Southern Palms Hotel Barbados Wedding: Donna and Shaun

When I walked into their hotel room at the Southern Palms Hotel, to begin photographing their wedding, the laughs began. No holds barred was the order of the day, and the irony of life, is that he was a cage fighter. Needless to say, his bride was well protected.

Crystal Cove Hotel, and Tides Restaurant Barbados Wedding: Tracey and Stuart

When I'm asked to do a small, intimate wedding, I get the tickles all over. There is just something about deciding to become man and wife with minimal planning and few details that I love. Photographing this destination wedding was all of that, and more. Tracey and Stuart had known each other for over 30 years, but their lives, initially, took different paths. But as life does, it throws curve balls at us, and our directions change. Tracey and Stuart found one another again, and this time, there was no letting go.

It rocks, I won't even lie.

I know, it sounds totally barbaric, but I think it's worse to catch, maim and release it back into the water partially damaged. I'm a firm believer of respecting nature, and honoring the life that's been given to you for food. In comes the fishing.

Be a dreamer, follow the “somewhere else”.

I've always considered myself a dreamer. That person who would put their hands to their chin and stare out the window - yep, that was me. As a child, I spent so much time thinking - thinking about something else, didn't matter what that "else" was, I was never in the present - I was always somewhere else.

30 minutes in the life, August 2016

I've been wanting to try a few things for a long time with my camera. Shooting through glasses, through plastic bags, and generally just play. Haven't done that in so long. I grabbed my go-to model and went to the bedroom with some gorgeous light.
