Cabo San Lucas Wedding Photographer – Stephanie & Will – Part 1
Fresh off the heels of Stephanie & Will’s awesome engagement session Nicole and I found ourselves packing our bags to meet with them again…only this time as their Cabo San Lucas wedding photographer leaving our sweet San Diego home for a few days. We were as excited as ever and ready to kick off our 2014 year by flying down to Cabo for a destination wedding with these two!
Not only do Nicole and I both LOVE destination weddings so much because of being able to travel and photograph rad weddings for rad people in rad new places but because of the different “vibe” that surrounds destination weddings. There is an electric buzz in the air, not just with the couple but the friends and family who have traveled great distances to be there for the wedding. But not just for the day, but often a weekends worth of wedding festivities and happenings.
We love this. Having the chance to build stronger relationships with our couple but also their extended family and friends by documenting their weekend as opposed to only the wedding day. Just as I did driving around with Will & 8 of his best buds on the golf course the day before the wedding, and just as we did capturing their cocktail reception party in the amazing 3 bedroom suite at Villa La Estancia, heck, by the time the wedding came, we already knew everyone 🙂 And on that note…a huge thank you to Diane and the rest of the lovely families who were so welcoming to Nicole and I.
Speaking of the wedding…Stephanie was quite the gorgeous bride and Will cleaned up quite nicely too 😉 But my favorite thing about these two is how genuinely nice they each are. With each other, with their friends etc… They are simply “great” people and it’s no surprise why they have so many dear friends and family that truly cherish their friendships.
The photos….well there is a ton of em, too many awesome ones to post in only 1 blog post so make sure to check back on the blog tomorrow to see part 2 where we will see the 2nd half of their portraits down on the beach at sunset, some Chinese lanterns and a rip roaring Cabo San Lucas party at the reception!
I don’t think any of us would have ended up in Cabo for the wedding if it wasn’t for Will’s dad Paul who fell in love with Cabo many years ago. Unfortunately, Paul wasn’t able to celebrate with us but Will wore a USC pin in his honor right on his heart so he was with him through the day.
