Kelly + Tyler’s Riviera Maya wedding was your destination Mexico wedding dreams come true. Secret Akumal had beauty around ever corner and it made for the perfect place for these two high school sweethearts tie the knot.
Surrounded by their closest family and friends, and lots of palm trees, Kelly and Tyler shared their first kiss as husband and wife. And how appropriate to celebrate being newlyweds in Mexico…with a tequila shot! (Don’t forget the lime.) If you know anything about me, tacos and tequila are my love language. How appropriate and on brand to photograph Kelly and Tyler’s Riviera Maya wedding.
Photographing this Mexico destination wedding was more than just a margarita on the beach for me. I grew up with Kelly, as she was one of my best friends in middle school so being able to be such a huge part of her big day, was so special to me.
Cheers to clients who become dear friends & think I’m worth flying to Mexico 🇲🇽 to photograph their wedding!
Kelly + Tyler, your Riviera Maya wedding was an absolute dream and I am so lucky to have been a part of it. Huge thank you to you and all your guests for welcoming me with open arms and making me feel a part of your family. (And for feeding me tequila shots and champagne by the pool 🥂) ¡Salud!
