A few weeks ago we blogged Samantha + Shaun’s destination wedding at the stunning Grand Velas Riviera Maya (if you haven’t checked it out, be sure to!). We had always planned on doing a sunrise shoot the morning after the wedding, and after it poured on their wedding day and was forecasted to pour again the next morning, we settled for the next evening for their Just Married Session! One of the many perks of going to Mexico with Sam + Shaun was the flexibility we had to move shoots around as needed! It also allowed us to capture other moments throughout the weekend that were not necessarily planned out or scheduled.
During their Just Married Session on the beach it was so great to watch these two interact and see the incredible love and joy they have when it’s just the two of them. From the very beginning of their wedding planning they knew they wanted an intimate beach wedding, surrounded by their closest friends and family, and during this session it was great to watch them just take it all in! They had just had the wedding weekend of their dreams and now they get to start the next adventure together, as husband and wife. Over the course of the 5 days we spent in Mexico we were able to get to know Samantha + Shaun even more and definitely left the trip feeling like we had gained lots of new friends!! Here are some of our favorites from our last days in Mexico..
The day after their “Just Married Session”, we thought it would be really fun to do some photos of Samantha + Shaun swimming in the pool and hanging out on the beach and not all dressed up! Instead they wore bathing suits and their wedding gift to each other — Wifey and Hubby tshirts! We are so grateful for clients who say yes to just about anything :)
And then of course we wrapped up the trip with some shots of the gorgeous resort! Hope to see you again soon
