Well I didn't make the January 15 editing deadline but i'm close. The reroofing of my home took a little more of my time than I had anticipated. I'll be attending wedding videography workshops & seminars all next week so i'll have an update when I get back into office.
I take this opportunity again to thank all my wonderful and beautiful brides, their husbands and my other clients for their support during 2007 and 2008 and to wish for all a great 2008. May all your dreams come true, may you have happy marriages and may you continue to be blessed. I'm adding some more shots from Diana & Dwight's wedding and one of the roof replacement on my house. That is not me in the photo.(Just making sure)

Another great wedding with another happy ending...or begining depending on how you look at it. Diana & Dwight were my first couple for 2008 and they started my year off with a bang. We darted in and out of the rain to get the images for the portrait session but the sun eventually came back out and all was well.
Diana was coiffed by celebrity stylist Dexter Pottinger, decor was handled by Dorette Douglas, who did a fantastic job in very limited time, Ade Beckles of Heavenly Concepts was the wedding coordinator and Pauline Milwood of The Mona Visitors Lodge coordinated the reception. Rising Star Lenya Wilks entertained.
The reception was held at the Mona Visitors Lodge, a popular wedding reception venue in Kingston situated on part of what used to be a sugar plantation in the early days. The ruins provided an excellent backdrop for photographs and the gold room was fully decked out by Dorette Douglas and her team.
Dianie and her FCIB posse were in the house, but those pics will follow in a subsequent blog as I really must go to sleep now.

Saturday December 29, 2007 came & went. I got so many requests to cover weddings on that date I wonder how many got married last Saturday. Anyway I digress. The wedding I covered was of Shellion & Richard and was held at the breathtaking Tryall Club on Jamaica's North Coast. Anyone planning to get married in Jamaica should definately consider this location. The view, the food, the service, the location, all first class. Coordinator Paula Scarlett-Grant worked well with Herbert Baur in ensuring that all went well.
We had so many breathtaking locations for the portrait session we ran out of light. The wind took the bride's head piece into the ocean but a young swimmer retrieved it and all was well again. Happy Honeymoon guys!
