Based between Paris and Madrid, and inspired by the idea that amazing things happen when you go beyond the selfie. We have been capturing special moments around the world since 2016. CAPTOURIST will change the way you remember any special occasion by giving you a beautiful memory lane to walk down on.
Founded by partners in life Fernanda Retes and Pablo Torres. 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 they 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, combined their passions and skills. Captourist was founded in early 2019.
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 passionate for connecting with the world and creating high-quality content.
In june 2019 Pablo and Fernanda became parents to a beautiful boy, Paolo. Six months later they received the most terrifying news, Paolo had Leukemia. The journey has been both hard and enriching. As a family they have learned to live in the moment, here and now.
Today, they have two wonderful boys: Paolo & Luca and they live between Paris and Madrid –mostly in the city of lights! Paolo is three years old, and after a Bone Marrow Transplant and thanks to medical advances and research he is free of Leukemia. This is the reason why Pablo and Fernanda decided to make of Captourist not only a way of living but a way to contribute with both Joseph Carreras Foundation and Aladina Foundation which are dedicated to Childhood Cancer Research.
