Cuba Sunsets + Bride & Groom = Awesome Images!

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Last week we had the pleasure of attending & photographing the wedding of John & Andrea in Cuba on the beaches of Cayo Coco.  It’s always an honor to be asked to photograph another Professional Photographers wedding when there are so many options out there in our industry.

Andrea & John had gorgeous beachside ceremony followed by cocktails and dinner.  We opted to head out the next day during the afternoon/evening hours to create some unique wedding images for the couple using backgrounds found minutes from the resort.

We had a blast hanging out with everyone, especially our photographer friends that we only get to see a few times a year.   Every time we all get together we always reminisce about how/where we met and how fortunate we all are that photography has brought us into each others lives.

Andrea, John, thanks again for a great week of sun fun & rum.

Here are a couple from last week.  More to come.  Enjoy

Just received this great email from one of our destination wedding couples.
(She has been sitting on this for awhile 🙂 )

“When we first got engaged we knew we wanted to do a destination wedding, and that we wanted amazing wedding photos to enjoy for years to come.  After looking on the websites for the resorts we quickly realized that photography was not their strong suit.

So the search was on to find a photographer that could capture our special day, and then some.  When we came across James Hodgins photography we were blown away by his creativity and editorial type style.  His attention to detail was like nothing we had seen before, and the way he used lighting and special effects was remarkable.

The first time we met with James and Jocelyne we knew we had made the right decision because we felt instantly comfortable around them.  You could tell they were very excited to shoot the wedding, and were very good at listening to what style we wanted.  They had a great balance between having a well operated business, and just having fun and genuinely enjoying their work.

With destination weddings there were a lot of other details we had to deal with, like traveling arrangements, hotels etc…  James and Jocelyne were always very understanding and patient and took the stress off of these situations, which was very helpful.   They were always so great at giving quick responses to any questions or concerns we may have had.

Once arriving in Jamaica, they never lost sight of why they were there.  They got to work right away scoping out different locations around the resort to set up photo shoots.  Together they were amazing at coming up with some outstanding ideas, but they were also very open to any suggestions we may have had also.

On the day of the wedding they were very organized and knew when and where they needed to be.  They made all our friends and family feel relaxed, and they assured all my “anti-photo” relatives that they would get the best shots ever and that they were doing great0 (which just made the day go by that much smoother.  Thanks for that James. )

During the ceremony James was amazing at capturing the moments without having to be right up in our faces.  Half the wedding party didn’t even realize that he was taking pictures, which made it so much more relaxed and natural. (That’s the sign of a true master)

After  the ceremony we were dealing with the elements, it would rain off and on, but they always knew how to make it work to their advantage, and get some of the best pictures because of it.  The whole time we were having fun, and they made it exciting and not like it was a chore. (which was always the response we got from other couples that got married)

There aren’t enough ways I can describe how amazing it was to work with James and Jocelyne, it’s was so natural and fun.  They definitely don’t have the “look at the camera, look at each other, now kiss” type of photography which is really great.  It was the best day of our lives and we totally have Hodgins photography to thank for adding to it in so many ways.

The images we received were like nothing we could have imagined and they speak for themselves.  If you have any doubt in your mind if you should invest in your photos… the answer is YES!!!! 100 million percent YES!!!”

We are on our way home now.  Some people didn’t want to see us leave Negril.   I  have a great story to share with you all about the images surrounding this image.   Thousands to go through, but it will be worth the wait.  See you all later today.

Home from Cuba

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Well we are back home now from our vacation/wedding in Cayo Coco Cuba. The weather was somewhat cooler but on the wedding day it was perfect. I’m posting this lone image for now, as I still have to go through everything. I will have ALOT more images this week, not only from the wedding, but from the trip as well. I’m just trying to get back into winter mode. 🙂Cuba Wedding Photographer
