Nina+Michael | Wedding Photographer Cape Hotel, Cabo San Lucas Mexico
Nina and Michael celebrated their awesome wedding in one of the best place that I have ever been this year, The Cape Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and it took us about 2 -3 days to arrive to this awesome destination, between stops in Barcelona and in Los Angeles… but definitely its worth the hustle and travel to be in this paradise… Awesome destination for wedding photographer Cape Hotel Cabo San Lucas Mexico :) did I say that the food in Los Cabos is a total mind bomb? Ohhhh boy!!!! You got to try it but don’t stay in the touristy area, I recommend that you go to the local town where the police and street vendors eat, you won’t regret it!!!
This destination wedding in Los Cabos was one of the hardest assignment I have ever shot… mainly because I was dying… missing so bad my wife Helen and our baby Emily as they have to stay back in the Canary Islands. But the silver lining of this story is… having real awesome friends in this community makes everything easier, special shout out to our awesome best friends Dallas and Sabrina for accompanying me in this wedding and thank you so much for keeping up with me and for all the tequilas and margaritas along the way… and thank you so much for your madness Corey, you don’t know how much you encouraged me just for being there!
I am not a big fan of self promotion but I need to share this awesome kind words from Nina+Michael for the benefit of all who took time reading this post:
Don (& Helen because you were there in spirit!),
Everyone always says that one of the most important decisions you make in planning your wedding is picking a photographer; finding someone who will uniquely capture your day so that you can relive it long after it is over. While the idea makes sense, I found this hard to believe because as I scanned through countless portfolios of wedding photographers, everything looked the same- just a bunch of pictures. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, I just knew that nothing quite felt like us. When I came across your website, I was struck by how different your work was from everything else I had seen. I loved that you had a way of extracting the emotion out of a moment and displaying it in a way that was raw but beautiful. I felt that I wasn’t just looking at the pictures, but the moment inside them and I knew then, that THIS is what I was looking for.
Having seen your work, I expected to receive beautiful photographs but the ones that I’ve received so far have blown my already high expectations out of the water. The photos are truly amazing and I am SO excited to see more but what is equally important to me, and what inspired me to write this note, is not what is in the photos but rather the joy that you brought to the entire process. I now realize that picking the right photographer is not just about photos but about having someone around you who makes you feel good whether you’re being photographed or not and you did exactly that. Everyone who had the pleasure of interacting with you and your team has shared the same sentiment with me- that they were overwhelmed by your kindness, calming presence and sense of fun.
I will forever be grateful to you for not only capturing our joy, but for being a part of it and we will always cherish the memories you helped us create and that we share together. So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your talent, your vision, but most importantly for your kindness & warmth.
With love & gratitude,
Your friends Nina & Michael
