Destination weddings have a funny way of making everyone feel like family.

Destination weddings have a funny way of making everyone feel like family within the first 24 hours of arrival, even the photographer. A few weeks ago I traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, FL to witness the union between Jamar and Tiffany. The wedding took place on the Allure of the Sea’s cruise ship and everything HAD to run on time to accommodate the 4pm departure time. Now my previous experience with weddings told me that this could be a disaster as I’ve discovered that weddings almost never run on time…but for some reason this wedding seemed different. Because I had my “gameface” on during the wedding I couldn’t see what was so different about this wedding…but as I sat on down on the plane home I realized that this was an unbelievable collaborative effort by everyone in attendance. I mean I saw bridesmaids turn into hair stylist on the spot! I saw groomsmen turn into baggage handlers for 20+ bags at the drop of a hat…And when the A/C on the bus wasn’t working properly one guest even used his passport as a air deflector to make sure the bride was cool for her big day (photo below) ;-) . It was truly an amazing experience to be apart of. There is nothing like being around people who are genuinely around you to celebrate your happiest. Besides the 94 degree heat and the 88% humidity, I must say Florida treated us well. The love that these two families share is truly a blessing and I am honored to be the one who capture it all. Congratulations you two! :-)

Being a photographer I can always appreciate great lighting! Great lighting allows you to create the environment for whatever mood you’d like. Given that the groom is a professional sound and lighting technician, he made sure that this event would be visually breathtaking and that it was! The blues, the greens, the purples, the pinks…I mean it was perfect! It was a perfect set to fall in love, or in Justin and Jeannice case, to solidify love. From the great lighting to the surprise bridesmaids dance to Beyonce, this was a wedding for the ages and I am honored to have shared in there memories. Congratulations Justin and Jeannice!

What a start to the 2014 wedding season! A few week ago Darryl and Carmen decided to travel from Southern California to tie the knot at the El San Juan Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We spent a good amount of leisure time on the beach, shopping, and salsa dancing the night away in Old Towne San Juan. After the events leading up to the actual wedding we all prepared ourselves for the party of the year. This was a small intimate wedding full of close family and friends who were ready to witness love by day and dance all night. It’s always great when great friends come together to celebrate people! Congratulations Darryl & Carmen Eaton! I had a great time capturing your wedding and I am honored to call you both friends. :-)
