San Miguel de Allende Wedding Photography, Ken and Julie´s Destination Wedding in the Heart of Mexico at the Hacienda Las Trancas
April 10, 2008
Having photographed a wedding at the Hacienda Las Trancas some months ago, I knew a little bit of what I was getting into when Ken contacted me about photographing his wedding to Julie at the Hacienda Las Trancas outside of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Basically, the hacienda is a historic site that has been restored in a very loving way. It has a warm and intimate Mexican atmosphere that is simply perfect for a destination wedding. How considerate, photogenic and fun Ken and Julie and their families and friends would prove to be was a complete surprise and icing on the cake! I loved the color images but also thought the black and white photographs had a timeless beauty. Thank you, Ken and Julie! I hope your travels bring you to the Yucatán sometime soon!
Getting ready photographs. I love to do these because of the anticipation and range of emotions. Everyone is too busy with the preparations to worry at all about the camera. I think just about every bride wonders at the last moment if the dress is really going to zip or button up…such a relief when it does!

The grounds of the hacienda are so unique, Ken and Julie and sitting by the door to the secret garden.

Empieza la ceremonia…
The reception was held near the fountain, this area had been floored since I last visited the hacienda. If you look carefully you may be able to see the horses in their stables.
Two of the guests were professional salsa dancers, they gave a wonderful demonstration and class to the guests, it was amazing how quickly (most) everyone learned!

Erin and Jim, San Miguel de Allende Wedding at the Hacienda Las Trancas
August 15, 2007
For those unfamiliar with Mexico, San Miguel de Allende is located very far from the Yucatan Peninsula where I live. The landscape, architecture, history and even the light are very different in the two places. Erin and Jim chose to be married in the historic Hacienda Las Trancas in the countryside between Dolores Hidalgo and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It was a beautiful, intimate celebration and I felt so fortunate to be able to document the wedding, as well as photograph Erin and Jim more informally in the colorful town of San Miguel de Allende. ¡Felicidades Erin y Jim!
I arrived from the airport just in time for this relaxed portrait session near the main square of San Miguel de Allende.
The people passing by thought that Erin and Jim were models, they were so surprised to hear that they would be getting married in a few days!
The wedding day…the weather could not have been more perfect.
I have never really been into roses, but I think Erin made me a believer. They were AMAZING.
I loved this shot of the guys in the hacienda corridor.

The ceremony was held in the hacienda’s courtyard, so beautiful.
