Category Archives: Destination Weddings

Anna + Eugene

I just love tropical locations for weddings. Well, just in general really, I love tropical locations! So, I was super duper excited when Anna and Eugene contacted me about their destination wedding in Cancun Mexico. It was my first time in Cancun, and it did not disappoint! PLUS, I got to work with the amazingly talented Miss Citlalli Rico! I think what I love most about destination weddings is that only the closest people to the couple make the trek out to help them celebrate. And because of that, I find them to be filled with more emotion. Anna and Eugene had a wonderful day surrounded by family and close friends. It was my absolute pleasure and honor to have documented their day! I also loved photographing the Mayan Dance that was performed during the reception. It was so interesting! I also enjoyed grabbing a few extra shots of Anna and Eugene the day after the wedding. Many thanks to Ro, who assisted me! Congratulations Anna and Eugene!

Petul - Amazing Todd

Diane - Fabulous pictures! Really wonderful. Especially love the silhouette. So creative. :)

guatemala {part dos}

While my friend David M and I were in Guatemala shooting Kate and Ryan’s wedding, we were both blown away by our surroundings in the town of Antigua. So much so, that we we asked some of the wedding guests if they were interested in doing some free impromptu couples’ sessions. We found 2 wonderful couples who were up for it. We spent a little time with both Jenny + Jamie and then with Anni + Chris. Thanks for indulging us guys, you were all so awesome!

Bogdan - Awesome colours! And awesome work as usual :-) .

Kelsey - Gorgeous! The colors are just amazing! Beautiful work!

katrina - Sooooo sooooooo very very good!!

Guatemala {Part Uno}

This blog post is LONG overdue! A little over two years ago, I had the distinct pleasure of traveling to Guatemala with my friend David M to photograph Kate + Ryan’s wedding. During my down time I was able to stroll around the city of Antigua and see what I could find. I love this city! SO colorful, the food was amazing, and the people so interesting. One day I will get back here, I just know it. I will follow up with some wedding guest impromptu “couple sessions”, Kate and Ryan’s wedding day, and then an epic hike up an active volcano! For now, here are a few snaps from around the city of Antigua.

Anni Bruno - That’s my husband’s ankle in that shoe-shining shot! Such an amazing place. Lovely to see these!!! xoxo Anni

David Mielcarek - Aaaah…good times! So many awesome memories and beautiful work here. I remember when you were patiently waiting to take the shot of the street lamp shadow and the red wall – when the woman was walking into the frame you said “I think I clicked too soon”… and then it turned out to be just perfect. Hope to do this again one day!

Todd Laffler - Thanks David! It really was an amazing trip, I can’t wait to return one day!

Rosemary Martinez - I totally love your work remind me my country Honduras”

Jerzy Modrak - These photos remind me of my trips to Cuba and Mexico. There is nothing like Latin America for a wedding.

Karen + Erik | Part 5 {The Day After}

I have finally arrived at post number five, the last one from Karen + Erik’s off the charts amazing wedding held at The Rock House, in Jamaica. Karen and Erik’s wedding was SO incredibly memorable for SO many incredible reasons! Mostly because Karen and Erik are a special couple who are undeniably in love and obviously have fun together! But also because their friends and family were SO much fun and undeniably connected to both Karen and Erik. Not to mention the absolute eye candy that is the Rock House. Add another two world renowned photographers, Huy Nguyen and Jacklyn Greenberg, to the mix and you just have a recipe for AWESOME! So, here are some shots we took of the two love birds the day after the wedding (with the exception of a few images that were taken the day before on the actual wedding day). Karen and Erik, my sincere thanks for inviting me and entrusting me with your day of days, a heart felt congratulations to you both, and I hope we can work/play together again one day!

Karen + Erik | Part 4 {Wedding Day}

I know I’m WAY behind on blogging, but hopefully this post will make up for it! We have arrived at part 4 of Karen + Erik’s amazingly awesome wedding that took place at the jaw dropping Rock House in Jamaica. This post is all about the actual wedding day. After sifting through over 14,000 images captured between myself, Huy Nguyen (who was my second photographer) and Jacklyn Greenberg (who was my assistant/third shooter) I have narrowed it down to just 164 images! I want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in this wedding, Huy, Jacklyn, Karen and Erik and all their friends and family! I’m really proud of this wedding, and feel that it is some of my best work to date. And we still have a day after session to blog after this too. More good stuff coming soon! So please sit back, get comfy and take your time going through Karen + Erik’s wedding day.
