S+R=Caliente! | Cabo Wedding Photographers

Cabo Wedding Photographers

S+R are having their dream destination wedding in a few months at the luxurious Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas. We are so looking forward to their day, and to working with fabulous event coordinator Jenny of Baja Weddings.

A few weeks ago we met the couple in Cabo for their YOU+ME engagement session. Since we'll be staying exclusively at the resort on their wedding day, we wanted to capture the some of the spirit of Cabo during their shoot - and we had a blast!

We started off at a tiny little restaurant outside of town...with some pink grapefruit & mexican tequila! Chris decided on the spot that starting off engagement sessions with tequila shall henceforth be regular procedure :)

A little local colour.

And a lot of laughing! What a beautiful smile!

The vibrant colours in Los Cabos are a photographer's dream.

I love a bride who wears her red-soled Louboutins in the dusty mexican streets!

Back in Cabo San Lucas, we couldn't resist this red wall.

My fav from the day - love the symmetry!

Caliente - si! These guys are hot stuff!

A panga rental is a great idea for a trip to El Arco, Cabo's famous natural rock arch - it is beautiful!

These two are so in love - I love capturing moments like these!

We arrived on Lover's Beach to perfect, gorgeous, golden light. And had fun playing on the beach, and getting a little (okay, a lot!) wet.

Congratulations! We can't wait for your Cabo San Lucas destination wedding! To see more of their Cabo engagement session, check out all of Chris' favourite images in the featured gallery on our website under Destination: Cabo.

And yes, it's true, CHRIS+LYNN PHOTOGRAPHERS is now also based out of Cabo San Lucas. We'll now be dividing our time between beautiful Vancouver and beautiful Baja, Mexico.

Ashley+Jason=Sincerity {Part I} | Cabo Wedding Photographers

Cabo San Lucas Wedding Photographers

Horseback riding, a sand storm, mucho tequila, and birthday celebrations with great new friends - Ashley & Jason's Los Cabos engagement session is so full of fun memories for us.

Though we'd been in email contact with them for almost a year about their big Indian wedding in Vancouver, we didn't meet Ashley &Jason in person until they decided to make a stop in Cabo en route from their trip to Africa to do their YOU+ME engagement session. Jason told us he was watching for us from the balcony when we walked up, and was relieved to see we "looked normal - not like some weirdo photographers" Whew! :) We were thrilled to find out that not only were they super-stylin' food & travel connoisseurs who were up for anything, they were also completely down-to-earth & real.

Some of our favs:

Getting comfortable at Cabo Azul Resort

It was a lot less comfortable on these horses - well, for me! Ashley & Jason looked totally romantic on their  rides in the surf and sand.

My favorite set - simple lines & hot pink!

We cooled down with some homemade icecream in San Jose and the first of many margaritas.

Boat ride to an island beach to enjoy the sunset - no, scratch that, a sandstorm! Lots of wind meant Ashley & Jason were forced to snuggle up against the rocks.

After a chilly boat ride back, we celebrated Ashley & Jason's engagement and Chris' birthday at an Argentinian BBQ restaurant with rock'n roll, blood sausages, and a long-haired waiter who liked to philosophize on love & ply us with tequila. Luckily, there's no incriminating photos of the party that ensued :)

Thank you, Ashley & Jason!

Stay tuned for images from their Vancouver wedding!
