We often get asked what makes a great wedding. Is it location? A good looking couple? Nice decor? If we were to pick one single “thing” that makes a wedding great, it would, without a doubt, be great energy. The energy that is given off by happy, happy people has got to be one of the best things in the world.

When we met Vanessa and Rob in Cape Cod, we felt that energy right away. The way they look at each other and laugh with each other seems as though they are in on a secret inside joke. Even if you’re not in on it, you still can’t help but smile. Their friends and family seemed thrilled to be reunited for the occasion, and there was a smilar sense of deep, longtime friendship among them. And if there is one place where the energy was at an all time high, it was certainly the dance floor! The awesome 90s hits they played had everyone – including us – in a blissfully nostalgic mood that spread across the packed dancefloor.

Continuing on the theme of energy, we stuck Vanessa and Rob out to the beach during dinnertime, just as a storm was rolling in. The wind was intense, but the sunset peeking out from behind those storm clouds was just stunning. Willing and trusting, these troopers trekked along on the rocks for us. The whole ordeal lasted all but a few minutes, and we returned with out-of-control windswept hair and sandboxes in our shoes… but we were giddy. It kind of felt like now the four of us were in on a secret, having experienced this mini adventure together.

Vanessa and Rob, thank you for selecting us to capture the wonderful energy of your wedding. You can see out favorites by clicking on the arrows above.

Irene + Jimmy | Paro, Bhutan

Getting to Paro, Bhutan is no easy feat. The country has but one airline, which only flies out of a select few destinations in Asia. Only 8 pilots in the world are trained and certified to take off or land there, and the weather conditions have to be just right – a tricky thing to predict at an elevation of 7300 feet. As we swerved through the mountains and prepared to (hopefully) land safely, I turned to Daniel and said, “You just know that a place that’s this hard to get to is going to be good!” As it turns out, this proclamation would prove to be quite the understatement.

Irene and Jimmy chose to have their wedding in Bhutan after falling in love with the place on a previous trip. They wanted their guests to experience the stunning landscapes and unique culture for themselves, so they planned a 3-day affair to show off the best of what the region has to offer. From the traditional performances upon our arrival, to the farewell hike up to an ancient fortress (for which all guests donned cultural dress), Irene and Jimmy ensured that their guests got the full Bhutanese experience.

The greatest highlight for us, not just of this trip but possibly of our entire careers as wedding photographers, was the monk’s blessing.The city’s 1300 year old local temple receives very few visitors, and those visitors must abide by a strict no photos rule. Much to our delight, they graciously waived this rule for us and allowed us to photograph the blessing of Irene and Jimmy’s marriage. What our cameras could not capture was the sound of the monks’ instruments and chants – a sound which gave both Daniel and I goosebumps and tears in our eyes.

Irene and Jimmy, thank you for choosing us to document this special event and special place for you. It was truly the experience of a lifetime.

  11. Ashley A-Photo

    I do not have anywhere to begin really…. rather than saying once again how inspired and amazed I am by your work. Your art. Your vision and your ‘push’ through each and every image. It’s beyond me to even comprehend how you do it. Thank you so much for sharing such beautiful imagery.

  26. Adam Kealing

    OK. So here’s the deal. You have to stop. You’re too good. You’ve reached a level of beyond perfection, and once that level is reached there is nowhere else to go. It’s like climbing a really really really tall ladder but somehow when you two reached the top you just kept on climbing. It’s like you’re just miming your way up into the clouds and it’s freaking crazy. Everyone on earth is starring up at you going “how the hell are they doing this?” Just incredible stuff.

  27. Kevin Lam

    Amazing set of images in an even more amazing place. You really out did yourselves.

  28. naomi
