Playa del Carmen Engagement Portraits – Therese and Shiraan

We snatched Therese and Shiran away from their pre-wedding venue visit for a beach portrait session. The rain had been absolutely HAMMERING down in the hours before, but stopped to leave us with empty beaches, an eye-popping turquoise ocean and rich blue skies. Therese’s little red dress added the final splash of color.

“The photographs are AMAZING… we absolutely love them! Thanks so much to Martina and Polly for braving the monsoon, they were such a pleasure to work with!” – Therese + Shiraan

Playa del Carmen is a great location for a portrait session as we have access to a Mayan ruins site just opposite a beautiful beach. The ruins were the launching point to Cozumel for Mayan women making the annual pilgrimage to honer the goddess Ixchel during 1200 AD to 1526 AD, post-classic period.

We love the contrast and beautiful colors the rain gives us! For more reasons to embrace weird weather check out our post why rain on your wedding day is awesome!
