This past week Paul and I were on the island of Anguilla in the West Indies fotographing a beautiful wedding at the luxurious Viceroy Resort. We had an amazing time and can’t wait to share the images! So in anticipation of an upcoming blog post for that wedding, we’d like to share Colleen + Jay’s destination wedding that we fotographed last year at the Excellence Resort at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic!
We stayed at the resort with the couple and their family + friends, which was great for impromptu fotoshoots at the resort. Here’s our beautiful room!!!
Look! Fresh tropical fruit! We couldn’t get enough : )
My handsome fiance : )
Our lovely couple Colleen + Jay, enjoying their dinner.
The morning of the wedding….I love how they chilled together.
Jay chillin’ with his family + friends.
The beautiful, open air spa, where Colleen got ready. Paul + I visited this spa the day after the wedding for a little R&R. It was an utterly amazing experience. We opted for a couple’s massage and hydro-therapy. It was quite possibly one of the most relaxing, yet nvigorating days of my life : )
Jay’s gift to Colleen….
We love to take the dress shot to new heights…..and places.
Yes, those are flamingos in the background. Real ones. Sorry to disappoint you Robert Norman (sorry inside joke.)
And real parrots too. One of them wasn’t so friendly and broke skin when I tried to pet it. Can’t imagine why.
I LOVE freckles. I wish I had them.
Colleen with her best friend Angel. Angel was a hoot! Paul was almost beat by Angel in a beer-drinking contest during one of the night time festivities.
Jay couldn’t contain his excitement. We love that!
How awesome is this?
Colleen was escorted by her mom, who was carrying a picture of her late dad….very touching.
It was so beautiful…..including the rain that came out of nowhere. Everyone started laughing!
Look at the rain….how powerful is this image?
I love the reaction in the background!
Awesome memories! One of my favorite shots ever of a newlywed couple going down the aisle! Or is it up the aisle?
The moms : )
Stay tuned for part #2 of Colleen + Jay’s wedding! Coming soon to a blog near you ; ) Here to be exact.
