This is Dana and Vlad’s Riu Cancun wedding portraits and I enjoy seeing their playfulness and love for each other shine through the photographs.
Riu Palace Resort in Cancun is situated on stretch of white sandy beach on the Caribbean Ocean. It provides a beautiful background of azul blue waters for wedding photographs of this beautiful newlywed couple.
This is what they came her for after all. We had some dark clouds rolling in threatening with the rain and wind. Though most people may see it as a concern, I, your wedding photographer, see it as a fabulous opportunity…
Sun often tends to wash out the colors with its bright lighting. To make things even more interesting the wind picked up slightly giving a great lift to the spectacular cathedral length veil that Dana wore on this special day, creating a romantic timeless style for the photographs. Watch for how I captured the veil in the photographs below.
The sky looks much more interesting with these dramatic looking dark blue clouds in the background and adds depth and character to the photographs. Not to mention, clouds also provide uniform lighting for the couple’s faces and because of this cloud cover you can see the vivid bright colors of the water in the background.
How much better can it get, you may wonder, well, it did get better. When we got to the upper level terrace of the Riu Palace to take photos of bride and groom with their family and friends. The magnificent views spread out behind them with lovely colors of the setting sun.
Love, beauty and romance were all in the air as we photographed into the dusk of the day.
