I first met Courtney and Paul last November when I shot their engagement session. After we finished shooting, they asked me if I was interested in shooting their wedding in Cancun. I thought about it for two or three nano seconds before saying; “absolutely!”
Fast forward a year, and my wife and I were on a plane to Mexico to join Courtney, Paul and their friends and family at the wonderful Dreams Resort in Cancun. I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun shooting a wedding as I did with this lovely couple.
After the wedding, Courtney wanted to shoot a “trash the dress” session. So two days later, we rose just before sunrise, and with somewhat bleary eyes, spent the morning taking photos on the beach and in the water. I really enjoyed shooting this session as it was relaxed and the light was beautiful.
But the best part about this wedding was that Courtney and Paul went out of their way to make my wife and I feel like a part of their circle of friends. We may have met as strangers a year ago but we left Mexico as friends.
Paul and his buddies watching the State-Carolina game before the wedding. Paul was “Mr. Happy” all day, even though his beloved Tarheels lost the game.
Oh, and it’s rather difficult to get the game on TV but thanks to the internet, they didn’t miss a thing.
