Wedding photos at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

It really was a dream come true for me to have the opportunity to capture a destination wedding in Mexico and it was all because of wonderful couple Andrea and Steve. I heard from them around a year ago via email, enquiring about capturing their wedding at Cabo Del Sol Golf and Beach Resort. Even though we only live around half an hour’s drive from one another in Southern California, they trusted me enough based on the work they saw online, which was a real honor for me.

They took care of all my flights and lodging and I flew out to Cabo San Lucas the day before to meet them in person. I actually overheard a group of people chatting in the lobby of my hotel when I arrived and thought it might be Andrea, and when I went over to enquire, it turned out I was right! From the very first moments, the couple were so welcoming towards me and treated me like a guest at what was going to be a very intimate wedding with just those closest to them.

Getting ready photos at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

Because I was the only photographer for this wedding at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort, I jumped back and forth between the guys and girls as they were getting ready. I captured all the warm candid moments as Andrea made her final preparations alongside her bridesmaids, younger sister and very cute son Maxim, and a creative shot as she wrote a note to her husband-to-be. I also got some shots as Steve shared in this special moment with his groomsmen and son, including a cute one of Maxim helping to fix his bow tie.

Pre-ceremony portraits at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

Andrea and Steve had decided on a first look session, made extra special because it also included Maxim. I photographed Andrea as she walked towards these two special men in her life and their reactions as they shared in this unforgettable moment together.

I really loved the architectural setting of Cabo Del Sol, with Spanish-inspired archways, columns and warm pastel tones. We used the opportunity for a portrait session of the couple in this atmospheric setting, as well as a kiss watched on by Maxim.

Ceremony photos at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

It was then time for the ceremony itself which was one of the most breathtaking settings I’ve had the privilege to photograph. It was held on the beachfront lawns overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with gorgeous sunset lighting to work with.

Andrea’s mom escorted her down the aisle to where Steve and Maxim were waiting, with her little sister sprinkling rose petals in front of them. It was quite an emotional ceremony, with a few family members no longer with them, and I captured both the couple and Andrea’s bridesmaids as they fought back tears. But it was with undeniable joy that they kissed after being pronounced “husband and wife” and made their recessional walk down the aisle to be congratulated by family and friends.

Post-ceremony portraits at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

I then headed down onto the sands of Cabo San Lucas with the couple for a sunset portrait session and captured them both radiating love in this special moment. The pink tinge to Andrea’s dress and the grey tone of Steve’s suit just worked in perfectly with the beachside setting and the luminous blue of the Pacific Ocean behind.

Reception photos at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

Andrea and Steve’s reception was more of an intimate dinner, held right on the beach outside Cabo Del Sol. There were some emotional speeches and toasts, as well as a playful cake cutting ceremony, then everyone got up to dance beneath the stars, equipped with glow-in-the-dark glasses!

I captured a funny photo of Steve (accidentally) catching Andrea’s bouquet during the bouquet toss, as well as a special moment with their son Maxim as they watched a fireworks show ignite the sky above.

Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort:

It’s hard to put into words how honored I was to be selected as the photographer for this destination wedding at Cabo Del Sol Golf And Beach Resort and I want to thank Andrea and Steve for welcoming me so warmly.

I also want to give a shout out to the team at Signature Mexico – Sarai Flores and Martha – who were the incredible wedding planners for this event and went out of their way in assisting me to get the photographs I wanted. But my time with Andrea and Steve wasn’t over yet, with a “trash the dress” portrait session scheduled the following day!
