Cristin & Jon – Day-After Session in Mexico

Riu Palace · Playa del Carmen, Mx

One of my favorite events during a destination wedding is the day-after portrait session. Even the most relaxed, beachfront destination wedding involves some stress, so I love when my couples come out the next day (or sometimes the day before) for some additional portraits. It’s the best way to take advantage of a beautiful destination’s scenery without having to worry about wedding day stress.
Another advantage to the day-after portrait session is that there are typically far fewer people interrupting the photos. Often times, weddings are held on Fridays or Saturdays when most people are out and about. Electing for day-after portraits, whether in your wedding dress or casual clothes, provides the opportunity to utilize backdrops that might otherwise be overrun by people.

Here are a few images from Cristin & Jon’s day-after portrait session in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We spent some time meandering around the grounds of the Riu Palace Riviera Maya before heading down to the ocean for some beachfront portraits.
