BEHIND THE BUSINESS
Hey there, I’m Saul! I’ve been shooting weddings since 2008. I have under my belt of knowledge of over 200 weddings. I want to say that I have seen it all, and if I haven’t all my previous knowledge has gotten me ready for what’s to come and confront any type of wedding situation. My passion for photography is one of my greatest traits. I’m always hungry to learn more and be ready to capture those timeless moments.
I was born in Mexico and raised in a small little town in south Texas called Port Isabel. It’s located right next to South Padre Island. It’s a very popular Spring Break getaway, but the rest of the year gets extremely boring. Even though we had the Gulf of Mexico right there, fishing or swimming can only get you so far in the entertainment department. So I turned to drawing. Drawing helped to see how to fit an object or subject on a piece of paper. I trained my eye to see the full picture before I laid my pencil. It wasn’t until I started dating my now wife that I had the urge to take pictures of her and just capture memories that my mind can only frame for so long. From there I was drawn to dramatic lighting, and lighting in general. And my previous knowledge of drawing helped me merge these two methods together. And in return I am now able to create better images of my wife, which was my main motive when I started.
And when I’m not busy working on weddings or taking pictures of my wife, I love to build and assemble action figure models. My brain is always thinking of so much at one time so this is such a great way to distress and just focus on one thing.
Whats up, I’m Barett! I have been shooting photography with CivicPhotos since the beginning of the company. During that time I have been privileged to capture amazing images of amazing people at hundreds of events! My favorite thing to capture is the engagement session since everything with the couple is usually very exciting and emotional…it’s the perfect scenario for great portraits. I love learning new things about photography so I usually welcome photographic conversations!
Although my parents are both from the Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Antigua…I was actually born in the city of Houston! I was fortunate though to be raised on the Caribbean island of St.Eustatius…its only 8-sqaure miles in size. From as long as I can remember I loved taking pictures! I remember shooting 35mm film and having to send the film to the United States for it to be developed…only about a 3-week waiting period to see if I caught good images! I started shooting photography with professional-level cameras shortly after I married my wife Yorlin. Being a fairly social person…I always enjoyed how photography could capture moments and emotions…that really made me love taking portraits of people.
Spare time…what is that!!?? Although I usually don’t have much…on my spare time I like watching sports…mainly basketball…football only socially…and I love playing video games!
