[Carisa + Ed]

Here it all is!!!!!! So I had the pleasure of photographing Carisa and Ed's Wedding in Aruba and one of my awesome friends and amazing fellow photographer came along with me, Diana M Lott. I have been working with Carisa for almost a year and it was so great to finally meet her and when I did, I felt right at home! What a great group of friends! They are partiers and well, I'm not gonna complain!!!! We had such a blast and lots of shooting, but when it is this much fun it doesn't feel like work!
So after meeting with Ed and Carisa officially, Diana and I decide to walk along the beach and we run into the rehearsal dinner! Which I guess isn't too odd on a 19 mile island! We happened to have cameras in tow and took a few shots and not just with our cameras! Whew! JW and Tequila should not be mixed!

The next day we headed out into downtown Aruba for some engagement photos. It was a little warm but we had a great time and ran into some interesting characters along the way!

The next day Carisa and Ed invited Diana and I on to a sunset cruise! Once again we didn't have to shoot but with such a fun group and gorgeous view we just couldn't help ourselves! This was a blast! The sunset was amazing!

The Wedding Day has arrived! (This Monique Lhuillier gown will be trashed, well just really wet! at the end of this blog!)

check out those gucci's!

Carisa trying not to ruin her makeup while reading a poem that Ed wrote to her to read before the ceremony!

Ed had a special message delivered to him from Carisa by Stefan (the best man) Why does Ed not want it????

Ed looking handsome!

The Guys!!!!!!

Carisa and the girls (Carisa is a natural in front of the camera and thank you for trusting Diana and I when we wanted to photograph you in the bathroom!

The boat ride to the private island (beautiful!!!! and I loved it when the boat would go super fast!)

A little detail

Amazing ceremony site

The Wedding Party!!!! (Seriously, jumping never gets old and with this group they had plenty of energy!!!)

the flamigos on the island were so cool!

The reception

Carisa's nickname is Mrs. Pnut and Ed's nickname is Mr. Turtle, how cute!!!!!

Can you blame her for being that freaked out!

someone has to carry her over the threshold!

The father/daughter dance

Don't ask! Were they at table 1 or 2????

The Day After Session... So after surving the almost hurricane! We were still able to pull off the day after session where we trashed the dress! Well, the dress will be fine and we got some amazing photos from it all! Thanks Carisa and Ed for being such troopers through these next photos. It was a blast and I think well worth it!

They were completely soaked after this shot! But it was awesome!

Thanks again to the both of you for all your trust and willigness! Diana and I had such a blast the whole time we were with you guys! We can't wait to see you in NY or on the west coast! Anytime there is JW we will always think of you!!!!!!

There were only a few things keeping us from staying in Bora Bora - real NY pizza, flamin' hot cheetos, and of course, your amazing photos.
It was a pleasure and honor to have you and Diana as our photographers for our wedding weekend. From the first conversation you and I had, I knew you would be perfect.

Your professionalism, your energy, your great sense of humor, and your even more amazing eye allowed Ed and I to be as comfortable as possible and allowed us to enjoy almost every moment...

We really enjoyed having you guys party with us as well and can't wait to have you come out to NY.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures.

Carisa and Ed
