Judy and Matt : Jamaican Wedding Part 1 • Destination Wedding Photographer

Negril Jamaica, honestly I don’t think Judy and Matt could have picked a more perfect location for their big day! This little island town is bubbling with personality and color and fits Judy and Matt’s personality to a T!  Their wedding day started as most, the ladies getting ready in one villa and the boys in another, OK so maybe most don’t start on a beach and in villas, but you get the gist! Tears were not far from eyes as Judy was preparing for the day with one sister doing her hair and the other by her side. Friends gathered round to see the beautiful bride jump in her amazing gown, and amazing doesn’t even begin to describe it. I mean seriously how beautiful does she look in that dress!

Then came the first look, a moment that always catches my heart. It was perfect, in the middle of tropical plants and pathways around their resort, Moon Dance Villas! After sweet words were exchanged we headed off to my favorite part of the day, their couple portraits! Before the day began Greg, my second photographer, and I headed off location scouting and what a selection we had! The beach we choose for this first location was a beautiful local beach that was pretty secluded. The water here is such a vibrant shade of blue and the sand a beautiful white, this paired with a perfect couple like Judy and Matt and you have some amazing photo eye candy!

Since I couldn’t quite fit their entire wedding day into a single post, there will be a PART 2! Check back soon!
