Photographing weddings is definitely something special, but when a fellow photographer asks you to shoot theirs, it brings it to the next level!
Last week I went down to Tulum, Mexico to be part of Don Richer (Don Richer Photography) and Christina Scott’s (now Christina Scott-Richer) destination wedding!
Don and Christina tied the knot on the beaches of the Grand Oasis Tulum and from beginning to end, you could tell these two were meant for each other. It was such a fun, yet emotional day. Being able to capture these moments are extra special.
It was also special to have Ritchie Mayotte (Ritchie Rich) from Big and Rich’s Dj Service there. I’ve been to many destination weddings, but having a local DJ/friend be the MC and drop beats at a location like this brought it to the next level. He had everyone smiling, laughing and dancing, until the night was over. Even the next day I heard people compliment how awesome it was. Something you don’t often hear at these types of weddings.
Even after the wedding, it didn’t end. With my Destination Wedding package I also include a free Trash-the-Dress session. Better called an In-the-Ocean session! It’s great to be able to go off the resort; somewhere different. Somewhere away from the resort with a more ‘local’ backdrop, reflective of the country we were visiting. A great time to explore, and of course, get a little wet in the water.
Before you get to the photos, I have to give a huge CONGRATULATIONS (and thanks) to Don and Christina! By being able to capture their memories, I’ve captured some of my own. Meeting all their friends and family by far outweighed the hot sun, the beaches, the free food and of course the many free drinks (we all enjoyed so much).
Here are just a few of my favourite shots of this amazing couple! Enjoy!
