A Casa Dorada wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Diana and Tim” Whom I love past the moon” emailed me almost a year before their wedding. They were in the very early stages of their wedding planning. Diana and I went back and forth on many wedding related things and soon became fast friends. When I met them for the first time it was in July, I think we talked for more then 2 hours and the only reason we stopped is because I had another meeting and was running late. I knew that Tim and Diana would have amazing photos! When you are hiring a wedding photographer it is so important to get on the phone. Have a conversation for a few minutes. Chemistry is important, the camera lens does not lie. hopefully you will like the person that is pointing a camera at you. I am excited to post this blog! Alec and I send a big hug to Tim and Diana in Canada. We will see you on your next Cabo visit! Cheers! Alec and T

Casa Dorada Weddings in Cabo San Lucas!! Destination weddings are totally the way to go as far as I am concerned, and its not just because I am a destination wedding photographer. I actually had a destination wedding! Its such a great way to bring family and friend together. I met Sam and Tam about a year before the wedding and we stayed close the entire time, I refuse to let them continue life as husband and wife without Alec and I some how remaining friends! The great thing is they are from Los Angele’s and we are in LA all the time. Tam and Sam had their wedding guests stay at Villa Del Arco where we shot the getting ready photos and then moved the wedding to Casa Doradas 12 tribes restaurant! The wedding went off without a bump in the road! I would say that about 99% of all our weddings do go off in a stress free manner. I think its important to remember this..Your wedding is one day out of your life that you should enjoy every minute, from the getting ready to the cutting of the cake. Make sure the people around you can roll with the punches. Make sure that everyone is working as a team your wedding planner ~photographers~ florists ~DJs~should all be their for one thing and that is you. At the end of the day your wedding is the event of your life! If you are considering a destination wedding and looking into Cabo please call me!! I can direct you to the venue that may be right for you. Alec and I have worked in all the resorts and now them all well..The good the great the bad and the ugly LOL! Depending on what is important to you has everything to do with the resort you choose. Some resorts are great for vacation but not for weddings and some resorts rock at both, some resorts you need an outside wedding planner and some resorts you don’t. So many things to think about. The preparation that should be fun, we can help! Tam and Sam we love you both!! We will hopefully see you in LA at the end of the month!! T
This destination wedding took place in Cabo San Lucas Mexico. The wedding location was Casa Dorada. I suggest Casa Dorada as a wedding venue often, As long as the ceremony is on the deck that over looks the beach, the deck has a perfect view of the arch. I do not suggest a beach ceremony!! The beach is extremely busy and its impossible to get any photos with out sun bathers. and on lookers. The deck feels way more private. The 12 Tribes restaurant is totally private and the food has always been good. Michael & Alyssa could not have been more easy going and a joy to work with! Alec and my photography style is tailored to each couples true personality! This sexy couple needed sexy photos.. well actually it was impossible to photograph them any other way!! Although Alyssa’s cute goofy side popped out ever now and again! We adored them both xoox T
I have to start with Lynsey and Chris we love you !! Lynsey and I became friends in the process of her wedding planning and I’m sure will stay this way forever! I think it started when she said she wanted to get married on the beach out front of Casa Dorada… I had a heart attack….Then I begged her to have her ceremony on the deck. NOT THE BEACH!! No No No.. The deck at Casa Dorada is beautiful ( with views) and is a great ceremony setting, The beach is just to busy with tourists, and makes it almost impossible to get pretty clean ceremony photos. Alec and I think that the 12 tribes restaurant is a fabulous setting and the resort is a wonderful wedding location. Lynsey was saved by the bell and did have her wedding ceremony on the deck. GREAT PHOTOS! Private elegant ceremony. The wedding coordinator Sarai ( Signature Weddings ) Is known for her creative touches and once again Sarai, made this wedding completely unique!! I loved the way the chairs angled and the chuppah was super romantic one of my favorites. During the ceremony a little bird landed on the corner of the chuppah and chirped ( It felt like out of a movie) The details of orchids on silk ribbons and pink satin pillows thrown around, nothing looked commercial everything looked handmade and placed with care. Lynsey’s hair and make was done by Suzanne Morel, Located in Cabo San Lucas and stayed perfect all night! I received a beautiful email from Lynsey saying her wedding was perfect that she would not have changed a thing!! This is exactly what we love to hear. Everybody come to Cabo!!!
Casa Dorada is located in Los Cabos Mexico, On the busy Mendando beach. The 12 Tribes restaurant and patio over looks the ocean with a perfect and beautiful view of the famous Cabo arch. Jenny from Baja weddings introduced Alec and I to Danielle and Steve a few months back. Thanks Jen!! After a few phone calls and emails we decided that we were a perfect match. Danielle and Steve are from Canada..cold..cold..And the weather in Cabo was perfect for them, as usual. Alec and I wanted to say thank you for having us be apart of your extremely special day!! Much love and blessings! Alec & T.
