When a couple asks you to go with them to Jamaica for their wedding you say “Absolutely YES!!!” We’d met Jessica and Wes on their trip to Vegas where we photographed their session at The Neon Museum and Downtown Vegas. They felt like old friends from day 1. You can imagine my excitement when I got a call from Jessica asking if we could go to Jamaica for their destination wedding with their closest friends and family! I was pretty much packing my bags, while replying! lol In all seriousness, though, it’s been amazing to travel for weddings and we absolutely love being a part of something so special as our couple’s destination wedding.

On the day of the wedding, I met up with Jessica and Wes while they were still getting ready in their suite at the gorgeous Sandals Ochi Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Again, their warmth and sweet personalities really made me feel so welcome and it was like I was their with good friends!

Although it was humid and it was a rainy morning, the rain stopped just in time for them to have their first look and some portraits before heading to the chapel! We couldn’t have been happier for the change of weather!

The resort chapel was breathtaking at the end of the pier and with it’s glass floor aisle and panoramic water views! Not only was the location dreamy, but Jessica’s dad performed their ceremony and it was truly beautiful, full of personal vows, happy tears, and love for days!

After their ceremony, we went into family and group shots before moving into more portraits of the newlyweds. Then, we moved over to their reception overlooking the ocean. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest, Jessica and Wes had the Jamaican destination wedding of their dreams and I couldn’t be more excited to finally share a few of my favorites today on the blog!

If you are planning a destination wedding, we’d love to join you and capture your amazing day too! We love traveling to weddings so much that we don’t charge travel fees to a lot of popular destinations and when we do charge a travel fee, they are minimal! Let’s chat soon! XO

Lowri and Jonathan came all the way from England to get married at the El Dorado Dry Lake, just 45 minutes outside Las Vegas. They were super sweet and just so happy to be together getting married on their terms. They had a lovely and meaningful ceremony performed by our favorite, Peachy Keen Unions! Afterwards we just let the two of them take it all in!! There was lots of love + laughter, and even some dancing to their favorite song! It was exactly what they wanted and we couldn’t be happier to have shared it with them.

So, it’s not your anniversary, wedding, or engagement, but you still want and maybe even need some new photos of you and your love together. Well, let me introduce you to our “Date Night” Photography sessions! These sessions can be 30 minutes to an hour and can be held at a favorite spot of yours or just someplace with pretty scenery! We’ll discuss the details and chat until we find the perfect spot. We meet up and do our thing! We’ll work on getting you two to relax and just enjoy the process! It’s fun and a great way for the two of you to connect and really make some magic! Afterwards, I recommend you keep the fun going and go out and have a great night together! You’re already dressed up and ready to go!

This is exactly what Amy and Ryan did! Ryan was being deployed in just a few days and Amy thought it would be great to have some updated photos of the two of them together before his send off. I couldn’t have agreed more!

Having been married for just under 2 years, these two were absolute sweethearts! They have such great chemistry and are so in love! It was so fun chatting with them and learning they lived in Maryland, the state where I grew up!

Amy + Ryan: I sure hope this deployment goes by super quickly and you guys are back in each other’s arms before you know it! XO
