We recently returned from photographing a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and had the opportunity to sneak in a few other photo shoots during our stay. Our friend Mandi, who is co-owner of Champagne Wedding & Events, was also in attendance for the wedding. In fact, her husband Darren was a groomsman in the wedding! It was so fun to connect while in Mexico and to set aside some time for a maternity session.
Azul Fives Hotel was the location for the wedding and it was the perfect backdrop for a maternity session as well. We made use of the hammocks, the life-size chess board, the beautiful landscaping, and of course the gorgeous aqua blue ocean.
While the locals found the temperatures to be a bit on the cool side, us Northwesterners were quite pleased with the low 80 degree weather. We were able to manage.
Here is a selection of our favorites from Mandi & Darren’s destination maternity session in Mexico:
