I knew right away from our skype meeting that Nikki and Brian will be a lot fun to photograph! I felt even more connected to them after knowing that Brian had traveled to my hometown in Kunming, China. I was very much looking forward to their laid back and intimate destination wedding at the Azul Beach Hotel in sunny Puerto Morelos, Mexico in February of this year, especially since the winter in New Jersey has been full of snow. However the weather had other plans in mind, on the day we were suppose to leave for Cancun, Storm Pax came to town, and our flight was canceled. After almost five hours on the phone, and even considering options such as flying north to Toronto and then flying to Cancun, we finally succeeded in booking a flight out to Mexico just in time for their rehearsal dinner and wedding. The night we landed, Nikki and Brian greeted us like old friends, and quickly introduced us to their family and friends. The next day, we explored the grounds of Azul Beach Hotel for their engagement shoot. Thank you to my wonderful boyfriend, George for the assistance with the lighting and finding a way out of New Jersey when the task seemed almost impossible.
