Luis & Marcela – Engagment in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

I’m always elated when I have the opportunity to provide my videography service in a foreign country. Being avid travelers, combining my love for exploring with my dream job is nothing short of extraordinary.

This time, my journey led me to Mexico, a land of Mariachi music, spicy cuisine, pristine beaches, Mayan pyramids, and an explosion of colors! The vibrant hues that paint the cities of San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato make them perfect settings for an engagement video shoot.

In these captivating locales, Luis chose to propose to Marcela, two Northern Mexico natives utterly enamored with the vibrant culture and traditions of Central Mexico. Their connection was palpable.

Luis and Marcela entrusted me to capture this monumental moment in both photos and video. After collaborating with Luis, we decided that the proposal would be even more enchanting if it took place on Calle Aldama, a street that ranks among the most beautiful in the world and is the epitome of Mexican charm. This picturesque avenue boasts not only the characteristic Mexican colors but also the stunning backdrop of the Parish of San Miguel Arcangel, a church that resembles a majestic wedding cake.

San Miguel de Allende is a place that effortlessly lends itself to creating breathtaking visuals. It’s no surprise that this city is a UNESCO heritage site and also found its place in the list of Pueblos Mágicos, a collection of the most mystical and enchanting locations in Mexico. We explored various corners, utilizing striking yellow and red contrasts, or capturing moments against walls adorned with seasonal flowers. And, of course, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to film them in front of a massive cactus, an iconic symbol of Mexico.

Engagement shoots are increasingly sought after by couples, and I’m genuinely delighted about it. These sessions offer a more relaxed and personalized way to tell a love story before the wedding. Couples have the freedom to choose their settings, clothing, and other elements that reflect their unique personalities and vision. These sessions allow us to build rapport and eradicate any potential camera shyness, ensuring that couples feel entirely at ease on their wedding day.

The video unfolds with a close-up of Marcela with her eyes closed against a soft pink backdrop, symbolizing femininity, while a gentle breeze tousles her hair. To set the stage, there’s a quick montage of iconic Mexican imagery accompanied by the unmistakable soundtrack of Mariachi music. The video goes on to introduce Luis.

The narrative continues with a vivid portrayal of Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende, playing with shadows and light. Two birds take flight as Marcela and Luis initially walk separately through the city streets, each with their gaze turned toward the camera. As their journey progresses, they slowly draw closer, finally walking side by side. Marcela opens her eyes, blurring the lines between dream and reality.

In this video, I’ve shared a love story, a dream turned into reality, in a place that truly embodies the spirit of Mexico. If you enjoyed the video, perhaps you should consider getting married in San Miguel de Allende?
