xx Elaine and Jorge Borges-Ibanez
Passionate Wedding Photographer.
We love people and are passionate about wedding pictures! My background is in fine art having worked for 20 years as an artist, exhibiting and painting in oils and graphic media. My granddad was a wedding photographer too, and my great granddad also a photographer, printing his pictures on glass. My sister is a landscape photographer and my son an acclaimed music, travel, and magazine photographer, so it must be in our blood!
Jorge is a talented videographer and editor, whose background is in Cuban national TV working on dramas and films, doing sound design for large stage productions, concerts, news, and conferences. He is also our IT techie and is brilliant with electronics too! He is also a passionate Salsa dancer!
Jorge speaks fluent English, Spanish and Italian. I speak fluent Greek, and reasonable Spanish, German & French, and understand a bit of Italian.
We started covering weddings in 2000 and set up our original website around that time, rebuilding it in 2004. We decided to add this one late 2009 as I don't have time to learn how to do complex web-design and this one by websites for photographers is so easy to build and update!
*At the end of 2012 I received FIRST prize in the INTERNATIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS EXCELLENCE AWARDS! The brief was to submit 5 images from the same wedding that showed the excitement and emotions of a wedding day. Am totally bowled over that I actually won it! The $1,000 prize that came with it was wonderful too!
*Earlier the same year I won Press and PR photographer of the year with the Society of Professional Photographers International.
* Another bit of good news too, as am also to be included in a book of award winners from this street photography contest!
