About Daniel


How I hated what I was doing and decided to follow my true path.

Hi! My name is Daniel Aguilar, I’m a 1981 vintage model made in the city of Puebla, Mexico. I moved to Texas when I was an 18 year old teenager to pursue what I thought was my dream back then of becoming a Computer Scientist.

Little I knew that I was destined to hate Computer Science and to live some of the four toughest years of my life trying to finish a degree I didn’t really like; however, it was during this rough university years that photography came into my life.

I will always remember the day I developed my first film picture in a dark room, I was surrounded by the smell of weird chemicals and all I could see was red light. After a few attempts and a few seconds soaked into the developer,  my picture came to life and instantaneously fell in love with photography. I knew I wanted to become a photographer.


I started out as a photojournalist for the University's newspaper and later on I worked and a graphic reporter for another newspaper once I graduated from Computer Science and thanks to some small coincidences in life, I started shooting my first weddings back then.

It's been almost 10 years since I shoot weddings and all that I can say is that Wedding Photography changed my life and changed my perception about what is really meaningful in life. It is because of wedding photography that I now understand the importance of living in the present and not taking a single moment in life for granted.

I now know that my mission as a wedding photographer is to capture meaningful images that can show you all the blessings that you have in your life right now, so you can look back and always be thankful for them today and in the future.

If you like my work and you love Star Wars, I really can't wait to work for you!
