A Dia De Los Muertos Bridal Shoot

Jacqueline & Erik were the lucky models who got to play dress up with Michelle Logan of Urban Shutter Bug Photography. Jacqueline had this killer idea to have a shoot styled around the Mexican holiday Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). What might seem like a morbid theme to some, Dia De Los Muertos is in fact the exact opposite – it is a celebration to honour your loved ones who have passed.

Chihuahuas, Cupcakes & Cuddles

“I’m no model,” bride to be Angela’s email began, “but I just got a sneak peek of our engagement session photos and I love them so much I thought I would share.”

“No model?” I thought, “not only does that not matter in the slightest but I might actually have to disagree with her a little bit there. She is totally gorgeous!”

Angela,  her fiance Luc and their two chihuahuas Minou & Birdie (there’s no way we can ignore them!) had a beautiful session to celebrate their engagement. The couple, who will be marrying in Mexico next May, wanted a variety of shots from casual ones with the dogs to ones with ridiculous props and finally to a few on a golf course. “Because my sweetie loves golf we went to a golf course and tried to have a vintage feel to the pics… Don’t know how much of a vintage feel we got but I don’t care – I love them!” Angela told me.”I love that our photographer got pics of my purple fluevogs and Luc’s black sabbath converse. She even took pictures of a silly card Luc made for me while they waited for me to get home from work, and pictures of the dogs on the couch posing.”

Day of the Dead and Lots & Lots of Lovely Balloons

Beatriz & Ricardo got married early this month in Cartagena, a colonial city on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Born here, Beatriz knew she wanted to return back to this special place to get married. They had a gorgeous civil service a few days before the wedding. “Weddings tend to be so cookie cutter and sooo traditional, we were sure we didn’t want that” the bride told me. “The first tradition we broke was not getting married in a church, we decided to just have a civil ceremony; but a friend of us told us that civil ceremonies were so plain and that we should do something special, so we decided to go to the notary to get married in Bogotá a few days before the actual wedding in Cartagena and to have a very special ceremony.”

Mexican Themed Wedding with a Tattoo Twist

Courtney & Dan got married at MGM signature patio, Las Vegas, and had their Rock n Rollin’ Reception at Diego’s restaurant in MGM. The couple both love Cinco De Mayo, collect hot sauce, their first date was at a Mexican restaurant and they love Mariachi bands, so the wedding has a slight Mexican theme.

Courtney originally had a traditional wedding dress, but a few days before she got on the plane to Vegas she went to the fitting to find her dress was to small. It was fate! Courtney knew there wasn’t going to be enough time to fix it, so she went to a prom shop in Philadelphia and found this gorgeous dress.

A Bustling Flurry Of Exhilaration

When thinking about Mexico, the images that swim around my head (that is, after tequila and fajitas of course) are a fabulous and brightly colour hubbub of excitement. A bustling flurry of exhilaration. To me, my assumption is definitely reflected in their amazing portraits – just check out that yellow wall!

The Bride, Dana, described their wedding vision to me:
I am from Boston and my husband is from Mexico City. We live in Boston, but I wanted to share his amazing culture and the unique city with my family and friends so we decided to have a destination wedding. Our theme was modern meets classic with a major emphasis on something that has always bound us: our love of music. The ceremony was done set to our favorite songs—a mix of alternative rock and classic Mexican music. Mexico City is in itself, a huge mix of styles and old meets new, so we really played that up in our choices for the whole 4-day experience. Modern hotel and flashy nightclub outings, mixed with a traditional hacienda wedding locale and a live mariache band.
