Hi! I'm Xènia.
Do you want to know the reason why I was born with a camera in my hands?
I could say I’ve always been passionate about photography, that it’s been a part of my life since I was born, that I “borrowed” my dad’s Yashica against his will. I could also tell you that I spent most of my childhood taking pictures, but it wasn’t only about capturing those moments, but that feeling that I had every time I developed them.
I’ve grown up with a camera between my hands and with it, everything that I’ve learned.
Patience and determination have been my pillars when it comes to learning and this is the reason why the camera has allowed me to discover how to play with light and capture the perfect moment.
When I was 6, I took a photo of a cloud that looked like a dragon.
When I was 8, I already had my first photo album made.
When I was 18, I started studying photography and I bought my first Reflex.
When I was 21, I got a job as a photographer in a local magazine.
I specialized in documental photography, pinning my interest in shows. Moreover, I also worked as photojournalist covering all type of events; from sports, politic events, cultural shows, etc.
Even though this type of job didn’t fulfill me, it helped me learn how to shoot the perfect moment and to develop an immediate response from my side.
When I was 24, I specialized in fashion and editing photography for magazines, photographic books and expositions.
When I was 26, I quit my job and started to work as an editor in a photography studio. That was the moment when I learned my true passion: telling stories.
Say Cute is born!
Wedding photography with a personal and magic signature,
turning memories into emotions.
It’s been 8 years since that moment.
My passion for photography is born in my eagerness to capture that instant that will make a difference: that smile, that special moment, that second when your breathing stops…
We just received our wedding photos from Say Cute and they are perfect! Xènia really captured the feeling of the day. The photos are exactly what we were looking for. They are beautiful and natural. We were clear we didn’t want the typical forced poses. The photos all look effortless and light, like the day really was. Thank you, Xènia, for the beautiful memories you captured.
