Hello All, Ian here… A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to travel to the Riviera Maya, Mexico to shoot Dave and Tarah’s beautiful wedding. I can’t begin to tell you how sweet of a couple they are. Dave and Tarah and their friends and family truly welcomed me and really treated me like family! I was in Mexico for a week covering everything they did during the week.
Monday night Dave and Tarah had a welcome party for all the guests followed by dinner at one of the many restaurants at the resort. On Tuesday we loaded up on a bus and took an hour or so drive to the Mayan Ruins of Tulum. Despite the blistering heat it was absolutely beautiful and we all had a blast. On the way back to the resort we made a stop in the city of Playa del Carmen for some retail therapy and much needed food! It was very amusing watching Tarah barter with the locals for deals.
Wednesday was Wedding Day! 2 hours before the wedding it was pouring down rain and there was even talk about moving the wedding inside… Luckily for everyone the weather cleared and they had stunning weather for their special day! The ceremony took place in a garden overlooking the ocean, followed by cocktail hour and reception on a terrace by the beach…can you get any better than that?!
On Thursday, I probably had the most fun shooting that I have ever had. We traveled an hour south to an underground cenote to do a Trash The Dress Session.
Dave and Tarah, thank you so much for welcoming me into your family! You guys are so much more than clients, I consider you all friends.
