Cristina Ramos is a fine art and wedding photographer from Spain based in Uppsala, Sweden. 

Was born and raised in Zaragoza, Spain till attending Fine Arts school in University Complutense of Madrid. She spent all her childhood painting and drawing and photography-bug bites her accidentally in her teenage years by coming across some photo-exhibitions. Starting with landscape and portrait photgraphy, learning and developing technical skills, soon felt she needed to take a step further, so she started considering  the camera not just a tool to capture the place or the moment in time, but a tool to capture her imagination. She began re-creating through photography the concepts she was walking around with, and working on in her painting projects, and nowadays, both photographic and painting languages constitute in equal parts her mean of expression.

Cristina nació y creció en Zaragoza, España hasta que comenzó sus estudios de Bellas Artes en el C.e.s.Felipe Segundo de La Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Pasó su infancia pintando y dibujando, y el gusano de la fotografía no le picaría hasta la adolescencia, a través de la visita a algunas exposiciones de fotografía. Empezando con paisaje y retrato, estudiando y desarrollando habilidades técnicas, pronto sentiría la necesidad de dar un paso más allá, y empezaría a tomar la fotografía más que como herramienta de capturar el momento o el lugar, como herramienta para capturar su imaginación. Así pues, comenzó a recrear a través de la fotografía los conceptos e ideas que desarrollaba en sus proyectos de pintura. Hoy en día, fotografía y pintura constituyen sus dos medios de expresión al 50%.


Laying between fiction and reality, and through a visual storytelling approach, her images confront the psycological aspects of the fairytale, but flowing at the same time into a broder context of life. 

Inside magnetic and surreal scenes, these visual stories emphasize concepts such as the idea of passion, memory, trauma, the human relation with ourselves and with its hábitat, or the representation of universal feelings such us fear, desire, etc.

And she reflects on these real human aspects through a surreal visual perspective.

¨I like to bend the idea of reality trying to show how things can be looked at differently.¨Creating alternative realities, and reach for something deeper than the daily reality that traps us, is a need i satisfy through my work¨ And i do it without limits, the only rule is that there are no rules, I just want to imagine with no boundaries and as long as I can, materialize it¨

Escaped from ilusión, but located in tangible surroundings her Works, helped by their cinematic aesthetic  and theatrical light, are infused with a unique narrative that unlocks an unexpected mystery that invites the viewer to read the messages while diving in the story, and creating their plot of the scene from their own experience.

Vasaborgen. Preferred wedding venue in Uppsala.

Vasaborgen is the old prision of the Castle of Uppsala. This fortification that dates back to early 16th century is in my opinion the most unique place to get married in Uppsala. It,s 600 years old stone walls are envolved by such a beautiful and athmospheric light that makes anyone feel in a movie set. Not only is it,s beauty but the experience of doing your celebration of love among these medieval walls filled with swedish history.
