Colleen+Matt | Conchas Chinas, Mexico

Colleen and Matt run, but not in the normal sense of the word run. They run marathons. Ultramarathons to be exact. I got Colleen’s first email as I was about halfway through reading Born To Run, which looks at the Tarahumara (a tribe in the north central canyon area of Mexico) and their long distance running ability along with the history of ultramarathons and running in general. Obviously, as anyone who knows me can attest, I had chosen the book based on my interest in the Tarahumara, not running. Colleen proceeded to tell me that they were currently traveling for the Leadville 100 (one of the first and probably biggest races and heavily featured in the book) and they wouldn’t have great access to email, but they loved my work and wanted me to be a part of their day. I remember sitting at the stoplight with my mouth open thinking to myself that a week ago I didn’t even know that ultramarathons and the Leadville 100 existed and now I have a potential groom running in one. Since coming to Mexico eight years ago my life has been filled with serendipitous moments such as these and it truly makes me question the connection between each of us and how deliberate our interactions are even though we might not think it at the time. It can’t all be chance can it?

Enough half ass philosophizing. Fast forward a year and here we are at La Mansion in Conchas Chinas. Big shout out to Jenny JJ who came down and shot with me. Overall amazing human being and photographer whose high kicks are unparalleled.

This wedding is also being featured on Style Me Pretty. Head here for all of the amazing details that Dazzling put together.

Rachel - These are absolutely gorgeous. I am in love with the photos of the day after shoot. Kudos!

Angela+Stephen | The Bradley Estate, Massachusetts

Angela and Stephen have the type of love that makes anyone not currently in love (like myself) throw up in their mouths a little bit. I’m talking so much love for each other that it’s infectious. They’ve been dating since high school so their families are tight and their friends are tighter. Stephen proposed at Erin and Tommy’s wedding in Charleston last year which to some might seem like an intrusion on a day meant for someone else, but Erin (Angela’s best friend since the third grade) wouldn’t have had it any other way. You see Erin lives for love. And Angela and Stephen’s families exude love and in the end isn’t that really what it’s all about? From the most epic maid of honor speech in history to the hotel lobby and the after party, it really was such an honor to be a part of their day. Even though I may have throw up in my mouth a little bit.

Their wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty a few days ago, but since my oh so amazing Mexican internet wasn’t functioning and then I was en route to a wedding in Tulum (yes, life is still rough) I wasn’t able to upload until today. You can check out all of the gorgeous details Angela put together there.

Rachel - No wait these are absolutely gorgeous! I am just so amazed by how you capture the emotion of each event differently. No two look alike which seems so very hard in the wedding world these days!

Jillian - Hi Dana! Yes I will be here for the event. I’m collaborating on a project with the scholarship kids for the fundraiser and will also be at the circus event. Hope to see you there!

dana - Ha! the kind of love that makes someone not in love throw up a little bit in their mouths…pretty funny.

I saw your website after the typical circuitous path that is impossible to reconstruct. Something like, EntreAmigos, Circo de los Ninos, photography etc. My wife and i were in San Pancho mid Feb and coming down this time just my daughter and I. Fortunate to be there during the circo de…event. Will you be doing photography for this event?

I do a bit of the non-profit support using photography as well in Boulder (see website listed above). San Pancho, a lovely place. Hopefully we will run in to you there.

Amanda+Kian | Zihuatanejo, Mexico

Zihuatanejo Mexico Destination Wedding by Jillian Mitchell

Amanda and Kian’s intimate affair is being featured this month in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine. They had a weekend long event at two of the most amazing venues in Zihua, Hotel Tentaciones and Casa del Arbol. We hit the streets the day after to take some photos around town. If you’ve never been to Zihua it’s a must see in Mexico. It has a booming tourism industry, but has still managed to keep it’s small town Mexico charm. I’ll be posting some of the personal work I shot around town later in the week.

Chanda+Marcus | Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Chanda and Marcus. Where do I begin? Chanda hired me almost five years ago (when I was just starting out down here in Mexico) to shoot her birthday party which was taking place in Sayulita. You see Chanda goes big, real big. She doesn’t just go on vacation, she throws “Takeovers”, where she and her closest friends take over an area/resort/town, you name it. Every now and then Chanda would send me a note telling me how I would be the one to document her wedding. Fast forward to last year when I get an ecstatic email and then phone call telling me that she got engaged the day before to the love of her life. Marcus told me that before he even popped the question he knew who the photographer was going to be.

Words (especially mine since I often struggle to find the right ones) can not describe what an honor it was to be a part of not only their day, but their entire weekend. These are two amazingly beautiful human beings, inside and out, and their friends and family equally so. From the scavenger hunt to the bachelor phone piñata to absolutely killing on the dance floor the night of the wedding (thanks to super Dallas DJ Rob the General who they flew in from Texas), this crew throws down like no other. They actually surprised their guests by teaching the mariachi “Do Watcha Wanna” by the Rebirth Brass Band and it was epic.

I’m trying to keep all my weddings to one post now and although it might be a stretch fitting four days of photography into such a small space, I’m going for it. Here is the Cabo Destination Wedding Takeover in all its glory.

This wedding is also being featured on the ever so fabulous wedding blog What Junebug Loves. You can see all the details Chanda put together for her weekend there.
