description

The image shows the bride Feliciana Loya Heredia in a beautiful wedding dress. The picture was taken in 1949 by the Casasola Photograph Studio. The Studio was a popular institution in El Paso where many El Pasoans went to take their pictures, in particular for special occasions like weddings or graduations. Alfonso Casasola, a member of a famous family of Mexican photographers, came to El Paso in the 1920s after several years in the Mexican consular service. He established the Casasola Studio (also known by its Spanish name, Estudio Casasola) at 511 S. El Paso Street and was active in many civic organizations. He died on February 17, 1948 at the age of 59, but his wife, Emma Flores Casasola, continued the studio for many years.
