Hello! My name is Nestor David Meneses; I was born in Santander, Colombia and lived all my life in Bogotá, where I studied Visual Arts for 5 years. Back in 2008 I left Colombia to find a Paradise where I can live doing what I love: To photograph the essence of people. I consider myself a very sensitive person, and over my 10-year experience as a professional photographer I had the pleasure to witness and captured more than 500 love stories from couples from all around the world, that have trusted my extense background and skills as an artistic “story-teller”. If you choose me as your Photographer I will capture your story with my soul, heart, unique vision and “special” sense of humor!.
Iʼm so in love with my wonderful wife Connie who actually helps us a lot with some of the administrative duties. Iʼm actually also a “cool dady” (my Teenager son “Jose Pablo” can testify that). I also love my three dogs (Catrina, Chavela, and El Patrón), my pet bird “Vicente”, Capoeira, Seafood, Burgers… and of course: BEING IN LOVE!

I’m from Mendoza, Argentina currently living in Playa del Carmen. My motivation for travel and learn about other cultures brought me into this beautiful Paradise where I’ve been living for more than 8 years. My passion and love for life and wedding photography help me tell wonderful stories that make the people in these photos fall in love with my work. I consider myself a sweet, charismatic, and fun lady.
I love good food, good wine, and good company. My three sweethearts are my cats, specially my good friend Mechi, my first rescued cat.
My other passion is dance! I love dancing tango and salsa which are a clear reflection of my personality. Choose me as your photographer and not only you will have breath-taking photos but… will you dare to dance a Tango with me?
As well as my “little bro” and partner Nestor, I was born in Colombia where I studied Architecture and right after graduating, left my beloved country pursuing love and following my dreams. I have lived in Mexico, France and currently USA (Miami), from where I manage all the commercial aspects of the company.
Besides my passion for arts, a few years ago I started a new career path in the Digital Marketing industry.
