Isa & Adrian Engagement Session, Riviera Maya, Mexico Destination Photographer

When Isa and I first met we hit it off right away.  She is a beautiful person inside and out with a wild heart and bright colorful soul.  A genuine person who is easy going and has a great attitude about everything.  And Adrian simply adores her. 

We had so much fun walking around the grounds of the hotel capturing their love and seeing how they just have fun together.  I loved loved loved Isa's wardrobe! 

The wedding was even more beautiful... which is coming soon! So remember to come back in a couple of days ;).

I was a little skeptical about the layout but I think I'm starting to really like it! I feel like it has a more modern gallery look to it and you can see the whole session rather than having to scroll for years on end, lol.  What do you think? Keep it? 

Anywhoo, if you want photos like this and are getting married at the beach or vacationing in my part of town Puerto Vallarta, click here to schedule your session!

 

Deby & Beto Engagement Session & Beach Ceremony Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Mexico Destination Photographer

These two just amazing me with their fabulousness.  We saw their wedding yesterday, now today we see their Engagement Session taken on the gardens and beach of the Hard Rock Hotel in the Riviera Maya.  

Deby's dress is TO DIE FOR!!! I simply love her dress.  She had it custom made for her and I have to say it was so worth it!

And here is the sweet, sweet beach ceremony they had.  It was brimming with lots of emotions and happiness from both the couple and guests.  The beach ceremony is a symbolic ceremony where the couple gets married on the beach. 

Deby and Beto had both the beach ceremony and in the post before, their religious ceremony.  The hotel or venue where you get married may offer both options or just one.  Be sure to speak with your coordinator.   

Jessica + Joel Engagement Session | Campestre Golf Club Chihuahua, Mexico

I love seeing families grow.  I photographed Sergio and Karla's wedding 3 years ago! Little did I know that I would be photographing Sergio's sister's wedding now.  It was so great to see the family, meet Joel, and photograph another beautiful wedding for this family.

Jessica and Joel are sweet natured and so, so, so in love!  We decided to shoot their engagement session at the Campestre Golf Club in Chihuahua, Mexico.  Such a gorgeous venue!  

Usually during this time, Chihuahua is a hot mess with temperatures in the high 90's, however, I was greeted with rain!  I can't complain, I'm 7 months pregnant and welcome rain over sunny any day!  It was such a fun shoot, we got rained on and then the sun peeked out for a little bit before setting.

Brittany + Gabriel | California Engagement Photography

Hello beautiful and fun couple! Brittany and Gabriel were gifted a mini session because, well, they're awesome and getting married next year.  Duh, that's what great friends do - they gift one of kind engagement sessions! 

They were so fun to be around and even though a little camera shy, they totally rocked it by being themselves.  That's the best part of my job, that I get to capture the essence of a person that makes up their personality... that is magic.

We walked around downtown and found great spots to create images that reflected who they are.  And can we just say how gorgeous Brittany is?!?!

Abril + Daniel P. II Engagement Session | Chihuahua, Mexico

Over the course of the wedding planning process, I like to sit with my clients and really get down to what they are looking for as far as photography.   What styles they like, what look they're going for, and most importantly, what compliments their personalities.  All of this mixed in with with my style of romantic, intimate, and classic photography.  

A lot of the time, this can't be captured with just one session or one location.  And therefore we schedule two days in different locations! I love when my clients choose different locations and looks because it gives me the chance to create something different with each session.  Perhaps one more classy with interesting lighting, and the other with fun accessories full of light.  

This is exactly what we did :).  This is part 2 of Abril and Daniel's engagement session with a more urban feel.  To see part 1 click HERE.  Enjoy!


Cristy + Lalo | Chihuahua Engagement Session

The clouds were gloomy but we ventured into the session any way.  We never thought that with the rain a double rainbow would appear in the backgroud with the sun hitting their faces creating such unique images! We had to work fast to capture the moment but I think we did a pretty good job.  After, it kept raining but Cristy + Lalo didn't even flinch.  They kept going with energy and laughter.  It was a fun session :).

Can't wait for their Cancun wedding in November!!! 


Abril + Daniel | Engagement Session Chihuahua, Mexico

Anais + Mario | Namiquipa Engagement Session

One of the best parts of my job is being able to go to places that hold a special place for my clients.  To show them familiar places in a different light.  We had big gloomy clouds above us and I was able to experiment with a little bit of flash.  Which, if you know me, I have a love-hate relationship with flash.  Engagement sessions allow for this kind of experimentation.  Helps to try new techniques without the pressure of making any mistake you can't take back, like on a wedding day.

Anyway, these two are really in love and I had such a great time photographing them in their hometown, where they met and fell in love!

Just wait until I post their wedding from Mazatlan!  *Soon*
