Harbour Island | The Wedding

0001San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkHere are some images from the wedding on Harbour Island that we were so fortunate to get to document.  This day was unbelievable. It kind of felt like a dream, really.  The day started with rain and ended with the bride, groom, and guests in the pool.  Actually, that was the way the day ended.  The party went on until sunrise!  The epic sunset (above) marked the end of the ceremony and the party began with the Junkanoo band (below).  There was a lot of laughter, a few tears (of joy), great food, many Goombay Smashes, and lots of music and dancing.  Rick and I will never forget this incredible day in this magical place.0002San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa Park0003San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThe groom checking out the rain.0004San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa Park0005San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa Park0006San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThis dapper Groom is ready to get this party started.0007San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThe Bride.0008San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkWaiting for her groom to arrive…0009San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkI love this portrait of the gorgeous bride; so elegant.  Almost balletic.  She is the definition of stunning.0010San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThe ceremony location was moved, last minute, due to rain… This was plan B. 0011San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkBride and Groom…0012San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThis is the vibe that this couple emits..and it’s contageous!0013San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThe local Junkanoo band kicked off the celebration.0014San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkMarried.0015San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkThe couple soaks it all in before heading to the reception.0016San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic Creative Husband Wife Team Engagement Session Balboa ParkParty time.

Harbour Island, Bahamas

0001 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticThis is Harbour Island; a small island with a big personality.  Being only three miles long, the preferred mode of transportation is by golf cart.  No cars needed.  The people are some of the warmest you’ll ever meet. In fact, you can’t pass by anyone on this island without waving hello.  When you arrive on the island, the welcome sign reads “Harbour Island: Home of Friendly People.”  The sand is pink. The fish are plentiful.  This place is a hidden paradise tucked away in the Bahamas.  Rick and I consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been asked to photograph a wedding here for an amazing couple.  Wedding photos coming soon. For now, just relax and enjoy some images from around the island.0002 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticFisherman0003 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticFishing Nets0004 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticThe Bay0005 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticBoys playing in the water near a pile of conk shells0006 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticThis is the delicious animal that once lived in the conk shell.0007 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticI’m not sure how they got these license plates, since there aren’t really cars on the island.0008 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticLocal Dog0009 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticSome sweet local kids0010 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticThe rooster catcher0011 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticOne of the many amazing sunsets0012 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticThe Landing0013 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticRoots0014 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticDoors of the Rock House0015 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticDock0018 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticSecurity guard at Viccum Night Club.0019 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticOwner of Viccum proudly sharing the famous ‘biggest coconut on the Island’.0020 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticLocal guy at the club.0021 International Destination Wedding Photographer PhotojournalisticThis was pretty much how each day ended…

Beautiful Denver Backyard Wedding

0001 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticThis summer we had a rare opportunity to be guests at a wedding! We were so excited to celebrate Rick’s cousin Nadene’s wedding to her wonderful boyfriend of ten years.  This was an occasion that we had been anticipating for a long time, and we couldn’t have been happier for them to officially tie the knot.  This beautiful couple had an intimate ceremony in their lovely city of Portland and came back home to Denver to celebrate with all of their family and friends.  This backyard wedding celebration was timeless, with live Italian music and Big Band.  Rick, Dylan and I danced the night away under the gorgeous Colorado skies, and we managed to take a few photos too.  Our little guy was cuttin’ the rug until after midnight! And the party was still going when we finally had to leave to get our son to bed.  Congratulations to this timeless couple on an incredible start to their married life together!0002 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticShe is just stunning.0003 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticA few minutes of downtime before seeing her husband…0004 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticShe’s glowing!0005 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticThe beautiful women of the family.0006 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticDylan decided to make a bouquet of his own, while I was photographing the family.0007 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticThis band was amazing!  They played a combination of Italian music and Big Band/Swing. 0008 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticNadene surprised Shane with a performance!  She pulled out the trumpet she hadn’t played since high school and took lessons for weeks before the wedding.  Their first dance started with her playing, and the band took over as she then joined Shane on the dance floor for a swing dance.0009 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticShane was shocked!0010 Destination Wedding Photographers PhotojournalisticIf I could sum up the event with one image, this would be it.
