My very first trip to Mexico was eight years ago and I fell in love! My husband and I decided we’d celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary in Playa Del Carmen!
I couldn’t wait for my wedding season to end to make the trip. A break was much needed to rest and to come back ready to create and curate beautiful wedding day photography for the remainder of my 2017 wedding season in New York. My husband and I each packed a carry-on with only the necessities. This wasn’t easy because I’m always wanting to bring home beautiful images to remember my trips which means a camera, a couple of lenses, batteries, travel tripod, etc.. So, on this little escape to relax and connect with my husband, I decided to travel light. I brought my 35mm film camera and 4 rolls of film. We also agreed to just a couple of photo walks during our stay and made sure to not disrupt the pool time I had promised him. After all, we had books to read and drinks to enjoy.
Join us on our morning walk on the beach that ended up back to our resort. See the spectrum of colors that enveloped the skies and imagine the soft sounds of the waves meeting the shoreline. And then imagine that as the sun raised itself above the clouds that seemed to rest on the horizon all throughout the day, everything around you is awakened with color!
Just a side note for my fellow film photography fans: Thanks to a beautiful stranger, we have a photo of my husband and I walking on the beach. And if it wasn’t for our iPhone for the save we wouldn’t have that beautiful image of the town church bells… because I ran out of film.
Thanks for stopping in and taking a look!
