Luisa & Felix's Wedding at The Liberty Hotel & Thomas Aquinas Parish / by Tatiana Blanco

On July 14th, 2017 Luisa and Felix got married at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish and The Liberty Hotel in Boston, Ma.

Luisa's mother Gloria found my services on line and after answering few questions she decided to book a meeting so I could present myself and my work. Her daughter who lives in Washington was going to visit for few days to finalize the wedding preparations, so the family invited me to have lunch in this cute colombian place in East Boston. I must say that the moment I sat down I appreciated their passion and sense of enjoying life. I knew the wedding was going to be fun and full of energy. Luisa and her mother are very passionated and their energy overtakes all their conversation.

Gloria hired me on the spot and I was full of excitement knowing that I was going to be part of such an incredible event with families coming from all over the world. 

On the wedding day, I arrived to the Liberty Hotel an hour before my starting time. I always arrive early so I can provide a calm energy to the bride and bridal party. I love to take my time photographing details, so that way I can take my time and not rush. The moment from arriving to the hotel to the end of the wedding went as a flash. I could not express how quick everything went. I usually try to stop for few minutes and ask the couple to really be present and enjoy the moment. 

I am grateful to Luisa and Felix since they were accommodating to all my ideas I had to photograph in the hotel. The liberty hotel is an imaginative transformation of the storied Charles Street Jail, a national historic landmark and architectural gem built in 1851. I wanted to photograph the couple at as many places possible. 

I love documenting people's special day. Luisa and Felix's wedding was yet another great experience where I pushed myself as a photographer and where I met amazing people and possible future clients.Thank you Gloria and Luisa for trusting me with your special day.
