And that´ s enough of talking about myself in third person 😉

Hi there!, that’s me, happily available to shoot you from 1988 😉

Hello! Im Cristina !

Short story: Im a Fine Art Wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer who has been a photography freak from 2001, and a profesional photography freak from 2010. Photography has give me the opportunity to travel the world and also to live and work in Spain, Greece, Uk, Sweden and France. 

As for the long story: Im “mañica” from Zaragoza, Spain. Was there where I fell in love with landscape photography in an exhibition when I was around 14 years old. I wanted to recreate those amazing landscapes myself where to get lost, so I saved every penny for my first bridge camera and devoured all courses I could find on photography techniques. By then, photography had become my main mean of expression and I started diving into portrait, and again, I was trapped. Every spare minute was to hang out with my camera.

By then I had realized i would never be happy without having photography by my said to express myself.

Then I moved to Madrid to study Fine Arts and the second year I got analogue photography subject and the lab became my temple. However although I am deeply in love with the charm of analogue photo process and aesthetic results, I kept on digital till today. I completed my Fine Arts degree in Greece specialised in Arts of the Image, where I met my partner in crime, Panos, the most beautiful soul. I lived and worked in Uk as a photographer and a commission painter for a Uk based company, and moved to Sweden where I worked for 6 years as a full time Wedding, portrait, lifestyle and Corporate-Press photographer. 
In 2019 we decided to taste France, and moved to, in my opinion, one of the most photogenic countries full of castles, delicious fromages and heaven sent gateaux.

Fine Art Photography


I have been a
Fine Art conceptual portrait photographer since 2006. I crave so much for good stories that creating them through photography became my purest passion.

Portrait & Lifestyle photography

On parallel to my development as a Fine Art, Portrait and wedding photographer, I started getting fascinated with Lifestyle PhotographyI simply got borderline obsessed with extracting the extraordinary out of the ordinary, with the beauty in the simplicity. Turning a simple day-life scene in something that convey so much feeling that keeps you absorbed, just by conjugating the right way light, perspective and mood makes my world go round.

Wedding photography

Wedding photographer in France, Europe and beyond

I shot my first wedding in 2010 and I took this gig full time in Sweden in 2015, which was the best thing I could ever do. Wedding photography combines the three key elements I love in photography; a story, room for creativity, and emotion. And all that, happening in a festivity of joy and happiness. What else can you ask for in life as a job?  My love for weddings is a living thing. 

Corporate photography

Was during my 6 years stay in Sweden where I extended my services to corporate photography due to the growing number of inquiries from companies requesting event coverage and corporate photography. I collaborated with multiple private companies and with the public sector documenting the social-cultural events of my town for the main local newspaper. Now, I put my skills at the service of breton companies for their communication purposes.
