The Spanish Wild


The sad truth for many a bride is that the big day just doesn’t live up to their expectations.  This was true for photographer Alicia Rius.  However, in a happy turn of events she was given a second chance to recreate her wedding day.  Alicia gives us insight into her vision:

I am a Spanish photographer living in California.  Last year I got married in the city council of San Francisco, far away from my family and friends in Spain.  The wedding had absolutely nothing to do with what I envisioned for myself, but due to the circumstances I had to have a very modest wedding.

This Christmas, I went to Spain and wanted to have the wedding I never had.  So I organized this styled photo shoot that shows what I dreamed of.  I wanted something romantic and yet wild.  Thus, the white horse in the open field.  I also grew up surrounded by nature and I wanted to have that in my shoot.  That’s why my second location was in the rainforest… where it’s quiet, pure, and intimate.
