Theme for week 5 “Splash of Complimentary Color.”
Last week my family took a break from our busy lives and went to spend a wonderful and relaxing week together on the beaches of Jamaica. I love Jamaica…the people of Jamaica and the beautiful flowers that are seen all over this tropical island. I’m not sure what these particular ones are called but my favorite color is yellow and I found them growing near our hotel and just had to capture them.
Theme for week 6 “Passion.”
True Passion…getting married on a beach in Jamaica. While on vacation in Jamaica I was a 2nd shooter for a wedding. What an wonderful experience doing a destination wedding on a tropical island…and I was wearing my bikini during the entire ceremony! Now that’s a first!! You must read on.
I met Ashley and Tige at the pool a few days before their wedding and we chatted about how they planned their wedding just a week and a half before coming to Jamaica. We also chatted about photography and details of their special day and the photographer they were using for their ceremony. They hired the resort photographer for one hour to capture the ceremony and a few formal photos afterwards. I told them if I was available I would stop by and take some photos for them and that’s exactly what I did…I just didn’t get time to grab a cover up and they didn’t mind me in my bikini one bit…too funny. I felt a bit funny about it but it surely didn’t stop me from capturing moments that will last them a lifetime.
I truly enjoyed watching the ceremony and it was quite fun and stress free since it was such a last minute decision….at least for me! I captured some very precious moments for them and I know they will be quite pleased. I could get into destination weddings. Perhaps I’ll have to start thinking about doing them…let me know if you’re planning a wedding on a tropical island….I could be for hire!
