Aruba Wedding Published in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine

The day I met with Ary & Marco, I knew that we would be a perfect fit.

The day I met with Ary & Marco, I knew that we would be a perfect fit. Ary, with her beautiful smile & kind heart was going to be a beautiful bride and Marco’s friendly & warm personality made you like him immediately. After our initial meeting, I think Ary was disappointed because my commissioning rate was a bit out of their budget. But Marco, being the romantic guy he is, contacted me and wanted to surprise Ary by hiring me as their wedding photographer. So he had me come over one evening when Ary was at home sitting comfortably in her living room couch watching TV (in her pajamas!). Boy was she surprised and happy to see me. After that surprise, I could not wait for their wedding day to happen. Everything about this wedding was a dream come true. Wedding in Aruba with tropical climate and gorgeous environment, surrounded by close family and friends… what more can a couple ask for? Marco and Ary also LOVED the video work of Chris & Oliver Cinema so we went down to the Caribbean as a photo/video team. Immediately, we felt like we were part of the family. It must be the Puerto Rican culture but everyone was so nice and inviting. I even got to spend some time with them on a pre-wedding snorkeling trip.

I wanted to blog about this shortly after their wedding, but I had a funny feeling that this might be a wedding that could get published. So I held off for awhile and thankfully the wonderful staff at Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine decided to publish this in their “I Do, I Do” section. Well, just like Ary, I got a surprise of my own when they selected one of Ary & Marco’s images from their wedding as the COVER of that issue! What a surprise and honor this was! So I waited patiently until July rolled around before I could publish this. Well, needless to say, it is now August and I am finally blogging about this exciting news. It has been an extremely busy Summer with non-stop shooting so I am slowly catching up on work. I guess it’s better late than never right? So without further adieu, I present you the Cover and the featured article along with some other images from their beautiful Destination Wedding in West Palm Beach, Aruba.

Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas Wedding

Few months ago I had the pleasure of traveling down to The Atlantis Paradise Island, a dreamy vacation getaway location located near Nassau Bahamas.

Few months ago I had the pleasure of traveling down to The Atlantis Paradise Island, a dreamy vacation getaway location located near Nassau Bahamas. This was my 4th time going down there so the natives consider me a Bahamian now. During the cold season, nothing beats spending a few days in paradise so I always look forward to their warm climate and friendly staff at the Atlantis resort. This is my third wedding that I got to photograph here. Joe & Jina got married here in October 2007 (their wedding was featured in the Destination Weddings & Honeymoon publication) and Jason & Riley had their beautiful wedding in December 2008.

We started out having an informal gathering at the Plato’s Lounge and Patio in the Royal Tower so that all the guests could mingle and get to know one another. We then had the rehearsal at the Cloisters located near the One & Only Ocean Club (where the James Bond Movie Casino Royale was filmed. Also many celebrities have their own weddings & events here). This was where the ceremony was going to take place. It was then followed by a cocktail hour at outside the Dig Deck overlooking the sunset and a sweeping lagoon views as the guests enjoyed some drinks before the big party. The reception was held at the Fathom’s private dining area where they had their dinner while enjoying the underwater view of ocean life and ruins. All in all, this was a special event for me to photograph. (I even got the garter from the bride since I was the only single guy there!). I hope you enjoy these 20+ collection of images that were taken by Bob Davis & myself. Please be patient as it downloads:
