Photographer Jose Villa has an incredible workshop on location in Mexico where novices gather to learn from a great team of photography and design amidst a glorious setting. Imagine spending five days photographing the luxurious destination surrounding Hacienda El Carmen in Jalisco, Mexico.
These images from last years workshop show the beauty and lure of the area as well as the outstanding talent and ethereal sophistication of Jose Villa’s imagery. The village charm, colorful local fruit, lace gown details, green vines, and soft muted hues are representative of Mexico’s appeal in this region. Absolutely beautiful.

This Southwestern garden affair is filled with soft colors, organic details, and natural decor. We love the sensation of the gorgeous pink, warm peach and vibrant tangerine hues. The fragrant colors light up this springtime scenario so beautifully we can almost smell the divine aromas.
Lush deep muted floral swoon within the setting. The warm textured natural tablecloth is perfect with the brick floor and outdoor location. The peonies, hydrangea, roses, and parrot tulips add an exquisite touch to the intimate setting amidst the old trees. We love the pretty pink ruffled seat covers complementing the mint green and gold chairs. The bride’s strapless gown and colored sash flow naturally within the surroundings and the groom’s pale suit is a perfect companion. The scene is ceremonious and absolutely charming.

This is a gorgeous styled shoot featuring an urban setting in New York City with delicious details. We love the Brandy bar and the walls of wine surrounded by the green yellow, lavender, and plum hued florals. The industrial ambiance creates a warm atmosphere with the dark wood and rich hues.
For a couple who want their nuptials in the city, yet want a rustic feel, these are pretty inspirations for merging the urban and rustic appeals. The delicate designs of the wedding cakes are beautiful and work perfectly with the bridal gowns. We love the soft layering and silk fabrics of the gowns as well as the sweet pastel hues. Such a fresh and lovely collaboration!
