I just got home from Tulum, Mexico where I was photographing a wedding, and Britton and Lex were guests at the wedding, who also happen to be engaged. Britton contacted me a few months ago asking about the possibility of shooting an engagement session for her and Lex sometime during the week at Dreams Tulum Resort. I was all for it – having been to Tulum last year, I knew the area was rich in locations. I didn’t however anticipate just how much fun it would be to photograph these two. Britton is all about photographs – a girl after my own heart. And Lex…. well, I don’t think he really knew what he was in for. He was a game for anything though, and went along with everything that was asked of him, even when Britton decided they should jump in the water fully clothed – in he went. Then, when she asked him to try to attempt an underwater kiss, he only mildly objected (“WHAT? I have to open my eyes under water??”). Attempt after attempt, they tried to master it, but it proved quite tricky. And while it wasn’t the graceful photograph we hoped for, there was a lot of laughter (for me), and water up the noses (for them). Despite Lex trying to use Brit as a life buoy, we ended up with some great photographs and great memories of the two of them from their trip to Tulum. Britton and Lex, it was so much fun getting to know the two of you, and congratulations on your engagement! Knowing your personalities, I have no doubt your own Mexico wedding will be a celebration of grand proportions!
