Alissa + Ross | Cabo San Lucas Wedding Photos | Sandos Finisterra

April 5, 2016

At long last I have more Cabo San Lucas wedding photos to share with you!  Alissa and Ross had a gorgeous destination wedding on the warm beaches of Mexico in 2015.  I have known Alissa for nearly twenty years, and she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet.  Ross is a really wonderful guy too, so I can see why they are such a perfect match 🙂  Alissa and I reconnected on Facebook years ago, and I had the privilege of photographing her a few times prior to their wedding as well.  I was so excited to hear that they were engaged, and beyond honored when asked to capture their destination wedding photos for them!  Alissa knew that I had photographed a wedding in 2014 in Los Cabos, so she asked me for a hotel recommendation once they had decided that would be the location of their wedding.  I quickly recommended the Dreams Los Cabos resort, because I thought it was such a wonderful spot for a Mexico beach wedding.  Alissa and Ross booked with Dreams, and I was so excited to be shooting another wedding there.  Then, not too long before the wedding, they were informed that Dreams was still under construction, and they were not able to accommodate their wedding any longer.  Ahhhhh…but not to panic!  Gold Key Travel to the rescue to find them a replacement resort!  The new venue was Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos and it was an equally gorgeous, 5-star, all-inclusive resort.

I am so glad that we arrived a day early (especially with a “new to me” venue)…this gave me and my husband, Derek, some time to do some exploring to locate some great photo locations on the property.  Derek has shot 7 (give or take) weddings with me now, so I knew that he would do a great job as my second shooter for this destination wedding.  Not only was this wedding memorable because Derek was by my side, but also because friends were getting married, and other friends were in attendance 🙂  It was so wonderful to see Alissa share this very special day with her daughters, and to see how much love they share for Ross!
