Cancun Destination Wedding Photographer at the Royalton Riviera Maya
I love Chicago, but I’m sorry, I will trade the cold winter days of January for the warm beaches of Cancun any day! So I was beyond excited to travel down to Cancun to be Nancy + Matt’s destination wedding photographer! The morning I left Chicago, there was icy rain hitting the roads…and when I landed, I was ready to put on my shorts and sunglasses! If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out Nancy + Matt’s Chicago Riverwalk Engagement Photos!
Be sure to scroll down to read more and see more photos from their epic Cancun destination wedding! As their destination wedding photographer, I wanted to give you a sense of place with this first wedding picture! You can see the palm trees and the beautiful Royalton Riviera Cancun beach!
The Royalton Riviera Cancun has a cute little structure for wedding ceremonies – and it makes for a great spot for wedding photos! Photographer’s Tip: Be sure to notice leading lines and geometric shapes!
It’s only fitting that I choose a photo from their first dance as one of my “Photographer’s Favs” – their first date was salsa dancing! And yes, they are having their reception on the beach!

One thing I love about these two: They know how to laugh and have a good time! Those that know them know what I am talking about! And the perfectly blue-green ocean behind them is pretty amazing too!

This might be one of the best moments photographed all day! Great job officiating Kav!
Ricardo changed up Nancy’s hair for the reception! Also made for a different look in her wedding photos!

These two have some crazy dancing skills!
Have to include a couple photos of my friends in attendance – We spent more time together at the buffet than at the beach! Sorry Kav, you were in a whole bunch of photos during the ceremony! =)

Nancy + Matt: Thank you for having me as your photographer for your destination wedding! It was such a great time and we captured some amazing photos! If only we could just live there for a couple months each year!
