The Shot

It was an exceptionally happy and sunny day. Margaret and Sergio shone all day and night, so much love and happiness surrounded them like an aura and it obviously shows in all their photos. 🙂

My wife and co-founder Melissa, had Margaret & Sergio, a lovely couple from New York, in a magnificent Villa in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We were having a blast during their session and I wanted something very special for them, as they mentioned they wanted to include the wheelchair in the photos. The place was superb, with colonial architecture and decor, besides, they both were glowing and so much in love with each other, so it was a perfect shoot.

No difficulties during the wedding or this shot. The light was spectacular all day. I used a Nikon D750 and a 35mm 1.4 Sigma Art lens at that time. Settings: 1/250 F/6.3 ISO 300. I exposed to Margaret’s skin

I wanted a totally different composition and when I saw this mirror right next to the entrance of the villa, I knew there was something special to be done there, playing with a frame and a silhouette at the same time.

In post I just used my Black & White preset with a little dodge and burn here and there and recuperating shadows. I don’t like to spend too much time in post-production.

We had a blast shooting Margaret and Sergio’s wedding and session, they are such and amazing and unique couple. It was a wonderful experience working for them, consequently, they loved their photos as much as we did. Their wedding and session also gave us some international awards, so we are really proud and honored to have been there covering their beautiful day.
