Here are some more details.

Something unique about the Event: Duh! A gorgeous and intimate wedding on an island in the Caribbean!

About the couple: Amazing! They were very sweet and a joy spend time with. Sean and Ashley had such an appreciation for photography and were so eager to capture fun and artistic shots. Their wedding was like nothing we have ever photographed, it started in Antigua and ended with a full reception for the rest of their loved ones back home here in PA (a few weeks later). Sean and Ashley are beautiful people in all respects and obviously were so in love and grateful to be marrying each other. We are so fortunate to know them  and humbled to have been among the very few who got to witness their wedding.

    Oh my my my…. Kimberly and John, your style is always breathtaking. You know, I have been trying to put into words how your images make me feel (which is hard to do because I feel many thing), but what I came away with today was, romantic.
    You both really know how to capture the true romance between people.
    Wonderful wonderful!

At the end of the night both John and I were just overcome with the beauty of the day.  It wasn’t the details, it wasn’t the venue or the cake or the dresses.  The reason we fell in love with this wedding, fell in love with this gorgeous day, fell in love with this family and fell in love with Tommy and Kara was simple.  We love the way they loved.  I wanted to wrap that whole day up and put it on a shelf, only to unwrap it in 20 years as a gift to my little girl.  I can only dream such a perfect day filled with so much love for her.  Thank you Tommy and Kara, for allowing us to be a part of yours.

So Kimberly and I have been crazy busy this spring. So many weddings its not even funny. Almost half of our weddings for 2010 were in the past 3 months. Part of the challenge of being really busy married wedding photographers is not ignoring your kids, giving them a wholesome life experience yet still giving our clients the services they expect. So we take turns most of the time*, one of us works the other gets to spend the day with the kids. On this particular occasion I (John) got to take the kiddos strawberry pickin’, an essential childhood experience (pickin’ anything really). We want to teach the kids about real food, we want them to know that the best food comes from the work of your own hands and that the best people to enjoy real food with is the people you call family (whoever that may be in your life).  Strawberries are real food, pickin strawberries with family is love, making jelly is good work and eating everything you can make from a strawberry with family is pure joy. As a Father, for me its, about giving my children a taste of heaven, I hope they got it. That picture of the three of them above, standing together in the field is about the most awesome thing I have ever photographed, an amazing fathers day present the kids gave me without knowing it. I try to show them heaven and they always show it to me.

(I need to give credit where credit is due.. the kids and I were lounging around the house (kinda whiny) when Kimberly said “Why don’t you go pick some strawberries?”. So if the kids saw anything of heaven it was because of their good momma.)

* Of course, if we get anything done it is usually because of the amazing people who watch our kids when we need them to.

    Beautiful images and beautiful children. I love what you wrote! Your kids will remember these things and look back with fondness. Nothing better then creating memories.

  • wonderful! reminds me of picking strawberries in Florida when I was younger. beautiful subjects and tones.

  • carolyn murray wise

    Great shots and notes, beautiful! If i remember it was one of Kimberly’s past Father’s Day blogs that I found, made me cry and decide you were the photographers I wanted to meet! Happy Father’s Day John!

  • Great images! I’m so glad you had a great fathers day.
