a rainy and romantic cozumel elopement || carling+ dakota


as destination wedding photographers and filmmakers, we not only get to photograph and film some of the earth’s most beautiful locations, we are able to meet the most amazing people along the way! we have been lucky enough to shoot mexico weddings fairly often, and this gorgeous cozumel wedding is one for the books!

carling and dakota are also d.c. locals, and we actually met a couple of winters ago while shooting this fun new year’s eve inspiration shoot, which was featured on wedding chicks. they were amazing models, so when they asked us to photograph their wedding, we were beyond thrilled!

and did i mention that carling is an incredible photographer herself?! such an honor to be asked to shoot her wedding.

they were deciding between a local may wedding at a beautiful estate’s gardens or a destination wedding, and when their date aligned perfectly with a trip we already had planned to cozumel, mexico, they jumped on the opportunity. and i’m so, so glad they did!

cozumel is such a special island for our family; we have been a couple of times and love the charm of it all. there’s nothing like the cozumel snorkeling or walking to town for some fresh al pastor tacos and queso fundido (los orates has the best of both, by the way!). and don’t even get me started on the ice cream!

after celebrating the birth of their darling daughter this spring, they snuck away to cozumel to elope and for a week of relaxation and enjoyment. we met up with them on a rainy friday morning for their cozumel wedding. and although the initial plan of exchanging vows on the beach was rained out, they found the perfect overhang on the patio of a beautiful hotel and made it official!

these two have such a gorgeous little family and are handling parenthood with such ease. their love for one another is so obvious, and they looked perfect against the soft, tropical cozumel backdrop.

don’t believe me?! see for yourself!

felicidades, you two! we love you!!
