Happy Friday! Working a little overtime here to finally update the blog. I have been really excited to share the photographs from Melanie and David’s beautiful Jewish wedding at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This fast paced November wedding was one of the most enjoyable weddings I can remember with lots of action and totally fun people! The Banyan Tree Mayakoba is gorgeous… Melanie and David’s wedding chuppah was set up on a rooftop terrace and the reception’s surprise location was at MK Blue, an amazing relaxed beachside venue. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was when couple, serenaded by an energetic mariachi band, led their guests from the cocktail venue down a candle lit, tree lined wooden path past the beautiful reception area all the way to the dance floor where the mariachi switched over into Hava Nagila and the Hora broke out… truly an unforgettable party! Event coordination for this breathtaking Banyan Tree wedding was by Solen Bodas.
Lindsey and I took a few getting ready and bridal photos then first look and off to catch some beautiful light:

We had a few minutes before the guests arrived for some available evening photos of the bride and groom, here are a few of many favorites:

What a fantastic day! With its beautiful architecture and grounds the Fairmont Mayakoba is hands down one of our favorite Playa del Carmen wedding photography locations. Corey and Jillayne were marriedon the golf course this Playa del Carmen wedding venue on a bright day in May. I love seeing the beautiful day and the sunny disposition of this very happy bride and groom captured in the wedding photographs. The clock seems to flow in very unusual and mysterious ways when a wedding is in process and we sometimes feel that the biggest luxury we encounter at a wedding is time during the day to create relaxed and memorable photographs. Little by little I have come to appreciate as one of the most important skills an experienced wedding photographer can possess the ability to wrestle that ticking clock into submission and make every minute count! Jillayne and Corey’s wedding stands out as one in which a relaxed schedule (and couple) allowed for a great variety of images and lighting conditions, not to mention that starting the day somewhat early allowed for photographs not only of bride and groom candidly with their respective teams but also alone together before the ceremony (first look photographs = priceless!). Now if we could just figure out how to manage time to have enough days on the calendar to both shoot and edit our summer weddings!
