Calgary Wedding Photographer: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I got to Puerto Vallarta for my destination wedding when it was already dark so I could barely see what was around me, but I knew one thing right from the getgo - once I stepped into the hot and humid air outside of the airport I realized I loved this place. Fo real. I felt like I was bathing in the air and it felt so good...I did a bit of a research before I came so when one of the taxi drivers offered a ride to the hotel I knew I wasn't overpaying. Plus I got a little bit of a tour on the way to me destination...heehee.:)

Me: How far is the hotel?
Taxi Driver: 10 mexican minutes away, senorita! /how cute is that?! 10 mexican minutes! :))/

My amazing bride Kaytlin met me at the lobby and we had a late supper with her and her friend - good times, good food...:)

This was the view from my room when I woke up in the morning...GORGEOUS!!

I actually ventured to the local Walmart as there was a flee market nearby, I wanted to check out local goods. And yes, I walked to Walmart aka risked being run over by crazy drivers (which reminded me of Russia a little, nostalgia!)...:) It was lots of fun to walk though as I did see more than if I was going on the bus or in a cab, for sure.

Wow, wow, wow. I really love the cobblestone shot. You've come such a long way in your photography and I think your stuff is amazing.

I am your biggest fan! xoxox Tricia

Nice shots. I got a chuckle out of the crossing light. It looked like an icon of a sprinter. Does this say something about the drivers?

Jeff said...
