Aloha! Sometimes as a photographer, you're lucky to stumble across serendipitous opportunities and pure wedding magic. Kara and I grew up together in Lubbock and I was completely flattered when she asked me to be her photographer. When she mentioned her and Vincent's wedding would take place in Maui, I could't wait to document their special day in such an incredible desitnation. Between this beautiful couple and the Hawaiian paradise, I was in heaven everywhere I turned.
Destination weddings are my new jam. I'm so incredibly grateful that Dori and Britton gave my husband Ryan (aka my favorite destination second shooter) and I the opportunity to travel to the Excellence Riviera Maya Cancun to document their beautiful wedding weekend. It was one of the most fun "work vacations" I've had yet, and I could certainly get used to the destination wedding scene. Dori and Britton are two peas in a pod and kept us on the edge of our seats the entire weekend. Britton and Ryan were best friends through middle school back in Midland so I had some idea of what we were getting into by having a front row seat to their wedding. Britton & Dori's last name is Butts and to give you a brief example of their hysterical sense of humor, you should know that they left their reception dancing to "I Like Big Butts"! They're two incredible people and it's always so refreshing to work with a couple who loves to have such fun on their big day. Thank you both for the opportunity of a lifetime! Hopefully this will be the kickstart to many more destination weddings to come.... I'm thinking Europe next.... any takers?!
And of course a big thanks to my favorite second shooter/hubby on this one. You made me real proud, love you!
