Beauty is out there. Be captured by it.

Óvæntur is a passion project born out of the love for photographing my daughter. Moments spent with her fill my heart with a deep appreciation of the ordinary. A vacant glance, a sprightly grin. Each memory is simple and unexpected. To hold them in a picture is a gift.

My hope is to give your family the same gift.


My name is Juan Encalada. I’m a life photographer trying to capture unexpected moments as they truly are, simple but beautiful. My hope is that these photographs can help us all feel a little more human and move us to embrace the ordinary.

There’s always a story that needs telling. I want to help your family tell theirs. I’m available to photograph any occasion, no matter how ordinary it may seem.


Every family has a story. Let me help you tell yours through moments captured in photographs forever.
