What a Wonderful World.......
I went to HAWAII!!!
Many moons ago, Don & Hillary asked yours truly to be their wedding. Originally the knot was to be tied in Nashville where they both are from and run successful wedding industry businesses. Don is a photographer and Hillary is the brilliance behind Brocade Design. (Should also note that Don and Hillary we're BOTH students at Genesis 1, Durum addition). No wonder theirs so awesome! ;)
Where do I begin? Gosh, this wedding was just beyond anything I can describe. Don, Hillary I can't thank you enough for the invite to shoot your grand affair. Everything came off in such high style and I expected nothing less. I can't tell you how HONORED I felt when asked to not only sit during dinner with the bride and broom but to also be right next to Don while I had the greatest Mahi Mahi I've ever eaten in my life. REAL TALK. I won't speak much more.
To top it all off, their wedding was even featured in Style Me Pretty :: Destination Weddings just this past week. Brides and blog followers will know that SMP ranks among the very best in all-things-wedding, and it's truly a privilege to be showcased there.

Current brides. This wedding is the result of lots of planning and solid communication between client and photographer. We also did a "next day shoot" where we went BONKERS with the dress that included jumping in the pool. All in all it was EPIC. Have a look my friends.
I have over 80 images below that will do the talking for me.
I should note here that our bride went through a MASSIVE life style change and dropped some significant weight in the months leading up to this grand day. I'll remain the gentlemen and not talk numbers, but you'd be AMAZED!!!!!!!! Hillary, you looked incredible. Wow wow wow!
I fought back some serious tears here. We all did.
This was taken about 6 minutes after saying I do!
I love this so so so so much. Photographers, I waited a good 4-5 minutes for this expression.
Thriller, I believe. ;)
HOT!....errr, cold... but still HOT!
Have the best-est life guys. You deserve it!
Bonus behind the scenes shot. Okay, we were supposed to do a practice, synchronized jump except we weren't supposed to jump. Everyone got the memo expect for DON. LOOK at those reactions. Hahahahahahaha. I love it.
