Leanne and Mike – Cabo San Lucas Wedding


One would think when you get asked to go to Mexico to photograph a wedding you obviously say yes! However, shooting destination weddings comes with its own set of challenges and hoops to jump through. So anytime I have been asked to travel outside of BC  I have to weigh it out and give it some thought. But, when Mike and Leanne ask you to photograph their wedding, the right answer, is YES, no matter where it is.

These two are kind, warm, and easy going. They are all about their little boy Linden, their family and have a incredibly tight knit group of friends, dating back to elementary school.

Usually when you plan a destination wedding, you realize that many of your friends and family will not be able to attend, for Mike and Leanne, it was the opposite – joining them to say “I do” was nearly 60 loved ones.

The wedding day itself, under the Cabo San Lucas skies, was warm and invigorating. After days of partying in the sun, activities, and lounging by the pool everyone pulled together for “go-time”

The girls looked stunning and the men handsome, and their son Linden, was the epitome of adorable. After  a spirited ceremony, some photographs and time for a few beverages the event moved poolside for a relaxed reception, that saw some beautiful speeches toasting these two.

Mike and Leanne, you two shone on this day. Truly though, I think this is pretty normal for you. Your charisma and sweetness, as a couple and individuals is lovely, your generosity and humour radiates. It was lovely to bear witness, not only to your incredible week, but to the love and connection you have with your people.
