Karen+Graham=Peace

Cabo San Lucas Wedding Photographer



"Completely at peace." That's what Karen said to me when I asked her how she felt a few minutes before she was about to see her husband-to-be at their First Look. After all the planning and travel (and let's admit it, a little stress!) involved in organizing a destination wedding at Cabo Azul Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, Graham & Karen practically floated through their day, happy, calm, and united.

Although I had never met Graham, and only had a brief conversation with Karen over a year ago, I felt like I knew both of them from being a faithful reader of Karen's blog http://torontogirlwest.com. I knew that Karen takes great pictures of food (especially sushi), that she met her goal of running her half-marathon in Long Beach less than a month before her wedding, that she & Graham LOVE to travel, and that they have the cutest little puppy named Daisy. So it was a privilege to be there to document the transformation of Graham - the person Karen's readers know as "The Boy" and "The FiancĂ©" - to "The Husband"!

Here are some of our favs from their beautiful day.





Beautiful bride.



Karen's parents were overcome when they saw her.



Just a few more portraits. I adore Karen's handmade Mantilla Veil made by Anne Michelle Heirlooms



First Look!







Great lines & patterns of the benches at Cabo Azul's Chapel.













Married!



I love the colors & character of San Jose!





I just love the vibe of this one :)

And some late-night portraits of Karen & Graham. Chris' favorite from the night.





Congratulations, K+G!
