What an amazing weekend I had in the Bahamas!
I flew out early Thursday to photograph a wedding with Leigh Miller on the Grand Island of the Bahamas. Friday evening we photographed Christine and Allen’s rehearsal dinner. All the festivities and celebration took place at the Westin Our Lucaya. You can’t ask for a more ideal setting: palm trees and blue sky above the head and white sand under the feet overlooking the ocean and the setting sun. Here are some images from the dinner.
Saturday morning was the wedding. First we caught up with Christine and her bridesmaids as they were getting ready in the spa.
The beautiful ceremony site was set up overlooking the ocean.
Allen and the groomsmen.
The cutest little flowergirl.
The beautiful maid of honor and the bridesmaids pretty in pink.
The first kiss.

The happy newlyweds: Christine and Allen.
Reception followed the ceremony in the Manor House where Christine and Allen had four different wedding cakes to cut and taste. (Hmmm, my kind of reception…)
Sunday morning started with a 6 AM photo session of Christine and Allen alone. I got to see an amazing sunrise on the beach and took beautiful portraits of the newlyweds. Leigh’s idea to get them in the pool worked out perfectly. Who knew that jumping in the pool at 6AM with your clothes on can be such fun? Every one got in the pool except me…deep pools are not for short people like me… 8)
But here’s an image of Leigh photographing in the pool and some more images I took in the morning.
I love this last photo of Christine and Allen: they look so happy and in love.
Christine and Allen make such a great couple; they were very nice, attractive and open to creative ideas. The perfect couple to photograph! Congratulations to Christine and Allen; wishing you a lifetime of happiness.
