Eugenio Wilman, The Wedding Traveller, is one of the newest additions to SnapKnot’s list of Boca Raton, Florida photographers! Learn what makes Eugenio have a unique style when capturing artistic wedding photos:
1) Tell us a bit about yourself.
The Wedding Traveler was created by a visceral fusion between my love of travel and my passion for photography. I consider myself to be a virtual artist who expresses through various styles: painting, Motion design, photography and my deepest emotional way of looking at life.
I have always driven my artistic work in synchronicity with beauty and emotion; with the real and imagined; with creativity and the now. Each wedding for us is an adventure, cultivated from my photographic perspective, that we take with great responsibility yet enjoy immensely. We feel extremely fortunate to be a part of such an important day for the couples we photograph. One of my goals is to create lifetime memories in an artistic fashion way.
2) Why did you choose to become a photographer?
My passion for being a photographer arose from a profound desire for visual storytelling, capturing its important moments, and – most importantly – sharing that passion with the world!
3) How long have you been a photographer?
For more than 6 years!
4) How would you classify your style of photography?
It’s a very difficult question because I feel I’ve loved photography all my live. When I was at the university studying Advertising, I had the opportunity to take a photography class and that’s when I bought my first camera. Also I went to Europe for the first time 3 years ago. When I returned from my trip, I posted a few photos on Facebook. A friend who was getting married and loved what I shot in Europe asked me if I would photograph her wedding and I said yes! The session was such a success, I was immediately given the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Brazil and that was my first international wedding.
5) How would you classify your style of photography?
My style, I would say is PhotojurnArtistic. It is a word that doesn’t exist but reflects two characteristics of which are evidenced in my photography: capturing the moment and the story but with my own artistic twist.
6) Who are or what are some of your influences on either a personal or professional level?
Salvador Dalí as my artistic influence and Jerry Ghionis as my photographic influence. Their authenticity and their own unique, creative way drove my creative pursuit.
7) Do you have any good wedding stories?
I had the pleasure of photographing an elderly couple from Boca Raton, Florida. They were in their seventies. It was very a very touching and emotional experience for me. Proof that true love knows no age.
8) What is my preferred type of camera equipment?
I am a Canon shooter and I love prime lens and also my all-around lens is the 24-70mm 2.8. My favorite lens is the 70-200mm 2.8II. I bought it 6 months ago and what I love the most is the focus speed and the image quality it produces.
9) My advice to Brides & Groom’s selecting a photographer….
When you choose your event photographer you are not just buying a service, you are also investing in lifetime memories! Quality alone is not enough. You need to have a good connection with the photographer. Remember, you are going spend at least 8 hours with each other on the most important day of your life. Also keep in mind that engagement and trashing the dress sessions are a fun part of your story and it’s very important that you choose a location that is meaningful to you as a couple. It is a moment in time you will remember the rest of your life.
