Why a Professional Photographer is Worth the Investment for your Cabo Destination Wedding?

Why a Professional Photographer is Worth the Investment for your Cabo Destination Wedding?

Is wedding photography the most important thing when it comes to your Cabo wedding? Nope, not at all, however when it comes to planning your Cabo Destination Wedding it should be up there on the priority list of things to look at, budget for and book.

Wedding photography is important because it will capture your day, it will capture your memories, it will tell a story, and not just any story, it will tell a beautiful story of your special day, a day you will never forget. A story that you can show friends and family, your kids, and grandchildren, something you will have and can treasure for ever.

You see your flowers will wilt, your cake will quickly be eaten, your invites will be binned after the day, your dress shall be worn once, those shoes shall go back into their box, this isn’t me trying to be glum and miserable, this is about perspective, this is about helping you focus your budget on things that you may not put importance on, such as wedding photography.

Riu Palace Beach wedding

This gorgeous wedding took place at the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas. Amanda and Graeme´s wedding day was just perfect in every way. Beautiful ceremony on the beach just a few steps from the Sea of Cortez. Officiated for Minister Marco. The wedding day was incredible, packed with emotional moments, so much laughter and amazing people. The entire wedding group was very nice, friendly and fun. They enjoyed the location, the perfect weather, all the little details of attention Amanda and Graeme prepared for them, and they all danced late into the night!

After dinner, fire dancers and speeches, it was time to get the party started. There was no way this was not going to be an awesome party with this amazing group of friends and family.

Humongous congratulations to Amanda and Graeme and their families. Thanks for having me as your Cabo wedding photographer!!

Would you like to know how did they meet?

Groom: We met at the concert of a local Vancouver artist on New Years Eve after each being

reluctantly dragged out by our friends to the same venue. We met early in the evening when I

was approached by Amanda who introduced herself... safe to say we have been inseparable

ever since.

Would you like to know about the proposal?

Groom: The proposal happened moments before being picked up on our way to the airport

headed to Thailand. I knew I wanted to propose before we left but time got away from us and I

was left with

minutes to surprise her with my question. With time running out I yelled "Mouse" and kneeled

down to pick up the ring where I hid it earlier, Amanda freaked out and ran for the door so I

could throw it outside, I told her to grab me a container to put it in, she ran into the kitchen and

Tupperware spilled from the drawers, when she turned the corner she saw me on a knee and


I hate you to (which I replied) Well I love you...Will you Marry Me?

Wedding hair tips for Los Cabos Beach Wedding

Los Cabos Beach Wedding - Wedding hair tips

I learned really quickly photographing weddings here in Los Cabos Mexico is nearly every evening there is a beautiful breeze that comes off the ocean. This breeze most of the times coming from the Pacific cools down the air and allows you and your guests to enjoy your wedding ceremony. However, if you wear your hair down, it will also blow your hair into your face and ruin your photographs if your hair is not pinned up and/or under control.

This is especially important when you consider how you will stand at your Los Cabos beach wedding ceremony. Nearly all wedding ceremonies here in Los Cabos area have the guests facing you with the sea as the background. The wind nearly always comes from the East. As a result, sometimes, you are standing in the perfect position for the wind to blow your hair into you face for the entire ceremony.

And if you are one of those brides that does not like wearing her hair up because you find your face looks thinner and better when your hair is down, not all is lost. There are a lot of styles you can choose where the hair is back or comes down one side that will still give you the volume you need to obtain that same look. All it means is you have to be creative in choosing a style. And you might want to do a test with your  profesional stylist before coming down, just to make sure you are going to be happy on your wedding day.

If you need some inspiration, please visit my Blog for beach weddings here in Los Cabos, Mexico. Also, you might want to check out a few of my favourite styles in our portfolio section. And one bride that I think really chose the perfect hair for her face, dress and day was Cami of Cami and Justin´s wedding, even after she jumped to the pool her hair was perfect.

Often when I talk about hair, I get asked if it is ok to wear a veil? In my opinion, I love veils and how they flow in the wind. They tend to look great blowing in the wind. However, it is important that you pin your veil into your hair as I have seen a veil fly out of a brides hair and land on a second floor private Villa as she was walking with her bridesmaids.


I hope you have found this little post helpful and you are a little more prepared for your Los Cabos wedding. Please, remember to talk to your bridesmaids about this as well because it’s equally challenging to have their hair blowing in the wind during the photo session.
