Jamaican Vacation

Photography not only allows you to see some crazy things but takes you to some crazy places. Up until this trip it only took me to back roads and abandoned alleys but now I can say it took me to sunny Jamaica!

Travel kind of makes me a crazy person - especially international travel - but two short flights from good ole Oklahoma and next thing I know I'm in Jamaica Mon! 

After arriving and checking in we took a little lap around the resort and had some of the best pizza ever. The next day was all about sun and relaxing - we even got some kayaking and snorkeling in! Before I knew it Saturday had arrived and it was wedding time. Sunday was spent decompressing and visiting the "craft market" in Ochie and soaking it all in on our last day.

I have heard so many opinions on Jamaica but seeing it for myself really changed how I viewed this island. Everyone was so friendly and never once did I feel "unsafe" in Jamaica. I will tell you that Jamaican men will flirt with a box of rocks - so bring your swatting stick to bat them off 

The resort peacock!
Below are pictures from the craft market - a shanty village of sorts

We are already planning our next trip back to this gorgeous island! 
Thank you Jamaica for the amazing experience

Baby Alex

The first picture in this post gets me. Those eyes - such an itty bitty baby and already so focused. Alex is such a cutie and did so well for his pictures - his doggy siblings were so interested and he managed to sleep anyways. 

That red hair - those baby smiles - swoon!

Griffin Hallock Wedding - Jamaica Destination

I love taking pictures - I love finding light and thinking through the composition of what I am shooting - but what I love most are the people I get capture. Recently, I had the privilege of traveling all the way to Jamaica to capture two amazing people committing their lives to each other.

Thank you guys so much for the opportunity to capture your big day - it was a huge honor and privilege!
