While photographing Samantha and Landon's engagement session, we began talking about their wedding plans...the date, the location, etc.  While Brian and I had been discussing taking a vacation to St. Lucia, we had no idea that Sam and Landon were also planning a trip to St. Lucia for their wedding at the Sandals Grande!  We rearranged our vacation date and were in St. Lucia to photograph Sam and Landon's intimate wedding, so intimate that we were the only guests on the guest list.  Samantha also choose to not use the Sandals Grande on staff wedding photographer. Their wedding day at Sandals Grande was stunning - the weather was beautiful, the scenery was breathtaking, and these two were ready to get married!  Sam and Landon...Thank you for letting us come along, and be a part of your first day as husband and wife, and also your second day ;)

The bride and groom opted to not see each other before the wedding so we arranged the first look to happen as she walked down to the ceremony, with him keeping his back turned. Love his reaction!

I love when couples allow plenty of time for photos after the ceremony, for a photographer that's when the magic begins.  These are images that you will cherish.

We even ventured out of the resort and out of the Caribbean waters...to find the Atlantic waters.  It was beautiful!
