Destination weddings are a definitely a newer area of wedding photography that I am diving into and I simply LOVE IT!  Who does not love going to a new country while “ working.”  What do I love about it …. Simple… It makes me think again!  So many times I go to the same venues month after month and in time it makes me feel stale.  Yes the couples change and the vibe is different but the location is the same and for the most part the spots to shoot are the same.  I love having to walk around and scout out new locations to shoot.  I love thinking out of the box and not know what is around the corner.  I enjoy trying to find something different than I have seen on that resorts website or trying to make better what I have seen.

Ok enough about why I really enjoy shooting destination weddings… Let’s talk about this kick ass couple who had a tropical fairytale wedding. Let’s start with this… Everything ran ON TIME… you know what that means.  We had plenty of time for killer photos and no one was stressed.  Prep, first look, family and bridal party photos all went off with out a hitch.  I truly think this was because everyone was chilled and relaxed and nothing could have thrown these two off their day of love and fun.  They had fun, I had fun, everyone had fun.  The ceremony was stunning, the party was fun and unforgettable for many reasons.  For those who where there they know we were all “ Living Our Best Lives”. It was a day for the wedding books.  Steel drums playing during cocktail hour, drinks flowing, MOH breaking out some rap skills, tons of dancing, and always a hula hoop to be spotted.  I am sure Jess and Brian are looking back thinking, hell yeah we had a good wedding.  

 Groom Prep … Having fun while getting ready for his big day.
