Everything turned out PERFECT from beginning to end.
Nowadays we all know that planning a big wedding ( at least up until now ) is contingent on the amount of your beloved guests are traveling or not. Aruba being one of the top destination wedding locations of The Caribbean is usually packed with weddings happening practically on every beach possible. What we noticed is that more and more couples are opting to elope. Although not the huge party on the beach you initially wanted, still you get to celebrate the core of your marriage…. You both together expressing your love and sharing your vows to each other.
This is exactly what Ben and Melissa did. They had us document their Elopement in Aruba, and they had a blast. As photographers we more often than none draw our energy from our couples in front of the camera… Well, I do!
From the moment I met Ben and Melissa, I knew we were about to create some freakin’ bad ass images. Their energy was through the roof, which in turn made my energy double that. We started photographing in their room as they got ready together and traveled out to Malmok for some couples photos to create the contrast. They are naturals in front of the camera, btw! After that we went back to the Amazing beach of the Divi All Inclusive where they met Geoffrey Banfield. Geoffrey is THE TOP Officiant in Aruba and knows exactly how to evoke emotions with his unique ceremony blessings. I must add, He knew exactly where I was going to be to make sure I got the perfect angles of the couple. This is key!!! We highly recommend you book Geoffrey for your Elopement or Wedding!
After the ceremony we took some beach photos and used the surroundings for some more awesome shots. I can go on and on for hours about this session, but I think you should see for yourself.
