Imagen-Estilo is run by husband and wife duo Dave and Sonia. Dave, originally from Dublin Ireland, is the photographer while Sonia, with her background in architecture and fine designs is the make up artist. Both live in the outskirts of Málaga at the foot of the Piedras Blancas.
With a love of images of all types, Dave re-ignited his love for photography when he moved from Ireland to Spain in 2008. Being based in one of the more scenic regions in Spain, surrounded by some of the most beautifully untouched Spanish pueblos, olive groves and rolling hills in the province of Málaga, Dave started off as a lot of photographers do, photographing their surrounding landscape. His interest grew into street photography and portraiture with a photojournalistic twist. Building on this and stemming from his insatiable addiction for new lenses and photographic gear came the inevitable request to do a photoshoot. With such positive feedback, it was only a natural evolution to photograph a wedding.
Dave takes great pride in the images he produces and will not stop until the results are exactly as he wants. His approach at any event when photographing people is to capture the natural personality of the person. This can only be achieved by making people feel relaxed on front of the camera and for a vast number of people, given their wedding will be the first time they will have been photographed professionally, it is important that this relaxed atmosphere is created from the very start. Not a lover of the more traditional posed photography, he constantly looks for that natural emotion, that special moment, in his subjects which is akin to his photojournalistic stlye. If you would give Dave the honor of being photographer for your event, big or small you will be guaranteed a professional service from the initial meeting to delivery of the end album or digital pack. You will also be guaranteed friendly support at any time beyond. With a personal aim to capture the best images possible on the day you can be guaranteed every event he does will have that personal touch.
Sonia, a "malagueña" through and through, holds her background in architecture. Currently working as a rep for a top cosmetics company her passion as a make-up artist only complements her daily role. After successfully completing her masters in Maquillaje Profesional from Academia Nebro in Málaga she decided to put her architectural career on hold to pursue a career that truly makes her happy.
When she is not looking after her daughter she likes to be out and about checking out new styles and trends such that she can constantly offer her clients that modern cutting-edge look. If having your make up done professionally is something new to you, Sonia will make you feel completely relaxed with her chatty and friendly personality. She aims to make every make-up experience a fun one. Whatever your requirements Sonia will always recommend a consultation well beforehand. At the consultation she will explain all the services she offers, what products she uses and for example what particular steps are required to achieve a certain look. Sonia uses only high quality cosmetic products such as Oriflame, MAC, Stage, Clinique and Montserrat Fajardo (now unfortunately defunct). If there is something that you would like to try, or if you have been inspired by something you have seen then let Sonia know and she will be delighted to accomodate you. As with all events, should you choose Sonia as your make up artist she will arrange a trial well before the big day.
