Scott and I just returned from Mexico from shooting a International destination wedding at Riviera Mia, Mexico. We had a fabulous time photographing Sean and Jackie’s wedding. Their family and friends treated us like family. Everything was amazing. Even the trip to Coco Bongo with everyone! So much energy and excitement. I can’t wait until I can post some images to share with everyone. We did an after session with Sean and Jackie the morning they were leaving. We got up early to meet them at the beach before sunrise and captured the most beautiful sunrise.
We wanted to take this time to wish everyone; our clients, family and friends, and awesome photographer friends and vendors a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year! Hoping everyone has a safe and joyous holiday vacation and have lots of quality time to spend it with your loved ones.
