Our Story

Founded by friends Fernanda Retes, Pablo Torres and Santiago Montes. The idea first came when back in 2015 Pablo planned the most romantic scenario  to propose Fernanda in beautiful Venice. Jessica Cacciapuoti, a very good  friend  who knew Venice as the palm of her hand, suggested Pablo a secret  spot, which only locals knew about. There they were in a hidden dock with The Rialto Bridge. As their  background and the sunset lighting up  the Grand  Canal when he asked the Big Question and  they promised each other to spend  the rest of their lives together. Their only photograph: a dark and blurry picture.


They have been working together in their dream job – photography, since 2012, capturing smiles, love and life. They would have loved to have hired a professional photographer to ensure he would capture the whole scenario to keep it forever and share it with their loved ones. Fernanda and Pablo thought that even as photographers there are unique moments that worth keeping away  your camera and let a professional capture the ocassion. So you can focus only on living the moment. Inspired by their own experience,  they teamed up with Santiago, combined their passions and skills. Captourist was founded in 2017.


Now, the team is made up of Pablo Torres (Co-founder/Art Director) the man that brings their creative vision to life; Fernanda Retes (Co-founder) handling the day-to-day operations; Santiago Montes (Co-Founder/Chief Social Media Officer), passionate for connecting with the world and creating high-quality content and Jessica Cacciapuoti (Chief Communication Officer) on the business and communication  side of things.
