I can’t even believe I have waited this long to post images from the amazing adventure I shared with Amy and Harvey in Tulum Mexico. To say this wedding and post-wedding shoot was EPIC is an understatement! Their wedding was gorgeous, simple and intimate. You can view images from their actual ceremony day in a previous blog posting here:)
What I have yet to share are the days following their nuptials, which include a 6am sunrise shoot, a full afternoon shoot in the warm sunlight and 2 underwater sessions! It is a dream to work with clients like Amy and Harvey, willing to do and try anything and to allow the time to get creative and work with the best possible light, something that rarely occurs on an actual wedding day.
The sunrise shoot was absolutely stunning! Just being there in the moment witnessing the colors of the sky as the sun rose above the horizon line was pure magic. I think we were all in awe of the beauty of the moment, and the photographs speak of this quiet time we shared. We then hit the beach to continue to watch the sunrise over the ocean and the golden light of the early dawn was a photographer’s dream to photograph….
On a separate day we chose to photograph around the bohemian inspired Tulum beach area. Far from the crowds of the bigger resorts we were able to find some colorful nooks and crannies, including and abandoned bar, a beautiful pathway lined with weathered wood, and of course a cliff over looking the ocean. Amy and Harvey made every location that much more beautiful with their effortless love for one another and ease in front of the camera. Days like this really make me appreciate how lucky I am to do what I do.
And what would a trash the dress session in Mexico be without some underwater photographs?! Anyone who has watched Verve’s blog over the past few years knows that underwater photography is something that I have experimented with for years. Mexico has the most amazing cenotes, which are a natural phenomenon of crystal clear subterranean water bodies, which can make for some unique photographs. These shoots are so much fun, and you never know what results you will end up with. Amy and Harvey were such troopers, diving down over and over again. We definitely shared had a lot of laughs and swallowed water creating these moments but it was all worth it in the end.
Happy anniversary you two! This blog was a long time coming, and has some of my favorite memories and images ever! There is nothing more special then witnessing a couple experience the same love and friendship that I have in my own marriage. It truly was a blessing and an adventure to document and share this momentous time with you. Thanks for an amazing and “EPIC” time in Tulum.
