Dani & Mishka
We are a married couple from Spain and the USA. We met when Mishka spent a year studying abroad in Dani's hometown of Murcia, Spain. We started as friends and then our relationship bloomed into romance after a trip together to Ireland in 2011.
After a short stint of living apart from each other, we decided to move somewhere new to put down roots and start a new life. Our adventure started in Mexico and we began moving south. When we landed in Guatemala, we immediately fell in love with Guatemalan people, colors and landscapes. From then we started building our new life on Lake Atitlan. We lived on the lake for 5 years before moving to Antigua to be closer to most of our work.
We both share a passion for tasty food, travel, good conversations, cinema, TV shows and, of course, photography. We do literally everything together. In 2017, we decided to get hitched on Lake Atitlan in the presence of our favorite people on earth.

In Rangefinders words:
In September of 2019 we were named 1 of the 30 Rising Stars of Rangefinder Magazine. This was a dream come true for us. This award is like the Oscars of the wedding industry! It is a huge honor to be on that list with so many talented photographers. Most professionals that we followed & admired when we started had won this award.
Curating a selection of 30 photographs of the 5 years we had been shooting was one of the hardest things we have ever done. We spent weeks going through all of our weddings, selecting the best & reducing the number of photos little by little till we reached 30.
Fun story here. Mishka was pregnant with our little Emma when we submitted the application, and the night we found out we won we went out for dinner to celebrate. Mishka couldn't finish her plate, which we thought it was weird since she doesn't like to waste food. Later that night she started having contractions and less than 24h later Emma was born! It was like she was waiting to join us only until we finally found out that we won!
