weddings

Jess and Dave’s wedding in San Pancho is being featured on Snippet & Ink, but since I’m traveling I can’t do a full post at the moment. Check out the feature here and in the mean time, while I recover from time zone changes and the inevitable jet lag associated with jumping across continents, here is Jess on negative of Fuji 3000b instant film. Like it’s older unrelated brother Polaroid, this film has now gone the way of the dinosaurs and it’s heartbreaking to me. I have a few packs stocked away in the fridge though so if you want to add it to your plan you still have a little time!

Green shutters. When Saga and Jake first contacted me about photographing their wedding they emphasized how intimate it would be. Their closest friends and family brought together in the backyard of Jake’s childhood home in upstate New York, the house with the green shutters. As I pulled around the corner not knowing if I was even in the right area (my GPS had lost signal hours earlier) and I caught sight of the shutters. Green. I had arrived.

Referrals are my absolute favorite way to find new clients. My couples are amazing and in turn I know that their friends and family will be as well. In this case it was Jeremy and Joe’s intimate Yelapa wedding (you can see their festivities here) that brought these two legends my way. Jake and Joe attended the same writers retreat and when it came time for he and Saga to decide on a photographer I got the call (or email as it were) and I am so lucky I did. These two are two of the loveliest, super talented individuals I have ever met. (Not surprising after meeting the guests at Jeremy and Joe’s wedding to say the least.)

Their wedding was held at Jake’s family home in upstate New York just outside of Hudson and in true New England style there were clouds looming over us most of the morning. The rain held off until just about night fall, but it wasn’t too much that some yellow wellies couldn’t fix. Saga’s insanely beautiful Francesca Miranda dress had two different tops, white for the ceremony and a navy blue for the reception (which went fantastically with those previously mentioned wellies). Hands down it’s in my best top five wedding dress list I’ve ever shot.

One of my favorite things about destination weddings in Mexico is going into whatever small town we happen to be in and documenting my clients in (wait for it) Mexico. I tend to shoot more at private villas and estates rather than hotels and for the most part my couples get married in Mexico because they love the culture and the vibrancy you see everywhere on a daily basis. Photographs on a beach could have been taken anywhere. I want real life, in color and on the street.  Anna and Evan were totally down and we spent a good part of the day shooting portraits around Ursula Galvan just north of San Pancho and Sayulita. So much Mexican goodness.

This was one of my favorite images from the day. Carlos had seen us taking photos at a tienda down the street from his house as he was buying tortillas. We unknowingly started shooting outside his house when he walked up the road and inside. A few minutes later he popped back out and I took this. He and his friends followed us around on their bikes for the rest of the shoot!
