Karen told me she was really looking forward for their first and probably last family photoshoot. They never had a professionally photos taken and everyone, except Karen, was sceptics about this. So, the mood for photos, was completely OFF.
I get it, almost all the time “I’m not photogenic… I don’t like my face… I don’t like my body…I don’t have a good photo…”, but Karen…. had that feeling that I can do the magic for her family and all she asked for Christmas was “a photoshoot with Oli”. I listen, I look at them, and I already see them happy and with zero worries for how the photos will come out :))
A gorgeous family, mom and dad, brother & sisters with their family in a perfect location: BELIZE! What can beat this?! The hardest part is to make them feel comfortable with you so I start with few portraits of the kids and than I told them “OK, guys, is time for serious things here: everyone, get a drink and shoes off!” And… we start… than, the second beer… than a cocktail, than few portraits around and then… the pool! :))
When I left, they told me “you know, none of us wanted this, but now we really look forward for those photos. Are so much fun!!!
This photoshoot was at an wonderfull place, with a pure caribbean flavor, CAPTAIN MORGAN RETREAT, located in north Ambergris Caye, Belize.
Here are first few photos from many more to come:
My first wedding at Captain Morgan, one of the oldest and the most respectable resorts from Ambergris Caye! And was a total blast!
It is impossible for me to forget your wedding date: 10-10-2010! And to say “I DO” at 10:10 am is more than unusual and amazing!
“Captain Morgan’s Resort is undoubedly one of Belize’s premier vacation destinations… The resort sits on some of the finest pristine beachfront on Ambergris Caye…” Like this start the description of the resort on their page Captain Morgan and I can’t agree more!
Lynne and Christopher, I absolutely LOVED your wedding day. We had tons of fun! The nature there is unbelievable! The palm trees are amazing, the beach is wonderful, the kayaks were there waiting for us, we even find a star fish right there… we went around the place for 2 hours and we still find more and more places to photograph.
Captain Morgan is AMAZING and I am really happy I had the chance to photograph there!
Me, personally, love intimate weddings… and your group was great! I love the fun we had! I loved the location! I love the spirit of the bride and groom! We had so much fun going around and just having fun!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for having me there in your wedding day!
More photos from this wedding will always be under my website.
Enjoy my favorites!
