Eliot and Kristina: #JamaicanMeSchultz | Lesanie Images | Jamaica Elopement Photographer

We were thrilled when Holly contacted us and asked if we would be interested in capturing her daughter's wedding in our home country, Jamaica! Holly had been to Jamaica several times and wanted to have a local photographer document her daughter's nuptials. Not only was it important for it to be a local wedding vendor with style and aesthetics that matched the vision of Kristina's wedding day but it needed to be affordable as well. And having found all three, in one wedding vendor was an extreme bonus.

Both Eliot and Kristina decided to have a micro wedding at Villas Sur Mer in Negril so they flew their close family members and friends from Wisconsin all the way to Jamaica. They picked November 19th to say ‘I do’ to each other in a beautiful cave on the cliffs of West End. What we witnessed on their wedding day was nothing short of true love. Eliot and Kristina’s wedding had beautiful moments, starting with a beautiful bouquet from Eliot with a card that said "This is our day!", handwritten notes to beautiful jewelry, this wedding was as sweet as they come. One of our favorite treasures of their wedding was the beautifully written personal vows they wrote for each other.

Then there was the Mother and Daughter "First Look" between Kristina and her mom Holly - because it’s not only the groom and bride’s first look that is beautiful to watch. Weddings are emotional and it was especially true for Holly when she saw her daughter in her wedding dress for the first time... anyone have a tissue?
