You´ve just got engaged and you´re still living the euphoria with your fiancée, friends and family about how he proposed to you and when and where you´re going to get married. You´ve decided on your wedding date and wedding venue but you now need to look at wedding photographers, but when is the best time to book a wedding photographer?
There is a major difference between wedding photos nowadays and the wedding photos of when your parents or grandparents got married…the medium they were delivered on. In those days, a printed wedding album and wedding photo prints were the norm. That wedding album has probably stood the test of time, and what´s more, it has an irreplaceable value in that it has been seen and passed down generations, and will continue to do so…far more so than digital photos will.
As far as wedding traditions go, the bride would not see the groom on her wedding day prior to the ceremony. A tradition that is still maintained to this day, the moment the bride walks down the aisle is when the groom has his first glimpse of his soon wife-to-be. So, you may be asking, where does a “First look” come into your wedding day and how does it differ from the tradition of not seeing the bride until the ceremony.
Once a bride has booked me as her wedding photographer, I am often asked: “Do I need a wedding videographer?”. In short, it is absolutely necessary to have a wedding video to look back upon in the years to come. Because you will be kicking yourself when you look at your wedding photos on your 1 year wedding anniversary and say to yourself “I wish we had a wedding video”.
Getting married in Cancún, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, or anywhere in the Mexican Riviera Maya is very common with foreign couples, and they're one of the most popular places in the world for destination weddings. I am sure it comes as no surprise, many foreigners get engaged here and seek to have their destination wedding in one of the abundant locations in Mexico, live it on those pristine beaches in the Riviera Maya, in a majestic colonial house in Merida, Yucatan or in a lush garden setting in Cuernavaca, Morelos. Something the Mexican wedding scene doesn´t lack are copious and stunning wedding venues.

So you've covered a fantastic wedding with a beautiful couple and you have some great timeless wedding shots that you´re anxious to review and process. Now what? If you are an Adobe Lightroom user, managing a workflow post-wedding day can be cumbersome and monotonous if you don´t have access to the right tools, or if they aren't used correctly.
Chiapas in Mexico is often regarded by locals and tourists alike, as one of the most beautiful and diverse locations to visit in Mexico. No wonder it is so popular for landscape pictures and travel pictures alike. Abundant in historical sights, ruins and temples, more traditional and cultural relics than you could possibly imagine, and a place called home by many foreigners who choose the laid-back and friendly lifestyle that is so prominent there.

It´s not an event as extravagant as portrayed in the film Spectre with Daniel Craig. But, El día de los muertos (or Day of the Dead in English), is a very real, very traditional celebration that takes place on 1st November every year in Mexico, and other Latin countries, although it is also celebrated in other cultures around the world.
In July I was fortunate enough to go on holiday to a beautiful coastal region in Croatia commonly known as the Makarska Riviera. After a 4 hour delayed flight from London Gatwick, we landed in Split International Airport in the early evening and then took a 1.5 hour taxi ride to the small coastal town of Tucepi (or Tučepi).
Last month I was privileged enough to accompany an NGO called Fondo Unido (or United Way) to a variety of institutions they assist in Mexico City. I have supported them in my free time as a volunteer, and this occasion gave me a valuable insight not only into their projects and activities, but also where the materials and monetary resource which is acquired through donations and corporate awareness programmes, is appropriately distributed.
