April & Joe live in Maryland, but dreamed of having a beach destination wedding. Something simple to celebrate their love with family and close friends. When April contacted us several months ago, we were delighted to create a photography package for a destination wedding. After several emails and a few phone calls, we smoothed out the details and booked our tickets! The first night we got to Mexico, we were SO excited to meet April and Joe for the very first time. They could not have been any sweeter or more in love! They were truly a blessing to be around and we were so excited to document their love!
The next day our heads popped off our pillows. We were REALLY in Cancun to shoot a wedding. SO FUN! The wedding started at 11:00am and the salty air was already really warm. Poor Micah was shooting details on the beach for about 30 minutes before the wedding started and by the time it was over, she was dripping with sweat! Although our bodies had a hard time adjusting to the humidity, nothing could have gone better.
April & Joe, thank you so much for letting us spend your wedding weekend with you capturing your love through images! We hope that you love love love what we got! You two are one awesome couple and we wish you the best of luck in the future!
By the way…. We’ve decided that we REALLY like destination weddings, so if you’re thinking about it, think about us.
Stay tuned for the amazing Day After Session that includes shots on a lifeguard stand, a pier, and of course… in the ocean.

Okay – so – we’re still in Mexico… but we just couldn’t WAIT to show you all some of the images we captured of April & Joe while we’ve been here. They are such an amazing couple and their love for each other is so sweet… it just makes the images a million times better! So – we decided that we were going to show you just ONE picture to tease you all and get you excited about what’s been going on here in Cancun. Unfortunately, there are SO many amazing pictures, we couldn’t narrow it down to less than FOUR! LOL!
You will get to see a larger Sneak Peek here pretty soon, but while we’ve been wasting the day away by the pool, we’ve decided to show you just a little glimpse of the amazing-ness of April and Joe.

We knew Sarah and Wes were in love by the way she talked about him. When we took Sarah around the Stockyards for her bridal session, she told us all about her beau – how sweet, kind, and handsome he was. Her eyes lit up when she talked about him, and a smile spread across her face in a way that I know only love can create. We had no reservations about the love they had for each other, but we also had no idea how head over heels they are for each other. On their wedding day, they were both constantly in tears leading up to – and throughout – the ceremony. They cried tears of happiness, anticipation, excitement, and true love. It was SO special to be a part of their day!
Sarah and Wes got married at the Rambling Oaks Ranch right outside of Granbury and it was a beautiful location! Special thanks to Katoiya at Bella Domani Events for keeping everyone organized on Sarah’s wedding day! If you have thought about hiring a wedding planner for your wedding, you should definitely consider Katoiya – she was amazing!
Sarah & Wes, thank you so so much for allowing us to be a part of your incredibly special day! You are both so sweet and special and we are very blessed to know you! Hope you love your sneak peek!
Sarah gave her mom a special handkerchief before the wedding and it was such a sweet moment between the two of them!
Sarah also gave her husband-to-be a photo album with a sweet message inside… and Wes couldn’t contain himself. This was SUCH an emotional moment for everyone in the room (especially Wes!)!
Sarah & Wes opted not to see each other before the wedding, but had one quick little moment before the wedding to reaffirm what was about to happen! I love how you can see the tears in Wes’ eyes!
This takes my breath away every time I see it! Look!
And once the ceremony was over – there was nothing but smiles! I LOVE this!
After the ceremony, Sarah and Wes got to spend about 10 minutes just soaking in everything that was whirling around them! When I came in to get them for pictures, they were silly in love!
I don’t think they could have held each other any closer during the dance… so sweet!
Sarah had a photo booth at her reception and it was a HUGE hit!
Sarah’s rings in the sunflowers that were used in her Dad’s memorial. I thought this was so neat to be able to incorporate the rings into!
And this one… well it’s just fun to play with the rings!
What a fun location!
I caught Sarah & Wes in the photobooth having a little fun of their own!
