About me

Sara and me

¡Hi there! My name is Víctor Herrera. For three generations, photography has been running in the blood of my family.

I’m convinced that love can overcome any obstacule… it doesn’t matter if it’s distance, race, color or language, when there’s love, anything can be possible. Being able to witness that is the main reason why I wedding photography has became my passion.

I’ve been fortunate to share the past 9 years of my life with my wife and best friend: Sara.

 

Recently, a beautiful baby has came to our lives: David. Spending time with him, teaching him what we came to lear over the years, watching him grow and travel all together, really make us happy. We enjoy visiting our friends in La Antigua, Guatemala, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, México, San Diego, California and New York City in the US.

We like to be surrounded by nature and be able to do something in favor of other people. That’s why we’ve been living in a small village in the jungle of Quintana Roo, Mexico for 6 years now. We’ve learnt the Mayan language to get involve with the local people and now, we can spend part of our time doing some comunity and educational work with them and all of those from the small villages close to us.

I’m a big fan of the Star Wars Universe. I also admire the work of Emmanuel Lubezki (a.k.a. “El Chivo, which means “The Goat). His photography in movies like “A Little Princess” and “The Revenant” made me respect and admire him deeply.

There are plenty more things that make my life a delight… the unique taste of peaches from Chiapas, Mexico, a glass of fine red wine, the ocean’s breeze, the view of a gorgeous forrest, how imposing wolves are and how they take care of their pack, and also, look up to a sky full of stars to remind me how small I’m really are.

However, the best way to get to know me is through my work. That’s why I share this select gallery of my pictures.

I’m well aware that, in each wedding, I have a tremenduous responsability: conserve the moments that take place during one of the most important days of a  person’s life, preserve the memories that will become a heritage for future generations.

That’s my pledge to you once I become your wedding photographer

I can’t promise that you will look impeccable and beautiful in each one of your pictures. Beauty to me comes from the essence of one’s person and that’s what I strive to capture

I also can’t promise you that I will be able to photograph every single instant of your wedding day, but rest assured that I will be giving you my all to be able to tell your story through my vision and perspective as a photographer

I wish to make you happy with my work, but to do so, it’s essential, crucial, that you place your trust completely in my ability to do photography and allow me to express my style freely

Without that, I’m afraid I’m not the wedding photographer you’re looking for

A life without memories it’s a lost heritage

Víctor Herrera
