Monica and Milton!

You may remember the beautiful 25th anniversary party in Mexico I had the honor to shoot back in April. Carlos and Kena have been married happily for 25 years, and just a few weeks ago their daughter Monica got engaged :D I knew I was going to be in Mexico for the missions trip, so I jumped at the chance to do an engagement shoot with her and her fiance!

**Edit** Check Monica's older sisters blog, Ana Rebeca Photography, to see some awesome shots she grabbed!

There is a bit of a dangerous war in Mexico right now, and because of that I was not allowed to leave the orphanage we were staying at. Monica and Milton happily met me there and we had so, so much fun running around!

If I could take the light from that hour and bring it home, I would. It was simply unreal. Plus, these two little love-birds were a piece of cake to shoot!

Oh Mexico. Thank you for being so beautiful. Can you give Maryland a quick lesson?

I love, love, love, love colors.

Annnd here is the slideshow!

Oh! This a fun little tidbit from Memory Lane: two years ago when I was on the missions trip, a group of us built an over-hang outside the childrens room.

I think it makes an excellent backdrop for pictures :D Pretty much every single piece of wood you see was measured by me. And it hasn't collapsed yet! Yay!

Congratulations Monica and Milton! I am so excited for you and all that the future holds!
