Did you hear the song of the slideshow on my homepage? The heartbeats at the end of the video are from this little boy, Xoel, the greatest baby in the world. He was still in the belly of his mother, Julie, when I recorded it.
Hi, my name is Dani Rodriguez. The wedding photographer behind BRING ME SOMEWHERE NICE. I was born in Spain. I lived in Málaga, Barcelona, Ibiza, Amsterdam and Berlin, where I finally settled in. I have been living in Berlin for more than ten years now. Here I met Julie, the woman of my life and the mother of my wonderful son Xoel. I actually met her at a wedding in Cologne while I was taking pictures of a wedding, but don’t worry, she wasn’t the bride.
Working in many different projects in which I wasn’t very satisfied with, I found my passion in the Wedding Photography. You probably ask yourself why? I have falling in love with taking photograph of all kinds of emotions and at a wedding there are always full of them. Full of intimate and special moments. Experience and document one of the most important days in many people’s life, being a witness of so many emotions and to do that for a living is just a dream to me.
I join people in very special moments, where all their loved ones come together at the same place, at the same time to celebrate amazing times with them.
I have experienced many intimate and emotional moments at weddings and cried and laughed behind my camera.
I consider myself a very social person, I love being with friends and sharing good times and true moments that makes us all happy. Photography allows me also to express my inner world. A world of emotions, sensibility and curiosity of human relations.
Everything that happens at weddings and elopements is real. That is something I love to document. To know that I am creating something that has such a value to someone else and which will remain with them forever.
I have never been so satisfied and happy with my work. It is also a bonus and really satisfying when your work is being recognized and awarded by great renowned prizes but most of all, by the couples that I have the pleasure to join.
