For those unfamiliar with Mexico, San Miguel de Allende is located very far from the Yucatan Peninsula where I live. The landscape, architecture, history and even the light are very different in the two places. Erin and Jim chose to be married in the historic Hacienda Las Trancas in the countryside between Dolores Hidalgo and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It was a beautiful, intimate celebration and I felt so fortunate to be able to document the wedding, as well as photograph Erin and Jim more informally in the colorful town of San Miguel de Allende. ¡Felicidades Erin y Jim!
I arrived from the airport just in time for this relaxed portrait session near the main square of San Miguel de Allende.
The people passing by thought that Erin and Jim were models, they were so surprised to hear that they would be getting married in a few days!
The wedding day…the weather could not have been more perfect.
I have never really been into roses, but I think Erin made me a believer. They were AMAZING.
I loved this shot of the guys in the hacienda corridor.
Jim waiting for his first glimpse of Erin as a bride.
The ceremony was held in the hacienda’s courtyard, so beautiful.

July 7, 2007 was a big day for weddings, and it really was a lucky date for me, because I was able to work with a fabulous couple on a gorgeous sunny day in the Maya Riviera. Catherine and John planned their wedding on a private beach in Playacar, with the reception to follow at the Riu Palace Resort. Here are a few images form that special day…

Catherine asked her friends to dress in the colors of the ocean..I love it!
The first dance…
Another first dance…this photograph really spoke to me.
