Gaby and José Enrique Fotografia de Boda, Paseo de Montejo, Elizabeth Medina, Merida Yucatan Wedding Photography
March 27, 2013
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.

Sometimes people ask me about my ¨typical clients¨ which I have to say is a question that completely stumps me. We have been so blessed to meet and photograph amazing brides and grooms from literally every continent, photographing very intimate weddings and affairs with surprisingly long guest lists, beach weddings, church weddings, extremely formal and elegantly casual affairs, crazy parties and more reserved celebrations. I think the common thread that seems to tie together all our couples is their willingness to go the extra mile to have special photographs to remember and celebrate their ¨big day¨. Oh and of course they are all simply beautiful people and totally crazy about each other! On a more random level a common trait that seems to appear would be that we have photographed many, many graphic design professionals, both brides and grooms, which is totally fantastic! I love knowing that our beloved jpegs will be in good hands and get put to many creative uses. In this case the beautiful bride is an experienced graphic designer and when Ana Mercedes reached out to me over a year ago she already was excited about the photographs. It was hard to have to wait an entire year for the photo session at the Quinta Montes Molina! Ana y Lucio, espero que les gusten las fotos y que no les haya cansado demasiado! Fue muy especial fotografiarlos, gracias y un abrazo!
La primera foto es de Lauren… estaba increible el cielo!
I told you she was beautiful…
Lucio was all smiles waiting for the first glimpse of his bride!
The “first look” on the front porch of the Quinta Montes Molina, very special.
Photographs of the couple in different areas of this historic home.
Bridal details, Ana’s bouquet and shoes…
We captured some very special bridal portraits of Ana in the interior of the quinta… I could have photographed a few more hours (or days, haha!) and not run out of interesting locations but of course Ana and Lucio needed to get married!

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!
