The setting suns golden light reflected over the bay of Spanish Banks.

Happy 1 week Anniversary Erica & Calen!!
Erica & Calen are just on their way home from their honeymoon and I wanted to welcome them home with a little blog post of their wedding day...
Was a treat it was to accompany Erica and Calen to Puerto Morales Mexico to photograph their wedding. I met Erica & Calen a year ago and we instantly became friends. I just love their vibe, they are so honestly in love with each other that it makes you feel good to be around them. Over the week at the Now Jade Resort we got to know their family and friends as well and what a fun group they were, the laughter was going at all times.
The theme of the peacock feathers was the perfect colour pallet to go with the tropical setting of Now Jade's palm trees and aqua ocean.
Erica was such a lovely luminous beauty. I had a few moments to capture her having a quiet moment before the ceremony.
Meanwhile the men were having a relaxing guys time and I caught up with them on the main grounds just before the ceremony. Maddox the three year old was not quite as cooperative at all moments, but a "who has the biggest muscle "contest with Uncle Calen got him smiling!
Time to get married and give away his little girl
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
There's alot more to post, the reception, and most fun of all...
the day after session in the Grand Ceynote near Tulum.
Keep watching it's coming soon!!!

I've know Dayna for quite a few years now. It all began with her & Jason's wedding, a young couple so in love. They were beginning their lives together and have allowed me to follow them through the evolution of their marriage and beginnings of their family. Thomas was born just a little over three years ago and I've photographed him through his first three years. It's been easy to fall in love with this little monkey. He's got such a fun-loving, charming little spirit. All of the little girls will be trailing after Thomas! Now there's a new little one on the horizon and of course I had to celebrate the new baby as well! Dayna & Thomas came to my studio and we had a little fun together, unfortunately Daddy had to work, but we'll get him sometime this year I'm sure :)
I truly believe Dayna is one of the most beautiful pregnant Mommies I've seen!
Dayna went into labour within hours of our session! Thank goodness she came to see me that day!
Celebrating the last day of just Mommy and Thomas.
One week later a very excited three year old came back to show my his little brother!
Cutest little boy ever!! I just love his sparkly eyes and happy little grin.

Thoughts brewing this concept began almost a year ago. The timing was just right we brought this all together to at last bring our vision to life. It was a cold winters day. Leaves had left the trees, ripe red berries had taken their place filling the thorny branches. The sound of wolves howling in the distance of the hills as darkness descended around us.Yes, that's right, wolves!! They brought the spooky Grimm inspired shoot just the right spirit. Wish they'd come a little closer so we could have had them in the images.
