Day 1 – Jose Villa Wedding Photography Workshop in Mexico

After a full morning in the beautiful hacienda barn we came to call our classroom, each afternoon we got to take our cameras out into the Mexican sunshine for some practical assignments. Today’s; each photographer had three minutes each with two gorgeous couples to take off into the hacienda grounds and photograph as we’d choose. Most of my work for the week was shot on film, but here’s a selection of what I shot on digital:









Location: Hacienda El Carmen, Mexico

Hair & Make-up: Mar of Team Hair and Makeup

Flowers: Flower Wild Design

Engagement Clothing: Everly

Hair Accessories: Mignonne
