What a fun weekend! Although I must admit, shooting two weddings and a day after session consecutively was pretty exhausting.

Day 1 – Arrive in Cancun

Day 2 – Isla Mujeres Wedding – Colleen and Hector

We photographed a beautiful wedding at Isla Mujeres – “Island of the Ladies” – nice name! We also hooked up with the island coordinator – Laura – and she was so impressed with our work that she wants us to be the official video/photo people – woot!

Day 3 – Marriott Cancun – Tiffany and Ly

Tiffany and Ly are such lovable people! We photographed their engagement in New York a couple of times and always enjoyed their company.

Below is a same day edit fusion video! We placed it in their iPod and Ly watched it all night. He even brought it around with him and showed it to random guests in their hotel lobby, which cracked us up.

It was SUPER WINDY and we still pulled it off.

Day 4 – Day After Session at Tulum – Tiffany and Ly

Tiffany and Ly wanted to do a day after session at Tulum. Since we were rejected due to permit issues, we were like screw this! We’re still going to get pictures so we rented boats!

Doesn’t this look like a scene from the “Most Interesting Man in the World” except that the dude is Asian? Stay thirsty, my friends.

Isn’t the water gorgeous? Made me want to get a cup and sip from the ocean.

Here is one of many super duper awesome stills! We used a mobile tripod with a custom built frame that held one Pocket Wizard and two 580EX II. We will be hosting workshops on this soon, so stay tuned.

day after session

What was so funny was that a group of Italian tourists saw us taking “professional” pictures you can say and thought Tiffany was a super model. Axiomatically, we are professionals, so no sneering please. Anyway, the tourists all pulled out their cameras and started photographing her and us. We told them not to be shy and to come sit with them. I think this picture adds real character!

Despite the afternoon sun, we still pulled off a perfectly exposed image with two Canon 580EX II flashes. We had one pointing at Tiffany and Ly at 75mm 1/2 power and one for the whole group at 24mm 1/2+0.7 power. Final result = awesomness!

Since the sun was setting and we were all getting burnt, I took one last picture with Tiffany showing off her Fendi sunglasses.

Afterwards, we had tacos at Taco Factory, which was fantastic!

Day 5 – Climbed Coba – Tallest Mayan Ruin in the Yucatan Peninsula

Right before Coba, we decided to explore a cave in a giant cenote (underground river).

Lan has vertigo so I am extremely proud of him for braving his fear.

Once we were on top of the Mayan Ruin, I setup the camera while I callibrated the remote light and ta da!

Overall a great trip! Again, thank you SEO for making these weddings happen.

I’m on a boat!
