ANDREA + ANDY | Cancun, Mexico
I shot three days of events with Andrea and Andy in Cacun, starting with a booze cruise on a party boat called the Dancer. We floated in the ocean surrounded by deckhands dressed in superhero costumes, and once enough tequila flowed, the dancing commenced. I like shooting destination weddings because I almost always photograph something like this beforehand, and these events tend to put all the guests at ease when they have a camera pointed at them. On the wedding day itself, things are that much more natural.
During their post-ceremony couples shoot, we found ourselves on the roof of an exposed breezeway trying to get images with the Cancun skyline in the background. Within a few minutes, a security guard found us, but Andrea diffused the situation with a beautiful smile and a request: “It’s my wedding — can I get a picture with you?” He couldn’t refuse. A righteous party followed, and the next day we headed off to some cenotes for a cool trash the dress session.
