Shelly & Justin | Cancun Wedding

I absolutely adore being a Charleston wedding photographer because we are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful and popular cities for weddings in this country. I also love to travel and jump on the opportunity to do so as often as I can. Destination weddings are a favorite of mine because I get to combine two of my passions, travel and photography! I have photographed many destination weddings within the US and internationally as well. I have had the honor of photographing weddings in Berlin, Hawaii, St. Lucia, South Africa, and now Cancun, to name a few!

Destination weddings come with their own sets of unique challenges that require a high level of professionalism and ability to commit to the job as photographer you were hired for–it is not the time to get lost in the wonder of the location and behave as if you are on simply on vacation. It is an incredible honor for a photographer to be hired for a destination wedding-especially when the clients happen to be part of your own family!

My first cousin, Shelly gave me the option of being her wedding photographer or a bridesmaid (which I’d totally love to be seeing as I experience most weddings from behind my camera). I decided that the best role I could play in my dear cousin’s wedding was that of her photographer. I was so excited to be able to help document one of the most important days of her life and provide her with images and memories from that day she and her family can cherish forever!

Shelly and Justin met in the Bay area of California and recently relocated to Austin, Texas for Shelly’s job. They are very driven people in their respective careers, and they both inspire and encourage each other in such an admirable way. These two truly bring out the best in each other in all aspects of their lives together. It is so exciting for these two to join together in marriage, and I and 40 guests were lucky to travel to beautiful Cancun, Mexico for their amazing destination wedding! It speaks volumes and is a testament to the character of Shelly and Justin that they even had a few friends who do not live in the United States who joined them in Cancun for their wedding!

The wedding and reception venue was the incredible, all-inclusive resort hotel, Azul Sensatori in Cancun, Mexico. Did I mention that it can be hard as a wedding vendor for a destination wedding to resist the temptation to go into “vacation-mode”? I knew I would have to forgo many of the perks of this irresistible and all-inclusive resort in order to stay focused on my job as Shelly’s wedding photographer. For this reason, during my commute from the airport to the resort and during the check-in process, I allowed myself to enjoy one delicious cocktail before stepping into my official role as photographer for the great majority of my short stay.

The wedding ceremony took place on a stunning rooftop terrace followed by a reception on the gorgeous beach. The weather on their wedding day was perfect, the amazing white sand, bright blue tropical water and sky were all perfectly accented by just the right amount of beautiful white clouds. The backdrop for their wedding day was serene and absolutely stunning to experience and capture with my camera.

The 40 guests in attendance were fun and relaxed, such a joy to photograph, and everyone had simply an amazing time celebrating this wonderful couple. It was an incredible honor to celebrate Shelly and Justin along with their wonderful family and friends who were able to make the trip to Cancun for their unforgettable destination wedding. As a Charleston wedding photographer who happens to have a great love for photography, travel and first and foremost my family, I can’t thank my cousin Shelly enough for the opportunity to celebrate and document her wedding day with my camera in beautiful Cancun, Mexico at the wonderful Azul Sensatori Resort!
