Rockin a sneak peak on my blog from my most recent trip to the Mayan Riviera to shoot two weddings. One at the Royal Playa del Carmen with Kerri (an awesome BDW bride, read her BDW review here.)
The second was Sarah and David's wedding at the Hotel Marina el Cid in Puerto Morelos. I'll post an update when I do the full blog post for both of these fun couples.
Below is the full text and photos of my blog post. Enjoy!
Aaaawwww yea! Mexico Time! Itâ€™s November which means Iâ€™ve wrapped up my Oregon weddings (save my last one, Brittany and Sean, that Iâ€™ll blog on Tuesday).
I just got back from my second trip to Mexico already, a trip to Puerto Vallarta for Sanyu + Dekeâ€™s villa wedding at the edge of one of my favorite beaches, Playa Punta Negra. But first, I wanted to throw up a little sneak peak from my first DW trip of the season to the Mayan Riviera.
I flew into Playa del Carmen November third for Kerri and Markâ€™s wedding the next day at the Royal Playa del Carmen. I get really excited about shooting in unfamiliar and new areas, and I usually use every free moment to scout new locations to shoot couples. Which is exactly what I did in the morning before their wedding. We took a break after the ceremony to shoot a bit in some nearby Mexican neighborhoods during the sunset light awesome-goodness time.
Kerri and Mark are an outgoing fun-loving couple that canâ€™t stop giggling with each other and I think their photos definitely reflect that. : )
Although Iâ€™ve shot in Playa del Carmen before and at the Royal, the next day was an entirely new location for me. Early on the fifth I rented a car to drive up to Puerto Morelos for Sarah + Davidâ€™s wedding at the Marina el Cid.
I loved walking around this once quiet fishing village in the early morning, and the one thing that I love love love about the Caribbean is that blue blue ocean! Aaa! It looks sooo good (like below). It just makes for such an awesome color!
Iâ€™ll be totally honest and just say that I was dreading this trip a little bit because of the forecasted weather. Honest to god, the whole week preceding the trip, everyday I would look at the weather app on my droid and it was just thunder in lighting over the Yucatanâ€¦
I can not tell you how excited I was, when on the two days I shot, it did not rain once. In fact, there were breaks of golden light mixed with little puffy clouds most of the time.
Iâ€™m pumped to blog Sarah and Davidâ€™s pre-ceremony photos from our walk around town that started in the main square of Puerto Morelos, and included little fishing docks, brightly painted walls, walks down cobblestone streets and even a giant abandoned in-ground pool I found in one the neighborhoods.
Congratulations to both couples, and thanks for the unique experience I had with you guys making awesome photos!
