December, crazy December… time has been flying by! Its hard to believe that 2010 is almost a wrap, this was such a great year with some of the most amazing couples ever. I am really excited about sharing the final 2010 weddings here on the blog! Ashley and Mark were married in a colorful beach ceremony at the Dreams Riviera Cancun resort in the Mayan Riviera. Lindsey and I were blessed to be this sweet couple’s wedding photographers on that sunny day in paradise.
Mark and Ashley honored Mark’s mother’s memory throughout the day, one way they did this was by including her engagement ring in the photographs.
This is a photograph of a detail from Ashley’s dress, so intricate and beautiful!
Some last minute bridal preparations…
and Ashley and her group of girls, so bright and pretty in crisp white, navy blue and yellow!
Ashley was so beautiful and relaxed, the ultimate low maintenance bride, she even stayed calm and cheerful when the photographers temporarily misplaced her groom!

The next two are Lindsey´s…
You may kiss the bride!
Something I get asked about quite a bit is if it will hurt the photos if the bridal party has an “uneven” number of bridesmaids vs. groomsmen. I love to photograph a bridal party like Ashey and Mark’s that is a little asymmetrical, I think it lets me play a little more with the compostion of the wedding party photos and adds a little extra zing. What do you think?

And time for the reception, held on the ocean front deck.

I am so happy to be able to share Tricia and Antonio’s wedding photos. Due to a busy shooting season and weddings in different parts of Mexico (shoots in 5 states in 21 days anyone?) there are so many images to share! Travel time cuts into editing time though, there’s just no way around it, so while turnaround has not been late it has been a bit slower than I like. I think I have been just as eager as any of my brides for the photographs from the recent weddings to be ready to see the light of day, maybe even more! I absolutely can’t wait to share them all on this blog, but then patience has never been my principal virtue!
I really appreciate having brides like Tricia, who from day one was a just a pleasure to work with. The day she and Antonio tied the knot in paradise at Dreams, Cancun was bright and cheerful, the ceremony was lovely in the gazebo and the fiesta on the beach….Wow, what a party! Tricia and Antonio, Lindsey and I loved spending your day with the two of you and your group and wish you all the best.
Tricia has incredible eyes! I loved the close up, it doesn’t show up in this blog sized version, but in the full sized image you can see the blue Cancun water reflected in them.
A few details…the traditional Mexican lazo was included in the ceremony.
Portraits with Antonio and Tricia prior to the ceremony.
Tricia entered the gazebo with her mother, the image on the left was captured by Lindsey from the tower.
Y uno mas!
Trica and her bridesmaids, what a fun group!
Time to party on the beach!
