The Arch of Santa Catalina is one of the main points of reference in Antigua Guatemala, where every couple says “I want a photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala”.

For that reason, in this blog I will share some great photography ideas in the Antigua Guatemala arch that you and your partner can take.

 

History of the arch of Antigua Guatemala

Considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the iconic Santa Catalina Arch in Antigua Guatemala was originally built as a walkway for the nuns from the Catalinas cloister to move to the annex that was at the other end of the street.

The building has been intervened due to damage caused by earthquakes and the passage of time and it is the journey of damages and repairs that it has undergone, which have made this emblematic monument admired by many generations of Guatemalans and foreigners.

Due to its architectural structure, great beauty and history, it is an emblematic point where many visitors want to take pictures, and clearly this includes beautiful couples about to get married who decide to have their portraits in front of the arch.

8 photograph ideas in the arch of Antigua Guatemala

For that reason, now I want to share with you 8 fabulous ideas so that you and your partner can take a photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala that is spectacular.

 

1. Holding hands

Holding hands is a classic pose when wanting to photograph a couple, and clearly should be on this list.

Some great ideas of photograph in the Antigua Guatemala Arch include:

  • Both holding hands walking towards the arch with their backs to the camera.
  • Both holding hands walking towards the camera with the bow behind them.
  • Both posing under the arch holding hands.

 

2. Carrying the bride

Another excellent idea of photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala is of the groom carrying the bride. This can be both a posed photo where both look at each other while they are charging, as well as it can look completely spontaneous where the photographer captures the spontaneous moment in which the charge arises, capturing the laughs and genuine expressions of the couple.

 

3. Slant kiss

Some ideas can be:

  • Embraced with the bride turning her back to the camera.
  • The groom hugged the bride from behind and both looked towards the camera.
  • The groom hugged the bride from behind and both looked at each other.

 

5. Blind man bent over by the bride

A great idea of photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala is to position the bride behind the groom with the arch decorating her background, where she covers the groom’s eyes just before he sees her, symbolizing the tradition that the groom should not see the bride before the ceremony.

These photos look so heartfelt and moving that projecting them against a background as impressive as the Santa Catalina Arch makes it a work of art and creates truly unique wedding photos.

 

6. Kiss on the forehead

Last but not least, a photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala that cannot be missed is the kiss on the forehead to show that affection that as a couple they have and want to show to the world.

To achieve this photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala, the groom is asked to hug her bride and kiss her on the forehead. This looks very sweet and helps to show connection, romance, and tell the story of your love.

A photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala that is so natural is when the bride rests her head on the groom’s shoulder.

For this photograph in the arch of Antigua Guatemala, as well as the previous ones, you have to be very attentive and choose the right light for this type of outdoor photos.

Hello! I’m Jorge Jarquin …

And I am a professional photographer! I could say that I love watching. The way I photograph is in a very intimate, personal and very authentic way. I am in the constant search to maintain the essence of the feelings and beauty of the wedding day in each image. Each wedding is different, unique and that is why they have a different magic that I love to capture.

For me, wedding photography means creating memories through images that are meaningful to you, beyond just being pretty. It’s what you feel when you see the photos ten years from now and that your skin will turn up again when you see that kiss at the ceremony.
