You read that correct; this week I am in the beautiful Playa del Carmen, Mexico for Thanksgiving, miles and miles away from home and my family. When the opportunity to shoot this wedding first presented itself I thought “Wait, I want to spend the holidays with my family back home” and then quickly realized “holidays” is plural and missing Thanksgiving was nothing compared to the awesome photos I was going to get. It’s been 2 days here at Playacar Palace and that was definitely the right decision.
Whenever I do book such weddings I always include a day-before session with the bride and groom at the location they are getting married at to have the opportunity to shoot some engagement-type photos with the beautiful scenery. Here is a sneak peek from today’s session, and you can definitely look for a post from the bride’s bridal session we did back in Dallas tomorrow night after the couple ties the not. SPOILER ALERT: The photos are sexy.
