Beautiful wedding, I love the beach photos. 😀 The bride’s wedding dress is simple yet very elegant. I really like it. PS, is it just me, or the bride has a little resemblance with Halle Berry? 😀

Hello, I’m getting married in August and looking for photographer and venue. We are looking to have a beach wedding in Portugal. I love the way this wedding looked. Could you give some information in terms of the exact venue of this wedding and details of your photography services?

Thank you,

Zulaika & Mark | Maui Destination Wedding

I met Zulaika and Mark about a year ago at a mutual friend’s BBQ here in Calgary.  That mutual friend was also a client who’s destination wedding I photographed in the Dominican Republic.  Our mutual friend had told me that Zee and Mark were planning on getting married in Hawaii and were looking for a photographer.  Most people who know me, know that Hawaii is my most favorite place on the planet.  I have always wanted to shoot a wedding in Hawaii, so naturally I had to throw my stick in the pile (hockey reference), hoping they’d want to consider me.  Consider me they did!  Before we even went to Hawaii, I got to know Z&M a little better and they soon felt like a couple friends that I have always known.  Both of them came to Calgary from the UK when Zee got transferred at work, so most of their guest were from the UK.  They even had friends and family from the UAE and Spain.  This was a true destination wedding and I was more than happy to be their photographer.

Michael+Anya :: Married :: Denver, CO

Honestly, I don’t know where even to start. Bride, groom, bridal party, location, atmosphere…everything was just amazing. I felt so lucky just to be at the wedding, not even mentioning that I had privilege to capture moments of the most important day in Michael’s and Anya’s life.These guys were a bundle of fun to work with, with so much laughter, smiles, and positive energy on their wedding day, it created an amazing atmosphere to work in. What I can say…It was an amazing wedding and even more amazing couple!

Rachel Tatem - June 6, 2011 - 4:08 pm

I love your use of reflective surfaces! And that last shot is just so sweet

Abigail Winters - June 6, 2011 - 8:12 pm

Sensational imagery! I was hooked right from the first image where you managed to capture the true emotions of Michael and Anya with the added bonus of breathtaking imagery in the background. Nice!

Robert Speck - June 6, 2011 - 8:14 pm

Image 7 of the bride is absolutely beautiful. Wow!

Brianna Phelan - June 6, 2011 - 8:24 pm

I think you take some of the best ceremony shots I’ve seen. The one of the bride being handed over made me choked up and smile at the same time. And the exit – beautiful. Loved them 🙂

Shane O'Neill - June 9, 2011 - 11:10 am
