Vanessa + Michael | San Miguel De Allende Wedding

When it rains in San Miguel De Allende it only seems to make this place more romantic and magical. The San Miguel De Allende Parroquia, a famous landmark visible from most vantage points in town, is where Vanessa and Michael had their wedding ceremony. Their catholic mass was the first event I photographed inside of this historic building. They both got ready at Hotel Casa Rosada and their reception was at the private residence, Villas Xido. There is no wedding like those done by Penzi Weddings and Events. Like a wedding photographer with his or her own style, Guadalupe and her team have their own look and feel. Their attention to detail, hard work and authenticity continues to amaze me. What I appreciate about Michael is his quiet wisdom, demand for perfection and willingness to do anything for pictures. Vanessa was a dream to work with. Her stunning features and easy laugh made her my favorite subject in recent memory. Congratulations to Photographer Kristina Cazares Neri for expecting a baby! She traveled all the way to Mexico while pregnant to photograph this wedding with me.


Mahya + Enrique | San Miguel De Allende Wedding

Mahya and Enrique are crazy about photography which is why we are crazy about them. Their Mexican / Persian fusion wedding was in one of my favorite places – San Miguel De Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Their rehearsal dinner and ceremony were at Casa Cece. The reception, overlooking San Miguel Cathedral, was at The Instituto Allende, a place where art is taught and one reason this place is so famous among foreigners. Wedding photographers love San Miguel De Allende for it’s colorful architecture and beautiful light. However this rainy day didn’t stop us from wandering around the center taking portraits and having fun. The event planner was Guadalupe Alvarez of Penzi Weddings.

Samantha + Daniel | San Miguel De Allende Wedding

Sam and Dani’s wedding was an amazing weekend in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico during Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead.) The Civil Ceremony and rehearsal dinner, which to me was wedding number one, was at the spectacular Casa Hyder. Samantha got ready at Casa Novum close to the Jardin and the wedding ceremony and reception were both at San Joaquin. I felt like I was in the right crowd with this wedding since the couple and many of their guests are photographers and filmmakers. Guadalupe and her huge team at Penzi weddings did a fabulous job as usual. Photography by Brett Butterstein and Jamie Lawler.



I find myself falling in love with this country more and more and travel here multiple times a year. The colorful towns, beaches, passionate and romantic culture and festive atmosphere make this one of my favorite places to photograph.



San Miguel has become a favorite place of mine, so finally getting to shoot a wedding here was really exciting. Meredith and Daniel’s Shaman wedding ceremony was not only incredibly unique and spiritual, but very emotional and extremely photogenic. The ceremony and reception took place at Casa Schuck. The event was planned by Meengan and Guadalupe at Penzi Weddings and Events. They are incredible at what they do but also spoiled me during my entire stay. One of the most magical moments of the day was when the wedding party paraded through the cobble stone streets drinking a total of eight bottles of tequila.
