If you marry in a town like Silverton, in the state of Colorado, the least you can do is to have your guests coming to spend a whole weekend. Silverton is a village of about 600 inhabitants in the middle of the mountains. It maintains the essence of being a mining town and has a lot of charm. For this wedding the couple wanted that all their guests took part of it.They proposed that everyone arrived the day before and so among all do the decorating, place the room, install the stage, decorate the tables … It was the perfect excuse for everyone knew each other before and they all feel they are part of this wedding. When everything was already prepared Jeffro and Amanda brought some food and drinks. The town was full of tourists and with a lot of ambient. The next morning everyone was having breakfast together, in barber shops or going together for a walk in the mountains. I’m sure that people spent a memorable weekend. I made a lot friends and ended up dancing like the most ☺

I recommend you see the whole wedding in my portfolio.

My prewedding shootings I like to call them Contact Session. If I remarried, I do not hesitate to have one of these sessions with my photographer. Try before the wedding your the photographer. I really recommend it. I find it an advantage to know before the couple so that we all are more confident. Understanding each other very well is very important in the wedding day because everything happen very quickly.

To meet in advance means to be able to the your story in a better way.

Back to my old neighborhood of Williamsburg in Brooklyn to photograph this adorable couple was very nice.

It will be a beautiful wedding, I ‘m sure.

Three years ago I move to New York City for a season with my partner. Almost when we were running out of our visa I asked him to marry me. I was in Arizona filming a documentary and I did it by Skype ☺

When I returned to New York, the first thing I did, was look for my dress. I did not want a classic wedding dress but something special. I was lucky and I found it in the first store I went. Immediately afterwards I went to buy my partner’s suit. We knew we were getting married with our shoes Vans. The day came and we went to a barber shop in Brooklyn. I loved my hairstyle, kind of Merylin Monroe. I think it fits very well with the style of dress. I recommend every couple who travel to NYC to get married. It is a very easy and fast process. You take a number, as in the butcher´s shop, and make a queue where you find other couples from Russia, China, European … The ceremony and the decoration is more seedy but fun. It costs only $75 and is one of the best memories that you can take from the city. When we left the City Hall we were right in China Town and we were all trogether to celebrate our wedding. We have our witness and a couple of friends, nobody else.

Post Wedding

It happened to all of us that the day of the wedding you feel you have run a lot and you have not been able to look like the occasion deserved. I always recommend the 40 minutes to make the shooting with only the couple, but it always ends with 15 minutes or less . In my opinion, that moment in the day is very important because is the unique moment where the couple are alone in a beautiful location.

If the wedding day you could not stay along enough and you like photography , do not hesitate to put on your dress. You can do things lke:

Vietnam

El día que me dijo mi hermano mayor que se iba a casar con Anna me hizo mucha ilusión. El problema, por decirlo de alguna manera, es que la boda era en Vietnam y solo podíamos ir mi madre y yo en representación de toda la familia de España.  Enseguida me ofrecí para hacerles las fotografías de su boda. Ellos encantados aunque mi cuñada me iba soltando de vez en cuando que me tenía una sorpresa preparada.

La sorpresa era que me había hecho un vestido para que fuera una de sus cuatro damas de honor y habían contratado a otro fotógrafo para que no tuviera que trabajar el día de su boda. VAYA FASTIDIO! Como formaba parte del espectáculo no podía ni subir la cámara al escenario y era la primera vez que me ponía un vestido palabra de honor, algo incómodo, por cierto.

Lo que más me chocó de la boda que no fue nada tradicional. Todo estaba totalmente americanizado. Algo de gracia tenía.  Había un escenario donde se casaron mientras los invitados van cenando. Después de algunas actuaciones y al terminar la cena, la boda se daba por concluida.

Aunque mi madre y yo solo estuviésemos 5 días en Hanoi, la boda era casi lo de menos. Lo que más nos gustó eran las comidas familiares en casas de unos y otros durante esos cinco días. Eso sí que fueron cinco días de tradición, culinarios 100% y familiares.
