This Belize wedding was a grand adventure for Del Sol Photography, heading south to the tropical island of Ambergris Caye to celebrate the union of a gorgeous couple. A four-hour drive and a “puddle jumper” flight in a private plane and we were ready to explore paradise and celebrate love.
Keeping in mind, there was NO ceremony location chosen prior to our arrival. We were to charter a jon boat and explore to find the perfect remote beach, on the wedding day we were on 5 different boats including an amazing sail boat around the entire Ambergris Caye of San Pedro.
Perhaps the story is best told by the bride and groom, here it is in their own words:
…Hey Guys, Wow! You are amazing… the pictures… you’re work… It’s exactly what we’re looking for. My fiance Lara and I are planning a wedding in Belize…. picture it… A white sand beach that crests just above the water not more than a few inches… no trees, no dirt… nothing but sand… water so clear it magnifies the ocean floor for miles around and skies so blue and perfect that the odd cloud only enhances every scene. .. The bride’s shoes are nothing more than a few simple beads wrapped in her perfect feet with only the sand beneath…. The wedding will be simple… a Bride… a Groom… Our 9 month old son… Best Man, Brides Maids, the Mums and Dads and few close friends. A simple exchanges of vows, a toast and off we go………. to trash the dress…. We have a 46 foot luxury sailboat to take us… and only us (photographer and skipper of course)…. off on our adventure… We want to find the most amazing locations to create the most amazing pictures possible and of course……. trash the dress. Our captain can take us anywhere within a few hundred kilometres…. for the four days preceding we plan on exploring the area and exhausting every lead we have to find the most perfect places possible. We have two dresses; both are stunning on my magnificent bride… We’re full of adventure and willing to push boundaries in every direction. We want so bad to capture our special time… especially with your work……- Josh and Lara
What is even more amazing, is that we can deliver a photograph that was a figment of someone’s imagination. This is one of our most amazing adventure tours with clients, around the islands… We highly recommend the 2nd day photo shoot, a trash the dress in the city of San Pedro Belize and a speed boat finding an abandoned fishing shack in the middle of nowhere.
