Golden Anniversary

A year ago today, I was back home in Lima with my family getting ready to celebrate the 50 years of marriage of my parents.  It was a ceremony and party that we were preparing for a long time, but we never knew how big would end up being. Honestly,  the celebration was like a real wedding. Trust me when I say that at first my dad and mom wanted something small and intimate but then they decided to bring a wedding planner to help them to organize the whole event.
My parents got married when they were 19 years old. They had four kids my sister Pilar, my brother Javier, myself and after 13 my brother Saul. My siblings gave to my parents eight grandchildren (in the picture only appearing seven cause one of my nephews couldn’t come from Argentina.)
Celebrating with your parents their Golden Anniversary is like being at their wedding 50 years ago. It was an emotional and beautiful moment to spend with them and their friends who attend their wedding first wedding.
For sure this will be a memory that will hold an extraordinary moment in my life.
Today is their 51 years of marriage, and I wish them many years more.. Love them

I was born in Lima, Peru, and about 20 years ago I decided to move to the United States to expand my horizons. So I moved to New York City, and I couldn't have chosen a better place to do this. I instantly fell in love with the city; the captivating people, the enchanting architecture, and the spectacular landscapes hiding just beyond the city's borders. I had always enjoyed taking pictures and had dabbled a bit in the past, but my passion grew immensely when I moved to NYC. I started working in I.T., and through my new friends and colleagues, began learning more about cameras and photography. I'm at my happiest when I am taking or working on my pictures. Expressing myself through photography makes me feel free and alive. My camera is my friend and accomplice, and together we try to capture the beauty in every moment. For me, the greatest thing is letting the picture tell its own story.
