What’s your name and where do you come from ?
Ches Pizzini. I was born in La Paz. I am Mexican.
Where did you study photography and how long have you been a photographer ?
Escuela Activa de Fotografía. I have been taking photos since my grandfather gave me my first camera at the age of 9. But I have been a professional photographer for 15 years.
How long have you been working in the Riviera Maya and why did you decide to work in this destination ?
I have lived and worked as a photographer in Playa del Carmen since 2004. I decided to move here because I am from the ocean. I love the ocean. I wanted to move as close to the ocean as possible and I loved the idea of getting to know another peninsula of my country.
How long have you been a wedding photographer and Why did you choose to shoot weddings?
I have been a wedding photographer for 15 years. However, it was not my intention to shoot weddings. My initial love was photo journalism and product photography. However, as I met people, weddings fell into my lap. I am always into trying something new, so I agreed. I fell in love with shooting weddings immediately. They took over my calendar and I never looked back.
How would you describe your wedding-photography style?
A mixture of lifestyle with photojournalism and a stroke of art

Are you working alone or with a team ?
Quetzal Wedding Photo is my company. I am the primary camera and shooter 99% of the weddings. However, I love to work with my best friends, who are photographers. I really enjoy working in a team. Therefore, on larger weddings, I invite them to collaborate with me. I am the sole editor of all Quetzal Wedding Photo Weddings
What is your best wedding shoot memory ?
I shot a wedding once for a couple named Thomas and Christina. It was my favorite wedding to ever shoot because the energy and love was so strong; it literally moved me to tears. I have shot a lot of weddings, and I can say that my most favorite weddings are when the couple are truly in love with each other, really are grateful to have one another, and are comfortable and secure to share it in front of all their guests. The day vibrates on a completely unique frequency.
Which word would describe the best your job ?
