Any time I photograph a destination wedding, I make sure to do a pre-wedding shoot with the couple to make sure we properly showcase the city where they're getting married. It's often my first time working with the couple, so I also am trying to find out who they are and what makes them look and feel their best. With Joe and Hannah, that all happened so naturally. Five minutes after meeting them in Tulum, it felt like we'd been friends for 10 years. We explored the streets and buildings that brought them there, ending up at Coqui Coqui, an impossibly gorgeous boutique hotel and perfumerie on the ocean. The whole day was a perfect example of why pre-wedding shoots can be so meaningful.
