Every wedding that I have shot has been special to me, and this wedding is no exception. We have all known Jaziel since he was a baby! (sorry Jaziel, had to throw that in there) his entire family has become everyone’s family who we all love dearly, so it’s no surprise to that we were all in expectation of this wonderful wedding day. All of us present no doubt agree that Hatty and Jaziel are THE sweetest couple who have a tremendous amount of gratitude for what they have, an immense love and respect for Jehovah, their families and friends. To be part of this wedding not only as a friend, but also as a photographer, was VERY special to me, and to say that I enjoyed shooting this wedding, would be a great understatement!
Jaziel & Hatty,
This post is for you, your family and friends. We know it’s not always possible to show wedding photos personally, so here are a few images that will take ALL OF US back to your beautiful wedding day! Thank you for choosing me as your photographer 🙂
Disclosure: This is by far the longest post ever! So sit back, put some nice music on (preferably romantic) and grab a glass of wine or beer is ok too 😉
The bracelet was made by Hatty when she was 15.. love the personal touches.
Who needs a florist when you have a SUPER BFF (Jeannie) who can make you the PERFECT bridal bouquet?!!
Yeap, that’s Hattie on the phone with Jaziel 🙂
Vanessa and Ori, you did an amazing job with hair and make-up!
Multi-tasking Jeannie, not only doing her own make-up, but others too! 🙂
This day was NOT short of laughter!
Special moments like these are once in a lifetime
Friends like these are keepers!!
Poor Jevin had just woken up and right after had to walk the isle, so if it was us, I am sure we wouldn’t be so happy either 😉
There goes Jevin! Totally awake and ready to perform 🙂
My favorite 🙂
Hatty, you made one beautiful bride!!
I love this! Laughter, is mandatory in a marriage 🙂
There were a lot of DIY elements that made everything look pretty and personal. A wedding does not need to be expensive to be beautiful… really!
Francis said a few words in Hatian Creole … this was one of their expressions. I’d say they were surprised 🙂
We sneaked away for some golden hour portraits … a MUST!
This is how much in sync these girlfriends are … they all wear blue WITHOUT knowing! Awesome!!
Jaziel, you are the man in Hatty’s life, but Jeannie will always be the girl and BFF in her life 😉
And now, time for the friends that make celebrating good times worth while!
Sorry Jaziel … as photographer I am allowed ONE sort of embarrassing photo .. haha 😉
Congratulations Hatty and Jaziel!!!!!!!!
