If the Mexico destination weddings and couples I photograph were not so amazing and the energy of the wedding day so addictive, my dream would be to photograph for magazines like T+L (Travel and Leisure) or Conde Nast Traveller. Long before I started photographing weddings I would look at the images in those magazines and analyze how they were made. So when I get to photograph weddings that have that kind of cool travel vibe I could not be happier. Shaelyn and Tony were married at a private hacienda very close to Merida, Yucatan. This hacienda is quite unique in that it has kind of a funky, bohemian style and a lot of personality. The whole group seemed very relaxed and ready to enjoy the Yucatecan flavor of the wedding. All in all…a fun way to kick off 2009. Gracias, Shaelyn y Tony!
Hmm…a birdcage veil and a birdcage…couldn’t resist this one.
The ceremony was held on the front lawn, Lauren captured this photograph from the roof of the hacienda.
When in Yucatan you can’t miss trying panuchos, especially from fresh handmade tortillas.
When the bride and groom kissed they were surrounded for an instant by a sudden flash of fireflies! How cool is that!
The little dolls were made by a friend…so cute I had to borrow them for a photograph of the wedding rings.
The reception was held by the pool.
