Its been interesting in the last few years to see Mérida, Yucatán slowly ¨discovered¨and ¨put on the map¨, with an influx of residents from other parts of Mexico, a growing snow bird community and a slew of (often very silly) articles appearing in sources such as the New York Times. Sometimes all the attention makes us wonder if Mérida will grow beyond recognition- and then nature reminds us that the heat here is not for the faint of heart! (106ºF (44C) in March- really?). One of the most unique architectural assets of Mérida are the beautiful mansions along the Paseo de Montejo. Dating from Méridá´s Henquen heyday, only a few of these remain today as family residences. Lauren and I were fortunate to be able to photograph this very lovely and happy couple at home on their wedding day in one of the most spectacular. Gaby brought a designer´s eye to her lovely pink wedding details, and I have to say she chosen a wonderful groom as well! Gracias Gaby y Jose Enrique, les mandamos un abrazo fuerte y muchas felicidades.
I loved Lauren’s first look perspectives, the next three shots are hers…can’t mention enough how amazing it is to photograph as part of a team.

Beautiful couple, amazing location…I am just about speechess! (and if you have been reading this blog and are thinking that its about time, since this is a photo blog, not a collection of essays! But I really do photograph the most amazing couples and sometimes I just can’t help babbling on. Feel free to skip to the good stuff, you know, the images!)
Kathy, Claudio and Lauren and I were so fortunate to have the use of a historic family residence on the very lovely Paseo de Montejo here in Merida for this wedding day portrait session. This home is one of the two ¨casas gemelas¨ or twin houses, very striking turn of the century European inspired landmarks, and it was a delight to see that this incredible mansion is being cared for with such love and respect. Kathy and Claudio were a pleasure to photograph and if it hadn´t been for the fact that they needed to go get married I could have happily continued to shoot away!
