My name is Manuel Orero, and I am an international wedding photographer with residence in Sot de Chera, Valencia; Spain.
For 12 years I have dedicated myself to this plot of photography. The reason why I dedicate myself to it is because I like "real photography". I have always said that the secret of a portrait is in the look (it is something obvious), and in a wedding is where I find the most honest looks. That's why I prefer to say that my photography is honest, rather than beautiful.
I believe that the evolution of documentary photography has been beneficial in the world of weddings. I worked in advertising and press, and that helped me a lot when it came to making reports to couples, since it united reality and creativity at the same time.
Beyond the work, I will always say that photography saved my life. It is a massive construction weapon.
