Carolina and Manuel (Houston, TX) Wedding Vina Matetic, Chile

Guess where we are  ?

Carolina and Manuel have been planning this big day now for quite a while and it has been fun talking with Carolina on Skype over the last few months.  While I am still editing images from this full day event it is time to post a few images for a little sneek peek.

This first image totally sums up these two adorable people who gave us all plenty of laughs throughout the day. Given the chance Manuel will take the comedy option and always puts a huge smile on Carolinas face.


SO...back to the story....Preperation.....Shoes.....Rings......and all things wedding. Just a couple of shots to set the scene

A Dress.....A Vineyard....Say No More

And while I am off playing with details the guests begin to arrive

Nice to see someone is running on time...Nice one Manny!!

Carolina gets a little help with these hard to reach places....

and just a few finnishing touches and shes looking amazing !!

Now everyone is happy, including little 9 Month old Tomas. We shot his baptism just a few weeks ago and he was a star...simpy the most relaxed and photogenic 9 month old boy I have ever met

With the Spanish (Spain) influence in this wedding, some beautiful guitar music set the scene perfectly.
...even the musicians were smiling

The guests with their awesome white parasols start to head off to the ceremony location

Mauricio captures a shot of the twins with the rings before they skoot off to the alter

Here Comes the Bride, La la la laaaaa....

Do yo....? .... I Do...!!! ....Do you....? .....I Do...!!!

Now...THATS A ROCK...!

Its a Done Deal   !!

Now its time to take the happy couple for a wander through the gardnens at Vina Matetic and catch some shots among the wonderful colors

Used a little technique on this photo to bring an extreme clarity

Mauricio made great use of an outdoor mirror here...nicely done !

Great capture Mauricio


I had scouted this shot about 2 months ago when I took trip into Matetic and loved the use of the window frame to abstract this composition a little
Just before heading off to the cocktail I gave the couple a chance to relax and give me a chance to catch some candid photos at the same time, as I was taking position in the bushes a lovely old dog wandered over to see what all the fuss was about. A very cute moment and worth remembering for the couple

This was an awesome wedding with a super nice group of people. and a great choice of location guys. Thanks for everything

and the sun closes on a perfect day

John & Joanna, Vina Indomita, Casablanca, Chile 22-Nov 2011

Joanna came to me through a contact via an online haunt for gringos in and out of chile. A man by the name of Mike called me one day to see if I could cover the wedding photography of the neice of a friend of his, all very distant and confusing but on the Sunday before the wedding (Monday) at 7pm John and Joanna arrived at the Sheraton Miramar in Vina del mar for our pre arranged meeting to talk through any last minute details. Upon meeting both John and Joanna I instantly got a great vibe that this smaller and extreemly personlized event was going to be a dream to photograph. Here are some mainly detail oriented photos of the day.

Monday started at the hotel 11am sharp : Bridal preperation with novia and her Two very funny sisters.

I couldn't help myself...I had to take this next shot..  loving it !!

Ok ....So while all that was going on it was time for me to steal the dress and shoes and run around the Sheraton hiding from the groom

Can you spot the dress...?  If Joanna only knew what I was doing with her dress !!

Last minute details...

OK  now Joanna is ready, time to get her on the balcony to cool off before heading down to the Lincon
Trust me ..! she's there !!

and off we go !!

A very private and unique ceremony took place at the Vineyard hence the more generic images posted

Do these bridal shoes ROCK  or what !!

After the ceremony John and & Joanna headed up to the terrace to await their guests

Did someone say "COCKTAIL"?

Did someone say "LUNCH"?
One of the several toasts to this wonderfull couple

I loved the fact that Joanna had considered flowers for all the principle ladies at this event, and I loved the way the light was hittig them as they all took a drink while the wedding group had lunch.

With lunch over I had time to take the newlyweds for some informal portraits in the awesome location.

and to end the day...always with a kiss...This was an awesome day with a truely great bunch of people. Thanks guys for your patience and for agreeing to go to all the other crazy locations I dragged you too .
