try as we did, the morning-sunrise-trash-the-dress idea, as beautiful as it sounds in theory just didn’t fly. the sun rises too early! (erika and robbie agreed, these are my kind of people). so instead, we opted for an evening trash the dress and the photos turned out even better than we could have planned anyway.
dru and i are still in the stages of sorting through everything (4500 images later, hello) but i couldn’t help taking a break from the wedding day photos this afternoon to have a sneak through these. hope you like!
ps: the outtake is still making me nauseous. or proud. or nauseous. the camera only got a little wet though ; )
i legitimately can’t say enough good about our trip. the sun, the heat, the beach. the food, the people, the wedding, the wedding party. to say i’m lucky to do what i do is an extremely large understatement.
jamaica, it was unreal!
I’m going to go out on a limb and say photographing a wedding like Kev & Holly’s is why I enjoy what I do. Now, I’ll totally admit I’ve done a few weddings in which afterwards, I thought the only way I would feel better would be by packing up my camera (lenses and all), putting everything in a bag, and launching it onto the side of a road next a cardboard sign saying “free” haphazardly propped up somewhere in it’s vicinity… My dues have definitely been paid on a few fronts. So when the day goes as fun as these two’s did, and you end up tearing it up (eyes wise and dance floor wise I might add) I can’t help but be genuinely jacked. There might be a bit of a negative “air” that blows around to admitting I am in fact a wedding photographer, but come on. Who else gets to hang out with people on one of the happiest days of their lives? That’s a lot of happy when the weddings start piling up!
You can’t really beat that.
After finishing up Joanne & Daniel’s wedding editing this past week I stumbled across another favorite when I found this shot! I actually split toned it, and I was really happy with the effect when I added a pink tinge to the highlights and another warm hue to the shadows.
