Jesus & Lorena ~ Wedding in Murcia, Spain

Wedding Photographer Murcia // We try to make it back home to both the US and Spain at least once a year to visit our family. We go home usually around May or June, to catch the summer of the US and Spain, when it’s generally the rainy season here in Guatemala. Although we are based in Antigua, Guatemala, we love to have the chance to shoot weddings and do other work in new places. So when Lorena asked us to be her wedding photographer in my (Daniel’s) hometown of Murcia, Spain, we jumped at the opportunity. wedding photographer murcia

Murcia is in the southeast of Spain, a desertic and mountainous area famous for amazing lemons and olives, among many other things. Murcia is right next to Andalucia, which means that there is a bit of Flamenco influence there as well. Jesus’ family is from Andalucia so Lorena wanted to include some of this influence in her wedding, with her gorgeous mermaid-styled dress and a single bright red rose as a bouquet. During the evening of their wedding day, Jesus’ sister also performed a Flamenco dance for the couple which brought both of them to tears. wedding photographer murcia

In addition to the gorgeous setting of their wedding at El Monasterio de Los Jeronimos, we also took a walk around the centre of Murcia.  We took some beautiful wedding portraits in front of Murcia’s Cathedral, which features a variety of old architectural styles and beautiful sculptures. There were so many good places to shoot!

It was such an honor and privilege to cover a wedding in my hometown. It was also fun to look at my city with new eyes and really appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of where I grew up. Thank you Lorena & Jesus for allowing me to share such an awesome day with you and for giving me the chance to document such an beautiful event. wedding photographer murcia

And a big thanks to Antonio Marquez for your help as a second photographer for this wedding & to Pilu Delgado of Dream Events for your help in coordination and planning. We couldn’t have done all of this without you both!
