Beside my love for photography I have two other great loves in my life. Her name is Julie, the woman that I adore more and Xoel, our baby boy, the reason for everything for the both of us.
Did you notice the heartbeats at the end of the video from my homepage? Those are Xoel’s. I recorded them the first time I heard them myself. He was still in Julie’s belly at that time and I remember this being such an emotional moment. I never thought I could foster such love for someone I didn’t even meet, and yet I did.
Hey, we haven’t met yet, but my name is Dani Rodriguez and I’m the face behind BRING ME SOMEWHERE NICE. I’m so happy you are here, so let me tell you a bit more about myself: 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.
For years I’ve worked on projects that built my skills, but didn’t fuel my passion, and then one day I discovered Wedding Photography. 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 more than I could have ever asked for.
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 am blessed to say that many times I laughed alongside them, got goosebumps and shared these precious moments together.
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. I’ve also been blessed for my work to be recognised and awarded by renowned prizes. Truly grateful for that, but nothing compares with the satisfaction of all the moments lived and of all the people that my profession made me enjoy.
