The Now Sapphire Resort in Cancun was the perfect backdrop for a stylish couple Marilyn and Andrew’s portrait session. Ideal sunny weather and a range of portrait location options — like the resort’s gardens, arched doorways, bridges, and of course the beautiful beach — gave Marilyn and Andrew lots of options to choose from.
No matter where I photographed the couple, though, one thing always shined through: Marilyn and Andrew’s love and respect for one another, and their excitement over starting this new journey together. Take a peek at some of this stunning couple’s Now Sapphire Cancun wedding portraits below:
Palm trees, thatched-roof huts, and an abundance of sunshine add a tropical feel to the couple’s intimate photos — this amazing location is why you opt for a destination wedding!
Interesting architectural details, like this red-brick archway, uniquely frame the couple and add some visual interest to the portrait. The Now Sapphire Resort had plenty of nooks and crannies that were perfect for this style of photography.
The way Andrew looks to his bride is so adorable and full of love; I couldn’t resist capturing that in a portrait photo.
Marilyn looked gorgeous in her siren wedding dress (it looks like Andrew agrees!), and her lovely rose bouquet was a chic and elegant match.
Portraits on the beach are some of my favorite moments to photograph. The wild, endless sky, sea, and sand accentuate how wildly in love this couple is.
Talk about passion! In this photo, it looks like Marilyn and Andrew are the only two people on the beach, and they only have eyes for each other.
As the sun starts to set, the water turns a gorgeous, deep blue, providing the picture-perfect backdrop for the couple’s last few portrait photographs on the beach. I love how the deep blue color is reflected in Marilyn’s beautiful crystal belt.
Even when the sun went down, things were still heating up during this portrait session! Andrew and Marilyn had practically the whole resort to themselves, so we took advantage of that with more photos around the resort in Now Sapphire’s romantic, moody lighting.
Now Sapphire Resort in Cancun has so many different settings to enjoy, we didn’t want to miss any spot! The couple opted for an eight-hour wedding celebration, which meant we had plenty of time to capture all of the locations during the portrait session.
There’s still more photos of Marilyn and Andrew’s Cancun wedding! Check out their reception party photos to see how they danced the night away and celebrated with their families.
