Catriona and Iain - Connemara IRELAND

Wow what a journey! 8 full days in Ireland! We traveled to Connemara, Ireland to photograph Catriona and Iain's wedding in Clifden. What a joy it was for us to travel to such a beautiful part of the world and meet such great people! Many thanks to Peter Vine (Catriona's Father) for welcoming us to his area of the world... It was truly an honor for us to be invited to shoot this wedding. We photographed their civil ceremony at the Clarinbridge Court Hotel. After the ceremony, they rode in an old Rolls Royce through the picturesque, Irish countryside stopping at the Aughnanure Castle and Glassilaun Beach for portraits. The reception was held at the lovely Rosleague Hotel, Connemara. At the end of the evening, Catriona's sister Megan, performed a fire-dance under the starry skies. It was an experience... Such a beautiful wedding indeed! Also, special thanks to Rick Chapman for joining us on the adventure. Here are some images from the wedding. Also you can see the slideshow of images HERE.

***Note the empty Guinness glass!

Check back soon, as we will be posting our photo's from the rest of our Ireland journey in the next couple o' weeks.

Jaime and David Wedding Day

For our 7/7/07 wedding, we traveled to lovely Gualala to photograph Jaime and Davids wedding at St. Orres. What a beautiful place to get married. The location was ideal... All of their guests (including us) were put up in the cottages or local hotels. They were married in the grove between all of the cottages and then... After the ceremony we slipped away from the guests for a little portrait session. We surprised them with access to a private beach that we secured earlier in the day... It was a highlight for Jaime who really wanted to walk on a beach on her wedding day. The delicious gourmet dinner and outrageous dancing took place in the restaurant. It was very inspiring and the people were just terrific. You can see their slideshow HERE.
