Gran Bahia Principe Akumal Destination Wedding | Cynthia and Nguyen

Gran Bahia Principe Akumal Destination Wedding | Cynthia and Nguyen


I just got back from photographing an amazing destination wedding with Cynthia and Nguyen at the amazing Gran Bahia Principe Akumal resort in Riveria Maya Mexico. First let me describe this enormous resort. The Gran Bahia Principe Akumal Resort south of Puerto Morelos has several adjoining resorts all connecting to one other on the beach about 10 miles north of Tulum. You have a choice in choosing your resort from Akumal, Tulum, Sian Ka’an and Coba properties. Together these resorts take up over a mile of gorgeous white sand beach along the Caribbean Sea. Each has it’s own set of Restaurants, Bars, Pools and Entertainment. The best part is since it’s an all-inclusive resort, you can hop from each property and enjoy all that each resort has to offer.

I arrived the day before their wedding and scoped out the property for ideas to shoot an hour before it was time to meet them for the first time. We met in the hotel lobby and soon we were joined by their entire wedding party which was great. So I took them on my tour and I started shooting a few casual and fun candids of their friends and family which was a great ice breaker. Walking the property I kept getting inspired with ideas I wanted to try and we just rolled with it.
