Capturing the Spirit of México, in Hawke’s Bay

México always has a strong place in my heart. It’s where I first started shooting professionally, and over the three years of living there, I immersed myself into the colour and noise that created some of the world’s greatest artists.

So when Kim had a vision, based on the hypnotic Frida Kahlo, I jumped at the chance to capture a little bit of Mexico in Hawke’s Bay. Kim looked more like the Salma Hayek version of Frida (minus the famous mono-brow), so the focus was in bringing out the glamour, colour and elegance of the look.

With a Napier day as hot as México (well into the 30s), Kim and Keith still managed to look cool, as we targeted succulents, blue walls and and the rustic-themed OMG bakery in Hastings where the ceremony took place. Viva el amor…
