Diane & Gage Taylor / Ochos Rios, Jamaica / by Andrew Kelly

In April, I got the chance to travel with Gage and Diane, to head to Jamaica for their wedding. 

Throughout the week, we shot photos, went on adventures and even got to celebrate my birthday with the entire wedding group on board a catamaran destined for Dunns River Falls. 

Several mornings were spent on the beach, whether shooting trash the dress photos with the wedding couple, or watching the sun rise and taking in the calmness of the ocean and the beach in the early hours of the day. 

It is always a new experience, with every destination wedding, but this group really made every moment count. It was like being in Jamaica with one huge family. 

The day of the wedding was stunning - stunning and extremely hot. Everything went according to plan and Diane and Gage tied the knot on the beach in front of their closest friend and family. 

Here are some shots from the wedding, along with two shots from one of our morning shoots on the beach. Six in the morning comes quick in Jamaica, but once you were up and smells the ocean and heard the reggae playing, there was no chance in going back to catch more sleep. 

Thank you a million times over to Diane, Gage and their family and friends. These trips may be my job, but it's hard to feel like you are working when you are in a beautiful place, with wonderful people, doing exactly what you love to do. 

Next week I'll be posting some shots from my adventures and some of the insane sunrises and sunsets I caught with the Canon.
