When Danah and Matthew first contacted us about capturing their Mexico destination wedding we were more than excited to be a part of their journey. We love travelling and photographing so pairing the two is always a dream come true for us. When we met with Danah and Matthew to discuss their wedding that would take place at the lovely Now Sapphire, Riviera Cancun we immediately knew they were the perfect clients for AGP. It’s not easy taking someone on a destination wedding trip so getting to know our clients is always important to create the perfect connection. Before we knew it we were boarding a plane with the happy couple and their wedding party ready to document their amazing tropical wedding adventure.
During our week long stay we spent most of the time with the bride and groom and their wedding guests. Partaking in resort activities and utilizing our action cameras for some cool pool and bottle cam videos were a great addition to their final slide show from AGP. Before the actual wedding day we had the pleasure of photographing their bachelor and bachelorette parties which ended in a fun night with #nocameras at Coco Bongo, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. (Only because no professional cameras are allowed 🙂 )
The wedding day started, the sun was shining, the resort was immaculate, it was the perfect day. The ladies met at the resort’s World-Class Spa while the groomsmen hung out in one of the resort rooms. Danah and her bridesmaids relaxed while having their services done so I was able to capture some lovely candid images of their experience. Once the pampering was all done we headed back to Danah’s suite where the girls reminisce their long friendships and prepared for their best friends wedding day.
Jim relaxed with the guys while they hung out and told jokes and stories until it was time to get dressed. The guys made for some hilarious photos in the morning incorporating their sense of humour. Jim didn’t mind, he went along with it 🙂
The ceremony location was nestled on the beach right next to the reception area. After the ceremony everyone gathered on the beach for family photos and a group photo then it was off to start the bride, groom and bridal party wedding portraits part of the day, our favorite! 🙂 We had a chance to photograph at a few locations around the resort, all of which were totally awesome.
We then headed back to the reception which took place on the patio next to the beach ceremony. The reception was delightfully decorated and added a great touch to the evening events. After a delicious meal and some meaningful speeches we were into the main event, it was PARTY TIME! hahaha. These guys did not disappoint, they partied hard and danced the night away. We had so much fun we stuck around to grab some cool candid and party action shots. We even added some shutter drag to get creative.
We also took Dayna and Matthew out for a trash the dress session and it was stunning. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out at the link below 🙂
We can’t say enough great things about this whole experience. From capturing Danah and Matthew’s engagement, to hitching a plane ride to Mexico, documenting their big day and capturing their trash the dress session we felt like we were one of their own. The photos we were able to take of them and their day were just picture perfect. Thanks again guys for being such AMAZING clients and trusting AGP to capture a lifetime of moments from your wedding day.
