Wedding TV Highlights The Cayman Islands

We’ve sure been having fun with Simon and Jack from Wedding TV! They’re over from the UK doing a special on weddings and honeymoons in the Cayman Islands.  On Saturday, my wife was shooting one wedding at The Caribbean Club while I was shooting another at the Marriott and the guys from Wedding TV filmed a bit of both!  Then we dragged them along on Sunday for a Trash the Dress with my Saturday bride, Shana.  She and her new husband, David, had fun galavanting in the water and we all enjoyed some champagne and strawberries after the shoot.  Life could be worse!  Thanks to the Father of the Bride, Mike, for snapping this shot.  And thanks to Laura Shelbourne (Cayman Islands Dept. of Tourism / UK) for setting the whole thing up!

Danielle Cococcia - Great photo! Looks like lots of fun!!!June 1, 2010 – 2:00 pm

Rosemarie and Tony Renew their vows at the Westin Casuarina Beach Resort

After ten years of marriage and blessed with two adorable children, Rosemarie and Tony decided they’d do it all over again.  And that’s exactly what they did!  Their intimate vow renewal at the Westin Casuarina Beach Resort on Grand Cayman provided an opportunity for a special vacation and some unique family portraits along the way.  I’m sure Tony would agree that Rosemarie is just as beautiful today as she was ten years ago when they were first married.  Thanks again to the Crew at the Westin!  Especially Leyla for involving me in this special occasion.  Farewell Amanda!  Come see us up north!  Its a pretty drive!  Good Luck Rosemarie and Tony!  Hope to see you, Olivia and Anthony on your 20th!

Judith & Pete’s Wedding Photos! The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

Judith and Pete are truly special people and well deserving of each other.  I don’t think I’ve ever met a more perfectly matched couple. Nor have I been involved with a more perfect wedding!  101 close friends and family flew in from New York and around the world for this fantastic wedding at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman on world famous Seven Mile Beach!   A more perfect day couldn’t be had!  We had the bride and groom over to our house for breakfast and they couldn’t be more pleased with their destination wedding experience in the Cayman Islands!  Thanks to Keisha of Celebrations for introducing me to this wonderful couple and to the rest of the team at Celebrations for all the beautiful details!  Please Note Ritz-Carlton wedding packages do not include our services.  To book David Wolfe as your wedding photographer, please contact us directly.

Barbara and Steven Engagement Photos – Marriott Grand Cayman

Barbara and Steven flew in from Houston just to get engaged and have some photos taken to announce their engagement.  It was a whirlwind 3-day trip and I was thrilled to work with them!  We got up in the dark and, as the sun was rising, started taking photos in the Marriott courtyard by the turtle pool.  The courtyard at the Marriott is a perfect outdoor studio.  The beach at sunrise has no one else on it so they have their own private beach backdrop.  Miles of pure white Seven Mile Beach for a backdrop.  Stunning!  I hope this will start a trend!

Barbara - David you are awesome! These were the best photos we have ever taken our entire lives. Thanks so much!May 10, 2010 – 6:31 am
