Honeymoon in Cancun and adventure in the Riviera Maya, Canadian newlyweds got married in Toronto before flying south to start their lives together as husband and wife. Rachel and Don joined photographer Debora in the jungle of the Riviera Maya for a trash the dress adventure. With her long flowing hair and lacy gown, Rachel was a gorgeous mermaid bride and her groom was totally hip in his Converse sneaks and casual attire. The shoot began in the jungle, capturing the elegance of the couple against the natural backdrop of the lush greenery of the Yucatan Peninsula. The tenderness between Rachel and Don was charming, their love for one another is totally evident in their soft touches and smiles. The day continued in the cool waters of the cenote, with an audience of locals cheering them on the newlyweds explored the underwater world in some really incredible light, the colors shining through were almost psychedelic, pink and purple, blue and yellow.
When we asked Rachel why they chose Del Sol Photography, here is what she shared with us:
Your photos, especially ‘Trash the Dress’ photos are amazing! It was breathtaking when I first saw it! I think it’s like a treasure that you should shoot underwater once in your lifetime! Love your Cenote underwater photos.
Photographer Debora led the expedition and captured all the great moments, please be sure to see the whole slideshow. Del Sol Photography would like to thank Rachel and Don for joining us and working so hard to get these great shots. We wish you both a long and happy life together!
