A Family Affair kind of Wedding at Las Terrazas, Belize

Is well known already that Belize is a top World Destination Wedding…. and Jenna & Cooper decided to choose us to tie the knot. A tropical island, laid back wedding, filled with love & happiness surrounded by people close to their hearts… this was their dream wedding day and choosing fabulous Las Terrazas Resort was the topping of their day.

A perfect location: Ambergris Caye, Belize, the most beautiful island in the world..

We were in the middle of a cold front, with heavy rain for days… we looked online and looked like we’ll have a wet day ahead… Personally, I consider rain the most romantic weather… and if will rain in your wedding day, that’s totally OK! At least, with me as your photographer 🙂

Once I arrived, the details were everywhere…

After family photos, I usually go with my bride and groom around resort, beach, pier.. for at least 1 hour.. this wedding was extremely different… They told me they want to enjoy the reception with their friends… and I got few minutes for bridal portraits… I said.. “I can do this…” My bridal shoot was exactly 7 minutes!
