Deniz + Khoa

Having spent a few days in Istanbul with Deniz and Khoa for their engagement session, we headed to Turks and Caicos eager to witness two new friends tie the knot. Our bonding time in Turkey had allowed us to learn a lot about these two, especially about their friends and families, who they love so deeply. In fact, it was their friends and families who they had in mind while choosing the location of their wedding. They knew they wanted a destination wedding, but a location that would provide ample activities for the grown-ups, but also a good time for the young kids. As Deniz put it, a place that was "not just kid-friendly, but kid-oriented." Naturally, the Beaches resort, with its on-site waterpark, was an obvious choice! It is this sort of thoughtfulness that we have witnessed from Deniz and Khoa from our very first meeting, when they brought homemade treats for our little dog, Coco. It comes to no surprise, therefore, that their friends and families are a tight little bunch, with a whole lot of love flowing through. Both families have embraced each other and each other's cultures (Deniz is Turkish and Khoa is Vietnamese), and, simply put, it is just a beautiful thing to see.

Deniz and Khoa, it goes without saying that we are thrilled to have you in our lives and to call you friends. We are so grateful that you found us and choose us to capture your beautiful wedding in paradise.

Christine + Vikram

Laughter. That is Christine and Vik's 3 day wedding celebration in Mexico summed up in one word. Nothing, not even when a rainy sky pushed their beach reception into one of the resort's restaurants, could stop these two from having a good time. In fact, after a very wet Indian ceremony, they just took a dip in the pool, with Christine still in her very heavy sari. The beautiful Dreams Riviera in Cancun played host to the multi-day affair, from the Vatna, where their enthusiastic guests smeared Vik with turmeric paste (mustard also found it's way in there), to the Baraat, where Vik made his grand entrance on a horse. From start to finish, this wedding was an absolutely joy. We broke our record for the most photos we've ever taken and had the time of our lives.

The day after their wedding day (after Christine and Vik generously sent us to the spa for massages), we took a rocky ferry ride to Isla Mujeres for some portraits. We had suggested this location for its local Mexican feel, rocky cliffs, and proximity to Cancun, but having never been there ourselves, we were crossing our fingers that this location would be worth the trip... and it most certainly was!

Christine and Vik, we are so happy to have had the pleasure of documenting your epic wedding. We look forward to travelling to India with you sometime in the next few years!
