Bahamas Wedding Photographer
I just love being a Bahamas Wedding Photographer. Even though based out of South Florida we find ourselves in the Bahamas at least 10 times per year. After knowing Rashan & Jamal for a while I knew their wedding would be special. Their day was surely a genuine union of two best friends. I’ve always thought Rashan and Jamal were meant for each other. The two celebrated their day in style as they both wore gold to accent the attire. Through the battles of the awful weather that day, I’m so happy that we were able to finish the day with some amazing images.
Engagement story from the bride-to-be :
On the first day of the year in 2015, I was totally oblivious as to how my life would
change that day. To my knowledge I was going to an annual New Year’s family
function. But to my surprise, it was surely a SURPRISE! Out of nowhere was the
voice of a family friend serenading me and leading me to the outside, I was totally
confused. I then saw that the outside was lit with icicle lights and adorned in all
white, at this point I blurted “Oh my God No!, I mean I YES, but nooo this can’t be
real!” At that point Jamal knelt and with a choked up voice he asked me to marry
him!! I indeed said YES!: D
For the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this
After the many challenges and all the happy moments in October 2014 I realized I
can’t do it all over with anyone and I will never love another like Rashan. I made
many sacrifices and bought a ring I know she would love to ask her to be with me
forever. I did not tell anyone anything until I had the ring and it was people I know
would not utter a word to my inquisitive girlfriend. Her aunt (Jennifer) and I had
many long conversations planning a surprise engagement. January 1st 2015 I got
down on one knee in front of close family and friends. She said YES!
What was the theme of your Wedding?
Vintage, capturing nature, with a mix of sensual and fun, which we think
somewhat describes us classic, romantic and fun and lots of red roses.
What makes your love special?
Constant renewal and daily mutual expression of our Love! We’ve realized that it is
a full time job where we actively commit to each other daily.
What did you most about your wedding?
Saying I do and hearing it in return. Sharing the commitment publicly with family
and friends whom we love, and of course the celebration that follows.
