María and Diego got married in the breathtaking Cuna de Tierra in San Miguel de Allende. María, being a photographer, looked carefully to choose who would take the pictures at her wedding. Our process to get to know each other was distinct and significant because we would FaceTime and talk our hearts out through phone calls months before the wedding.
As a couple, María and Diego share a vibe that welcomes everybody near them. My second shooter and I were immediately at peace in their presence. They just have something that makes you love life and love LOVE! When I met them for the first time, I was astonished at how the relationship we had fostered through emails, phone calls and messages had prospered to allow us to work in the best way together. What I created with them was a professional success given the way I treasure the experience my clients get through my work.
The getting ready was held at María’s rustic house in the town of San Miguel de Allende. While she got ready, the presence of her close and extended family could be felt throughout. It was encouraging as a photographer to see the bride blessed and praised by the support and love of the people she most cherishes.
María’s brother was the one to choose the incredible location where the dress would be photographed. It was endearing to see him proud as can be for being able to help out in a meaningful way. Even to this day, we all give him merit for his idea.
We chose the vineyards for the first look. Wine grapes and vines are an emblematic symbol of the San Miguel area, so the couple being photographed in front of the stunning background made them become an icon of all that they represent. I was taken aback by the couple’s strong and unique personalities. I knew their photo session could not be too romantic, so we had to come up with ways to bring out the beauty of their characters through the lens. María is goofy, while Diego just wants everyone to have the best time. It was incredible to see them radiate their joy, excitement, happiness and love for life in every photo I took.
María and Diego’s reception was like nothing I have ever experienced. It is something from another world to sense the rawest and most real love right in front of your eyes. I have been to very few parties like the one produced by María and Diego’s vivacity. They certainly were the stars of the event. Furthermore, all of the guests shun the biggest lights on them with their support and love. The wedding planner was the incredible Fernando Mora. He did a sensational job on bringing out María’s special personality through each and every detail. There were colors and beautiful flowers everywhere!!!
I will always be grateful to María and Diego for giving me the honor to be the photographer at their wedding. It was like none other and I will never forget the unbelievable energy all of us could feel in their presence.
