Kate & Bill at Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa in Aruba – Destination Wedding

For the special wedding date of 12-12-12 I was very fortunate to be asked by Kate & Bill to join them and their friends and family in Aruba. We had a fantastic time! I’d never been to Aruba before and I was very impressed. The Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa was a perfect venue. An amazing beach, great food, and an old-school vibe that I loved.

The photos below span the entire week, and this is why you should bring your own photographer to your destination wedding. When a volleyball match broke out on the first afternoon, I was there. When the iguana visited during breakfast, I was there. When Bill, Kate, and her brothers rented a Jeep to offroad on the east side of the island and visit Baby Beach, I was there. And, now that it’s -11C outside where I live, I wish I was back there. This is just the first of several destination weddings I’ll be posting in the coming months.

  1. Love the group shot photobomb! lol

    And the crab guarding the ring. How did you do that? It didn’t care, like a Honey Badger?

    E

  2. I loved that group shot too… it happened so fast, the group wasn’t even ready but I shot anyways. It’s really hard to see in this blog post because the photo is so small, but for that wide-angle first kiss shot there is a surfer right behind the couple. I had to jump off a ladder and run to get him in the frame for that, covering a lens in sand in the process, but it was worth it. And Mr. Crab did care at first… he kept running away when I’d get close, but I made friends with him and he eventually stayed still long enough to get the shot. It was a day or two before the wedding, so I had a lot of time on my hands.
