I was super excited to work with these guys and was introduced to them through Ainhoa's cousin Francisca who happens to be a wedding planner who I worked with on the recent wedding of Connie and Alberto in Pirque, just south of Santiago for their country Zen Wedding.
This happy couple had chosen the stunning location of El Cuardo and this after 4 years in Chile would be my first event here so I was totally pumped as I have seen this location several times but never had the pleasure of having a client there. Within the majestic grounds of this vineyard is the main casona, the bodega and a wonderful Church. The Church itself is very modern but has great light as it contains two full walls of windows and an amazing wooden curved ceiling which gives the place a kind of NOAHS ARK feel which I thought was unique and stunning.
The day started off SEBASTIAN FERRER Hair and Make up located in Vina del Mar. Ainhoa, her mother, aunt , sister and Two friends pretty much took over the place and gave us a great laugh while all the prep was taking place. Again this was a first shooting in this location and while loving all the mirrors and reflection photos it's always a challenge not to photograph ones self in a room full of mirrors.
After all the bridal preparation El Cuadro, the event location, received the bride to the church in a stunning carriage truly fit for a princess. This was not your normal horse and cart in Chile and Ainhoa looked stunning as she pulled up in it.
This was a great ceremony to shoot for me, not just the light but the priest was making jokes and making every one laugh. Perfect for me and a great result for the bride and groom
After the ceremony we returned to the cocktail for a little bit then off to shoot around the grounds in a little portrait photography session for the Bride and Groom, great gardens and awesome scenery in the backgrounds... LOVED IT
the semi open air dinner followed by a rather crazy party rounded the night down around 4am but not before getting the bride and groom outside for one night shot.
This was a stunning event and a great job by the couple and their planner. Many thanks to all.
