Sofia and David's pre-wedding photoshoot and drinks party, San Miguel de Allende
Pre-Wedding Photos and Drinks
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
I had photographed the wedding of the sister of this groom exactly a year beforehand and was happy to be back photographing this lovely and extremely fun family and group of friends. This time the wedding was to be in San Miguel de Allende rather than Mexico City though. This welcome drinks party was to be held at the bride's grandmother's stunning house in the centre of San Miguel, where the bride had spent many happy weekends and holidays as throughout her life. I met the couple there before going out for a very short walk on the streets around the house to take some photographs of them together, before the rush and formality of the wedding the following day. The drinks party was full of loving speeches about the bride and groom which is always one of my favourite parts of any wedding events I shoot, learning snippets about the lives and past lives of these people with whom I am becoming so familiar through the viewfinder. It never fails to move me to get a glimpse into how much the couple whose wedding I am photographing are loved by the people that surround them on this very special occasion.
