Lindsey here…I am taking over the blog today to share a few pictures from Caro and Jerry’s bride and groom session. It was a beautiful day and we had this entire rustic hacienda all to ourselves. This magical setting was the perfect backdrop to photograph our good friends and Lauren and I enjoyed every second of it. Thank you Caro and Jerry for giving us the honor!

Fotografia de Boda, Yucatan, Mexico, Ana Cristina y Rodrigo
November 11, 2010
Walking on sunshine. Woa-o… If wedding photo sessions had soundtracks I am pretty sure that’s what would have been playing during Ana Cristina and Rodrigo’s wedding day photo shoot at the Hacienda Chichi Suarez in Merida, Yucatan. Lindsey and I were blessed with an unbeatable trifecta… a delightfully happy, ultra low maintenance couple, one of my favorite playgrounds, the hacienda Chichi Suarez and to top it off plenty of time on a fall day that could not have been more divine.
It didn’t surprise me for a minute that these two even had rainbows without a rain cloud in sight! Rodrigo y Ana Cristina, muchas felicidades!
The first look, bride and groom arrived at the same time in separate cars, it was so fun to see them so thrilled to meet up as bride and groom and get their day rolling.

Hacienda Wedding Photography, Merida, Yucatan, Daniela and Alejandro at Hacienda Chichi Suarez
October 15, 2009
Nothing like kicking off the wedding season with a beautiful local event that takes us back to our hacienda wedding photography roots! Having known Daniela for some time and having photographed her brother Paco with his bride Zahia back in May we knew it was going to be a wonderful day spent in very good company. Hacienda Chichí Suarez dates from the 16th century, we have photographed a few events in this location and love the way different spaces have been used in a way that has made each event seem very unique. Daniela and Alejandro had their wedding at 1:00 pm, which allowed for wonderful photography opportunities. …I love love love seeing and working with natural light, there is just nothing like it!
The first one is Lindsey’s photo, what a lovely composition!
Daniela was an extremely beautiful bride!

The next one is Lindsey’s, I wish it were mine though!
The two familes together…
The reception had such colorful details! All perfectly tied toghether but very unexpected, just perfect for this afternoon wedding… a very unique twist on the hacienda setting! My regular blog readers have probably deduced, this Merida, Yucatan wedding was designed and coordinated by my friends at BAKU Events. I really can’t say enough good things about the BAKU team, it is a real treat to watch them in action as they work their magic!
We were ablet o do a few more photographs around the hacienda grounds before it was time for Alejandro and Daniela’s ‘first dance” as husband and wife.
First dance and father daughter dance…
Many more coming soon!

Yucatan, Mexico Hacienda Wedding, Natalia and Raul, Part 2, Wedding Day Photography, 03/14/09
April 24, 2009
After having spent time with Natalia and Raul at the hacienda portrait session prior to the wedding day, photographing the wedding could not have been more relaxed! Having the rare treat of photographing close to home, having both Lindsey and Lauren along as co-photographers, seeing so many familiar faces through out the evening and the fact the wedding was designed and coordinated by my good friends at the fabulous Baku Events made it especially fantastic. As fortunate as we are to photograph throughout Mexico there really is no place like home, especially when home is Merida, Yucatan! Natalia’s family has a beautiful hacienda just outside Merida, the Hacienda San Ignacio Tesip, and it could not have been a more fitting place for this joyful celebration among family and friends!
A few wedding day images, Natalia getting ready…
The bride and groom prior to the ceremony. natalia said she felt very relaxed knowing that the photo session had taken place a few weeks earlier, I guess I could say the same, but did capture quite a few relaxed and happy portraits!
I received an email recently asking if I photograph the family on the wedding day which I thought was a great question. But of course! I think the family photos can be one of the most important aspects of the day, images from family milestones have always been a key part of family history. Having specialized in studio family portraiture before catching the wedding bug I welcome the opportunity to document the families on such an important day. The photo below is of the bride and groom with both of their immediate families, what a beautiful group!
The “paje” was such a cutie!
The beautiful bridesmaids, I loved the bouquets!
Natalia and her father arriving at the Nuestra Señora de Libano church in Merida, Lindsey captured this image as well as the tears that followed!
The church was decorated beautifully with greenery, flowers and trees hung with candles, amazing!
As the guests entered the hacienda they walked across the garden area accompanied by th music of a pianist…it was almost surreal to see the grand piano in that setting and very beautiful.
The walkway was lined with hundreds (or maybe thousands!) of candles.
The reeption area, Wow! the canopy was supported by “trees” lit up by candles, just amazing.
The first dance…
And time to party…there´s no place like home for that either!

Hacienda Wedding in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, Natalia and Raul, Just a Few for Now!
April 15, 2009
I am not one to divide up my blog posts, but Natalia and Raul’s wedding will be an exception since it is vacation time here in Yucatan and I can’t wait until next week when it is all finished to share photos from this special wedding! Natalia and Raul were one of my favorite couples of all time before the wedding day even arrived! I was so happy that they planned a photo session prior to the wedding date. The wedding was a large one with many guests and this pre wedding photo session was a fantastic way to get to know each other better and to have plenty of time to really enjoy the photography without the hurry and nerves of the “big day¨. I loved hearing Natalia say that she did not regret it, in fact it was the best thing they could have done! Here are just a few photos for now…stay tuned for many more images from the fabulous ¨big day¨in my next blog post coming next week!
The wedding was held at Natalia´s family´s beautiful old hacienda. This photograph of the bride surrounded by the beauty of the hacienda took my breath away even before I pressed the shutter of the camera.
Bride and groom….the first look was very moving, I am saving your tears for the slide show!
Natalia and Raul, just a few more for now, the rest to follow soon!
