Antigua, Guatemala / international wedding photographers
Well, hello Monday. We are back from our travels abroad and want to share few personal photos from the trip. First few days there was rain but for the second half for the trip, beautiful sun and clouds came out. We enjoyed roaming the streets of Antigua Guatemala, a quaint little town surrounded by mountains and volcanoes. It’s known for it’s beautiful Church ruins, an amazing ginormous local market [boy a photographer's dream to shoot], friendly people that DON’T speak English [yay, had to use the very little Spanish I know but it was super fun to do it].
We took cooking lessons and I can now rock a Papian, beans, rice and plantain dessert – Rellenitos [I tried vegetarian version last weekend and Marcin LOVED it too!]. We climed to see the Pacaya – I almost died trying to climb to the volcano as the air is so thin and the mountain pretty steep but I made it without any “taxi” help [kids on horses making money helping tourists climb it] and the climb was so worth it! We also survived an earth quake, seriously, woke up at night in our hotel to it shaking – never experienced a building shake; it was weird and scary but we were half asleep and it lasted three seconds so we just went right back to sleep – happy it was a little and fast one.
Oh, in case you did not know, we also shot a wedding there; a super cute bride and groom in an interesting place? We could not ask for more. For now, here are some personal photos form Antigua, Guatemala. It’s amazing place worth visiting, but you know what? our little home here tucked in the forest is pretty sweet place too; we are glad to be back and with our girls; we missed them.
“Every goodbye makes the next hello closer”
We give you one photo today; because sometimes, one photo can tell a story. This is a beautiful Indian Bride saying goodbye to her family after the wedding ceremony. This was one of the most emotional goodbyes we’ve experienced and we find this frame so precious. The brother holds back tears as he looks at the bride and her father embracing and loosing themselves in tears. This is family love at it’s finest. We are away traveling right now but can’t wait to share this and many other wonderful weddings with you once we’re back. Happy Wednesday.

Dori + Mark // PA Wedding Photographers
Dori and Mark booked us pretty close to their wedding – almost last minute, despite the fact that Mark is a wedding photographer himself, or maybe it was because of that very fact. They had hard time choosing the right photog for them, I mean who can argue with that, as photographers we are very very picky. So it’s a super honor to have other photographers choose, lil’ ole us, to document their days. It humbles us every time and for this year, this is our second wedding photographer wedding.
From the minute we met with them, we had a connection, Dori’s excitement and super sweet demeanor complements Marks uber cool and chill being… they just go together and you can see it and feel it. Their wedding day was so important and their excitement about it just emanated like warm sunshine rays. It meant a long journey together and a beginning of a new one, it meant family and faith to them and most of all it meant LOVE.
Rain and thunderstorms changed plans but no one was upset, they kind of had two ceremonies because of that. It started in a beautiful outside under trees and when we heard loud thunders, right after their vowels…everyone just went inside a little chapel and the ceremony went on as skies got dark and gloomy and rain started pouring; inside their love glowed. Not long after the ceremony, the skies opened up and we went on an awesome portrait spree! Not caring about the dress, running through the fields of grass, enjoying the time together in front of our cameras. We could not ask for more. It was perfect. It was everything we hope EVERY WEDDING is; a true celebration no matter what little things don’t go as wished/planned.
There was so much emotion through out the day, Dori’s father was so awesome and expressive, their father/daughter dance was truly moving. Their whole families and friends were so warm and we had great time being part of their celebrations. Thank you.
“We love the pictures! We love re-living every moment. Our families are thrilled and continue to cry, laugh and smile as we watch them over and over again.” D&M
