We have been anxiously waiting for this wedding for a little over a year. This was a little extra special since Christina is my cousin on my mothers side. I have seen Christina grow up into a beautiful, dedicated young woman. I remember her telling me stories of how she met Luis, since the beginning I always had such a good feeling about him. Luis is hardworking, dedicated, and a family man with good values and morals. It took some time for Christina to win him over, but she did, and look at them now.
Luis proposed on Christmas 2015. Since they were engaged, Christina did not miss a beat. She scheduled their first engagement session within two months. Although I have known them (as a couple) for sometime now, it took my first session with them to see their genuine love for each other. It makes me so happy to see Luis bring out such a wonderful side of Christina. They are good for each other, they balance each other, and as Luis quoted, "she keeps me on my toes". When we shot their engagement session, we were blown away. They photographed so nicely, and their love exuded in the photos.
Fast forward to the last weekend of 2016. It was NYE, in Mexico, and not really knowing where we were going. My team, and I were excited yet nervous. Christina was stressed, it was her wedding day, and it rained. Not only did it rain, but it poured all night long. However, once the ceremony was finalized, you can see how much fun this wedding was. Not only was their connection in front of the camera unbelievable, but their connection with each other all day was amazing. They did what we asked all day, with a big smile on their face. Luis was so attentive to his family and friends, he really impressed us on how composed he kept himself. Luis, thank you for loving my younger cousin the way you do! Christy, I love you & you made a beautiful bride. We are so excited to share some of our favorites with you today!!

Christina and Luis, we are so thankful that we were apart of not only capturing your union, but that you chose us to be a part of such a special day in your lives. Thank you from the bottom of our lens for choosing us. We know there are so many vendors to choose from, so THANK YOU!! We love you both so much, and this will always go down as the best "end of the 2016 year" wedding. Enjoy your new journey as husband and wife, welcome to the married club!!!
