Editorial Boudoir Shoot at Casa Macaria in Puerto Escondido, México

Casa Macaria in the hip, boheme region of Puerto Escondido, México, was an incredible location for photographing the boudoir component of this editorial wedding/boudoir shoot. The private beachfront estate offers five master bedroom suites that open onto the beach, an open-air lounge and dining area with freshwater pool, and a clean, sophisticated design by the owner. The entire estate is available for rent, check out their website.

A special thanks to Sarah and Natalie of Trousseau, Ltd., in Vienna, Virginia – this shoot would have been missing its edge without the absolutely gorgeous lingerie they provided. The entire team was a joy to work with, see the contributors section below for full details.

I would also like to make special mention of lingerie designer Jane Woolrich, her work photographs beautifully and was among model Vered’s favorites – see black lace babydoll, ruffled mint and lavender swing top, long sheer blush gown with lace detail on top, and seafoam silk with lace trim on side. ~ Besos xx, Laura

Editorial Wedding Shoot at Camino Real in Bahías de Huatulco, México

So honored to have this editorial wedding shoot featured in the most recent issue of Engaged magazine! México is my second home, and when it looked like we were going to be able to do this editorial shoot, I jumped. I collaborated with an amazing team – model Vered from Contempo, Celebrity makeup artist Edgar Guareño, with Blanca Ceballos styling hair.

Our locations included the primary base of Camino Real in Huatulco (an amazing upscale venue for weddings, see beach shots below), Aldea del Bazar (awesome bohemian site for weddings) and Paraíso Escondido in Puerto Escondido – and the gorgeous private home Casa Macaria (beachfront estate available for vacation rental) near Puerto for the boudoir component.

Huatulco is situated on México’s Pacific Coast, very far south en route to Central America. It is a rugged, virgin coastline with dazzling white-sand beach inlets and azure ocean. La Crucecita is the main beach town, I highly recommend Italian-owned Max’s West Park Cafe for fresh-baked croissants and coffee (and Max is awesome company!) Camino Real serves delicious local fare, and there are a number of great restaurants along Zicatela, the main beach strip in Puerto Escondido. Aldea del Bazar also serves a wonderful breakfast at their pool-side open-air restaurant.

This was a huge effort by many – heartfelt thanks to all who made this shoot a success! Contributors are listed below and more details are available in the current issue of Engaged magazine. Enjoy! ~ Besos xx, Laura

Post-Wedding Portraits on the Amalfi Coast, Italy

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful locations for a honeymoon or destination wedding. I met up with Sarah and Ted for portraits in Positano in the morning and Ravello in the evening (at the gorgeous Villa Cimbrone). We wrapped at Palazzo Sasso (now re-christened Palazzo Avino), an almost mythical romantic spot at the very edge of a cliff with an expansive view of the Mediterranean Sea and the glittering Amalfi coastline.

I arrived by taxi from the Naples airport, but you can take a hydrofoil by sea from Naples to Amalfi. There are many famous hot spots in the area – including the hotel Le Sirenuse, where we photographed many of the Positano images. I stayed at Villa Rosa, a beautiful hotel just a very short distance from Le Sirenuse and sharing the same incredible views.

It goes without saying, the food was so delicious – limonata tastes even better when you pair it with prosciutto di parma and a balmy Mediterranean breeze! ~ Baci xx, Laura

Wedding at Raspberry Plain in Leesburg, Virginia

Heather and Jon’s wedding at Raspberry Plain was so beautiful – they held a ceremony of combined faith under a log-and-linen chuppah on a rolling field fringed by pine trees, decorated with earth-toned ribbon streamers and mason jars with candle votives. Heather wore a gown by J. Crew and carried a beautiful bouquet of soft white, grey, and green made by Holly Chapple Flowers. Jon wore a lovely suit in soft grey with a white flower boutonniere.

The indoor atrium-style reception space at Raspberry Plain was beautifully decorated with cascades of white hydrangea, tall white-and-green flower centerpieces (also by Holly), and sage table runners on white linen…with plenty of earth-bound details such as smooth river stones and burlap and wicker balls. The romantic effect of candlelight was even more pronounced against the evening sky visible through the atrium windows, and they had a wonderful band playing for dinner and dancing.

Heather and Jon were a joy to photograph – some of my favorite images are of just the two of them, enjoying each other’s company throughout the day. I hope you enjoy the images! ~ Besos xx, Laura

We got back on Sunday night from our honeymoon in Kauai, and boy has time just flown by! The pictures are wonderful! We, and many of our family members, have just been “ohh’ing and ah’ing” at their artistry and beauty. You have a special talent, and we are so appreciative of not only your photographic work, but of your calm and laid-back manner. Thank you so much! ~ Heather & Jon
