“Photography has been part of my life for many years, first as a hobby,” says Ricardo Catarro, “and being a lover of cinema and various artistic areas, I try to bring all the inspiration in my work as a wedding photographer. I feel an enormous privilege to be able, in one day, to do landscape photography, architecture, product, fashion, portrait and photo reportage. That’s my style, to tell a couple’s day in the most natural way possible as if it were a movie, where they can be transported back every time they see the gallery.”
In 2017, after leaving a job he had trained for, Catarro dedicated himself 100 percent to photography. “The realization I felt in being able to bring all the inspiration from different areas that I am passionate about to wedding photography made me sure of the decision I made. The pandemic, despite having been a temporary brake on the amount of work, was a lever in creativity and a greater search for exclusivity, bringing very good things in my professional career, which ended up helping my growth as a photographer.”
Technically speaking, Catarro uses a Nikon D850 + NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4 and 58mm f/1.4 lenses, and for “different photos” a Fujifilm X-T20 and tilt adapter with a NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 manual focus lens.
