I am Mexico based destination wedding photographer Elizabeth Medina and I appreciate your visit! This destination wedding photography blog is my way of sharing a peek at the amazing weddings my studio teammates Lauren and Lindsey and I photograph for the most wonderful couples imaginable at locations throughout Mexico. I hope you will stop back often to this visual journal to experience a little of the magic that is a destination wedding in Mexico. For a look at our destination wedding portfolio, comments from past clients and studio information please check out the website! (please don’t miss the main site's showcase and featured weddings section with some of my all time favorite images). And one hint…the blog is categorized by location and type of weddings, so if you are interested in seeing weddings at a particular venue or getting ideas about beach weddings, hacienda weddings or trash the dress sessions please check out the archives section! If you are planning a wedding and would like information about photography for your day please don't hesitate to email, we look forward to hearing from you! Best wishes! Elizabeth

**update** Wedding Day photos below!
Delayed gratification… Let’s just say I am a bit challenged in this department. Back in the darkroom days one of my most pressing reasons for learning to process my own film was the fact that I could not stand to wait for the negatives to come back to see what was on the rolls of film. Somehow the anticipation and that first peek at the gems hiding on the film as it dripped dry was the very best part of photography.
Things are a little bit different now, instead of 36 shots on a roll of film (and just 12 on medium format rolls how crazy is that!) we have the opportunity to shoot hundreds (OK, thousands!) of digital images. I still can’t help but think of the digital images captured by the camera as my starting point or “negative” rather than the final image and I do my very best to make sure each image reaches its full potential in the editing process. I truly appreciate and admire the patience of our clients in the weeks prior to the “big reveal” of the fully edited set of images and nothing pleases me more than to hear that it was worth the wait!
In the case of Nathan and Maria’s wedding at the Moon Palace in Cancun the editing process took a tad longer than usual, possibly because they are such a nice couple I just didn’t want to let them go! First up, a sneak peek of a few images from the day-after trash the dress session at Cancun’s Moon Palace Resort to be followed very soon by the wedding day images. Nathan and Maria, thank you for the pleasure of photographing the two of you! We hope to see you again on one beautiful peninsula or another! All images (c) 2012 Lauren and Elizabeth Medina.
