Tropical Cozumel, Mexico Wedding | Destination Wedding Photography

Round Lens Photography Phoenix Scottsdale AZ Photographer_0174

Eric and Kristina Zard were married in beautiful Cozumel, Mexico this summer. Not only did I get to be their wedding day photographer but I also got to spend the week with them leading up to the wedding as I booked a few extra personal days to enjoy this tropical paradise.

 

There are so many moments from this wedding week that I will never forget. From the bride breaking her nose three days before the wedding from a competitive match of sand volleyball, to the endless entertainment that an all-inclusive bar provides (while both participating and spectating), meeting wonderful new people (and pretty funny at that), the beautiful scenery in every direction and admiring the sweet love of this couple about to get married.

 

On the day of the wedding, I woke up extra early and prepared myself for the hot day ahead of me (it was like 95 degrees with 100% humidity…and while I come from Phoenix heat, I am not accustom to humidity). I packed extra clothes to change into in case I needed them…but little did I know that I was going to need like twenty changes of clothes. Within minutes of photographing the first shots of the wedding dress out on the beach, I wasn’t just dripping in sweat…I was fully soaked in sweat like I had just fallen into the ocean. Photographing in that level of heat and humidity was a whole new ball game for me…but lucky for me, I was in semi-sweat absorbing athletic wear and not a full men’s suit or floor length beaded wedding gown! Eric and Kristina did not complain once…they were simply too happy to finally be in this day that that heat was such a minor detail not even worth worrying about.

 

As I walked Kristina over to her first look to see Eric for the first time before the ceremony, she grabbed my hand and squeezed it as she started to cry. She told me she couldn’t believe that today was the day she was marrying her best friend. She told me from the moment she first saw him that she knew immediately he was the man of her dreams and they have been best friends ever since. She couldn’t believe she was standing there in a wedding dress about to marry this same man. This is how every marriage should begin.

 

A HUGE congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Zard! It was an absolute honor to witness the love you have for one another and to be selected to spend a week with you all in paradise.
