Cabo San Lucas

It's hard to believe that three weeks ago tomorrow we were hopping on a plane to Cabo for our friends' wedding. We stayed at the RIU Palace for 7 nights and it was fabulous. Kaydence stayed back home with her grandparents and had a little vacation of her own...I know she was in heaven. We were able to Skype everyday, which was amazing and definitely helped our bouts of missing her.

I didn't take my DSLR because a) I didn't want to have to worry about it getting stolen, or b) feeling obligated to take photos and feeling guilty if I didn't feel like it (some of my photo friends probably know what I mean). So alas, my DSLR never got to smell that salty air...poor thing. Believe it or not, I don't even have a p&s anymore, so I had to borrow one from my parents. But, ironically enough, this "photo nerd" actually forgot the p&s in our room the day of the wedding...ugh! :-( So I have zero images from the wedding itself...so sad! But there were plenty of people documenting the day for our friends.

The resort was absolutely beautiful and we had such a wonderful and relaxing time. This place was so "picture perfect" so it was hard for my to narrow down my favorites...sorry in advance for the massive share.

An excursion on a "glass bottom" boat...the boat itself was nothing to write home about (lol), but the views/beaches were breathtaking!

I would have never guessed that you didn't use your DSLR for these. You are truly a fabulous photographer!

Looks like you had a wonderful time - it was on our list of places to go for our Honeymoon. We went to St. Maarten instead. I hope to go to Cabo another time.

I love these pictures that you used a P&S for. They are awesome. I have been reading your blog for a while now and am curious... do you use certain presets or do did you make your own? I love the style of your pictures and was just curious. Thanks!!

thank you so much everyone! i <3 you all! xoxo

Lauren -- thank you so much for following...I always love hearing from my readers. :-) To answer your questions, I do a bit of my own edits as well as using some actions sometimes too. When using actions though, I usually end up doing my own tweaking. For these photos, I think I used a couple tweaked actions from the Eye Candy Vintage Road set. :-)
