Cindy+Zvonimir=Bellissima | Cabo Wedding Photographers

Cabo - Destination Wedding Photographers



Cindy & Zee's Cabo San Lucas wedding was a feast for the senses! The luxurious private estate of Villa Bellissima in Pedregal and the renowned Cabo Del Sol oceanfront resort were the gorgeous backdrops for the Vancouver couple's event. Add to that the wedding design & planning of the wonderful Karla Casillas, and you have a dream destination wedding. Some of our favorites from their day.

Hot pink Louboutins - the perfect way to start the day :)

Such a stunning bride!











My fav image of the day.



While Cindy and the girls spent the morning getting their nails painted, having their hair & makeup done, and getting dressed, Zee had his own style of wedding preparation.



The romantic beach ceremony performed by the always-wonderful Revered Marco Arechiga had everyone laughing and crying.







Married!



What's a wedding in Mexico without mariachis to celebrate?!











Cindy told me what she loves about Zee is that he can always make her laugh!





Villa Bellissima was transformed when we returned.



And it only got more elegant as when the sun went down.







The candlelight combined with the lighting design made for such a dramatic space.


Can't forget the candy bar!







Chris' fav - a little romance in the corridors of the villa.



Congratulations, Cindy + Zee!

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!
