Chieko & Robby | Puerto Vallarta Day-Of Session

puerto vallarta wedding

I’d never been to Mexico before, but the light in Puerto Vallarta was so amazing, and the beach at the Dreams resort was so gorgeous, that it made my already-beautiful sister and her handsome husband ridiculously easy to photograph. I did not shoot their ceremony, their reception, their cake, or their decorations. As the maid of honor, I watched Chieko walk down the aisle on our father’s arm, and watched Robby’s face shine as he recited his vows. We shot their day-of session in the thirty minutes between ceremony and dinner as the sun began to set. It was lovely and wonderful and I’m really happy for them :)
