The day after Natasha and Dave’s wedding at Dreams Tulum Resort, we went to the nearby town of Playa Del Carmen to do their Trash the dress session. We took a few photos in the sea towards the end of the shoot but I wanted to focus on the photos we took out of the water for most of this post as it was really fun to do an urban setting for a change. I was really happy that Dave and Natasha were into going to Playa Del Carmen! It was really fun meandering down 5th Avenue and scouting out spots for photos as we went. It felt like a treasure hunt and the gold was cool walls and backdrops. : )
Check out Natasha and Dave’s wedding photos here as well!
We passed this cute place called Lunata Hotel and I saw all the bright colours and had to go in and take some photos!
The day after their wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace in Mayan Riviera, Mexico, Angela and Angus came out with me again for their Rock the Frock Session (AKA Trash the dress… but as you can see, all it got was a little wet). We had a really fun time (besides a small sting ray coming a little too close to Angela’s head when she was lying in the water! Eeep! She acted like a champ though!). We got such great light for this shoot- I was pumped!
Danielle from Stage Right Etc and I decided it would be fun to get another shoot out of the awesome DIY dress that she put together. So we set off for a road trip from Kelowna, BC down south. It rained the whole day but didn’t let that stop us. On a whim I pulled Danielle into one of my favorite second hand book shops to get out of the rain and it turned out to be an awesome backdrop! And of course we had to work the rain and mud into our shoot so we found a very large area full of grey mud and Danielle started running around jumping in huge puddles, rolling in the mud, while I tried to take photos while not slipping or sinking too far down in the mud, all the while holding an umbrella with one hand and shooting with the othe. “Why did I not bring an assistant to this shoot,” went through my head many times. haha. We also found a great field of purple flowers to take photos in as well as a gutted empty building that I’ve been wanting to shoot at for a couple years but never got around to driving down south to it. Overall- a really fun day trip scavenger hunt for good photos! Thanks for the fun day and countless laughs Danielle. ; D
