Azul Fives Wedding Portraits – Justine and Ben

The Azul Five Hotel proved to be the ultimate location to capture unforgettable Mexican destination wedding portraits with Ben and Justine. Everywhere you look, there is beauty to be found — whether it’s the modern architectural details of the hotel, or the awe-inspiring deep blue color of the sea. Browse through Ben and Justine’s portrait photos to see all the beauty for yourself:

Including the bridal party in the portrait photography session gave Justine a chance to capture the fun and silly side of her bridesmaids. These bridal party portraits would make a great gift to the bridesmaids as a “thank you” for all their support throughout the wedding planning process!

The guys, too, were all laughs during the session. Ben’s groomsmen certainly were not afraid to get a little goofy — which made for some extra memorable photos!

I love when a bride wears a veil during her photo session. It allows for stunning photo opportunities allowing me to capture them in elegant breath-taking poses.

The portrait photos taken out on the pier were just perfect — but they almost didn’t happen! We needed permission from the Azul staff to go out on the pier. Luckily, we got permission in time. To avoid a situation like this, I would suggest getting permission from your wedding coordinator ahead of time to get access to the pier or other special locations.

The modern, graphic decor of the Azul Fives Hotel was a great match for the couple’s sleek style. The backdrop made for youthful, interesting portrait photos that I know Justine and Ben will cherish forever.

Taking breathtaking, natural light photos of Justine, Ben, and the entire bridal party was so much fun. We got to explore the most beautiful parts of the hotel grounds together, and I captured plenty of special moments of the couple where you can truly see their love for one another shine through. Justine and Ben capped off an incredible wedding day with an amazing reception — see the photos of all the dancing and swoon-worthy decor details here.

Justine and Ben seemed to be very close with their families, so it was so much fun to watch them boogie down with their families during the reception. Later that night, Justine and her dad surprised the crowd by singing a special song together!

Justine danced the night away — but luckily, she and Ben were able to join me early the next morning for a “Trash the Dress” session. They met me at the public beach right outside the Azul Fives Hotel at 8 am, and I had such an amazing time photographing Justine and Ben as they swam and splashed in the beautiful water. And don’t worry, her gown will be fine — all it needs is a good dry cleaning!
