Wedding at Matorca, Bucerías Nayarit in México

Martoca Beach Garden is a beautiful secluded beach and garden, surrounded by amazing large palm trees. It is a great venue for a non-resort private Puerto Vallarta beach wedding and a fantastic scenery for a photographer like me.

A lot of souvenirs were created that day: from Emanuel’s tears to his father’s ones, or the strong hugs that Cara shared with her new family, a lot of feelings were expressed. It is said that men should not cry, but how nice it is to see a man mourn for love in his statement. Seeing that every word transcends someone is not an easy thing to witness, and taking photos of those tears made me feel like I wanted to part aside and respect the emotion in a so intimate moment. But as a photographer, I had to shut down my emotions, let them get to me and have them get me closer to the core of the person I had to photograph.

The climate conditions were almost perfect as it usually is in November in Banderas Bay and we had the chance to have a cloudless evening that allowed me to play with the reflections on the pool during sunset. Another detail that will let me a special memory is Cara’s twin. It is not common to have a wedding with twins, and I must confess it is a lot of fun. It was a real pleasure to work for Cara & Emmanuel, an exceptional and very loving couple. Our best wishes at the start of their life together!

A Tulum, Mexico Beach Wedding at Hacienda Chekul

This past year I’ve had the pleasure of traveling internationally more for weddings, and Mexico was at the top of the list!  What’s to love about Mexico … for starters,  it’s fairly close to California (which is my home base) and easy to get to, relatively speaking, the weather is warm, the people are friendly, it’s affordable, the beaches are beautiful, and the living is easy!

If you’re unsure of where to explore, I’d recommend exploring rural Cabo San Lucas, Punta Mita area, Sayulita, and the Caribbean side of Mexico, south of Cancun, Tulum.

Can you imagine how wonderful it is to have several DAYS to enjoy your closest family and friends on an adventure together, instead of a few hours!?   Sounds fabulous!  Your family and friends will thank you.  Here are a few incredible resorts to consider:  Four Seasons Punta MitaSt Regis Punta MitaImanta Resort near Sayulita, Hacienda Chekul Tulum, Mexico

Rochelle and Damian desired this experience, so they planned a several day excursion with their closest family and friends to explore an area that had become close their hearts.  They had booked stunning Hacienda Chekul in the biosphere of Tulum; secluded, jungle-like, luxurious and intimate.  Indeed, it was a grand adventure and a FUN way to start their marriage.

The adventures abounded for the soon to newly wed and their guests … from ancient ruins, jungle safaris, exotic margaritas to snorkeling in the seamless, warm Caribbean Ocean, this wedding didn’t disappoint.  It’s warm there most of the year; it didn’t matter that they tied the knot in January.  Rochelle and Damion took a few trips down, and probably the best decision they made was to hire an event coordinator to help them put it all together.  Their day was 100% them; they had a beautiful, intimate beach ceremony, delicious cuisine, live music, completely authentic townsmen playing Gypsy Kings type music and were surrounded with love by 70 close family and friends from all over the world.

Whether you’re considering eloping, or inviting family and friends, Mexico is an awesome place to start your union and we are totally down to meet you there and capture your once in a lifetime moments!

Doreen & Gilbert’s Playa Del Carmen, Mexico Wedding

Hi everyone.  This is my first post on this blog.  I am the newest member of Best of Wedding Photography.  I am excited and very honored to be a part of this group.

This wedding was shot in August in Playa Del Carmen.  We did the photography over 2 days.  On the second day we rented a car and drove around looking for places to shoot.  That’s when I stumbled upon a beautiful mansion that was being built.  Using my broken Spanish, I was able to get permission to shoot inside.  It was a great shoot and one of the images scored at WPPI.
