Many of you know that I'm going to get marry at Riviera Maya, Mexico in May. Since I love photography so much, I was concerned about hiring a photographer down there or though the resort. After much debate and research on photographers, I went with the option hiring Laura Ivanova from the state and bring her down to Mexico with us. I asked myself after the wedding is over, what am I going to have left? My answer is our photos. Everything is going to fly by so quick so an investment in photography is a must for us.
Laura, is such amazing photographer to work with. I love the way she sees and captures us through her eyes. After seeing our NYC travel theme engagement photos, we couldn't have been happier with our choice and the result. I'm looking forward to my wedding shoot with her. If you're looking for a wedding photographer please check out her beautiful works on http://www.lauraivanovablog.com. I also want to thank my make-up artist Jina Yoon at JAC Beauty. She turned me into a model!

Wow, these are beautiful photos! I love the travel theme, the hair, make-up, the wardrobe. I’m in agreement with Andi, you guys have movie star looks I’ve also never been to New York, so these photos make me curious about that too. I’m really looking forward to your wedding photos!

We are so glad to read your blog; wedding photography is actually one of the main concerns that a bride has when she is planning her destination wedding; that is why is very important to find a wedding planner located in the place you have chosen so he or she must put toghether just for you all the services required. Is very important for a bride to trust in her wedding planner; we believe that being a wedding planner is much more than a job, is getting involved in a bride’s dream, making a real commitment with her and of course providing a personalized planning service making true each couple’s idea of a perfect destination wedding.
