Sarah & Ahmed’s wedding at Ponomakena Sanctuary was a big party and I loved every second of it.

We started the day with photographing the girls getting ready at The Andaz. I love the Andaz because it’s such a clean hotel with nice modern design. It’s perfect for getting ready photos. Sarah’s girls all dressed in different colors and prints. I love how it brought the style of each individual bridesmaid.

Sarah is a huge Beyonce fan so the girls channeled her throughout the entire day.. they even walked danced down the aisle to Beyonce.

Sarah wanted to be able to hear the music no matter where she was on the property so DJ Clarity made sure to always have the volume up really high. It was impossible to not move your body throughout the entire wedding day.

Above all, Sarah & Ahmed’s main photography “want” was to get a ton of candids. I’ve shot countless weddings and I pride myself on knowing where to be to get the best images. I’m always observing and anticipating the moments that are about to happen. There are a few images that are the product of luck, but most of them come from years of experience.

When you scroll through the gallery, you’ll see so many candids of Sarah, Ahmed, and their guests enjoying the destination wedding. The list of incredible vendors that made this entire wedding possible are listed below the images. Don’t forget to check them out!
