sneak peek-raegan & joe’s day after session|grand cayman destination wedding photographer

have i mentioned how much i love raegan & joe? because…i so, so do. they were TROUPERS! we’d planned to do a day after session, and when i saw the sunrise time…i gulped. i was sure they were going to hate me for suggesting we get started that early. but 0600 rolled around, and they were there with bells on. (joe replete with his “road sandwich.” i believe it was salami and provolone. vegetarian raegan requested that he chew gum before any kissy kissy to avoid the phenomenon they refer to as “meat mouth”. how can you not love ppl who talk about “road sandwiches” and “meat mouth”?)

we headed to their favourite spot on the island, rum point. there will be another, more exhaustive post later, but here are a few of my quick favourites!

rachel hadiashar of merge said this looked like he was captured on captain hook’s pirate ship and wendy darling was going to save him. i love that little story!

you see that light right there? THAT’S why we had to get up so early. that kind of light is only available just after sunrise and just before sunset…early was better for us; we had the whole beach to ourselves!

also, i cannot believe i’m going to show you this, but…knowing we were shooting on the beach, i wore my swimsuit. i wanted to be able to go anywhere…tam got this shot of me and one of my weird contorted positions (if i’ve photographed you, you KNOW what i’m talking about!)

tammy’s view.

my view

and then we saw a giant stingray. the end.

Destination weddings always make for amazing photos! And Rachel is right about the photo looking like something out of peter pan…

Um, Awesome stuff and the sting ray????EEEEK! Funny we were on the beach once and I swear my husband pretty much stepped on one buried under the sand in some VERY shallow water. It swam off without hurting anyone, but he ran out of that water yelling like a little girl, of which we have 2, and he totally abandoned them in the water. No one was hurt though LOL
