Rita’s surprise birthday session at Banyan Tree Mayakoba was a treat for both her and us! Rita is a long time friend of Del Sol Photography, our relationship goes all the way back to 2006 when we covered an amazing wedding over 2 days in Athens, Georgia. Rita still manages her wedding planning agency in Georgia, Ribha, specializing in organizing and coordinating epic, elaborately designed Hindu weddings.
The girls getaway to the Riviera Maya was a luxurious escape for these six lovely ladies and it was such a pleasure to capture their beauty and friendship! The Banyan Tree Mayakoba is one of the most exclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya, famous for world-class elegance in a protected natural environment.
The Banyan Tree is perfect for photography sessions with its tranquil setting in the midst of the rivers, lagoons, mangroves and jungle. With Mexican and Asian fusion architecture and decor, the hotel is a feast for the eyes and treasure trove of exotic art and rich details.
Friendship is nourishment for the soul. I met Rita 10 years ago when I shot an Indian wedding she had coordinated. She came to the Riviera Maya with her beautiful friends to celebrate a birthday,it was pure joy, beauty and good times. I love being a woman, love photographing our kind and Rita and her friends were a spark of happiness that made the whole Banyan Tree light with joy! – Sol
