THAD + AREN HOME by Ricardo Quintana

Suggested song "Asilo"  (Asylum) by Jorge Drexler Feat Mon Laferte.

"Just a few hours and then when it dawns I'll put a coffee maker. And I'll have taken the cloud to another sky of clouds. I prefer a whole night in sail, to have the soul in suspense. Give me one night of asylum."

THAD + AREN WEDDING - MEXICO by Ricardo Quintana

Enjoy this dream destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. There are so many things I could write about this magical weekend. I'll leave it up to you  though, that through this set you can revive and, maybe imagine a bit about Thad and Aren's wedding story instead.

I have nothing but gratitude to this lovely couple.

Suggested Song "Love me Tender" - Elvis.

CATHARINE + RYAN by Ricardo Quintana

This couple killed it! We started on time and ready to get to Albion Basin in little cottonwood canyon.  After a couple of minutes their car overheated so we had to hitchhike to my car. Then,  my car decided to just turned off, seriously, it just happened, my car was in the shop the day before and it was all good.  We had to wait for a couple of minutes and even a small prayer I turn on my carand drove it at 5 mph. We finally got to an awesome location, not what we had planned but, everything worked out beautifully and I think it was mainly for the amazing attitude Ryan and Cat had during the whole shoot, so upbeat, positive, and full of energy!

 

Suggested song "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys.

THAD + AREN by Ricardo Quintana

Thaddeus Maximus and Aren Muse one looks like a Roman Emperor and the other is like a Greek Hero.  This amazing couple was a dream to shoot with, plus they went with all my crazy ideas.  We spent a whole afternoon starting in Salt Lake downtown and, later we landed on the fabulous Little Sahara.

The day, the outfits, the locations and the emotions. It all came together and I'm so happy to have met this loving couple and get to know their beautiful story.

For some reason I just think of this song while I was taking pics in little Sahara, is in spanish ha! So I'm not sure if they are going to understand it but it is my song suggested for this shoot.

Suggested song "Tuyo" by Rodrigo Amarante.

UPDATE:  I had the honor to have this shoot published on Junebug Wedding
