Mata Chica Resort Beach Wedding | Sand, Sea, & Romance

John and Sabrina were a fun couple, very romantic, and passionate.  Their intense love for each other even brought a tropical wave to our island.  Well not really, that was already on its way but that did not stop the elopers from saying “I DO” on the beach at Mata Chica Resort.

Here are a few words that John & Sabrina shared with me for my testimonials page:

Our wedding was just the two of us and the photos were so very important to us since this is how we’d be sharing our wedding with our family and friends. We’d describe ourselves as a head over heels for each other, fun-loving, adventurous, and playful couple and we really wanted that to show in our wedding day photos. Jose Luis had no problems jumping in and photographing our silliness!

Our wedding day consisted of hot sun, wind and rain all in the span of three hours. Jose Luis worked with the weather and we have some stunning shots. When it was pouring we went inside our casita and he took some passion shots of us in our robes on the bed. They are gorgeous and we can’t wait to frame them for our bedroom.

By far his last shot of the night was the most spectacular, the storm had died down, we went back outside and the rain left the dock glistening. In the glow of the moonlight and the resort lights he took the most stunning photo and everyone we show it to comments that it looks like it came out of a magazine.

We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer than Jose Luis. Before, during and after our session he was attentive and enthusiastic. We highly recommend him!

The witnesses.  You need two witnesses when getting married in Belize.  If you are elopers, you can always ask some guests to do you the favor.
