Carlos Y Gretel | Oaxaca, Mexico Wedding

Oaxaca is a legendary town made famous by many photographers and artists capturing its magic. For years I’ve enjoyed looking at National Geographic and Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey’s work from here. But I never dreamed that I’d get to shoot pictures of a colorful wedding in the heart of Oaxaca’s Zocalo on my first trip to the region. Gretel is a Mexican painter whose work can be found at galleries and auctions worldwide. Her style of decorating her wedding in as much color as possible was amazing to photograph. During the ceremony, at the Church of Santo Domingo de Guzm├ín, most of us couldn’t help being distracted by the details of this spectacular building, which was completed in 1666. After the Catholic Mass, all of us marched 16 blocks through town to the Oaxaca Cultural Institute for a reception that lasted until dawn. It was fun to reunite with my videographer friends from San Miguel De Allende, who call themselves Cinelab SMA. The well-known and talented photographer Rafa Ibanez flew in from Monterey and helped me photograph the wedding. His gentle approach and eye for light was a huge asset for an unforgettable weekend in one of Mexico’s most beautiful colonial cities.
