR SEGMENTS THAT HIGHLIGHT THE CONNECTION AND LOVE BETWEEN THE COUPLE AND THEIR LOVED ONES.

 

MY BEST EXPERIENCE AS A WEDDING CINEMATOGRAPHER

 

I HAVEN'T BEEN ALONE ON THIS JOURNEY. 8 YEARS AGO, I HAD THE WONDERFUL PRIVILEGE OF MEETING ALICIA, MY GIRLFRIEND, WHO IS NOW MY PARTNER AND SECOND VIDEOGRAPHER IN EVERY PRODUCTION AND EVENT WE FILM. WORKING TOGETHER’S INTERESTING AND EXCITING BECAUSE EVERY PIECE WE CREATE IS A LOVE-FILLED WORK OF ART CRAFTED IN OUR HOME.

 

WE LOVE TRAVELING TOGETHER, BOTH IN MEXICO AND AROUND THE WORLD. EXPLORING NEW PLACES AND IMMERSING OURSELVES IN DIFFERENT CULTURES FILLS US WITH EXCITEMENT AND ALLOWS US TO WITNESS UNIQUE AND SPECIAL MOMENTS. EACH TRIP IS AN ADVENTURE THAT INSPIRES US TO CREATE VIDEOS THAT CONVEY THE BEAUTY AND MAGIC OF EVERY LOVE STORY WE ENCOUNTER ALONG THE WAY. WE ARE THRILLED TO CONTINUE EXPLORING AND SHARING NEW LOVE STORIES THROUGH OUR CAMERAS.

 

IF I HAD TO DESCRIBE THE STYLE OF OUR PRODUCTIONS AND VIDEOS, IT WOULD BE NATURAL AND ORGANIC. OUR VIDEOS ARE SIMPLE DOCUMENTARIES THAT CAPTURE EACH COUPLE’S INTIMACY AND REAL-LIFE MOMENTS, WHERE LOVE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT.

 

THE MOST CHALLENGING ASPECT

 

I’VE ALWAYS FACED DIFFICULTIES IN CONCENTRATING, AND MY RETENTION OF INFORMATION OR LEARNING REQUIRED A DYNAMIC APPROACH RATHER THAN THEORY. FOR THESE REASONS, ACTIVITIES LIKE PLAYING THE DRUMS, PRODUCING MUSIC, FILMING, AND VIDEO EDITING HAVE BEEN EMBRACED IN MY LIFE EMPIRICALLY. ALTHOUGH OVER THE YEARS, I’VE EXTENSIVELY RESEARCHED THESE TOPICS, I’VE NEVER STUDIED THEM PROFESSIONALLY OR ACADEMICALLY. AS A RESULT, LEARNING TO SPEAK ENGLISH HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PENDING SUBJECT IN MY LIFE. SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I DISREGARDED THE IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING IT, I NEVER FELT A REAL NEED TO SPEAK, NEGOTIATE, DIRECT, EDIT, OR CONDUCT A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS IN ENGLISH. THE MOST CHALLENGING ASPECT, WITHOUT A DOUBT, HAS BEEN LETTING GO OF THE INTROVERTED CREATOR AND ARTIST WHO ALWAYS STAYS BEHIND THE SCENES AND DARING TO EXPRESS ME IN BOTH SPANISH AND ENGLISH, LEARNING TO ACCEPT MY MISTAKES IN BOTH LANGUAGES.

 

I’M EXCITED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY, WHICH WILL BE FOREVER CAPTURED THROUGH OUR LENSES.
