Jenna & Carlos | Hacienda La Escoba, Guadalajara, Mexico Wedding Day | Images by © http://MoscaStudio.com #moscastudio #weddingstyle #bodacarlosandjenna #haciendalaescoba

An absolutely stunning wedding weekend in Guadalajara, Mexico! Jenna & Carlos celebrated with 300 guests over that weekend with an excursion to Tlaquepaque during the day, engagement party at Los Tres Potrillos restaurant that evening, and full wedding day at the historic Hacienda La Escoba from until 5am the following morning. It was absolutely unforgettable because of it’s beauty, and because of the incredible people I got to meet! Not just the beautiful bride and groom, but the vendors involves in the celebration and the local Guadalajara photographers I had the pleasure of meeting in person after years of social media connections. The world is increasingly smaller and as such, people have more opportunities to travel and meet new friends across all borders. I travelled to Jenna & Carlos’ destination wedding in Mexico last summer 2015 and it was one of the best experiences of my carrier! Being fluent in Spanish helped facilitate all communication with vendors and the fabulous second shooter I hired to help me (Paulina! Gracias bella! Y gracias a Alejandro tanbien!). I can’t wait to go back! <3

4.12.16: Watch KPTV's TV interview with Alice's MoscaStudio about wedding photography insights and tips!

Today was a debut for us here at MoscaStudio Television! Even after 13 years of being in business, we get shaky and excited about unexpected things in the world of wedding photography, and we’re grateful for that! It means that we do still care and that we are still deeply involved in the craft. We’re honored to have been asked to be interviewed by KPTV (Portland’s Fox News Channel 12) as experts on wedding photography. I was interviewed at our studio for about 45 minutes, and then our good friend James (cinematographer for KPTV), edited the set to a quick 4 minute story. He did an amazing job filling what I said to the images I submitted for “show and tell”! I am so grateful and so honored! Thanks for looking, friends! <3

Super special thanks to:

  • James and team at KPTV Portland’s Fox News Channel 12
  • Sara and Matthew at Bluemercury in The Pearl for my Make Up and Hair
  • ALL of our couples for being my spokesmodels for the story (See the images below!)
  • And Josh, for being my ultimate cheerleader and best friend <3

moscastudio, destination wedding photography, tuscany wedding photographs of xiao and mirco, castello di leonina wedding by moscastudio.com

Even if I was born in Rome and raised Italian, I still become awestruck when I see the beauty of the Italian countryside. Mirco and Xiao flew me to Tuscany last May, for their STUNNING destination wedding weekend, and I am in love. Not only was the scenery perfect, the food and people and wine were so, too. It is an experience I will never forget and one I am happy to show off over and over again, so anyone who will ask for it… Better yet! If anyone you know is considering planning a destination wedding in Italy, put them in touch with me! I have great contacts now that I am happy to pass along, especially so if I get to fly out there again, too ;) Let’s get back to the blog post at hand! Here is Mirco & Xiao’s perfect wedding weekend celebration in Tuscany, Italy <3

Their picture perfect, iconic hilltop Tuscan castle made for a stunning backdrop to their love story, while their closest friends and family made it truly theirs.

This beautiful MoscaStudio Tuscany Italy wedding was featured in Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine and we could not be more honored for the recognition!

April & Ryan | 10.9.2015 Maui Hawaii | Images by © http://www.MoscaStudio.com #moscastudio #hawaiiwedding #weddingstyle

A beautiful bride. A handsome groom. A gorgeous island. What more can we say? :) April & Ryan’s destination elopement to Maui, Hawaii was just perfect. Blue skies, warm waters, and colorful sunsets. We’re always excited for every wedding we get to photograph, especially if there is some adventure involved! Part of the adventure we love, is to travel to destinations to document a couple’s love. We had the opportunity to do so on Oahu in March, and again in Maui in October. We are so lucky! And we thank all of our couples for trusting us with our art. Here is a sneak peek of April and Ryan’s Secret Beach, Maui elopement day, October 9th 2015. Thanks for looking friends! Read the rest of this entry …

An incredibly colorful, cultural, varied, and elegant wedding day is in the books. What a beautiful fall setting for such a multi cultural wedding celebration! We began their photographic story that Friday, for their portrait session at Washington Park, followed by their rehearsal party at The Cleaners, with their Hindu/Persian/Western 14 hour wedding day that Saturday at the Portland Art Museum, followed by a spur of the moment day-after portrait session in and around Portland’s South Park Blocks and Art Museum on Sunday, to make sure we had plenty of images of the two of them in their beautiful western garbs. It was a very fulfilling weekend of festivities and conversations with so many people of different backgrounds! We were in awe of the  whole weekend and must loudly thank Katy and her team with Bridal Bliss for coordinating and planning such a flawless event. We could not do events of this caliber justice, if it weren’t for the top notch team of vendors we luckily get to work with every weekend. So thank you everyone! Here is but a sampling of their long wedding weekend. More information including a full list of all of the vendors, coming right up!
