This Riviera Maya cenote and beach trash the dress was a day full of laughter and fun. Newlyweds Hilary and Josh are avid travelers and adventure seekers, they love to kayak, hike, bike and explore so we were eager to meet them and introduce them to the natural world of the Riviera Maya. They joined photographer Polly in the jungle for portraits in the lush flora of the region. Hilary was soft and pretty in her pink gown, her jewelry sparkled (love her bracelet and the peep toe shoes!). Josh started off the day in a handsome suit and pink tie, a great complement to his bride.

The trash the dress adventure continued in the cool waters of the cenote, the sun streaming in to the underwater world and creating magic! Hilary and Josh were so loving with one another and Polly captured each moment of tenderness. The shoot continued at a nearby beach as the afternoon sun began to set. Hilary changed into elegant pink and black lingerie, a soft and sensual look for playing in the sand and waves with Josh. The newlyweds embraced, kissed and shared a lot of laughs, such a pleasure to work with this energetic couple in love.

I think we spent the whole day laughing with Hilary and Josh! They both have a great sense of humor, loads of energy and a really beautiful connection between them. When we got to the beach we sent them to play and they just went for it, although there was some debate about how much sand on the body is sexy: ie massive handful of sand on the head NOT, thank you Josh!! – Polly

Photographer Polly captured all the amor, please be sure to see the whole slideshow. Del Sol Photography thanks Hilary and Josh for inviting us to share in this trash the dress adventure, we wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
