Enchanted Guatemala

Ashley and Carlo shine right through the unsettled Gautemalan “Winter” weather at La Reunion outside La Antigua.

When Carlo and Ashley asked me about photographing their wedding in Guatemala, a place that has captivated my spirit since I first journeyed there 5 years ago, I created a vision in my mind from the start. I have to say that our pre-wedding shoot-around surpassed even my wildest visions of “what-could-be”.  With my buddy, Brynmore Williams, shooting stellar video and my incredible friend, Jacobo Quan Hidalgo, sherpa-ing equipment and holding lights, we were able to capture some beautiful scenes.

We started the day at Casa Santo Domingo where we will photograph their wedding this Saturday. From there we moved on to these little known and barely visited ruins just blocks away from all the tourista traps in the center of La Antigua.  This was Jacobo’s secret find. Once a beautiful church it was destroyed by an earthquake and subsequent flood in the 1600s. Now it is owned by the mayor of Antigua.

Guacamayas mate for life and these two kept us busy while we waited for Ashley and Carlo to primp.
