When Susana Zamos and her fiance Jovany decided to get married, they dreamt of a wedding in the middle of the ocean, but sadly their wedding planners said that this was not possible. At this point, Susana thought (halfheartedly, of course) that she would then get married like all other people on the beach. But, as they say, dreams are seen to be made into a reality, and Susana’s dream too was to become the most beautiful moment of her life, all thanks to Sol Tamargo.
When Susana and Jovany told Sol about their dream wedding idea, Sol loved the idea and simply plunged into this challenge, to make a bride’s dream come true. In a blog post on the Del Sol Photography website, Sol says that as photographers, their real job is to create epic experiences and document them.
In case of Susana, the mermaid bride, Sol Said, “The moment I met Susana it was Love at First Sight. I adore meeting authentic people who have a vision and want to do things differently, something that is crazy to most people… but not to me.” So, despite of the challenges that were to come in pulling off a wedding which was to happen in the middle of the ocean, Sol enthusiastically agreed and did her best to create an amazing wedding for the lovely couple.
The challenges were aplenty, some of them being transferring the 100+ guests to the wedding ceremony location with 2 boats and a catamaran, managing and handling the camera gear in water, managing the drone from a moving boat, and many indeed. Sol says that at times she couldn’t even see. But as Sol has always loved the water and this time she was determined to make a bride’s dream come true, she literally left no stone unturned to make everything as perfect as possible. Her dedication can be gauged from the situations that she described about the shoot. She said, “I was shooting from the boat, then I jumped into the water wearing a snorkel, mask and wetsuit and mermaid cap in the middle of a wedding!”
The wedding that took place in the El Cielo sandbar in Cozumel, Mexico had everything that a wedding should have and the photographs of this ceremony are nothing less than mesmerising to say the least.
Susana is a scuba diver and she has had a childhood where she had a pool in the backyard of her house. She says that the best days of her life have been in the water. Her dream of wanting to get married in the ocean was a very obvious one, considering her fondness for water.
Susana had thought that Sol would come with only a few people to shoot the wedding, but she was surprised when she say that there was a huge van and a big production crew just to make her day memorable. She felt like she was being shot for Hollywood or some major magazine shoot, and all this certainly left her speechless.
Even her dad loves being in the water and this moment became one of the most beautiful moments in the life of this father-daughter duo.
The couple had thought of a wedding in the water, and Sol and her team gave them a beautiful aquatic wedding, moments of which have now been captured to perfection. Take a look at some of the splendid photographs of a wedding that really looks like dreamy fairy tale.
This wedding has really been the best destination wedding we have seen in recent times, more so for the reason that a challenging dream was made into a reality for the happiness of the bride.
