Happy Anniversary to Linda and Samir – Kenya, Africa Destination Wedding

Just want to re-post this to celebrate Linda and Samir’s first year wedding anniversary of their Hindu wedding in Africa. Thanks again for making me and Bless a part of this adventure…

Kenya, Africa – a dream come true for me. When I was working as a photojournalist for the newspaper, It has always been dream to land a jackpot assignment and travel to Africa to photograph a story. That dream never become a reality. I never thought that it will happen now that I am a wedding photographer. Last February we travelled to East Africa to cover the union of an amazing couple from New York City – Linda and Samir. Check out these images from their Hindu wedding in Kenya. The whole experience was incredible, but the best part of this trip is we made so many good friends that we will treasure forever.

The amazing scene of Kenya!

Love this hanging bridge we found in the middle of the Kenyan jungle…

Special thanks to Lyna of KasalNY.com for introducing us to this amazing couple! Can’t wait to work with your team again today at their wedding at The Boasthouse. I know you guys will rock this wedding!

Queen - Linda and Samir, your wedding photos have left me speechless. They are gorgeous and you two look amazing. I admire the courage you got to pose on the bridge. Personally, it would take ages to do that. Hanging bridges are not my best. Of all the Indian weddings I have seen, this is my best.February 5, 2014 - 12:30 pm

Congratulations to Carol and Brian – Aruba Destination Wedding

We had a blast shooting the wedding of Carol and Brian last week at our favorite wedding destination – The Island of Aruba. It was a pleasure documenting the wedding of one of the coolest couples out there. Carol and Brian, thanks for treating us like your own family during your wedding week. From the snorkling trip to the wedding day, you and your family and friends became so close to us. We will never forget you guys…check out these images from their wedding day at the THE MANCHEBO BEACH RESORT & SPA.

Carol’s wedding dress sparkling under the Caribbean sun.

Gorgeous bride on her wedding day…

Love this shell stuffed with white rose petals that the flower girl is carrying…

Carol is escorted down the aisle by her two sons…

The sunset hour makes a good background light during the wedding ceremony at THE MANCHEBO BEACH RESORT & SPA.

Fun bridal party against the Aruban sunset…

And who could not resist going back to my favorite  ”trash the dress” locations…first I took them to the famous Quadiriki Caves located in ARIKOK NATIONAL PARK in Aruba. Many locals believe that these bat caves used to be a place for pirates to hide their treasures.

Then took them to get wet at the Boca Prins Beach

And in honor of Shark Month here’s a little fun, photographer Edwin Ochoa and I put together, all in the name of fun in photography…

Happy Anniversary to ELBA + ANTHONY – A Cancun, Mexico Destination Wedding

We documented Elba and Anthony’s wedding at the Gran Caribe Real Resort in Cancun, Mexico. This place is pretty amazing by the way, if you are looking for a great destination wedding venue. The wedding staff here are very nice and helpful! And great working with Christian and his wife Claudia of MEDIAMORFOSIS Cinematography. What a talented crew! They rocked the video for Elba and Anthony! After the wedding Christian and Claudia became really good friends.

The image we shot for their “trash the dress” session at the Mexican Cenotes has won a lot of awards. Thanks again for letting me document your wedding weekend in Cancun, Mexico!

Congrats to Viridiana and Sean! San Francisco Destination Wedding

Today is going to be the day Viridiana and Sean will tie the knot at Saints Peter and Paul, a Catholic Church run by the Salesians of Don Bosco in San Francisco. I remember being here more than 15 years ago during my years as a seminarian with the Salesians. It’s nice to be back again to this magnificent church.

A reception will follow at the Marines Memorial Club Hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco. We are going to have a blast with this fun couple. Viridiana and Sean are both from California but are now residing in New York City, where we first met them. We immediately clicked during our first meeting and I thank them for choosing me to document their destination wedding in San Francisco. Check out their engagement photos taken at New York’s Central Park and the Meat Packing District. Enjoy!

Gorgeous couple!

Love the moment here…just right on that split second when that bubble popped…

Sweetness…Love this spot at the Central Park Lake Bow Bridge, where lots of famous movies were filmed, like Spiderman 3 and many others.

I love this shot along the Highline at the Meat Packing District in New York, where the Kardashians often hang out.

Congratulations to Alicia and Mark – a destination wedding at Westin Diplomat Resort

…we are so excited to be part of this amazing wedding of Alicia and Mark at the Westin Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, FL. We met Alicia and Mark back in 2011 in Washington DC, where both are now based. They chose to do a destination wedding in Florida and what a great choice to hold their BIG DAY at the amazing Westin Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, FL. This resort, which is about 30 minutes away from Miami, Florida, actually reminds me of the Westin Resort in Aruba, where we have stayed a couple of times when we shoot weddings there. We are very impressed with how hospitable the staff at this hotel are. And the view is just so breathetaking! Check out this first picture shot from our room…and Thank you to Alicia and Mark for the accommodations! That was really nice of you guys…

We shot Alicia and Mark’s engagement in Washington DC, where the two are currently based for their jobs.

Love this shot from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial…

Alicia’s ring…WOW!

Congrats Alicia and Mark…we wish you guys all the best!
