puerto vallarta mexico destination wedding photographer | destination wedding | katie & danny part uno…

Sterling and I had the amazing opportunity to photograph my sweet cousin Katie’s wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this summer. The wedding took place at Sol Melia Resort on the beach of Banderas Bay. We spent 7 days at the resort lounging, soaking up the rays and spending time with the fam. The wedding day itself was beautiful and full of excitement the whole day through. Here are some of my favorites from the day. The post is separated into part uno and part dos;)because there is wayyyy too many i loved.  katie and the girls got ready at the resort salonkatie was such a classic, timeless bride. she was so easy to photograph:)my aunt caroline slaving away on the veil. just had to make sure everyone remembers her hard work;)and my sweet cousin ella below. meet danny… katie’s handsome groom. danny and all of his family spoke very little english. so i had an interesting time acting like a total goofball trying to explain how i wanted to pose them. it was so fun! it’s amazing how much just facial expressions can communicate. even though the whole day danny and i couldn’t really talk, i absolutely love him! he is such a cutie and one of the funniest goofball guys I’ve ever met. And to top it off, he is head over heels in love with my cousin:)

and yes, in case you were wondering, katie is fluent in both english and spanish. it was so cool seeing her talk to our family in english and then turn around and translate it all in spanish to danny’s family. it was really neat, because part of the ceremony was in english and part in spanish. and yes, that is me… risking my life and gear for the perfect shot. thankfully i was given full permission to move as i saw needed. cause, as you can see my options were a little limited on this narrow jetti with no side aislesmy sweet aunt caroline and uncle ken. aren’t they adorable?in the shot above… katie and danny signing with fingerprints… mexico is serious when it comes to marriage licenses apparently.

and the kiss… loved both angles…sheer happiness right after the ceremonyclick here or keep scrolling down to see the rest of the day…
