Cristina & NickOmaha, Nebraska

We were so excited for this shoot as we’ve been friends with Cristina & Nick for a few years now. Nick is an unstoppable Omaha entrepreneur responsible for amazing things like Over Easy and The Market House. We love connecting with couples over food and drinks, so that’s exactly how this afternoon started. We had many laughs and even a rooftop adventure as the sun set over Omaha. Needless to say, we’re pretty happy with the result, we love being back home every year & doing beautiful things like this engagement session in Omaha Nebraska.

Marcela & RicardoWedding in Hacienda Nueva, Guatemala City

This was such a fun night! Marcela & Ricardo were married at the Hacienda Nueva Country Club, outside of San Jose Pinulá, Guatemala. What was so impressive about this wedding was literally EVERY decoration was made by Marcela or one of her guests. Ricardo’s beautiful mother even made the amazing wedding cake, adorned with succulents and hanging on a swing at the reception. This truly was a family affair! wedding photographer guatemala city

Alex & YasminHotel Casa Santo Domingo ~ Antigua, Guatemala

We honestly believe that the best weddings are always the most effortless. When there is genuine love between two people, nothing could be easier to photograph, which is definitely the case with this wedding. Alex & Yasmin decided to have their wedding in Guatemala because part of Yasmin’s family is originally from here. The venue, Hotel Casa Santo Domingo, is one of the most famous hotels in Antigua, built from what used to be one of the grandest convents in the Americas. Nonetheless, the mood when we arrived on the day of the wedding was relaxed and joyful. As the bride and groom got ready, they shared lots of laughs and smiles with their loved ones. As the ceremony got closer, there was literally no sign of stress on the side of the bride or groom. Everyone was just generally happy to be there. The general joy of the day set the tone for the wedding, which made it that much more amazing. Happiness is contagious! wedding photographer antigua guatemala

Brent & LindsayLake Atitlan, Guatemala

Brent & Lindsay’s wedding contained all of the excitement, tension and happiness that is typically expected on a wedding day.  A surprise rainstorm, a Mayan ceremony and an impromptu fireworks show made for an incredible evening at Laguna Lodge, located in Santa Cruz La Laguna in Guatemala.  The beautiful Lake Atitlan was a gorgeous backdrop for the intimate ceremony, which included the blessings from a Mayan Shaman, who took the time to go through all 20 nahuales (spirits) that contributed something for the couple. Explaining the importance of friendship, honesty and love, the Shaman spoke to Brent & Lindsay about the importance of the agreement and promise they were making to each other. Wedding lake atitlan.

Despite the unexpected rain, this is one of most beautiful weddings we have ever been a part of.  Lindsay, Brent & their guests treated us like family during their intimate destination wedding.  We couldn’t be happier to have captured this beautiful day!

This wedding was published on the wedding blog Bridal Musings. You can follow the link on the image to know more of Brent & Lindsay’s amazing story. Wedding lake atitlan.

Having another photographer ask you to shoot their engagement photos is the ultimate form of flattery. Not only did we get to hang out with the incredibly talented Vasty Madrid, but we got to trade secrets, share experiences and make new friends. What an awesome afternoon!

A homage to Vietnam

Here are some of our favorite moments and photos from our month-long visit to Vietnam. We both have had the desire to visit this beautiful country for a while now and feel so lucky to have spent some time there, eating delicious new foods, meeting new friendly people and admiring a landscape unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

Thank you so much, Vietnam for welcoming us with open arms. We will definitely see you again….

All images shot with a Fujifilm XT-10 + 35mm F/2 & 18mm f/2. This camera’s size/price/quality is out of this world.

15 Reasons to have a Destination Wedding in Guatemala

Recently we ran across a great article on Huffington Post with reasons to have a destination wedding. After reading all these great reasons, we decided to narrow down the list to the benefits of having your destination wedding Guatemala, since this unique country has so much to offer as a wedding destination.

Here are 15 reasons you should have your destination wedding in Guatemala:

1) Incredible natural settings

Even though Guatemala is a relatively small country, the landscape options range from sandy Caribbean beaches to high volcanic peaks. You can find enchanted green forests or ancient jungles, beautiful lakeside settings or golden sunsets on the Pacific. Whatever natural backdrop you’re looking for – Guatemala has it. destination wedding guatemala

2 ) Unique wedding venues

In addition to beautiful natural settings for your destination weddings, Guatemala also offers a number of unique wedding venues that could be the perfect location for your special day. In fact, recently four of Guatemala’s hotels were on a list of the 10 best hotels in Central America and the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine. How about a wedding in a  lakeside villa with views of three majestic volcanoes? Think about a more rustic look of ancient ruins from an old, crumbled church. Can you see yourself saying “I Do” at a coffee finca or an avocado farm? Then Guatemala is the place for you.

3 ) Guatemala is affordable

Your money goes a long way in Guatemala. In comparison with costly locations in Europe and the United States, you can expect to spend half the money you would spend on a cookie-cutter wedding in the US and other parts of North America. With the average US wedding costing $31,000, it’s no wonder why you would look for a cheaper option. So instead of cutting important details like your preferred photographer or perfect wedding dress, you’ll be allowing yourself those extra special things by saving on venue costs, food, and transport in a country where you can get more bang for your buck. destination wedding guatemala

4 ) Amazing weather

The only thing better than Guatemala’s pristine beauty is its weather. Known as the ¨Land of Eternal Spring¨ you can have flexibility when choosing your wedding date and plenty of time to plan ahead. From November to May is known as the dry season, with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21-27° Celsius) during the day and cooling down to the 60’s in the evening. From about May to October the rainy season takes place, but don’t be discouraged by the name. Most times the rainy season involves an hour or two of rain in the afternoons and beautiful sunsets to finish the day. With this rain comes the lush, green color of trees and other sorts of plant life that provide Guatemala with a vibrancy unlike any other. Looking for something a bit warmer? Head South towards the beaches of Monterrico and or go East to Livingston for an unforgettable seaside wedding. You can also find warmer temperatures in the dense jungles of Peten or on the salty shores of Rio Dulce.

5 ) Talented, professional wedding planners & vendors

As Guatemala’s tourism industry grows, so does its wedding industry. Talented, reliable, and stylish wedding planners are just an email away, waiting to organize everything from transport to food to decorations. Most of these planners speak English, so you won’t have to worry about getting your ideas across and fulfilled in a timely and organized manner. You can trust Pilu from Dream Events to create a picturesque event in one of Antigua’s many ruin sites, Thelma from Sparks Fine Event Planning or Gladys, from Saguzo Eventos to design the perfect floral centerpieces for your reception. Count on Doris and Paulo from Decor & Planning to pull together a chic backdrop for your intimate ceremony, or Jorge from Wedding and Life to put together a great wedding package for you. These and many more are professionals who love what they do and do incredible work.

6) You can have a smaller, more intimate wedding

Along the lines of saving money, you’ll also cut costs and reduce your stress-level by slimming down your list of invitees and making sure that only your closest friends and family will be sharing your special day with you. Many couples complain that they never got a chance to really spend quality time with their guests because they were so busy greeting one person to the next. Why not take your time and enjoy each moment with the people who have traveled so far to celebrate with you? And why not enjoy those moments in a picturesque location that will give your guests a truly unforgettable experience?

7) Easy & safe transportation for you and your guests

Nowadays, as long as you have an internet connection you can coordinate most aspects of any wedding.  This definitely goes for planning destination weddings in Guatemala.  Not only have Guatemala’s travel agencies made themselves easier to reach but some of them even allow you to book transport through their website.  You can book last-minute trips or adventures in advance.  Most of these agencies, like Atitrans, even have a 24-hour phone number in case you need to make last minute cancellations or modifications for shuttles and other transport. destination wedding guatemala

8 ) Opportunities to decompress for honeymooners

Once your amazing day has passed, Guatemala is the perfect place as a romantic honeymoon location. Spend your first days as newlyweds receiving massages, spa treatments, and simply relaxing in one of Guatemala’s beautiful resorts or hotels. Need a change of ambience? If you’ve just had your gorgeous wedding on Lake Atitlan, take a shuttle to Livingston for a Caribbean beach-side getaway. After your chic rustic celebration in Antigua, head to Monterrico for colorful, romantic sunsets on the Pacific Ocean. You can choose to relax or head out for a grand, newlywed adventure to the ruins of Tikal.  The honeymoon options are endless! destination wedding guatemala

9 ) Create a memorable adventure for you and your guests

Twenty years from now, you won’t want to look back at your wedding and just think, “Gee, that was a fun night.” You’d probably rather look back and think, “My wedding was such an ADVENTURE.” Your friends and family will have traveled by plane, bus, and maybe even by boat to arrive to your wedding, they will be immersed in a completely different culture, and see things they could never have imagined. Your wedding day won’t just be another excuse for a vacation, your wedding day will be an experience that will hold a place in you and your guests’ minds and hearts for years to come. Would you rather have your guests leave your wedding with a bag of goodies or would you rather have them leave with a new perspective and loads of stories to tell back home? destination wedding guatemala

10 ) Vibrant local culture

If you decide to marry in Guatemala, you can expect happy smiles from the locals who truly enjoy sharing their gorgeous country with others. The local Maya culture is truly distinct and its history dates back thousands of years. Upon arrival, you’ll notice brightly colored textiles, handcrafted goods, and decorations that distinguish this culture from what you might expect in Central America. With over 23 different spoken languages in entire country, your experience here is bound to be unique.

11 ) Exciting adventurous activities

Worried about your guests getting bored during their stay? Guatemala boasts a wide variety of outdoor and adventure activities, including hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, zip-lining, and even paragliding. You can also get lost in the jungles of Northern Guatemala by exploring the world famous Tikal Mayan ruins. In addition to loads of tours and other excursions, you can help your guests make an adventure out of your wedding celebration. Coordinating trips is also super easy; with online access to bus and shuttle companies, the possibilities are unlimited!

12 ) Guatemala is growing

Tourism is the second biggest industry in Guatemala comprising nearly 15% of the country´s GDP. Over 2 million tourists visited Guatemala in 2013. This means that organizing, coordinating and planing every aspect of your wedding and trip to Guatemala is easier than ever. Since the late 90’s Guatemala’s tourism industry has grown by about 15% each year. Guatemala and its wedding vendors are connecting more via the internet. Pages like Perhaps You Need a Little Guatemala inspire visitors and locals by sharing photos and content that feature the many wonders of this incredible country. Even Martha Stewart weddings has noticed the huge potential that Guatemala has as a destination wedding location.  More and more visitors are discovering what makes this country such a special place and as such, more brides and grooms are finding it to be their ideal wedding location.

13 ) Delicious, high-quality cuisine

Since agriculture is also one of Guatemala’s biggest industries, delicious, fresh food is never too hard to find. With so many visitors, Guatemala’s culinary industry is also growing and adapting to different tastes and flavors. You can find cooks from Argentina grilling spiced meats, typical Guatemalan food and Japanese chefs rolling fresh sushi in places like Antigua and Panajachel. You can also find delicious Italian-made pizza and of course many locals who would love to whip up some traditional Guatemalan dishes for your wedding day. Is your mouth watering yet?

14 ) Gorgeous, colorful (and cheap) floral decorations

In addition to fresh, tasty food you’ll also find that the blooms in Guatemala are some of the rarest, most colorful on earth. Fresh roses and colorful orchids will bring an unmatched design element to your wedding. Also, since many of these flowers are grown here in Guatemala, finding the perfect floral decorations and blossoms for your bouquet and buttoniere will be easy, cheap, and fun.

Tips on how to get the best out of your wedding photography in Guatemala

We love shooting weddings here in Guatemala, we truly think it is one of the most beautiful places on earth & a fantastic location for a destination wedding. While we would love to take all of the credit for some of the beautiful images that we have produced in the past, we must admit that at some level, the couples we are photographing are crucial to capturing the intimate, beautiful and artistic photographs that we are proud to call our ownbest wedding photography guatemala

Really, wedding photography is a two-way street. Inasmuch as the wedding photographer is required to bring certain skills to be able to fulfill their work, there are also a few things that couples can keep in mind to get the most out of their best wedding photography Guatemala. Here are our biggest pieces of advice: best wedding photography guatemala

Wedding Photographer Lake Atitlan Guatemala
1) TIMING

It’s important to understand that on any given wedding day, things can & will run late. That’s why it’s important to consider & discuss the timeline & schedule with your photographer ahead of time. No amount of planning can guarantee that everything will run exactly to the minute, which is why it’s important to consider timing for sessions and other photos that you’ll want from the final product of your wedding photography. If you have to, buffer an extra 15-30 minutes for each activity of the day, so even if one part runs late, the rest of the day’s schedule isn’t altered drastically. best wedding photography guatemala

Another thing to consider is that the perfect photographic lighting is just about an hour before sunset, which creates an even, golden glow that makes everyone look amazing. So if you have priorities for the photos during the ceremony, family formals or an intimate session as newlyweds, try to plan these photos around that particular time of day in order to guarantee some amazing images. As a rule of thumb, the best time for a ceremony to be is in terms of light here in Guatemala is between 2 and 4pm. That allows enough time for family formals & an artistic session of the two of you.

Finally, while you might think that family formals might only take 10 quick minutes, the harsh reality is that they don’t. Either one of the groomsman is in the bathroom or someone can’t find grandma, and that means that family formals can be the most chaotic moment of the day. That’s why it’s helpful to have someone who is familiar with your important family members that can help you round everyone up and organize them into groups. This can help streamline the process and get everyone on his or her way to the reception.

2) MEET UP OR TALK WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS AHEAD OF TIME

Similarly as in tip #1, it’s so, so important to communicate with your photographer ahead of time, either via video chat or a coffee in person (we prefer the second one). That way your photographer will have exactly the vision you have in mind for your photographs. You can also clear up any concerns you might have or let them know about any surprises that might happen that you really want captured.

A short meeting can give you a chance to get to know your photographer and to feel comfortable with them. If it works out that you can also have an engagement shoot with them, even better. That way you understand how they work and you can communicate any unflattering poses or ideas that you may love or hate. Either way, it’s great to keep the communication open with your photographer throughout the entire process. Plus, we’re really nice and love having a good time, so it’s a win-win for everybody!

3) DO A SMALL, INTIMATE SESSION DURING YOUR WEDDING DAY WITH JUST THE TWO OF YOU.

Photos like these don’t just come out of nowhere:

We cannot stress the importance of a short 15-30 minute photo session with you and your new husband or wife, away from your guests, enjoying the first moments of being married. This is the perfect opportunity to have a quiet, special moment with your new life partner and really enjoy being together. These are the moments during which you’re going to get that one, perfect shot that will be put up on a wall, plastered on the cover on an album and be THE photo of your wedding day.

Honestly, the more time the better, but we leave that up to you. If we have more time, we have more opportunities to take more creative, compelling images. This also means that you’ll have more of these images to choose from. If you really don’t feel like taking time away from your guests, we highly recommend either a short session the day after or another time to capture those romantic, artistic photographs that you’ll look back on for a lifetime.

4) UNCLE BOB

There’s an industry term for the family member or wedding guest that arrives with their semi-professional camera gear and plans on taking the photos for the day. We call them “Uncle Bob.” Uncle Bob might think that he’s doing you a favor by covering everything that your contracted photographer might be missing, but trust us, he is not. There have been moments where photographers’ shots are ruined (even just by an extra flash) because Uncle Bob really wanted that first kiss shot from the perfect angle. It has also happened where the paid photographer actually had to ask Uncle Bob to move out of the frame during family formal photos. So do yourself (and us) a favor and tell Uncle Bob to leave his gear at home so he can just enjoy the wedding day of his loved ones.

You can also take this even further by having an “un-plugged” weddingbest wedding photography guatemala

5) INTRODUCE THE PHOTOGRAPHER TO YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY

best wedding photography guatemala

When the big day arrives and the photographer shows up to the wedding, they usually have absolutely no idea who anyone is apart from the couple (presuming you heeded the advice of #2). That means that we don’t know which of the guests is your parents, your uncles or just family friends. So if you really want to make sure we get lots of shots of your adorable grandparents or your great aunt who raised you as a child, make sure you let your photographer know who those people are. This also helps your guests get comfortable with having their photo taken, since most people are less comfortable when being photographed by a complete stranger. best wedding photography guatemala

6) SMILE (REALLY!)

While this one might be obvious, the nerves of the wedding day might prevent you from fully enjoying amazing moments during one of the most important days of your life. These nerves are often translated right into facial expressions, meaning that you might end up with more photos with serious or concerned looks than you had expected. With that in mind, try as much as you can to let go of any stresses and just enjoy the day as it happens. All weddings are different and unique in their own way, some things happen perfectly and some things don’t, and these photos are what you’ll remember of the day. Why not make them as happy as you were? best wedding photography guatemala
