Hello. We are Nikhol & Roque, Photographers based out of Oaxaca City. Also pictured are Mezcal and Janis, our two adopted dogs. We photograph events and families — life in many a context — taking a documentary-based approach that mixes traditional photographic documentation with a twist of street photography. The result is our distinct style.
We met many moons ago in Oaxaca as bright-eyed recent college graduates. Our backgrounds in psychology and fine art help to inform our work; our cameras are the tools we use to create art while exploring the human experience. We are always challenging ourselves to create interesting, authentic, and unique imagery. Each event has its own story and finding the most genuine and creative way to visually represent that story is a big part of what motivates us. The subjects guide our storytelling. We love constructing pictures, seeing the moving pieces coming together, connecting with the people before us and creating space for the story to organically emerge. We make distinctive and real images that capture both the large and small moments of life, telling the story of special days with authenticity, creativity and feeling. We are grateful every single day to be entrusted to document precious moments in the lives of so many wonderful human beings.
In addition to event and family photography, we have also photographed for architecture projects, NGOs, television and documentaries, as well as for local businesses. Our work has been awarded in many international photography contests and we have been so lucky to give workshops and speak at conferences about our distinctive approach to wedding photography in Mexico and South America.
As you will see looking through our photographs, our content is diverse and our style is specialized.
So there’s a little about us, we would love to hear about you. Reach out via the contact form.
