I have known Rachel and Joel for a couple of years now and have had the opportunity to photograph them and their children on a few occasions. We always have a great time and take beautiful photographs together. When they asked me to come to Jamaica and shoot their wedding, I was more than excited! I have dreamed of going to Jamaica my whole adult life, and now I get to go with my wife and great friends to do what I love most….and do it in the sun. The whole experience was amazing and we couldn't have asked for more. The weather was beautiful, the resort was amazing, and we took advantage of every opportunity to get off the resort and go on an adventure.
The week started with a place called "The Blue Hole" that I had researched earlier before the trip. It was about a 45 minute cab ride into the countryside. We had fun the whole time. This place is amazing!
Wedding day arrived 5 days after we got there, so we were more than ready for anything at all. The whole day was amazing and I couldn't have been happier for the Bride and Groom. It all started with Rachel getting her hair and makeup done and getting ready for her "First Look" with Joel. From there, the day unfolded perfectly!
The next morning we all got up early to make sure we could get the sunrise for our "Trash the Dress" session on the beach. We were all tired and the water was a little cold first thing in the morning, but we all managed to pull it off. It took us about 1/2 hour to get the shots we wanted and then we went to breakfast. I couldn't have asked for a better day. Thanks again to Rachel and Joel for letting Nicole and I share your special day together.
