Winter Wedding In Viña del Mar, Chile ( Costanza & Francisco )

It;s not often I shoot a winter wedding in Chile as there are not many and I am often in United States and Canada at this time of year shooting in their summer weding season. However, this time I was here and glad I was as this was truely a fantastic wedding and a great couple, these guys and their guests had no difficulty when it came to having a great time.

The day started out with Coni, her mum and dad, sister and friends starting preperation at the Radison Hotel in Concon. The amazing GORAN KURTE ( tel 8925 4482 / email was a great choice for the days makeup. I have worked with Goran in the past (Elyiecia & Ivan) and he is simply brilliant!.

so.....during the prep I took the chance to skoot off and catch a few shots with dress and shoes which is difficult in this hotel becathey do not let yuse the public foyer and roof space for taking these images, but, me being me....bla bla bla

Now what about that dress and those shoes ?

After all that it was time to put it all together and get the bride on the roofome shots before we all head off to the ceremony

Clocks tickin  !!... lets go.... time for Dad to walk Coni up the Isle

This is the cutest cheekiest smile ever


Party Time

NOW !, in this case I admit I had everything to do with this....

BUT !, I had NOTHING to do with this lol ....

Chileans sure love their Parties....gimmie gimmie gimmie

The Happy Couple didnt just party like animals...

and last but never least I caught this shot of Mauricio trying out his new "Blending In Camoflage" PLOP!

Great Job guys, this wedding shook the winter blues out of everyone

Elyiecia & Ivan ( Toronto, Canada ) en Vina del mar Chile Boda / Trash the Dress

Elyiecia and Ivan ( Toronto, Canada ) Sheraton Miramar , Vina del Mar

Fotografia de boda / Trash the dress
Just a few of my favourites before the story begins

I dont know where to start in this post. Elyiecia feels more like my sister than my bride client due to our extensive emailing skype-ing and facebooking over several months on the lead up to the big day.

 Its amazing how what starts off as a formal dealing online can turn into a friendship. We had so many laughs before we even met I just knew we would all work great together.

The day started off with bridal preparation….
ok so here we go...first up Elieycia was feeling a little under twhe stress of planning and international destination wedding so we were keeping a close eye on here

Now lets see....what wedding dress should you wear today Elyiecia ?

love the cool is that?

Elyiecia suffered a very bad foot injury before comming to Chile so I thought this o would be a great memory of the days fashion footwear.

a little risky but the Sheraton is not too high  ( QUACK)
Now since these guys were doing their preparation in the same place we had to think of something to keep the tradition safe.. I SAID NO PEEKING ELYIECIA !! geez

now lets go with Mr Groom

Pass me the rings please Ivan..
and with them being such huge MAC fans...

I said Kiss her Dude, Not drop her !!

a beautiful little moment between the bride and her mother

The "Tiffany Box Cake" and Sushi Grooms cake by

I think he likes it !!!

The sweet couple

The crazy gang from Toronto

Now, Like Brides Do....STARBUCKS

Time for a quick foto out front

NOW  THE POOL ....I promise you...its heated

Ok I mean it's NOT heated...sorry about that lol


Dear Wedding Photo Chile,

I wish I could have created my own options from the pull down menu above for example:

Question: "Overall service?...."
Answer: "You guys are crazy!"  lol :)

To be completely honest, I'm so thankful to have found you guys. As you know photography has always been very important to us, so when we were planning our wedding; finding top photographers abroad (who also spoke English) was our main priority.

From the very first point of contact you made everything FUN, SMOOTH & PROFICIENT...You even assisted with areas that were not your field (such as helping us find a venue) & counselling us during stressful times.

I don't feel a "client/photographer relationship" ever really existed with us and I appreciate that because thats what made our experience and pictures turn out so special! To work with two men that made our experience so personable was such an honour! You both put heaps of dedication, expertise, patience and passion into your work. MUCHOS GRACIAS POR TODO!!!!!

Elyiecia & Ivan Acosta. Toronto, Canada
