Viva Mexico!

June 9th we got to shoot our very first DESTINATION wedding and it was GREAT! Ribka and Aman were married on the beach in beautiful Isla de Mujeres, Mexico, a small island near Cancun. Her wedding photos will be posted soon, but for now I thought I'd share some of our personal pics from the week (yep, Henry went with me and we got to stay a WHOLE WEEK!!) Here are a few of my many, many, MANY photos ...

Highly recommended hotel! It's not fancy, but it's cute and right next to a gorgeous beach :)

Iguanas are fast! They're all over the island but don't like to stand still for photos :)

This picture freaks Roxy out! She swears now that dad got bit by an alligator in Mexico :) This (and the apes below) are a few of the very realistic looking looking creatures at the Rainforest Cafe in Cancun.

A really cool looking little playground near our hotel. Keep in mind how HOT it is in Mexico and that all the play equipment is METAL! No wonder nobody's playing on it ...

This kid was CUTE. I caught him picking his nose :)

My fogged up lens early the morning we left made for at least one really cool photo!

Anyone thinking of getting married on the beach should consider Isla! It's GORGEOUS! Make sure you call me so I can come, too :)

XOXO, Sarah & Henry

Hey Sarah! Wow, your pictures from the island are so cool... I'm jealous, none of my pictures turned out that good :) Glad to hear that you and Henri had fun. Aman and I had a hard time coming back to reality after the week in Isla.
