So we arrived home safely late last night, from Sam & Matt's wedding extravaganza in Cancun, Mexico. It was a picturesque, quiet, amazing boutique resort on the Isla de Mujeres, just off of the coast of Cancun.
Day ONE.. The journey begins. After about 10 hours of traveling... the ferry to the Island was a welcome sight for us!
As we were waiting for the ferry, we managed to take a quick shot of us on the dock...
A gorgeous sunset on the Isle de Mujeres (from the Ferry Dock)
A welcome reception for Sam & Matt at the hotel...
The happy couple! How cute are her shoes!!
Day TWO... WEDDING DAY!
These pillows were a gift for Sam and Matt... how CUTE is that!!
Ah... the gorgeous view of the beach... it's going to be a beautiful day!
Sam getting ready...
After all the mishaps with hair and make-up, we had about 2 minutes for Sam and Matt to meet before the wedding... this was the moment that Matt first saw Sam, it was a beautiful moment, and I just love this image! They are such a beautiful couple!
100 of their closest friends and family!
On the Catamaran after the wedding... they had 2 boats for a sunset cruise around the island!
At the reception. They shared their first dance to Michael Buble's "Save the last Dance for Me"... mid-way Matt threw rose pedals all over!!!!
DAY THREE - A little free time!
We got to take advantage of going to swim with the dolphins!!! What an incredible once in a lifetime experience that was! WOW! We couldn't take cameras while we were actually swimming... but, we had an INCREDIBLE time, and anyone who ever has this opportunity... TAKE IT! It's incredible!!
Here's a funny shot of Brandon while we were hanging out at the resort... enjoy!
Sam and Matt on the beach at Sunset... all we need is a Corona on the table... ;)
DAY FOUR - Trashin the dress!!
We all got up early to take advantage of some incredible light and secluded beaches! Sam did some research a few months back, and found this incredible little boutiquey bar that was GORGEOUS, so we drove down there on a golf cart and got some incredible pics! It was a great time... enjoy... these are a few of my favorites!
Needless to say after shooting some of these pics... I was a bit sandy! LOL.
Thanks again Sam and Matt for having us out to document your BEAUTIFUL wedding! It was an honor to have been a part of it!!
Last Sunday we got to go out and shoot Jenni and John's engagement session!! WE HAD A BLAST... I just love these guys, they make the BEST couple, and are sooooooo much fun! Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the day!
Can't wait for the wedding guys! Only 2 months to go.... YAY!
OK - a lot of our brides have always mentioned that they are up for a TRASH the DRESS session after the wedding, SOOOOO... here is your opportunity to take advantage!!
We are setting up a day in February to go out and have some fun with some past brides (it's even OK if we didn't shoot your wedding to join!), we even have some fellow photographers who are interested in going along, so THIS IS GONNA BE COOL!!
NOTE: This is in the preliminary stages... more details to come! But, if you are interested in taking part! Contact me ASAP! We have room for 3 brides, the session is going to be done at no charge... so HURRY, HURRY!!!
SECOND NOTE: Trash the dress doesn't mean it's ruined... it's just gonna need some serious dry cleaning afterward :)
Can't wait to hear from you!
Oh... and for fun - here are a few from one of my favorite all time shots from a trash the dress session!! Mrs. Kim McDowell... doin her thing! LOVE IT!!
