Cancun Wedding // Raegen & Doug

January 18, 2012

Destination weddings in Cancun, Mexico, can be painted with a stereotypical brush from time to time.

Beers. Sun. Beach. Party. Big hats. Tequila. More party.

You know the drill.

The story doesn’t always need to be told that way though. It doesn’t always have to be all sunshine and roses.

Raegen and Doug struck us as an intense couple. They are fun, for sure, but they also have a seriousness to them that we really liked. This broody feel was what motivated us when we photographed their wedding.

It’s OK to be serious once in a while.

    So I've come to realize that the reason I like your work so much is because it reminds me of Wes Anderson films. This post especially. Great work, you two.
