Destination Wedding: Samantha and Brock

Dear Sam and Brock~

I cannot say enough how much I appreciate the fact that you had me to shoot your wedding, and that you trusted me enough to invite me to Mexico to do it!
I must say, this was a definite learning experience- doing a destination wedding has it's own set of rules, and I am happy that we were able to just roll with what was thrown our way. Brock, I am SO glad I finally got to meet you, and Sam, I cannot believe how gorgeous you are. Inside and out! You both rock my world!

This was a spot I wanted to get more pictures at. There was another wedding held at this exact spot shortly after I shot this portrait of Brock, so we weren't able to stop back here. Bummer!

Sam and Brock did a "First Look" because we wanted enough time for pictures, since they had a late afternoon ceremony.
This was my angle:

And my amazing husband, Jonathan, shot with me- this is the first look from his angle:

Just Married!

After the ceremony, we went for a little stroll along the beach with Sam and Brock's daughter, who was also the flower girl!

I am in love with the long table set-up- especially on a terrace that overlooks the Caribbean!
