10.5.10 | Ming + Jeremy find love at the Fairmont Mayakoba

I recently had the honor to spend a couple of hours at the Fairmont Mayakoba in the golden sunlight of a late afternoon in October…. Here are a few of my favorites from a magical Engagement shoot with Ming and Jeremy. These were taken just a few days before their wedding.  What a cool moment in a couple’s life together, so much anticipation and excitement between them, with such big things to come!!!

Review From Tracy + Steven

Well, I just got my slide show last week and I actually cried when I saw the unbelievable memories they captured!  First, they captured details I didn’t even realize were there and the emotions you can see on not just mine and my husband’s faces….but on everyone’s faces.  It’s just priceless.  They are absolutely stunning.

We were fortunate enough to have both Melissa and Jonathon on our special day.  They were incredible and we were sad when they had to leave because we were having so much fun with them….we wanted them to stay as our guests!!  My husband is not the greatest picture-taker.  If anyone has ever seen “Friends” and the episode where Chandler is trying to take engagement pictures…well that’s Cole.  The camera goes up and he forgets how to smile.  I don’t know what Melissa and Jonathan did before the ceremony, but you would have thought he was a professional model.  They worked some kind of magic and got him to relax.  (I never said thank you for that, by the way!!)

The pictures really do speak for themselves and I could never thank La Luna enough!

Tidal Wave Sky

I was recently shooting a wedding near Tulum at the Grand Palladium when the most beautiful cloud formation revealed itself.  I shot this when I was waiting with the groomsmen for the bride to make her appearance to walk down the isle.   Totally cool moment, up up in the sky.   The shapes in the clouds sorta look like a rolling wave of water….if you can use your imagination :)

Hope you enjoy!!! Jonathan
