About a year ago, I get a message from my buddy SteveÂ telling me he’s engaged – Fantastic! And then he writes “Want to go on vacation with us?” – Even more Fantastic-er! (IT’S A WORD)
So begins the journey of Steve and Jody getting married in Negril, Jamaica! I was incredibly honoured to have been tapped with the privilege of capturing them. On a beach? All Inclusive? Some awesome friends along on the trip? They knew how to do it, and do it in style!

I can’t speak enough about how much of a great time was had by all at the beautiful resort “The Rui Negril”, as the staff and accommodations were top notch, and the libations…liberal (with more food than you even know what to do with!). Fun Fact: If you hear the word “Jerk” before any food title, it means it will be hot and spicy. VERY hot and spicy. And awesome.
The wedding itself was a wonderfully beautiful affair, with Jody and Steve exchanging vows on the beach, Jody being escorted out by her son, a fun photo session along the waterfront, and ending with an intimate dinner in the private dining area.
Despite the fact that the humidity ensured we were all soaking with sweat by the end of the day, it was a wonderful occasion, with wonderful people, and one we will all not forget anytime soon!
