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.
