todd + jess // a playa del carmen wedding story

it was a hot Hot HOT day in playa del carmen, mexico…
and the evening was cooled off with a rush of a tropical storm,
two of our very best friends invited their closest friends
and family to bear witness to the beginning of their love story.

years of firsts + flirting, earning their PHDs,
expanding their family with their pup Toby,
countless adventures + an unfathomable amount
of stories, …all of that, lead up to this day.

this beautiful day.
…a day + week that none of us will soon forget.
this beautiful love.
…a love that we could all take a thing or two from.
these incredible human beings.
…two people i admire + cherish so greatly.

this is their story,

i howled at the moon with friends
and then the sun came crashing in…
but all the possibilities,
no limits, just epiphanies.

  1. Always love looking at the wedding pictures you have taken! Even more fun when they are of people you know. The pictures of Todd & Jessica’s wedding are incredible! Simply gorgeous! Can’t believe you kids are all old enough to marry! A few more months and the bride will be you! Exciting times ahead! Now if we can just marry off Michael!

  2. Your pictures are absolutely beautiful!!!! Thank you so much for sharing. It was such a pleasure working with you, your family and your friends. Thank you for allowing me to be part of such an important day in your lives!
