Mexico

Hi friends! I just arrived in Playa Del Carmen yesterday for a destination wedding that will be tomorrow, as well as a day after shoot on Saturday. I am so excited to shoot down here again and it brings back great memories from Shannon and Randy's wedding I here last April. 

As I sit and type in 80 degree weather in the middle of November, I am reminded why I love destination weddings and thought I would share. 

1. UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTS: As an artist, new surroundings force you to see things differently. I love shooting somewhere I have never seen before because it keeps me on my toes and doesn't allow me to play it safe.

2. LAID BACK ATMOSPHERE: I know this might not be the case for everyone, but my destination wedding experiences have been really chill and laid back. Typically only the closest family and friends make the investment, which means that you only have to host a limited amount of people. Being on a wedcation is the tops in my opinion. Win-win-win.

3. TIME, TIME, TIME: When we do destination weddings, we typically build a day into the front and end of the trip to shoot stuff we normally wouldn't have time to shoot. When you are at a resort, you can get a lot of good stuff before and after the wedding, because unlike a church, you have unrestricted amounts of time at the venue. I love waking up for a sunrise or shooting at sundown. Even without the bride and groom present, shooting those experiences enhances the overall story and helps bring back more memories and emotion when watching your wedding film.

I snapped a couple images from my trip so far and wanted to share. Enjoy! -Matt
