Raul & Consuelo, Las Condes, Santiago, Chile

Raul &Consuelo ( Boda Las Condes Santiago )

It has been nearly two years since I shot the very personal civil wedding of Raul and Consuelo staged at the brides family home in Jardin del mar. Both Raul and Consuelo were insistent on that day they would want me to shoot their church wedding in the future and they sure meant it as they booked me nearly a year in advance. I really thought it was great to be shooting a friends wedding and i was not wrong. These guys and their families made me feel like I was a guest more than the photographer. Many of the guest already knew me from the civil wedding so it made them much more footloose and fancyfree when it came to relaxing in front of the camera. With preperation at the Marriot Hotel in las Condes Santiago amd the groom prep at home it was once again the best chronology to visit the groom first then spend more time shooting Consuelo and her gang getting ready.

This wedding was at that great little church in las Condes Santiago where weddingphotochile has covered several weddings now and its always a pleasure to shoot there. Even although it was dark after the ceremony we used the city to light the way and had some great fun before heading off to the grand centro de evento La Casona Las Condes

So lets start with Raul and Jack Daniels getting ready

On te wall behind is the HUGE chronology planner these guys had above their bed to plan this HUGE wedding... Im sure I am up there somwhere..!  in the bottom left corner is a photo I took of them 2 years ago...awww, made me feel all wecome lol
While Raul and his Papa were taking care of his dressing details it was time to gt the rins and s what risky shot I can take to get my heart pumping  ...
Ah Yeah  that will do it....after all...its only the 14th floor...Consuelos gonna kill me...again lol

Salud from Raul and his best friend  JACK
