What a wild ride this one was! Three years ago I started seriously looking into becoming a wedding photographer. I’d been shooting for about 10 years just for fun, taking portraits of my friends and photographing the landscape of all the new places that I moved to. I found Christina DeVictor’s work on Someplace Wild and I reached out to her immediately, I was so enamored by her beautiful work. Her response was so kind and heartfelt that it stuck with me all these years later as a reflection of how I’d like to react to other photographers in the industry. It’s all about community, not competition after all!
But imagine my freaking surprise all these years later, after a few tries of attempting to meet up, to run into Christina and Tony in Tulum, Quintana Roo, México of all places! We woke up before dawn and drove down to the Mayan Ruins in Tulum right on the beach to catch the sunrise. We finally had a chance and had an amazing heart to heart. Everything about this day was pure magic.
