Rinconada Wedding Photographer

Elopement Wedding in Rinconada

Hello friend, chances are you were searching for a wedding photographer in Rinconada and found us here. For us, each couple is a friend and not a client.

La Rinconada is a town in the Peruvian Andes located near a gold mine. At 5,100 m above sea level, it is the highest permanent settlement in the world. Between the years of 2001 and 2009, the population increased to 30,000 people from just a small gold prospector camp because the price of gold rose 235% in the same time. Attempting to acclimatise to altitudes between 3000-5000 meters (10,000-16,000 feet) is fairly difficult, and adjusting to the low oxygen levels gets particularly arduous (and dangerous) toward the top end of that range. So just imagine how difficult it is at La Rinconada, which is above this range! Statistics show that over 50% of people will become ill if they ascend rapidly from sea level to 3500 meters without acclimatization, everyone will if they ascend rapidly to 5000 meters, and above that is thought to be nearly impossible to permanently acclimatise to, so La Rinconada is probably not the town you want to spend a few months in. It is undoubtedly possible for newcomers to spend several weeks sleeping as high as La Rinconada once acclimatized, but gradual deterioration of physical well-being will almost certainly still occur. While the scenery surrounding the town is stunning and well worth seeing, one must take into account the severe risks of ascending to such a high altitude, even if it means having to cut your La Rinconada excursion short.

We would like to say a word or two about us. We're Tu & Tara, a destination wedding photographer & videographer based in Greece, Germany & other parts of Europe (mostly Italy, Spain, France) - also available worldwide.
