With this in mind, I’m on my journey in this adventure called life.
Hi, I’m Rares and I am a passionate traveler, an explorer of life, always looking to expand my horizons, believing that the only person I should be better than is just the person I was yesterday. That’s something that probably arises from doing all that I do with love, yes - I am fortunate enough to be able to say that includes my job too!
Seven years have passed since I started living this passion - photography, and not even now can I think about it as work.
I’ve always thought that a sincere smile should never be more than just a thought away, the first thought when facing life’s miracles or adversities, a mindset that I am trying to maintain in my everyday life. It’s incredible how a positive attitude and a genuine interest can help you discover amazing and surprising people.
Thinking about it, I think it all comes from my grandmother. Since I was a little boy I loved listening to her mysterious stories about places and characters from her youth. Over the years, I kept this passion of listening to the stories of other people, so that afterwards I can tell them through my photography.
These are the life stories of the wonderful people I crossed paths with and who share with me not only some special days, but their dreams, passions and ideals. Their love!
But don’t take my word for it, explore the website and draw your own conclusions.
"I’m in love with places I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met." That may sound crazy but it’s actually something that resonates quite strongly in me. I’ve photographed people in hundreds of cities and more than a dozen countries. I’d be more than happy if your story takes me to a completely different corner of this world.
So, if you read this far, then I feel that we have plenty in common and maybe someday I will be honored to hear your answer to the question: what is your story?
Rares is based in London, United Kingdom and Barcelona, Spain but covers destination weddings around the world.
My gratitude to Rares for planning out the photo session for our pre wedding and for taking all those beautiful shots in such a short time. Despite that nasty wind and cold, Rares you were very determined that we get the most beautiful angles and scenery before we leave any location. The photos that we got are absolutely breathtaking.
The experience has been an unforgettable one! ;)
Thank you for making this trip and photoshoot experience so awesome!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the amazing photos!!! Meghan and I absolutely love them. You captured us beautifully and made us look better than we're used to looking. :)
We've shown the photos to so many people and they've all been extremely impressed with just how amazing they look. You are a true artiste, my friend. It was such an honor to have you come all this way to shoot our wedding, and so wonderful to see you and share some laughs and adventures again. Thank you again for everything!
After doing some research looking for wedding photographers available in Barcelona, we landed on Rares’s website and decided to choose him to document our special day. Rares seems to have that extra touch that we were looking for. He takes advantage of the environment (light and geometrical shapes) and not only the wedding couple. This makes his picture beautiful, interesting and unique.
Our experience with Rares:
He is professional, but still very personal and comfortable to be around. Being able move around unnoticed, he captured a lot images that totally surprised me and this is because I never noticed Rares taking them. He is good at capturing the mood of the wedding and transmitting that through his photos.
To sum things up: We are very happy with our pictures, and would recommend Rares to friends, family and pretty much everybody!
Rares, I’ve watched our slideshow about 17 times since you posted it yesterday, and have spent at least 10 hours in the online gallery. The amazing thing is, when I watch the slideshow for the 18th time, I know I’ll tear up yet again, and laugh yet again. You just captured the emotion so exquisitely and told the story of our day so beautifully that I feel like I’m reliving each moment. It’s even more fun to see the moments that I didn’t see as the day unfolded.
From beginning to end, you have been an absolute pleasure to work with and so professional. I’m sure we’ll see you in the near future at the wedding of some loved one of ours who is staring at your pictures right now.
Thank you so much Rares! The photos are gorgeous and very natural. If you told me in advance that I would be running around in the rain in a long white dress over cliffs, around waves, and downs stone steps I would have expected an adventure, but it was actually a lot of fun and very enjoyable.
We really enjoyed meeting you. The photos are a great reflection of the whole experience. We look forward to sharing them with our family and friends over the holidays. Again… Thank you!
We were looking for a photographer in Barcelona who could take beautiful editorial photos worth a thousand words. When I first saw Rares' portfolio online, I instantly knew he was the perfect fit for our wedding in Barcelona.
Rares was quick to respond to any questions and coordinated schedules and locations with my planner which allowed the day to run smoothly.
On the day, he was very calming and reassured us that everything was under control and helped us relax and focus on just having a great time.
It was a very long day but Rares remained professional and focused throughout the night (even though he was very popular with the ladies!) and captured the most perfectly timed moments I'll ever remember from the day. Our albums arrived and the photos range from beautiful to breathtaking to downright hilarious!
One year later, we still look back at our wedding as the best day of our lives and we are so thankful that Rares was our photographer.
These memories will be forever treasured. Thank you so much and keep doing what you love! :)
