I have so, so much to say about Alyssa+Ben’s amazingness and how we ended up in Jamaica with them, but I’mma save that all for their wedding blog post. So for now, just be satisfied with these pictures of Alyssa and Ben tackling each other and faceplanting in the water together. Rest assured that it was like 900 degrees with 900% humidity when we shot these, and admire how little they look like they’re sweating. Gaze upon the gloriousness of a Jamaican beach and know that somewhere, somehow, Bob Marley is playing softly in the distance. And please enjoy a pina colada on our behalf as you look through these. BRB with their wedding.

Back in April we shot a ridiculously fabulous wedding in Positano, Italy and super fun Vespa-filled engagement session in Rome. Prior to those shoots, we traveled around a bit in Switzerland and Italy for two weeks and took a bunch of pictures (and 24 hours in London). It seems like forever ago. 2016 was just beginning to suck then. We found out that Prince had died while watching the news at the train station in Venice around midnight. I also still had longer dark hair (it’s currently about three inches long and blonde or purple depending on which day you see me), England was still part of the EU, and Toblerone still had all of its chocolate (thank goodness). So let’s take a trip down our European memory lane back to the beginning of 2016 when we were blissfully unaware of the horrors that awaited us.
