Who is Shootingforlove?

Husband and wife team Estuardo José Salazar  and Sara Elizabeth Salazar make up Shooting For Love photography. Originally from the East Coast, in the past 6 month, they have come to call the Pacific Northwest home. 

Who is Sara? By Estuardo

Sara described in two words: awesomeness and silliness. She is the kind of person that makes silly sounds in the morning, and ridiculous little nicknames for things. She is the kind of girl that is always willing to give you a shoulder to cry on at the end of the day, and everyone I have ever met just loves her. Besides her silliness she is a very caring person that makes sure everybody around is happy, having fun, and feeling loved. 

Sara loves foreign cultures. She can speak 3 languages. She loves to read books, and is even in the process of writing her own. I can’t imagine my life without her. 

She likes to dance salsa, and listen to Ellie Goulding. She loves tea and coffee and runs miles and miles everyday. She just learned how to play “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran on the guitar, and her favorite show right now is Game of Thrones. 

She continuously pushes herself to reach the top, from her silly salsa dance moves, to her fitness determination, and reading hunger, I believe she is a very special person and I couldn’t be happier to have her as a part of my team. She also has her own YouTube channel #SaritaSays.

She also loves photography- of course!- and is always looking to find ways to make better art to deliver to our brides and grooms. 

Who is Estuardo? By Sara

Estuardo is one of the most incredible people I have ever met in my life. His enthusiasm and general positivity are absolutely contagious and it’s impossible not to smile when you’re around him. 

His favorite tv show is True Detective, he doesn't like spicy food, and loves white chocolates and vanilla ice-cream.

He never, ever goes to sleep at a decent hour, and to him there is nothing infinitely more powerful and personal than photography.

He is undoubtedly one of the most determined people I have ever met. If something is broken, he will find a way to fix it.

His creativity and talents are endless. This really shows in his photography. He is continually experimenting with new ideas, and has an amazing passion for learning.

He is never satisfied with his work. It makes him a better photographer, and I truly believe that he strives to learn something from every photograph he takes. 

We look forward to meeting you.
