Katey and Nick decided to hire me to photograph their destination wedding in Negril, Jamaica this last October. We decided to do a sunrise couples session the morning before the wedding and I am so happy we did the session. It did suck waking up at 4:45am but the photos were some of my favorite photos to date… or at least they were my favorite until the wedding.
We started their wedding day timeline went like this: getting ready, first look photos on a pier overlooking the ocean, wedding party, family, ceremony, cocktail hour, sunset bridal portraits and reception. These two beautiful souls were surrounded by their closest friends and family. I cried many times during the day because I was photographing the love of these two in freaking Jamaica. It was truly a dream come true to watch them get married on the beach.
After photographing my first destination wedding, I know for a fact I want to do this for the rest of my life. It was so surreal that is happened just 2 weeks ago and I am getting to capture their day again in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Congrats to the Conway’s and thank you for allowing me to be part of your day
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for Nick and I. Saying I appreciate you is a understatement I love you girl and I love all the pictures and your patience with NICK and I. It was very much an emotional roller coaster and you were there to keep everything straight and organized. You’re just not a photographer you’re a wedding planner, you’re a friend and most importantly you are a kind hearted lady and I will cherish the moments that you captured forever!” Katey Conway (Bride)
