Puerto Vallarta wedding photographers
Puerto Vallarta holds a place near and dear to my heart; when I was a kid, my grandmother moved there and I spent every summer of my childhood exploring the city, fishing off the town pier, waterskiing the blue waters, and venturing with Nanny Omi into the surrounding countryside. When I became a wedding photographer, Puerto Vallarta seemed like a natural place for me to shoot. It’s one of the prettiest areas in the world.
A wedding in Puerto Vallarta is great for adventure lovers who still want to have the luxurious sophistication of 5-star resorts and wonderful restaurants. Not only is there an aweome beach, but it’s fringed by a lush jungle, incredible waterfalls, and gorgeous scenery. These backdrops all make for spectacular wedding pictures. It’s also super easy to get your guests to Puerto Vallarta, thanks to a nearby international airport serviced by many large hubs in the States.

What to do in Puerto Vallarta
What’s nice about Puerto Vallarta is that there are a myriad of activities for you and your wedding guests. For adventure travelers, head into the hills and go cycling or hiking on some of the beautiful jungle trails. Water lovers can go skiing or scuba diving or whale watching. There’s great fishing, awesome horseback riding, or evening sails. There’s also a hoppin music scene and active nightlife. You really can’t go wrong planning a wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Kite surfing, zip lines, jet skiing, etc – the list is endless. When I was a kid, I remember catching a huge El Dorado with my grandma when we went fishing — then we took the boat to Mismaloya and cooked it for lunch with her friends at a restaurant there. This was back in the early 80s, but that area hasn’t changed too much. I love looking at old photos of my childhood here. You can learn more on Wikipedia and Wikitravel.
