Joanne + James’ St. Lucia Wedding Extravaganza

When James and Joanne contacted us about shooting their wedding in St.Lucia, we knew we could not turn that down! We love shooting destination weddings because they are always unique celebrations, and when you are with people for multiple days, there are endless moments to capture. What we hadn’t prepared ourselves for, was that this was not just a wedding, this was a one-of-a-kind, multi-day, family filled, love extravaganza!

From the moment we arrived at The Landings, until the minute we left (and for the months following) we were welcomed like family. At no point were we “hired help.” We were treated like guests (which, as you’ll see, was fantastic), who happened to have a few expensive cameras along for the ride.

James and Joanne both live in New York and their family and friends are the most important thing in the world to them. They are also two of the most generous and down to earth people. As a result, they decided they wanted their wedding to be not just about them, but instead they wanted it to be an experience for their guests to remember for the rest of their lives.

The breathtaking vistas that we were surrounded by each day were nothing compared to the special moments that we got to witness. From the rain on the beach during their ceremony, to the catamaran shenanigans (combining rum punch, dancing, and intimate moments), this was a wedding we will never forget!

James and Joanne, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of this incredible celebration, and we are so happy to now have you both in our lives.
