Cancun Wedding Photographer // Alejandra & Pepe

September 5, 2011

A few of months ago I flew down to Xcaret, just outside Cancun in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico, to shoot a wedding with one of the most talented wedding photographers in the world. Senor Fer Juaristi.

A couple of days later I returned to Vancouver, having shot a wedding with not only one of the most talented wedding photographers in the world, but also one of the most genuinely nice people I’ve ever met.

These are some of my favourite shots from Alejandra and Pepe’s day in the Mexican jungle.


Alejandra and Pepe’s jungle wedding was featured in The Lane.

    this is unreal! so so so many incredible shots. the guy with that hat I want on my wall. Fer is second shooting with me in November and I CANNOT wait. Hope I remember to actually shoot rather than just watch him the whole time.
