Mexico Fine Art Film Wedding Photography


As this season winds to a close I celebrated by fifth year photographing weddings. It has been an incredible five years full of discovery, excitement, hard work and bliss! I know that I am doing the right thing when I still wake up excited to go to work and leave a shoot with more energy than I started with. Simply put, photography excites me! I celebrated my 5th year anniversary by giving something back to myself- a photography workshop… A Jose Villa Mexico Workshop! But it was much more than simply photography- I walked away re-inspired and motivated to push my art to the next level. I am taking a step back to strengthen my roots by shooting all film( Yes..actual FILM!)  and giving myself space to reach and grow.

I am incredibly grateful for all of the speakers and sponsors who gave so generously of time, talent and experience:
