moments. brief, fleeting, everchanging. they come along, and then they are gone. recently i had the opportunity to travel to cabo san lucas to photograph the wedding of two people who i now consider my friends. i spent six days in mexico with 40 people who travelled from all over the united states to spend the week celebrating the love of erin and paul.
the group was incredible. everyday we would all mosey down to whatever section of the pool we decided to take over for the afternoon. together we danced, sang, did water aerobics, played volleyball, got sunburned, drank too many bahamamamas, played ping-pong (by the way ricky, i want a rematch). it was truly an incredible week and the group was so welcoming to me that i felt like part of the family.
by the time the wedding day arrived i was already a part of the group. i knew mostly everyone by name. i was comfortable enough to poke fun at the guys when they got a bit disorderly or to sweet talk the girls when i needed them to wear their beauty a bit more confidently. and because of that comfort level, i was able to both participate in and capture real, authentic moments throughout the day.
we created space for moments to be experienced, we experienced them together, and it was beautiful.
i enjoyed every minute of the six days i spent with erin, paul, and their family and friends. thank you for being so welcoming to me, allowing me to share this week with you guys and capture these images and many more. love you guys.
here are a few of my favorite moments from erin and paul's wedding.
