puerto vallarta destination wedding - trash the dress session - erin & collin

here are the TTD photos from downtown puerto vallarta...

las caletas destination wedding in puerto vallarta - erin & collin

erin and collin's wedding in puerto vallarta was simply incredible. it feels like that is all i should say, and then let the photos speak for themselves, but i've got to mention a few things...

first off, erin and collin were the best! they were so welcoming to us, so much fun, and they were up for everything! the wedding day was amazing, and the trash the dress session (photos to be posted soon) was a blast - and filled with laughs.

all three days we shot had their own thrills. jenny and i officially met erin and collin just prior to the rehearsal dinner, and as we were talking the sky turned a brilliant orange - so we had an impromptu photo session. the rehearsal dinner was at villa mia. erin and collin booked via milla (and their two other adjacent villas) for all their guests - and it was gorgeous. This meant they had the entire place to themselves - all the drinks, meals (prepared by the villa's chef), and service included. a perfect way to enjoy time with your closest friends and family for your destination wedding.

the wedding was at las caletas which is simply a photographer's dream. everywhere you turn there is a beautiful place to take photos. i was able to shoot with erin and collin for quite a good amount of time at caletas, but we didn't come close to taking advantage of all that caletas has to offer. las caletas can only be reached by boat, and is the former hideaway for director john huston. if you're looking for a private beach wedding, this is the place! i'm thrilled to be heading back to caletas in june and then again next may!

for the day after - trash the dress session, we started out in downtown puerto vallarta and then found a gorgeous little beach just south of town to shoot just before the sunset.
