November 2010

This past week was a crazy one for me. Three weddings, a “trash the dress”, and a family photo shoot left little time for living, but I was able to go to the Día de Revolución festivities last Saturday. In addition it is the 200th anniversary of the revolution which makes it even more special than normal. I mean kids dressed up as revolutionaries? You can’t beat that. I still don’t have time for a full post, but I wanted to share one of my favorites before I start in on the mountain of images I have to edit.

I just got back from an amazing wedding in Zihuatanejo and I also had the chance to take a couple days off and go inland to Michoacán for Día de los Muertos. It was inspiring. Michoacán is by far one of the most beautiful states in Mexico for sure. Before I post those photos though, I have to go back a bit to San Pancho Days. Every town in Mexico has a town festival that usually revolves around the saint of the local church and/or town. For us it is San Francisco and there are nine days of fiestas. Here are some of the images from the final day.

The day starts with tacos de carnitas and chelas (beers) in the park and a parade through town to the church. They continue through the afternoon finishing with los toros (bull riding) in the evening and then ending with a banda en la plaza.

Some weddings just can’t be captured into words. Myle and Chris had one of them. From the moment I first corresponded with Myle something clicked. I knew I would love being a part of their day. And I did.

Every detail you see here Myle had a part in. She and her mom were up almost the entire night before the wedding making the pompoms. Now that is ambitious. I don’t think I will ever have another wedding where the bride is setting up the reception less than two hours before she is supposed to walk down the aisle.

Thank you both for treating me like family and opening up your lives for me to document.

The ceremony was held at Casa Los Delfines in Sayulita and the reception at Cafe del Mar in San Pancho.

Andrea and Ben got married at Playa Escondida just South of Sayulita. Ben’s father passed away a few months before the wedding and you just knew he was looking down upon them. After the beautiful beach ceremony they performed a tea ceremony in honor of Andrea’s heritage and I was so lucky to have been able to capture such a moment. With only their closest friends and family in tow, they had one of the most meaningful days I have attended.
