Highlight Anna & Alfonso’s Winter Oaxaca City Engagement Photos

It is always a joy to document Oaxaca City engagement photos – especially without the crowds during sunrise. The lovely Anna + Alfonso met me in the heart of Oaxaca City for their engagement session this winter before photographing their wedding a few months later. As always, I kept the process simple and organic, and we just spent a bit of time wandering around letting the magic happen. Cheers to these two and their magnetic, playful energy, which was a real joy to witness and to photograph.

Oaxaca Engagement Photos in Zócalo

In the heart of Oaxaca City, its iconic Cathedral and surrounding colonial buildings is a classic choice for Oaxaca engagement photos that Anna and Alfonso couldn’t pass up.

Oaxaca City is immersed with numerous churches and temples. Each offer unique architectural details and historical charm that add beautiful texture to engagement photos.

The Colorful Alcalá Street in Oaxaca City

If there is anything that you must know about Mexico, it’s that you won’t find boring minimal buildings. Each city in this country is truly enamored with historical beauty and vibrant color. In Oaxaca City, Alcalá Street is known to be a bustling pedestrian street that is lined with shops, cafes, and colorful buildings. This street added a lively and vibrant atmosphere to Anna and Alfonso’s engagement photos.

Pro tip: Because Oaxaca City is a highly sought after tourist destination, the city can become incredibly crowded. So, to avoid this, I always recommend couples to consider a sunrise engagement shoot.

During every shoot, my main goal is to capture not just poses, but the real connection between you two. I want everyone to feel comfortable and at ease, so that your natural affection and fun-loving side can really shine in the photos. So, don’t hold back, be yourselves, and let’s bounce ideas off each other. Trust your gut and let those affectionate vibes tell the real story!
