Xunantunich Wedding Photo Shoot
Xunantunich Wedding Photo Shoot in Cayo, Belize. Couple visited San Pedro, Belize as a pre-honeymoon and decided to take wedding photos at Xunantunich and San Pedro. They did this photo shoot so that they can have the photos displayed during their wedding reception which was on New Years Eve 2014.
We started early since we have to take a flight from San Pedro to Belize City, The flight is approximately 25 minutes then we take a drive to San Ignacio which is approximately 90-120 minutes from Belize City. Once we arrived, Torre & Samantha changed into their wedding attire. After taking some photos, we grabbed some to-go lunch to make it back in time to do some more photos in San Pedro Town.
Torre & Samantha were very down to earth and LOVED everything about San Pedro and San Igancio. They loved the culture and were willing to try the local restaurant and bars to get an even better Belize experience.
Here is what Samantha sent me after I delivered their photos.
There are good photographers, there are great photographers and there are artists. Jose Luis Zapata is truly an artist. He has such an amazing eye and truly sees the world differently. We call ourselves lucky to have found him and honored to have shot with him. We receive numerous compliments DAILY on our wedding photos, with the most coming from social media from other wedding photographers. He is an innovator and inspires other photographers from around the world, and we had the privilege of working with him.
We will never forget the experience of hiking ancient Mayan Ruins in wedding attire, and were speechless when we received our photos. He completely captured US in his work, sexy, edgy, unique…these photos look like they should be in a magazine, not just sitting in frames in our home!
Jose Luis Zapata managed to capture irreplaceable moments in time, and for that, we are forever grateful. He didn’t just give us wedding photos, he gave us life everlasting memories.
