Natalie and Brock knew they wanted to celebrate their marriage in a big way with all their favorite people, and what better way than a full wedding weekend in tropical Puerto Vallarta, Mexico? These two brought those they love most for a fun weekend under the sun at Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta, and we’re so grateful they brought us along to capture it all as well. This was our favorite kind of wedding; the wedding weekend experience!
The Engagement Session
After Natalie and Brock got the opportunity to party with friends and family poolside a couple days, we strolled along the property of their resort for a sweet engagement session in the destination they would be married in. We loved this special time with them as we got to briefly catch up, and Natalie and Brock got a couple hours to simply be together and soak in the memories together.
The Welcome Party
As the sun set on this beautiful wedding eve, the bonfire was being lit, cocktails were being mixed and churros were coming out hot and fresh; it was time to party! There was something truly so freeing and exhilarating about kicking off one’s shoes, feeling the sand under one’s feet and celebrating beachside. It was the perfect way to officially kick off the wedding weekend with guests!
Natalie and Brock’s big day had finally arrived. There was a gentle breeze blowing through the Palm Trees and the sound of Gulls filled the sky. Natalie was surrounded by beautifully vibrant florals as well as her best friends dressed in equally vibrant bridesmaid dresses. We loved that Natalie and Brock leaned into the tropical feel of their exotic wedding destination by incorporating fun color! Natalie even tied in dried orange slices to her flat lay, cake and reception place settings to really establish the tropical aesthetic. She and Brock shared so many special moments on their wedding day! We loved sharing their emotional first look and vow reading with them, as well as their first dance surrounded by cold sparks.
Kind Words from Natalie
Cameron and Elizabeth are such a dream team to work with! I was blown away by everything they did, from the big picture down to the tiny details. I had a vision for our first engagement session, and they knew exactly how to execute that vision and even elevate it! My husband and I were so nervous because we are awkward in front of the camera, but Cameron made us feel so comfortable and Elizabeth was great at posing us (all the way down to our hands thank goodness!!) They traveled with us to Puerto Vallarta for the wedding and we couldn’t have loved our pictures or video more. They were great with coordinating our big wedding party, making sure the first look went smoothly, and capturing the small details you don’t always get to see in the whirlwind of the big day! The video was such a special and perfect representation of our weekend, too. The cinematography was incredible and we will be watching it for years to come! Overall I could not have imagined a better duo to capture our special weekend!!
Kind Words from Brock
Cameron and Elizabeth were amazing to work with! I’ve never been someone who was comfortable in front of a camera for long periods of time but they both made our sessions such pleasant and fun experiences. During the welcome party, ceremony, and reception they captured the most amazing moments for my wife and I! Towards the end of our wedding week Cameron and Elizabeth started to feel like friends who were just there to celebrate our special day! We would recommend them 10/10 times!
