Venezia Palace Wedding, Antalya, Turkey - Otty and Ibiene

Ibiene has always wanted a destination wedding. In fact I remember before she got engaged she and I always talked about how she would get married in Santorini. When she got engaged to Otty she called me and told me that she would be looking for a location that would suit her vision unfortunately Santorini wouldn't be the location that I would shoot her wedding. Antalya provided a really interested backdrop that I was so excited with. I flew out there with my buddy Beena who was the most amazing second shooter through out the trip. In fact this almost a vacation that we just happen to be shooting Otty and Ibeine's wedding. 

We had the opportunity of shooting a day after session, something we always try to do whenever we shoot a destination wedding. You get a lot of VERY interesting compositions and also images that reflect the location of your destination. Why wouldn't you?

Otty and Ibiene's guests were one of the most expressive I had ever shot. Always had something to surprise us throughout the day. This was one fun event to shoot.

Atlantis Bahamas Wedding, Asim + Ashley, SneakpeEk

We shoot so many weddings all over the world that we haven't even had time to share most of them online quick enough. I think it would be good to share some images from the weddings we are shooting as we shoot them. So here you go our first "sneak peek" into a recent destination wedding we shot in the Bahamas.

We are yet to post their engagement session but Asim and Ashley have been a very fine couple. They had a destination wedding in the Beautiful location of the Atlantis Resort at the Bahamas. They had family mainly who flew from all over the caribbean attend their very intimate ceremony. We were VERY blessed with the weather on this one. More photos to come later. Enjoy the sneak peek.
