- My name is Miguel Justino and I'm a portuguese-born, australian-raised photographer based in wonderful Guatemala.
You’re probably wondering about this Miguel Justino guy… Well, I guess that would be me. I’m a portuguese-born, australian-raised photographer based in the city of Guatemala, Guatemala.
I was born in ’77, graduating in ’99 in a business area quite distinct from photography yet I’ve been shooting weddings since 2008. Since then I’ve carried out assignments in Europe and Central America, taken on product and real-estate assignments, more weddings, concerts, book launches and other events, corporate portraiture, even surgical procedures, as well as family, newborn and pet portraits. Having said that, at the end of the day, although each area of photography is amazing in it’s own way, it’s the weddings that have always fascinated me the most.
It is always a huge privilege to be a part of such a momentous day in someone’s life. It is truly rewarding to be able document the moments and emotions and to have a positive impact on someone’s life. To make someone happy, to make them relive that happiness through an image, and maybe even more importantly, to be able to relay the beauty of the day and the emotions to those which are yet to come.
That’s what really drives me as a photographer. To be able to convey those moments, personalities and emotions as genuinely as possible, and allowing them to come through in my images in a way that makes them timeless. In order to best achieve this, my personal style involves taking on a documentary/photojournalistic approach to weddings, meaning I prefer genuine and natural moments as opposed to posed photos but I always adapt to what suits my clients’ needs best.
If I sound like what you’re seeking in a photographer, please get in touch via the Contact Us / Contáctanos page or look me up at Fearless Photographers – one of most popular wedding photography directories featuring what are arguably some of the best wedding photographers in the world. I’m fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish, so language won’t normally be an issue.
