It was the second time in just a few months that I had traveled to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico to photograph a wedding (same hotel!), and I couldn’t have been more delighted to work with Natasha + Steve – two amazingly easy, good-natured and fun-loving people from Brooklyn. The wedding was held at Paradisus Playa Del Carmen La Esmerelda. The weather was perfect all weekend – at a constant 80 degrees, it was a nice respite from the rather meh conditions in NYC at the time.
Huge thanks to Rick Fasanella and Jonathan Joyce of Majestic Creative for being such a great video team to work with throughout the weekend, Alex Edge & Company (DJ) / Irina Gleyzer (MC) for providing the perfect soundtrack and entertainment for the weekend, Styling Trio – Riviera Maya, for making Natasha and her bridesmaids look stunning on the wedding day (not that it was necessary to begin with), all the staff at Paradisus for going above and beyond to ensure that I was always taken care of, and most importantly – Natasha + Steve, for being so kind and wonderful to work with. Congrats to you both!
