One way ticket back to the Caribbean please

My husband and I just returned from a cruise through the Western Caribbean and of course I took a ton of photos so I thought I’d share some with everyone. The trip was part of a wedding gift that we decided to use for our 2 year anniversary and we had such a blast.

My favorite stop was Grand Cayman where David booked a private fishing guide and we walked the beach all day with not a single tourist in sight. It was heaven!

Yeah…. I could live here.

In Jamaica we booked a private guide who took us all over the island. I highly recommend booking a private tour (not through the cruise ship) which I was suprised to find didn’t cost any more money and gave us personalized service without the crowds.

Everything in Jamaica is so colorful.

One of our stops in Jamaica was YS falls where we hiked around and also did the canopy zipline over the waterfalls.

In Cozumel we did some snorkeling and David had fun taking underwater photos of all the fish swimming around us

Back on the ship we made friends with 2 other couples who kept us entertained. If we ever win the lotto I’m booking a cruise with these friends every year!

Of course the best part of the trip was spending time with my husband (*insert cheesy music here*) Today is our 2 year anniversary and I couldn’t imagine having a better friend to spend my life with. Happy Anniversary!

Sure… come on over!

I got a call from Cindy this week hoping I could squeeze in a last minute family session while her son was home on a short leave. The family stopped y for a mini session in my backyard and I’d say this will be a great photo to go on the wall.

I love outdoor weddings!

Last weekend kicked off my favorite time of year … the start of OUTDOOR WEDDINGS!!!  Gary and Geri tied the knot at D’lightful Celebrations on saturday and after holding their breath all week, the sun came out and the day was gorgeous.  Not only did I enjoy spending time with the sweet couple but I also had fun catching up with their friends who are many of my past clients. It’s always so fun to reconnect (and watch their families grow). Onto some of my favorites from the big day…

The wonderful Tiffani Stauffer assisted me on Saturday and grabbed some great shots from the side like this one –

After the ceremony we took advantage of the late afternoon ‘calm light’ to hightlight the gorgeous view of Mt Baker that D’lightful Celebrations offers

Bonus photo … not sure what I’m doing here although some may conclude that I was busting out the Thriller dance while photographing a wedding… wouldn’t suprise some if I did!

Isn’t it great having the sun back from a long winter hibernation? I love how the warm sun makes colors pop.
