The Couple: Nancy and Marcos
The Wedding: 1.7.12 – Crowne Plaza Querétaro, Querétaro, México
Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Nancy and Marcos: Classy, Traditional, Intimate.
Junebug: What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day?
Nancy: My inspiration came from my favorite flowers, roses. I have loved roses since I was a little girl and always dreamed of having them in my wedding. My dress and the color of my wedding, soft pink, were my inspiration.
Junebug: Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding?
Nancy and Marcos: Our first dance, because at that moment nothing else in the world mattered. It was like we were the only two people in the world, everything disappeared.
Our photographer, Hiram Trillo, was another highlight. We have been fans of his work for a very long time and always wanted him to capture our day. He made us feel like movie stars and real models. We knew we had nothing to worry about when it came to capturing our wedding day.
Junebug: What specifically drew you to Hiram Trillo and his imagery?
Nancy: My husband, Marcos Valdés is a photographer as well and both he and I love classic films, so Hirams use of light was a huge plus. But beyond that, we loved the way he treated us, the way he talked to us and how he just makes the day and shoots evolve so naturally. You can tell that he puts his heart into every click. It was an amazing experience!
The Photographer: Hiram Trillo
Junebug: What was the most fun part of this wedding for you to photograph?
Hiram Trillo: As with all of my weddings they treat me like part of the family. This wedding had a ton of wedding photographers as guests, some I knew and some I met.
Junebug: How did the locations available to you affect the type of images you shot and how you shot them?
Hiram Trillo: The locations were just beautiful, from their ceremony in a 300 year old church to their reception at the Crowne Plaza overlooking the city and then their day after session in a small town outside of the city with the biggest trees I had ever seen. Each location had it’s own challenges but each was an amazing experience.
Junebug: How did you approach this particular wedding and what did you most want to capture during shooting?
Hiram Trillo: I love my job and one of the things that I love about it is that every wedding is different. It doesn’t matter if they have all the same vendors, the couple is different and they have their own story to tell. That’s how I approach each one. I love it when other wedding photographers contact me to capture their wedding. It is such a humbling feeling that they trust you for such an amazing day. Marcos is a wedding photographer and his wife Nancy is the studio manager, so I was honored when they thought of me as their wedding photographer. I had been in Queretaro a couple of time before and love the culture and history of the city. After speaking with them and knowing all of the personal details they were putting into it I know that approach would be very intimate. Like with all of my clients, I try to get to know them as much as I can so on the wedding day, I am more of a friend shooting rather than a vendor. In getting to know them, they let me know all of the little details that makes their wedding unique and in turn dictates my approach at capturing their wedding. My style is a reflection of each and everyone of couples and their imagery is a reflection of them. That way they can open their album in twenty years and go back to that day. I like to tell them that I shoot with the next generation in mind.
