    Hola! As a photographer located in Mexico I have been enormously blessed in having the opportunity to photograph in the most varied of locations, from beaches and 500 year old churches, to what may be my favorite of all locations.... Click the image to open in full size.

    Many of the amazing haciendas where I have photographed are local to me in the Yucatan Peninsula, and include, 657_emedina_blog_17.jpg

    I have also had the honor of travelling to photograph weddings throughout Mexico in places as incredible as the 605_emedina_blog_31.jpg

    I hope this little post helps anyone who is looking for a historic wedding location south of the border and a little bit off the beaten path. There are many more hacienda photographs on my blog and website which I hope can give a little idea of how special the Haciendas truly are. Saludos and happy wedding planning!

    Elizabeth

      Elizabeth, out of curiosity, how expensive are these weddings? They are amazing. I frequent your blog because I feel like I am in a dream viewing all those weddings. They are amazing! (oops, said that twice!)

        Ever since I saw the first wedding you posted from one of the Haciendas, I've been hooked!!! FI and I really want to get married at one of them when we finally begin planning...

          Hi Amy, Thank you for looking at my blog! I also feel like I am in a dream photographing them! And it is amazing that people do write and tell me that they discovered hacienda weddings through my photographs, and plan to be married in a hacienda. I feel like I have done a little tiny good deed for my adopted country. To answer your question, I do not think that hacienda weddings are relatively expensive weddings, that is not the impression I have at all...and there are small haciendas that can be absolutely inexpensive. Many people seem to just have the event at the hacienda and most of the guests stay offsite, so that gives flexibility I think.. I think the extra expense to a non resort location can be in tranportation, there are fewer flights to non-resort destinations so they can be more expensive. Thank you!

                Elizabeth, curious---- have you done weddings in the Cooper Canyon region? That's another region of Mexico that Frank and I think is absolutely gorgeous!

                  I have not been to the Copper Canyon, but it looks like it would be a FANTASTIC wedding destination!

                      best,
