Excellent experience. I am not conventionally attractive and loathe photos but they came out okay and Rafa was great to work with! Also learned so much about the history of Cartagena in a short time.

Rafael did an amazing job. He made the experience feel unique and the events that occurred from random people rapping to specifically selected locations he accommodated well. Rafael sent the photos rather quickly and when I looked at his completed work I was in awe. Rafael has a talent and I'm lucky to have the first-hand experience in his art. Originally he was booked and after a message, he made time for my wife and I. After reading his other reviews I knew he was the only photographer for me while in Cartagena. And after seeing the finished product I am completely sure I made the right choice. The only negative thing is he is not here in the American Midwest where I could fly to him do take further photos.

I traveled to Cartagena to celebrate my 50th birthday and booked time with Rafael for my birthday photo shoot. He was fantastic to work with, great at communicating before my trip and helped bring out my inner model. He created an experience that included not only a photo shoot but also an insightful city tour and managed to bring out my husband’s personality. I can not recommend Rafael more enthusiastically!!

Raf, was amazing! All of my girlfriends who are solo travelers scheduled time with him before they left Cartagena. All their pics looked spectacular. You really can't go wrong. Mine were special because he included things that I love like color backgrounds and art.
