I was really excited to be able to shoot these trash the dress shots of an old friend from Vancouver. We shot them in a Mayan cenote a few weeks ago. Lindsey and Nel came down to Mexico for their wedding and a couple of days later, we headed down the coast to a secret cenote to get wet for their trash the dress session. Mayan’s believe that all cenotes are sacred and every time I shoot in one of them I’m inclined to agree!

Something magical happens every time I photograph in a Mayan cenote and this shoot with Lindsey and Nel was no exception. It was also great to have a bride in the water in a short dress for a change. It made for some slightly different images. Something about Lindsey in this short dress is like looking at a water sprite or something…so magical. After the shoot, we all stopped off the road for some of the most incredible tacos known to man. In general, it was just a really fun day.
