One and Only Palmilla Resort in Cabo San Lucas Mexico was the beautiful backdrop for this family photo shoot. Alec and I shoot over 70 destination weddings a year and our company Alec and T. Video Production shoots about 50 wedding videos a year . Oh Yes… It is really really nice when we have the time to shoot a family session. The sessions are always totally relaxed and go by so fast. I think a really good key is not to start to early. We like to begin about 1 hour and half before sunset. Do not get wet until the very very last 10 minutes~ leave the beach photos until the very end~ Move around to as many locations as possible~ Laugh have fun, drink what ever.. stiffness will kill these sessions. Get your photographer on the phone and see if you feel comfortable . Get your hair and make up done if you can its worth it. Wear clothes in the same color tones, but not to matchy matchy. Its 2 hours out of your life that forever stops time in the life of your family! I wish I had these photos for my own family.. Well actually I am going to do them next week,. If I had to find the time I would never have a single family photo, so we are making the time~ Alec and T. family photos coming soon!!
Engagement photos in Los Cabos. The beautiful Cabo locations seem to be endless. We really could spend the whole day just going from one great photo location to the next. Good news is we don’t spend the whole day, the sessions are really fast about 2 hours depending on travel time. I always suggest to avoid the wedding venue you have chosen. Have 2 wardrobe changes one casual and one a bit more upscale. We do not like the wardrobe to match exactly~ but it should stay in the same color tones. Please have your hair and makeup done professionally.. Thank you Suzanne Morel for Jamie’s hair and make up it was beautiful. Engagement sessions are a great way to get to know your photographer, if you have the chance~ but not totally necessary, especially on destinations~ Sometimes its nice to have a totally different back drop. Beach wedding photos~ City engagement photos?? Totally your call . We are glad that Jamie and Justin decided on Cabo! We had a really great afternoon~Alec and I are looking forward to the wedding coming this May~ T
When my friend Amy Abbott contacted me to do family shoot I jumped on the chance. We have been so busy with weddings the past few years, we have not had time to do many of these sessions.. And I love them! We met the Abbots at a local beach and spent about an hour and 30 minutes that seemed to go by in a flash. If you have children take the time and have a family sessions.. They grow up so fast..Once they grow up you will treasure good photos. They are priceless memories of moments in time. These photos will forever preserve the Abbot family laughing and loving each other in Cabo San Lucas Mexico… How cool is that! This was a great day, we laughed and played with friends! xT
What a perfect location for family photos! Los Cabo has some amazing beaches, perfect backdrops for great family photo session! Vikki, Bobby, Chase and Conner need to be making commercials or should be the poster family for Snell ..Come to Cabo and you will look this happy and healthy.LOL Alec and I love family photo shoots and wish we had the time to do them more often. The first time I spoke with Vikki on the phone I knew I needed to meet her. A totally confident, out going Texan that can talk as mush as I can. She warned me her family was good looking and she was 100% correct. I am so jealous of these photos.I really need some soon of Alec myself and Liam. Vikki I will see you the next time you come to Cabo and I think its soon? I just think all these photos should be blown up( framed) and a family wall should be born. Besos T
Alec and I met up with Linda and Sierus a few weeks ago in LA for this engagement session. Its always great to be able to shoot engagement photos before the wedding. These sessions are just pure fun, no pressure or strict time-lines! We get to just run around and shoot for an hour or 2. Downtown Los Angele’s has so many great photography locations, but I have to say that the Disney Concert Hall is one of my favorites! Linda and Sierus have a Cabo San Lucas destination wedding planned for this coming June. Alec and I feel honored to be able to photograph this couple. I would like to thank Vari from Allure Event Design for introducing Alec and I to them. Sierus my tall and handsome groom and Linda our million dollar smile bride, we will see you in June!! Love you guys!! T
Luke my very talented and famous director & Sarah the beautiful and funny and sexy Actress !! We are so excited about their up and coming wedding!! A true one of a kind couple. I am 1000 percent sure they have chosen the perfect photography and video company ( Alec, me and the crew!!) to capture their wedding day. I love them both! When they talk about wedding details I get excited.( Oh yeah, wedding party will be in the air) When ever a couple is super excited and enjoying the process of the wedding. (its for us) I would Jump off the bridge If they asked me to! Oh shit we almost did on this engagement photo session. I have enjoyed every phone call and loved meeting up in LA!!! Luke please give my huge apology to your Mom for making you late for dinner. But don’t you just love that very last photo!
Jennifer & Jeff’s engagement photo session was in San Diego California.Alec and I are getting ready to shoot their wedding Photos in Los Cabos Mexico at the beautiful Esperanza resort in November!! I fell in love with Jenn after 5 minutes on the phone, I think we talked about everything except her wedding at first, she told be about her family as seen below.. and I talk about my pregnancy and how I was about to have Liam any day,by the end of our conversation we knew that we would be a good match to capture their wedding and decided that after baby Liam was born Alec and I would shoot their wedding engagement photos in San Diego before we headed back to Cabo San Lucas for a whirlwind of October weddings.
This was the Nike store in San Francisco,we were not suppose to shoot inside the store,so I distracted the guard asking for directions and Alec got in Place April & Evan were great!! Alec snapped off about 10 photos ,we actually made friends with the guy..
