Killer Cabo wedding venue: Sunset da Mona Lisa. Alec and I have shot over 30 weddings at Sunset da Mona Lisa and still, to this day, look at the new weddings and just cannot get over the photos that are produced at this wedding location. This wedding is one of my favorite Sunset da Mona Lisa weddings! The light was beautiful, the sky was perfect, and the couple…I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful to work with. We had instant chemistry with Jennifer and Paul. Jennifer told me her story of finding this blog and photos from the venue and knowing in her heart that this would be the place she would have her wedding!! After four years of looking for the perfect place. If you are thinking about a Sunset da Mona Lisa wedding, e-mail me†or give me a ring (323) 455-3342. Sunset da Mona Lisa has one of the most dramatic sunsets I have ever seen. It’s a great location for a small wedding or a complete restaurant buyout for larger weddings and events. There are several resorts within five minutes of the venue! The key to great wedding photos in this location is timeline, timeline, timeline. Off by five minutes, and you will miss the dramatic photos. I am happy to blog with this wedding as my first wedding blog of 2012!! It’s a great sign for the future: Loving couples, great weddings, wonderful venues, amazing photography!! Happy New Year, we love you guys!! Alec and T.
Thank You Suzanne Morel Wedding Hair and Make in Cabo San Lucas
The Cabo Del Sol Club House is a wonderful wedding venue. It’s located in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, about 10 minutes from downtown Cabo. Next door to the Club House is the Sheraton Hacienda resort and Fiesta Americana resort, great options for your wedding guests to stay. Cabo Del Sol Club House offers a few different ceremonial site locations, all private and with wonderful ocean views. If you are considering a beach or sand ceremony the club house has an extremely private beach. All beaches in Mexico are public; this beach has limited access so it feels private. It is a Los Cabos wedding venue to consider. Michael and Michelle’s wedding was coordinated by Cabo Del Sol’s event manager Luz Maria. She’s known for her never ending smile and happy-go-lucky attitude. We love her! Alec and I had the chance to have Michael and Michelle over to our home before their wedding. It’s so great to get to know people on one-on-one before the event if possible (even if it’s just a few phone calls) The wedding day was wonderful and the wedding photos were spectacular. To love and M&M!! T
Thank you Suzanne Morel for great wedding hair and make up.
Thinking of a Cabo destination wedding? You should take a look at this wedding venue. Sunset Da Mona Lisa is located in Cabo and over looks the ocean with a perfect view of the arch. I have had many brides call me and what to get married at the restaurant just for these famous wedding photos! Alec and I love shooting at SSDML, its a great wedding venue and totally breathtaking. Its also a great wedding rehearsal dinner option and a for sure great dinner option if in town for a few days. Amanda was breathtaking on her own, she would have photographed beautiful anywhere! she reminded me of Charlize Theron and Brandon was pretty easy on the eye as well. Between the beautiful, extremely nice couple and the amazing venue, this wedding was an easy one to capture! Suzanne Morel for hair and makeup.Most of all We want to thank Amanda and Brandon for trusting us to capture their wedding. Much love, Alec and T
“Organizing weddings is difficult, and destination weddings are doubly hard to pull off, especially for newlyweds-to-be that have no prior experience in the art of wedding planning (i.e., neither of them had previous husbands or wives that they can use as a point of reference)”. Alec & T. Photography www.alecandt.com
Destination weddings require the meticulous touch of a matrimonial organizing veteran who has a myriad of contacts waiting to help you streamline your marriage ceremony and lessen any possible burdens and pitfalls. After all, destination weddings are a lot more labor-intensive than your average wedding thanks to the fact that you’ll probably be going in a place far, far away from home in order to add an even more romantic ambiance to your upcoming nuptials.
Wedding planners are indispensable for this type of wedding because it’s an endeavor that must be undertaken with due caution, preparation, and research. Even though the event itself will barely last a couple of hours or even half a day at most, many months of planning, booking, taking reservations, and so on must be done ahead of time in order to minimize any potential problems that can and will happen thanks to the phenomenon known as Murphy’s Law. Ergo, the main advantage you’ll have at getting a wedding organizer is to ensure that no troubles will crop up during the wedding itself. Essentially, planners are preemptive and preventive troubleshooters, so to speak.
If your wedding planner just happens to be a local expert of sorts in the venue where your destination wedding is supposed to be held, than that’s all the more beneficial for you because you’re in the hands of a matrimonial specialist who knows the ins and outs of the locale you’re visiting. Moreover, the caterers, wedding photographers, wedding cake bakers, makeup artists, and so on of your destination of choice are all readily available to you without booking extra flights for them if they’re contacts of the local planner.
Even if money is no object to you and your loved one, it’s still advisable that you avail of a wedding planner who is from the place where your destination wedding will be held in order to avoid logistical nightmares on your wedding day. A wedding coordinator is the perfect way for you to guarantee the perfect ceremony so that you won’t have to become a frazzled, incoherent mess once you and your partner get wed. After all, your wedding is something that should be enjoyed from engagement till the actual nuptials; it’s not something you should be stressed about at all.

“Regardless of where you want your wedding to be held— Mexico to Thailand, or France to Canada to the USA—making it work without a hitch remains your top priority; the big picture, if you will”.
You already have a million things to worry about by just planning the ceremony, so executing your plans and organizing things so that your wedding will come off without a hitch may be a tall order even with the combined forces of yourself and your loved one. Therefore, in order to maximize your enjoyment of your upcoming wedding celebration without getting bogged down by the details, logistics, and troubles associated with wedding planning, hiring a destination wedding planner is in order. To be true, since you’re going to have a destination wedding instead of a traditional, domestic celebration, getting a wedding planner to organize this event is nearly as necessary as the marriage license, the wedding dress, or the wedding rings themselves.
Having a highly competent and dedicated destination wedding coordinator or planner to work with will not only ensure that you’ll have a successful destination wedding celebration; he will also serve as your eyes and ears throughout the whole planning process. If you’re able to pick a particularly seasoned planner, then he’ll probably have a well-sharpened modus operandi when it comes to handling the different details needed in your wedding. From getting a wedding photographer, to finding a dress, to handling your flight details, to gathering all necessary paperwork, to giving out invitations, to getting the cake, and much, much more, he’ll make sure that no stone is left unturned in terms of your upcoming nuptial ceremony.
Furthermore, you and your special someone shouldn’t feel as though the wedding planner is a person who’ll take over the theme and tone of your glorious, life-changing event just to give you a cookie-cutter destination wedding that looks quite like the many other weddings he’s done in the past. No, wedding organizers aren’t like that; truth be told, they should be considered more like consultants than wedding architects. You and your wife- or husband-to-be still have the final say on how your wedding will ultimately look. The wedding planner is mainly there to ensure that your vision for your matrimonial rites becomes a reality. An expert organizer knows the options best suited to your tastes and presents them to you for your approval.

Sunset Da Mona Lisa is a wonderful Cabo wedding venue and a must see when planning a destination wedding. The views are endless and breathtaking. Alec and I have photographed many weddings at this location., and highly recommend it!! Kisha and Paul could not have been a nicer couple and we felt so honored to be able to share their day with them. Their intimate wedding was planned by Tammy from Cabo weddings . Tammy put great loving care into this day and it showed in every way. Alec and I walked away from this wedding feeling very touched by this super kind couple, One of those days when you pinch yourself and say Thank You God for allowing me to do this for a living!! T
Wedding at the Westin in Cabo San Lucas! Say that 3 times. LOL. I will start off this post by saying Becky you are wonderful and we are so happy for you and James. Becky was introduced to Alec and I by a local Cabo San Lucas wedding planner “Muriel Olsen” firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank-You Muriel! It was a pleasure working together with you!! From the very first phone call I had with Becky I was excited for this wedding. We had emails and phone calls back and forth for months regarding wedding details.Shoes no shoe? blue shirts white shirts? photography time-lines?? By the time the wedding was around the corner I felt as if I had a new friend and I think the photos transmit that everyone involved was relaxed comfortable and having fun.The Westin resort is a large property with many great photo options. Becky and James and the wedding party worked with us prior ceremony. Their beautiful Jewish ceremony took place after sunset followed by a party that you wished you would have been invited to. Many Many great and wonderful wishes to you both. Alec & T.
Sunset Da Mona Lisa in Cabo San Lucas still takes my breath away!! After shooting many many weddings at this location I still stop and take in the views. Maria and Clayton found the location after searching the internet and running across some beautiful photos that Alec and I had posted of the venue. Maria got ready at Casa Dorada . When I walked in and took one looked at her I knew that her eyes would love the camera and the camera would love her eyes ( she photographed like a movie star from the 40s). Every bride has something that is exceptional and we focus on it, to make sure that their individual personality’s come out in the photos. And this was a no brain- er. Clayton was about as nice as you can get. So you can imagine, once again Alec and I walk away loving what we do! Oh and did I mention?? The wedding planner was April from Baja Weddings another big plus!
I added a some Black and White photos at the end. I think the feel of the old classic look was perfect for this wedding .. but so hard to decide.. so they will get them both!

Damon and Leah know how to throw a party!! I Met Damon and Leah while waiting to catch a plane from Cabo to Los Angele’s . I have a chronic problem of talking to strangers and soon to find out so does Damon! After a few minutes, he out of the blue said to me, is your name T? Your my wedding photographer! And the rest is history. The world seems to be getting smaller. I was really happy to be the wedding photographer for this couple, I think that Alec and I captured the essence of these two perfectly! We are working on the video and I cant get enough of it, I would love to hand deliver it and watch it with them over a glass of wine> you just never know. Damon and Leah we cant wait to hear about your honeymoon! Much Love T

Weddings in the East Cape of Mexico. When I say “East Cape” I’m talking about approx 30 minutes from San Jose Del Cabo and about 50 minutes from Cabo San Lucas . The great benefit of having an East Cape wedding is music , Many of the villas in Cabo have a 10 or 11 pm shut off time …The East Cape, you can pretty much party all night. I love to talk about weddings, I could talk all day about them!! When I met Dustin for the first time over the phone we talked for over an hour, he told me about Annie his business and his children and I got his priorities instantly. When ever we are hired be anther photographer I feel honored! Thank You Annie!! When I met Annie, her eyes said it all.. I’m true..I’m beautiful.. I’m good.. I’m as loving as it gets! Alec and I watched the wedding unfold before us and knew that we were the perfect match, to capture the true moments of the day. We also captured the wedding video, Alec and T. wedding videos feel just like our photography, Stress free!! Wow just wait. Its all about moments in time. Dustin and Annie, love to you and your great family’s we treasure the opportunity to have been apart of your wedding!! xoxoox T
China and Joels Cabo San Lucas wedding, was an event pact day. I heard one of the weddings guests say as the fire dancers started, WOW it just keeps getting better. The wedding was planned and designed by Jenny from Baja weddings . I don’t think 10 minutes went by without something cool happening. China incorporated Chinese wedding traditions into the day that added another layer of flair. This destination wedding took place at the Sheraton Hacienda Resort in Los Cabos Mexico.
Esperanza resort is located in Los Cabos Mexico. Alec and I have shot several weddings at Esperanza and we just love the resort. Meghan and Robs wedding was another beautiful Esperanza wedding!! This blog post is huge, I usually do not blog with so many wedding photos but just could not pick I had about 100 chosen and had to cut it down to this 61 photos. The weather on this day was extremely hot ( not normal for June) and I was sure it was going to be a difficult shoot. I was wrong… The day was perfect and went by so fast and the shoot was wonderful . Rob and Meg are two of the sweetest people ever. When I was looking at all the photos I could not help but to notice the way they looked at each other, the way it felt like no one else was in the room, but the two of them ( as if our cameras did not exist). This is what we want to do all the time, we want you to feel as if we are the fly on the wall. To capture the essence of your day without being in your face. The wedding was from beginning to end filled with laughter and love. Thank you both Meg & Rob!! Love you guys !! T
This Mexico destination wedding took place at the Me Melia resort in Cabo San Lucas. Me Melia is the home of the famous Passion club. Shani contacted us about a year ago and we stayed in contact talking about her wedding!I had a chance to meet her and her mother while they were in town for a site inspection, I knew the minute I saw her that her eyes were going to be a focal point that she was going to photograph beautifully., And she did!! We enjoyed the entire day! Thank you Shani and Chris!! And a big thank you to Suzanne Morel Hair and Make up, You really make our job so much easier!! I cannot express how important professional Make up is for you wedding photos!!
This Esperanza wedding was very special to Alec and I. Cassandra and Skylar could not have been two nicer people to work with, I cannot say enough great things about them. Cassandra had a definite style, nothing flashy or over the top. From her wedding dress that just draped perfect on her perfect body, to her shoes, to the simple elegant table settings, the cocktail hours great champagne and ceviche. Everything was first class all the way. They chose to use earth tones and let the Esperanza resort and ocean be the backdrop of the wedding. Everything they did worked. Oh and the wedding bouquet!! Lily of the valley. Extremely rare for Mexico and very hard to get , It grows in cool temperatures. How did you get those fresh???? They looked like she ran outside and freshly picked them before walking down the isle ..Another perfect detail. Cassandra and Skylar we cant wait to see you sometime soon in LA!! Alec & T
Villa Bellissima is Located in Los Cabos Mexico, It is an amazing Villa that over looks the newest high end Cabo San Lucas resort Capella. Let me tell you about this amazing villa wedding!!! Anatoly and Yana contacted me from Chicago and we discussed their wedding details.They are an amazingly beautiful Russian couple as you can see. We came to an agreement that Alec and I would shoot the wedding photos and the wedding video. Anatoly told me of a entertainer ( Marat) that he would be flying in from Chicago to run the show, OK fine I said, I will talk with him to get the scoop on this Russian wedding. Hmmmm.. Well.. WOW.. All I can say is MARAT is my new hero, my MASTER of fun, my Mr. MAGICAL. I cant say enough about him!! In my life I have never experienced a wedding anything like this wedding. From shooting weddings in NYC in LA in San Diego, Seattle or Mexico City, Marat put on the best show I have ever witnessed. The wedding was non stop entertainment. Alec and I were hired to shoot the wedding until 10:00 at 12:30, we started to pack up, I didn’t want to miss a thing. The Couple Yana & Anatoly and all of their wedding guests made us feel a part of the wedding.Thank You!! I have only a few of these spectacular wedding photos ready. How could I choose from so many perfect photos. And the wedding video is going to be so much fun, I cant wait to start working on it.

Dawn and Ryan, A beautiful Esperanza wedding!! Cabo San Lucas Mexico is in my book a perfect destination wedding location. The Esperanza resort and spa is spectacular and lends itself to great photography. Dawn & Ryan contacted us last August , I was in the Pacific Northwest getting ready to give birth to our son Liam. As soon as I found out they were also from the N.W. I knew we would be a perfect match.. REAL …Alec and I have a very candid wedding photography style. We shoot your wedding as its naturally unfolding. Nothing stiff nothing contrived. Dawn had a very regal side to her that worked perfect with the sexy black and white, Ryan we just let him be and his emotion of the day lead us. I fell head over heels in love with Tatum Ryan’s daughter ( Dawns new daughter! yeah!!) her spirit was so pure and the love she had for her father was above and beyond ( so easy to capture). Ryan, Dawn and Tatum, Alec and I send our love out to you!! It was a joy to be apart of your wedding day!! Besos T
