The Dixon Destination Wedding – Playa Del Carmen, Mexico – June 24th, 2016 – Kelsie Jo Photography – Destination Wedding Photographer

Hey guys,

I have been so excited to show you the Dixon Destination Wedding!

If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that this was my first ever destination/beach wedding to photograph. I had the privilege of visiting Mexico 3 times this year, yes THREE TIMES! The 1st time was for my beach wedding in Cancun, the second was this beautiful wedding I am about to show you in Playa Del Carmen, and the last was the Wood’s destination wedding in Playa Del Carmen (that I will be blogging within the next few weeks). I have always loved traveling and it was my biggest dream to take wedding pictures on the beach..(I never dreamed my first one would be out of the country). I was so ready to build up my destination wedding portfolio so I offered these brides my photography services in trade for a 2 night stay at the resort they were staying and my flight there and back (which I am still offering for next year, with the exception of adding another person to my trip so I don’t have to travel alone and have someone to help me during the wedding). So if you are having any type of destination wedding out of the country, please contact me so we can discuss details. Not only do you save money by doing it this way (photography companies in tourist areas are ridiculously expensive) but it’s also a very safe and comforting feeling to know that your photographer is in the states and your wedding contract is in the states. Please feel free to contact me with any type of travel questions. I would love to give advice on anything for your destination wedding!

Now onto Whitney and Ryan’s big day…

I loved getting to know this couple and their family/friends. Being with a group of people that you barely know by yourself can be kind of scary, but this group was so welcoming and fun. I appreciate every single one of you for treating me like family and apart of the “group”. I hope you all love the pictures and please feel free to share this blog link on your facebook!

This young boy was watching me take pictures and decided he was going to be a photographer, too. He went and grabbed his dad’s camera out of his bag and joined me. It was pretty funny!

We went back out to the beach before sunset for more pictures…and I’m so glad we did. These are my favorite!
