My name is Elena Buenavista and I have always been a good storyteller. Get to know what goes around, the very latest, explore the world, discover people, cultures…that is why I decided to study Journalism. Becoming an editor, being in the core of news, that was something I was thrilled with…but soon I realized writing was not enough and needed other ways of expression to feel complete, and it was then, when my interest for photography was born.
That is how I throve in the world of photography, reading more about it, learning more (I hold a Master on Photojournalism in the UCM and completed my education in the prestigious school of photography EFTI). The more I learned, the more pictures I saw, the more photographers I knew, the more passion I felt for this art, the more excitement I poured, the more time I dedicated myself to it and all I wished for: Becoming a full-time photographer.
Nowadays, I can say I did it, and currently I collaborate with several national magazines and newspapers.
Some years ago, one colleague who worked for a studio, asked me to go and cover a wedding for he was busy, and there I went without hesitation. It was the best thing I have done in my entire life, not only was I hired for the photography studio, but also discovered I loved WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY!!! So many emotions, feelings, joy…I wanted to shoot everything, photograph the beauty of the brides, the jitters of the bride and groom, the happiness of the guests, the binge of friends…!
And it was like that that I began in this profession. In this crazy world of photography, things cannot be done without PASSION. That is the way I work, surrendering my soul in every photograph, taking care of every detail and story. All in all, that is what I offer: telling the story of your wedding through images. It is definitely what I do best.
Currently, I can say I and other colleagues set up Buenavistaandco.

That is how we get a lively and spontaneous feature, full of emotions, tears, laughs, hugs … Timeless photographs, the kind in which you can recognize yourselves even years afterwards.
