Anna & Don: Fine Art Boho Wedding Cancun to Tulum


Don was a groomsman in Tanner and Kelsey’s wedding a few years ago. Lucky for me, when he and Anna decided it was time to get some engagement photos in Des Moines in preparation for their Mexico wedding, they thought of me.

I started talking to Anna and saw I was in the midst of planning a very stylish shoot at a state park. Anna knew all the details she needed to be thinking about before I even said them. Lashes, flowing gowns, complimentary colors and perfect lighting. I was thinking to myself, “who is this girl?!”

A few months later, she delivered. She came to the shoot with the two most PERFECT dresses and I learned about an online shop called VICI that has since earned more of my money than I have. If you’re prepping for a shoot with me, I strongly encourage you to check out their beautiful and so so so affordable gowns. They’re lovely and a perfect match for engagement photos.

Ann and Don showed up to their Ledges State Park engagement session ready to Rock. The. Show. But I’m going to send you over to that blog post to read more about that. :) This is a about Mexico.

When we were done working with each other in Des Moines, we realized we spent the whole shoot talking about the details of their upcoming wedding in Mexico. Whaaaat?! Mexico? Have you seen the sunshine and light there?! A few weeks after the engagement shoot, Anna asked if I’d be up for something like shooting a tropical destination wedding in Mexico. Yup, mmmhmm, um yaa!!

And off we went. Anna planned the most gorgeous, detailed, simple, beautiful wedding in Mexico at the Royalton Riviera Cancun. Her attention to style and design were so spot on I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I literally think she opened up the resort to a new style of floral arrangement and they executed on that design perfectly. So in love with her details…and her hair? She dreamt the style and wham, made that happen to. These two lovely humans and their handsome two boys are the type of people everyone needs in their life. The love they have for each other, their families, and their boys is something to be admired. Anna and Don, I have so much respect for you guys, you don’t even know.
