First wedding shoot of 2018

Our first wedding of 2018 is done and delivered …with the added bonus of it being shot as the the Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica! Thanks to Adrienne and Greg for bringing me along for their special day.  The whole place is like a big studio. Easy to see why the fashion shooters pack up the whole crew and just goes shoot on a Caribbean resort.

Got a wedding you need photographed this year? We have some openings still for 2018. It doesn’t have to be in Jamaica! Drop us a line. and check out our wedding photo gallery.

Congratulations to actor and playwright, Paul Rowe, on a successful season bringing Bishop Michael Fleming back to life during performances and guided tour of the Basilica of Saint John the Baptist in St John’s, Newfoundland this summer. Fleming made the building of the Basilica his life’s work. The national historic site and iconic landmark in the Newfoundland capital is one of those epic tales of human perseverance and will that leaves its mark in history.
