I first met Amanda when she stood up as a bridesmaid for a good friend of hers for another client. Her and Adrian loved my images and my approach to photographing a wedding. We met a few months after and our personalities clicked – which is a big deal for a destination wedding – and we discussed all the details her and her wedding planner were making for a November wedding in Tulum, Mexico.
The first day after I arrived, we met with their wedding planner to scout out locations and to understand the timing of the day and figure out how much time we would need at each location.
The wedding day finally came with zero chance of precipitation so I knew we would be able to utilize every spot we scouted.
Amanda and Adrian both agreed to have their first reveal by themselves to keep the intimacy. The location couldn’t been better.
Throughout the day we stopped at a few different locations heading towards Tulum which was about an hour from our Barcelo Resort Coming into the twilight hour and finally arriving to Mia Restaurant and Beach Resort. The timing of the ceremony was perfect. Family images were shot upon the sunset soaked beach and everything perfect….till the ginormous rain cloud came right as dinner was going to be served outside. Thankfully Nemo Sierra, their wedding planner had a plan B and we moved into the restaurant for dinner.
By the time dinner was over the rain had stopped and the dancing commenced on the beach. The day was absolutely beautiful even with the hour and a half of rain.
Here are some of my favourites from such an amazing wedding of two of most down to earth people you could met.
