We are always talking about the incredible opportunity to connect with people thru social media. We have made it a beloved practice to collaborate with local innovators while travelling and it has been seriously inspiring, heart warming and super fun to meet some really talented and genuine creators around the world. When we reached out to Moni of Moni + Adri Photography to ask about collaborating during our latest trip to Playa del Carmen, we had no idea what would come of the attempt at connection. It turned out that not only was she a amazing photographer, she was also wonderfully sweet and a totally driven business woman. While photographing weddings nearly every day we were in Mexico, Moni made the time to connect with us and from our first interactions, we were blown away by her open and friendly vibe. We excitedly talked about all the possibilities, locations and inspirations and were pleasantly surprised to hear about her newest venture, a destination wedding vlog called Sail the Veil. She wanted to incorporate an interview with us /// SEE BELOW!!! /// all about destination wedding hair and makeup during our shoot! WOW!!! Now our original ideas were not only coming to life, we also got an unexpected video interview and a bunch of awesome tips from Moni of others to bring on board for the shoot. On her recommendation we reached out the the impeccably modern Andaz Mayakoba who graciously agreed to have us shoot on their gorgeous resort. For florals Moni suggested the wildly talented Vanessa Jaimes for florals. The shoot came together even more perfect that we could have dreamed, creating incredible imagery and making awesome new friends and we love we got the chance to share all our best destination wedding hair and makeup tips and products!
