        Christian

        Oh hi, I’m never one to enjoy making things all about me but I guess you probably want to know who the hell you’re internet stalking right now. On first glance I’m essentially just your standard issue basic iced-coffee drinking sushi loving photographer. Dig a little deeper and there’s oh so much more (… I think?)

        Here’s some general info about me:

        • Born and raised in Clearwater, FL (eww humidity, give me snow pls)
        • Pretty damn tall, I’ll get all those good angles, trust me
        • Every Valentine’s day while Emilio is distracted for any given amount of time I will (somewhat influenced by a bottle of wine) book an entire vacation absolutely spur of the moment without telling him
        • I am not good at keeping secrets. So I’ll tell him within a few hours. 2018 was Israel. 2019 was London. I cannot wait til 2/14/2020.

        Emilio

        Hey, I’m Emilio. I’m the other half of Natura Collective and I’m not at mad about the spontaneous trips Christian plans. This is a common thing for us. I love exploring new corners of the world. If by somehow (miraculously) we aren’t busy shooting a wedding or binge editing you might find me:

         

        • Falling down the YouTube rabbit hole
        • Supporting local businesses and artists – whether it be a drag show or small plant shop
        • Attempting to be a food network star in our cute little kitchen
        • Taking our lazy dachshund to the park (stay tuned for Paco’s latest glamour shoot)

        WHERE DID THE NAME NATURA COLLECTIVE COME FROM?

        Emilio and I met on Tinder in the Orlando area where we were both living in 2016! When we first started dating and getting to know each other our go-to spot was "Natura Coffee & Tea." We actually spent HOURS there for weeks and weeks until we officially started dating. 


        Natura Coffee & Tea was where we started our relationship and will always be a special spot in our lives. The store itself closed down so we figured it could live on by paying it tribute with our business name.


        Conveniently we are also obsessed with nature and plants and "Natura" fit right in with our theme. We fully intend for our apartment to become a mini-jungle and no plant is unwelcome. 


        That's a little bit about us <3 We can't wait to hear your story!!

        Emilio: Christian dragged me into this right after we met and there was no turning back. I picked up a camera and started shooting weddings alongside him and I wouldn't change it for anything. I've photographed over 100 weddings!
