I was honoured to capture Jorge and Naz's engagement at Hacienda Sarria. He had arranged the shoot as a belated birthday gift and organized for their friends and family to be there after he popped the big question. Needless to say Naz was surprised... and she said yes.
When I filmed Lisa & Perry's wedding in Mexico I was left with a hangover. Not (only) from the relentless shots we did that night, but from the feeling that I would not get to spend another week with these personable and wonderful humans again. I made a promise to myself that I would keep in touch. I'm glad I did. One calendar year later I was shooting a wedding at the same resort Azul FIves. I sent a text to Lisa to thank her for the review she left on the Azul-Brides Facebook page. She texted back with exciting news. They were going back for their anniversary! Needless to say, we spent a few days around the pool-bar... and we were able to sneak in a photoshoot to commemorate their paper anniversary.
When Lindsay and Taylor asked me to film their Mexico wedding I was immediately filled with equals parts fear and excitement. Two of my favourite photographers trusted me to capture their day. I would spend the next two years testing different techniques and refining my approach to wedding videography in preparation for their date. Also, I was asked to be a groomsman, so I did that too. Needless to say, I had one of the most fun days of my career as a creative person.
Capturing the wedding of two people I love and respect, Is there anything better? I submit that there is not.
