Of course like any other photographer we all dream about getting the opportunity to do a destination wedding so when the Wachtel Family said we were going to Jamaica we were thrilled. We had already been to Cabo San Lucas so we knew exactly what to expect. Party!!! Just kidding it really is a lot of work but this family has been so special to us that we knew it would be so much fun. It is a rare occasion when we get to bring our girls along with us when we work but the family insisted and it was one of the best work/vacations we have ever had. The great thing about bringing your photographer with you is that we go out of our way to photograph every event. Not only do we shoot the family lounging and playing by the pool but we get a pre photoshoot of the couple, the rehearsal, family pics and the wedding. I think most couples would be a little disappointed with resort photography when they see a comparison.There were so many special things about this wedding. Of course all the families are fantastic. We knew that before we got there. The food was great and the surroundings were beautiful. I think I was most surprised at how personalized the ceremony was. There were many times when I shed a little tear and laughed, like when dad gave his speech and this is his last little girl of 3 to get married. Then he put on his Rasta wig and we all laughed. Jason the groom, had written the song for their first dance and it was amazing. To top the night off the groom challenged Andrew to a white-boy dance off. Somehow I ended up flat on my back on the dance floor and my husband won the challenge. I can't thank this family enough for trusting us with all their family pictures and daughters weddings. Here is a fun little video of how our week was spent and the background music was provided by the groom. Enjoy!
