stevi and jose . wedding . guatemala

I think that one photograph can take one’s breath away, and that a series of photographs can whisper all the secrets of a person’s soul.  I believe that love and beauty are always there and that I am the luckiest person in the world to get to capture it.

Stevi and Jose were married near Jose’s home town in Antigua in Guatemala.  Sean and I flew down and spent a week with them and their amazing friends and families, falling in love with them all (especially Jose’s Mother who was the most gracious hostess we have ever met, we see where her son gets it from) and becoming great friends with Stevi and Jose as well.  The beauty of the place, the joy of the occasion and the wedding day itself made it all magic.

The wedding was held in The Catedral de Santiago, founded in 1542 and rebuilt after earthquakes in the 1700’s and the reception was held at the Hotel Casa Santo Doingo, beyond beautiful, the art alone took my breath away.  Thank you Stevi and Jose for letting us celebrate with you.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
