Photography runs through his veins. He inherited his father’s artistic eye, Edgar Henriquez, who is also a renowned Venezuelan photographer. When he was very young he accompanied him to events to take pictures; this is how at 17 years old he discovered what his great passion was: photography.
Pedrito, as he is affectionately known, devotes his days to social events, corporate coverage to companies such as Merrill Linch, Sushi Kong Restaurant, among many others and photo shoots of people and media figures such as Sascha Barboza, Mariela Encarnacion (anchor of CNN), Orlando Urdaneta, Georgina Mazzeo, Michelle Badillo and baseball players Carlos Gonzalez and Salvador Perez. However, his specialty are weddings.
There are many wedding photographers but photographers who give their soul to get the best photos, there are few. Pedro is one of these few.
He manages to capture in images such particular details as the tender look of a father who gives his daughter at the altar or the happiness and love of the bride and groom during that special day. Every angle, focus, and play with the lights are loaded with the purest creativity and genius of this photographer. As a photographer, Pedrito is bold but subtle at the same time. Each photo speaks for itself.
His excellent work quality led him to win the important Wedawards, International Wedding Photography Awards, in September 2018.
He has also obtained several awards and honors from AVECOFA, Venezuelan Association of the Photographic and Related Community. Likewise, he is an active photographer of the “I Love Venezuela” Foundation to which Pedro Henriquez makes contributions to collect funds in the annual galas and various events.
His best model will always be Natalia. She is his 2 years old daughter. Together with his wife Elena, they have formed a wonderful family.
