Cenote Playa Del Carmen: Robert & Irina

Couple: Robert & Irina

The perfect proposal should be memorable and should be personalised, reflecting the couple’s interests or personalities. Since Irina and Robert started dating, they chose Mexico as their favourite destination and were coming down to Riviera Maya at least once a year for vacations. Both are energetic, adventurous and romantic-they love nature and aquatic sports. On every vacation, they were contacting photographers for their couple photo session, and this time they booked with us for their underwater photo session in a cenote of the Mayan Riviera.

Robert planned his original proposal perfectly – he had the ring, he had the love of his life, and great photographers to document these moments. We usually begin our underwater photo sessions with a small romantic photo session near the water,  and that’s what we did this time.  That was the moment that Robert chose to propose to Irina standing on one knee. Tears were flowing when she said “yes” and their joy was so strong that during the entire underwater photo session we could see smiles on their faces! Documenting this kind of thing makes us crazy-happy as these moments are real and absolutely beautiful! We really have the best job in the world. ~ Genya + Erik Shenko Photography
