I remember the day I got an email from Ryan asking if I would consider shooting his and Lindsey’s wedding in Guatemala. I squealed and jumped out of my chair. I then composed myself and sent a professional email back and our conversation was started. Fast forward to this past April where I had one of the best experiences I’ve had as a photographer. Ryan and Lindsey were a dream to work with   – they made us feel welcomed and part of their family right from the get go. I’ll gush more about them later (I’m breaking this wedding into a few posts!).

Guatemala is where they met. When they returned together a few years later, Ryan proposed. They love this country and have such good memories here, that it only made sense for them to also hold their wedding here.  They planned a special trip to the Chichi market for all of the wedding guests so we could see a bit more of the country. What a perfect spot, full of culture and colour, for a mini engagement shoot.

This is just the start! Up next, the rehearsal dinner (complete with Salsa lessons!)

The weather this past week has been miserable – cloudy, rainy and COLD. However, all week the forecast has been calling for sunny skies and warm temperatures for tonight. It was hard to believe – even this morning we woke to a torrential downpour. I was discussing with S and A the possibility of rescheduling but luckily we didn’t have to! Miraculously, the forecast was correct and we had a beautiful, sunny night for our engagement shoot!

Shooting in the sun makes me happy and Merrickville has so many beautiful nooks to shoot in. S and A were laid back and fun (A even had some posing ideas ;) ). We had a lot of laughs and a great discussion about their upcoming wedding. You can see how much this couple love each other and enjoy being together. The expressions in these photos are genuine! I can’t wait for the wedding – I know it is going to be a blast (and the food will be amazing!).

Thank you S and A for the fun shoot! I’m so happy that it wasn’t as painful as you were expecting :)  Enjoy your sneak peek – I’ll be in touch with your gallery soon!
