In this case the destination is ‘La Isla Bonita’, otherwise known as Ambergris Caye, a small but perfectly formed island off the coast of Belize.
As destination wedding photographers in the beautiful country of Belize, Conch Creative knows exactly why people who fall in love want to come to Belize and why they fall in love with Belize while they are here. It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful setting for an intimate Caribbean beach wedding.
You’ll find long docks that you can explore reaching right out over the Caribbean Sea towards our barrier reef. Did you know that in Belize the beaches and docks are all public? There aren’t many places left in the world like that, where you can explore and enjoy the scenery to your heart’s content.
So, remember! Belize has everything you could possibly want for a destination wedding ……except lions.
Now is the time for our thank yous. A big thank you to the beautiful Belizean Shores Resort for hosting this wonderful wedding.
Conch Creative loves destination weddings in Belize. People who choose to marry in Belize tend to be people who like to step outside of ‘the box’ and like to do things just a little bit differently – and definitely their own way. This makes every wedding unique and often very entertaining for us. We’re going to share one of our recent favourites with you so that you can experience a true intimate and fun, barefoot wedding in Belize.
As we’re sure you’ve figured – both the ‘gal’ and the guitar feature heavily in this blog. Before the ceremony, our lovely and very romantic groom serenaded his bride to be. It was beyond sweet and you could tell how much she adored him.
Many couples choose Belize because they don’t want all of the fuss and stress associated with a traditional wedding. This is a perfect example of how simplicity can be so special. Marrying in a heart made from flowers and conch shells on a tranquil beach, overlooking the Caribbean Sea is perfectly divine.
..it seems that the possibilities of having fun in water, following a wedding, fully clothed are quite limitless. There’s no point in coming to Belize to have a fabulous wedding on a stunning beach in a tropical setting and not making the absolute most of it. As well as producing beautiful photographs, Conch Creative aims to help all of our wedding couples have fun.
There comes a time (usually sunset), when wedding photographers quietly fade into the darkness and leave the couple to enjoy their time together. We have no doubt that the assistance of Conch Creative was not required for the continuing fun.
We hope you enjoyed our most recent blog as much as we enjoyed making it. Of course, you can always join in the fun by becoming part of our Conch Creative community on Facebook. It’s easy – just click this Link.
If you’re wondering where that fantastic wedding was held, well as always we’re proud to have worked with the quite fantabulous Coco Beach Resort.
We’ll be blogging again soon and would love to hear from you. Would you rather see brides or bikinis?
As you can probably see from recent blogs, Conch Creative works with a lot of couples who like unique and different wedding photography. Maybe it’s something to do with Belize – after all, couples are planning to travel thousands of miles to marry in this beautiful country. Whatever the reason, we’re grateful because we get the opportunity to work with people who are often creative, always great fun and who have chosen us because they know that Conch Creative is one hundred percent committed to providing not just an enjoyable and entertaining wedding photography experience but also because they know that they’ll never look better than they do through Conch Creative’s lenses.

Mucho thanks to the beautiful Xanadu Island Resort for hosting the wonderful wedding featured in this blog.
Look out for more from Conch Creative soon! Thanks so much for reading our blog.
If you follow our blog, you’ll know that we love fun and unconventional weddings. We have been very much looking forward to blogging this particular wedding as we laughed so hard throughout the day that we came back with our cheeks aching. This was a couple who were crazy in love and that craziness was definitely a feature of their romantic beach wedding on Ambergris Caye. So, please join us for Sean and Denise’s destination wedding in beautiful Belize.
Then it was time for group pictures. We work really hard to help our couples to have fun group shots as they can be so boring sometimes. In this instance no encouragement was necessary. We all know that after the group shots come the family shots and here’s one that we will never forget.
So we thought that once we got the lovely couple away from the group, things would calm down a bit. For a moment, they were as cute as buttons snuggled up on their golf cart. But that didn’t last for long.
What could we do but take a picture? But now we were on a mission. We always want to give our bride romantic photos, no matter how ‘crazy in love’ she really is. So we waved our magic ‘Conch’ and got them in the mood.
If you enjoyed this blog, you might enjoy our Facebook Page too. Give it a try by just clicking here. That’s where we post our most current work and publish sneak previews.
Special thanks to Exotic Caye Beach Resort for hosting this beautiful wedding.
Even specialer thanks to Crazy Canucks Bar for lending us the stools for the group shot.
And specialerer thanks to Victoria House for allowing us to use their beautiful beach for the after ceremony shoot.
If we’ve forgotten even more specialererer thanks, please let us know. Conch Creative wants everyone to feel loved and appreciated – even if a Sea Cucumber makes you feel small.
‘Why would you want to do that?’, we often hear when we tell people that our couple have booked us for a Trash the Dress session. We try to explain that it really is not about trashing anything, but actually about creating something beautiful. Trash the Dress has become an art form – and yes, some brides really do go for it and trash their dress completely. Why not? Very few brides in this day in age plan to wrap their dress in mothballs hoping that a future daughter might choose to wear it again. But good photographs are definitely something that will be saved for future generations.
Trash the Dress sessions allow us, as a creative team, to add an element of fantasy. We love to take our subjects out of context and find beauty in the most unusual places.
Trash the Dress sessions can be incredibly fun and romantic for the bride and groom. Where else are they going to find a team like Conch Creative encouraging them to express their naughty side and to play in the water in their wedding gear?
When we start a Trash the Dress session we usually spend some time with the bride, working on portraits. The groom will stand and watch and we can always see the pride growing in his eyes. That’s when we know it’s a good time to invite the groom to join in.
If you’ve ever wondered why someone would want to ‘Trash the Dress’, now you know. These beautiful images will bring back memories of a magical and enchanting wedding in Belize and they’ll never go out of style.
This wedding and Trash the Dress session was held at the gorgeous Las Terrazas Resort.
We are sort of unusual destination wedding photographers in that we are already at the destination. Because we live and work here, we know how to get the best out of the weather, how to get our couples to look fabulous, even when it’s very hot, and – we know all of the best locations. But even more than that, we like to help our wonderful wedding couples to have an amazing experience. For many of our lovely couples, they are already having a great time here diving, snorkeling, fishing and exploring Maya ruins, but there are some couples who are just passing through – for a fleeting visit – and for them, their wedding and photography experience make up the sum total of their time in Belize. These are couples who stop to visit Belize, while traveling the Caribbean on a cruise ship. The couple above are one of those very special couples.
When a bride to be gets in touch and tells us what her fantasy wedding pictures will look like, we do our best to oblige. When we’re told ‘I want to make the most of the Caribbean and get wet!’, we make sure it happens.
It didn’t take long for the groom to turn the tables and with blue eyes like that, we can see why the lovely bride looks so happy. Before they knew it, it was time to go and catch their ship – but now they have the most wonderful photographs to remind them of their romantic escape to a little island in Caribbean, known affectionately as ‘La Isla Bonita’.
When our calendar is not full of exciting and fabulous weddings, we still manage to have plenty of fun ourselves. We love working with talented people and love getting the opportunity to give them our own special ‘Conch Creative’ touch.
A few days before the shoot, a friend had dropped off some hot chili peppers. We find beauty in everything around us and we felt that it was about time that our chili peppers were given the glamorous boost they deserved. Hot! Hot! Hot!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this installment of the Conch Creative Blog.

As always we have to offer special thanks to the businesses and individuals who made this blog possible.
Firstly – thanks to ‘I DO’ Belize Weddings, the wonderful wedding coordinators for the cruise ship wedding.
Thanks to the beautiful Las Terrazas Resort for organising and hosting the drier, but still very beautiful, wedding.
And finally, thanks to you for reading our blog. We hope you liked it. If you did, please do share it!
Weddings in Belize inspire couples to ‘do their own thing’. Belize, of course, is a magical place for a destination wedding and the freedom of celebrating a marriage in such a romantic and exotic location allows people to relax, be themselves and have fun with it.
San Pedro is best known as a barefoot wedding destination and some girls just LOVE their shoes. It can be a bit tricky wearing heels on the beach, but you can’t blame a girl for trying.
Whatever shoes they bring, most brides end up kicking off their shoes to enjoy the sand between their toes as a genuine ‘barefoot bride’.
We can’t mention ‘la différence’ without including the classic battle of the sexes. Women and men have much different ways of celebrating before a ceremony. The girls make themselves beautiful and toast with champagne.
Other guests, which turn up frequently to weddings in Belize, are uninvited, hairy and have four legs. Fortunately most couples we work with love dogs and are perfectly happy to share some of their goodies with their new best friend. Almost every wedding we’ve photographed in San Pedro has had cute local dogs as gate crashers.
Others love the mystery of the ancient Maya ruins on the mainland of Belize. With the Maya people and their calendar receiving so much press lately because of a surging interest in ‘end of the world’ predictions, ruins weddings are becoming popular amongst adventurous couples who want to do something completely different.
We also try to keep our portraits a little ‘different’ if the couple so desire. Many of our clients come to us because they want contemporary, funky and fun images rather than conventional and traditional. So we do our best to bring out the inner Vanity Fair model in our brides and…..
If you’ve kept up with our blog, you’ll know that we aren’t just ‘one trick ponies’. We do a lot more than wedding photography and we love “la différence”
But ultimately, as much as we like to be different – who can resist a pretty, semi clad woman on a deserted sand bar? Conch Creative does a wide range of private and personal shoots. Many women choose to do a glamour shoot with Conch Creative because the images created make them feel great about themselves.
Two of the beautiful weddings featured in this blog were organised by ‘I DO’ Belize Weddings. They have featured the Maya ruins wedding and Conch Creative photography in their own blog, which you can find here: ‘I DO’ Belize Weddings Blog
Conch Creative would also like to extend special thanks to Mary Gonzalez and the San Pedro Sun for doing a feature story on the Maya ruins wedding at Xunantunich. You can find that wedding here: Maya Ruins Wedding – San Pedro Sun
All of the weddings in this blog are recent. The locations include the following resorts Xanadu Island Resort, Blue Tang Inn, Capricorn Resort and Pelican Reef Villas. The Maya ruin wedding location was Xunantunich in the Cayo District of Belize
We thank all of our readers for your time and feedback. If you like our blog, you might just love our Facebook page, which features fresh new images from our most recent shoots – Conch Creative Facebook Page
You’ll really want to keep an eye on that Facebook Page as something very exciting will be announced at the end of the month.
As photographers in Belize we’re often asked what our job is like. What do we do? What is a normal working week? Well, if you’ve ever been to Belize, you’ll realise that Belize has it’s own rhythm, it’s own style, it’s own innate beauty. So, working as photographers in Belize is probably unlike being a photographer anywhere else in the world.
Belize is a place for contemplation. The beautiful bride pictured above is about to marry the love of her life at Captain Morgan’s Retreat.
Belize is definitely magical. It can also be wet. Living on the Caribbean Sea means that we sometimes work on the water, in the water and even under the water. This underwater shot was taken just off the dock at Ramon’s Village Resort.
Belize is mysterious. Because Belize is the home of the ancient Maya people and they believed that caves were portals to the underworld, some of our photography is underground. This was taken after a mile long hike through the Actun Chapat cave near San Jose Succotz. The floor is littered with pottery. This cave is on private property but tours can be arranged through Ken Dart of Belizean Sun Tours.
Above all…Belize isn’t always what you think it will be. This is Eddie, (AKA Handyman Eddie). He’s come to our rescue on more than one occasion to save us from floods and fires. Honestly – he really has. Eddie is Belizean. With him is Keppy, a macaw. Belize is somewhat famous for its macaws. Keppy, though, is not Belizean. Keppy is a Miligold Macaw. Eddie rescued her from a very uncertain future. Conch Creative does not support the keeping of wildlife as pets and would always prefer to see birds flying free, but Keppy was bred in captivity and would never survive in the wild. She and Eddie have a very close relationship and we were thrilled to be able to capture this special moment between them.
So folks this is just a taster of what being a photographer in Belize is all about. We hope you enjoyed sharing this blog with us. We certainly enjoyed making it. All of the photos in this blog were taken within the last two months. Oh and in case you didn’t know – this is us, Conch Creative, at work in Belize. This photo was sneakily taken during a wedding shoot on Cayo Espanto by the lovely groom to be, Alan. Thanks for sending it to us Alan!
Special thanks goes to Keli at I DO Belize Weddings, who organised and planned both of our featured weddings.

Wedding photographers love the opportunity to do something different, something unique and something out of the ordinary. Many would say that Conch Creative gets to do that every day as we are ‘in situ’ destination wedding photographers in Belize, one of the most beautiful countries in the world – and you certainly won’t hear us complaining. But we must admit that our heart skips a beat and we get giddy with excitement when a bride contacts us and says she wants to do a Trash the Dress session. We know that this is a bride we’re going to have fun with…but not all Trash the Dress sessions involve just trashing the dress. Let us share a Trash the Dress experience with you – Conch Creative style.
Even before we met this couple, we knew they were special and wonderful. Once we met them and their beautiful families, we were absolutely convinced. This is Ryan with their gorgeous son, who was a handsome if somewhat reluctant ring bearer. They are waiting for the ceremony to start.
The wedding, of course was beautiful. All weddings in San Pedro are beautiful – but this blog is not about the wedding, which was held at the gorgeous Xanadu Island Resort. But we just couldn’t help but include a romantic photograph from after the ceremony, just to remind our readers how amazing Ambergris Caye truly is. We don’t think there could be another image that could conjure up the fantasy of a ‘tropical wedding’ quite so well as this one does.
The day after the wedding, Carrie & Ryan’s friends and family decorated a golf cart. When Carrie booked her Trash the Dress, she said she wanted a flavour of San Pedro – she wanted images that were taken in and around town so that she’d have memories to treasure. Of course, Conch Creative felt obliged to be the ultimate tour guides. So we all piled into the golf cart and headed into the wilds of San Pedro Town.
Anyone who has spent any time on Ambergris Caye will know that Maria’s fruit and vegetable stand is a landmark and Miss Maria is an icon with (we’re losing count now) well over 50 grandchildren. She’s everyone’s grandma really and couldn’t wait to congratulate the bride and groom in her typically, warm and affectionate manner.
Ryan had to join her and so he, being a total Prince Charming, made his way through the warm waters to join Carrie.
And so ends our tale of a unique Trash the Dress experience with two very wonderful and beautiful people, who wanted the real San Pedro experience. We know that their wedding images will give them joy and memories of beautiful Belize for many years to come. Congratulations Carrie & Ryan and thank you for letting us share our gorgeous island with you.
Conch Creative would like to make it clear that no Manatees were hurt in the making of this blog.

If you’ve been following our blog, you’ll know that Conch Creative are Belize wedding photographers, specialising in beach weddings. Of course we also do other photography and we like to spice things up a little bit on our blog by sharing some of that with you too so that you can experience Belize as a location for your dream destination wedding. Welcome to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize
This is the beach in front of Ramon’s Village. There are some beautiful beaches on Ambergris Caye and this certainly is one of them.
As wedding photographers in Belize, we are often asked ‘What do you do if it rains?’. Of course, we say ‘We have to sacrifice a virgin to the Maya Rain God – Chac’. We’re proud to introduce you to Chac. He can be found lounging around the pool at Ramon’s Village.
Of course taking pictures can make you hungry, especially when the food looks as good as this. Could it be the incredible leaning tower of shrimp? The chef at Pineapple’s Restaurant knows how to wield a skewer for sure!
Ok, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, we couldn’t cheat you all out of a little love and romance. Stephanie and Edwin had some friends and family come to join them for their beautiful beach ceremony at Victoria House. Another of our fabulous Caribbean beaches ideal for that dream barefoot wedding. (except that Edwin wore shoes!)

As wedding photographers in Belize, we are so fortunate to be surrounded by spectacular beauty. Couples come to Belize because of the natural beauty and they come to San Pedro for it’s tropical island charm. Sometimes though, as photographers, we believe in keeping it simple. Something small and remarkable can bring back such wonderful memories of a wedding, like this minister preparing to offer the rings to Kelsey and Rich during their ceremony. Even though they had a large wedding party and wonderful decoration, it was the simple and beautiful images from that day that stood out to us.
We encourage couples to escape with us after the ceremony to get some breathing space and relax. During this time, couples can reflect upon what has just happened, celebrate quietly together and enjoy the beautiful surroundings they came to Belize to experience. It is during this time that we have the opportunity, as photographers, to be part of some of their most intimate moments. Kelsey and Rich were sharing a thoughtful and loving moment here.
While some couples bring their family and friends to San Pedro to help them celebrate their big day, others, like Tiffany and Orlando, prefer something quiet and private, with only their closest friends in attendance as witnesses. These simple ceremonies, with such a spectacular backdrop are often the most emotional and romantic.
A simple location, with a fantastic sky lends drama and depth to this image . Even after the most personal of ceremonies, couples just want those romantic moments following the ceremony all to themselves. Tiffany and Orlando, spent a great deal of time planning their ceremony in San Pedro, which was done during a day trip from a cruise ship and made sure to slow down and take the time to absorb the magic of San Pedro.
These images were taken at Las Terrazas and Rojo Lounge.
We have updated the Conch Creative website. If you have enjoyed the images you’ve seen on our blog, you might want to see our updated website with so many more images of fabulous weddings and other photographic adventures in Belize.
Conch Creative visited mainland Belize to photograph a wedding ceremony held at Xunantunich Maya ruins and then on to the beautiful Mahogany Hall. With 2012 looming and the popularity of the end of the world ‘prophecies’, there is a great deal of fascination and interest in the Maya culture. Of course, Belize is the heartland of this ancient civilisation and has many beautiful archaeological sites.
These sites are fabulous, magical and dramatic. Even more amazing is that there are usually hardly any people there and you can end up having the whole site to yourselves. On the day of Katie and Derrick’s ceremony, it was beautiful and clear.
Following the ceremony, Katie and Derrick took the opportunity to climb a pyramid, 130′ tall – the second largest man made structure in Belize. What an amazing experience and the memories will give them something to talk about for the rest of their lives.
Of course, if you’re familiar with Conch Creative you’ll know that we always like to do something a little bit different if we have a couple who are willing to have some fun. Please keep in mind that the Xunantunich site was not in any way closed to the public during this ceremony. The couple willingly posed multiple times allowing us to create this image.
Then it was on to the grand Mahogany Hall. This is a beautiful resort overlooking the Mopan River in Bullet Tree, just outside of San Ignacio, Belize.
No trip to mainland Belize would be complete without the requisite wildlife photographs. This is a Collared Aracari eating bananas at Mahogany Hall. If you’ve never been to mainland Belize, be warned – there are beautiful birds everywhere and it is rich with stunning wildlife – much of which you’ll never see anywhere else in the world.
Before we knew it, we were back on our beautiful jewel in the Caribbean, Ambergris Caye, for a beach wedding at the unique and very cool Xanadu resort.
Conch Creative looks forward to sharing more of their adventures with you soon.
At Conch Creative we love meeting couples from all over the world, who come to Ambergris Caye – our jewel in the Caribbean Sea – to pledge their love on tropical beaches. For many couples, this is a once in a lifetime event, for others – well – they might have practised once or twice previously.
One of our couples married, here in Belize, for the second time after being apart for over ten years. The romance of each and every ceremony is always unique and we just feel so honoured to be able to be part of such an important event in people’s lives.
That is why Conch Creative will be sharing some of our favourite moments from weddings with you on this blog, so that you get the chance to share in the magic that we are so lucky to experience as part of our work.
The 10th of October this year was a big day for weddings in San Pedro. We heard of at least 10 weddings that day. At Conch Creative, we have a strict policy of only shooting one wedding per day so that we can devote our attention to our couple, so we were delighted to be part of Peri and Bob’s wedding at Ramon’s Village.
Often we are the only guests at romantic and intimate ceremonies and so our duties can be varied. One of our jobs this time was to keep a very nervous and excited groom busy, while his beautiful bride prepared. We suggested this uniquely tropical way of announcing their special and memorable date.
We left Bob unattended briefly so that we could focus on Peri’s preparations and he managed a sneak peek. Luckily we were right there to catch him being a cheeky groom to be.
Peri & Bob had originally wanted to have sunset photographs, but we explained that the sun sets on the other side of the island. The only solution was to get a golf cart and take them for a spin to the other side before the sun set. The ever helpful crew at Ramon’s Village were kind enough to prepare a golf cart suitably for their journey.
….and off we went. Luckily there are two of us at Conch Creative so one could drive and the other could run behind to take pictures.
We couldn’t think of a more unusual setting for wedding photography. For those of you familiar with San Pedro, you will recognise this as the ‘croc pond’. This is an area where historically there had been illegal feeding of the endangered American Crocodile, but even now there are a lot of crocs just hangin’ around. While we were there, Peri and Bob were lucky enough to see two of these amazing animals. Now that really is a day to remember!
** To find out more about the endangered American Crocodile in Belize, please check out the ACES website
Photographing groups at weddings can be an art form in itself. First you have to catch them while they are still upright. It’s great if they are a little bit merry, but as the party progresses, things can get a bit messy. One of the lovely gentlemen in this shot fell out of the tree three times before giving up.
Of course Conch Creative is known for their fun and playful approach to wedding photography and understands that a wedding celebration should be a party! So, we encourage our groups to let their hair down and …well…climb all over each other.
…because we believe that is how you capture memories that you really will want to share with your family and friends and that will make you smile for years to come.
Sometimes even when we do slightly more traditional group shots, the architecture can be an inspiration.
Or sometimes the the beautiful scenery can create opportunities for unique and special group photographs.
Conch Creative believes that the couple should be the centre of attention on their special day, so we don’t always insist that groups look at the camera.
Ultimately, the most important thing is that everyone in the group looks relaxed and happy and Conch Creative will go to any lengths to make sure that happens!
Conch Creative loves cake and as wedding photographers we get to see some beautiful cakes. So much effort is put into making these cakes tropical, fabulous and delicious. Although we are usually pretty greedy when it comes to cake, we’ve decided to share some of our cakes with you.
These blue cupcakes were such an original and pretty treat for wedding guests.
A tropical cake in paradise.
This cute and romantic cake featured at one of the most colourful weddings Conch Creative has ever attended.
This beautiful cake was presented against such a gorgeous colour. It really made the cake even more spectacular.
You may notice droplets on the window in this picture. The lovely couple did not let the rain spoil their day and this cake decorated with fresh flowers and seashells kept everyone in the tropical wedding mood.
Conch Creative would like to thank the bakers and chefs who produced these edible pieces of art. If you see your cake here and would like us to mention your name, just get in touch and we’d be happy to let everyone know that you were the cake’s creator.
Belize is a land of beauty and Belizean people are some of the most beautiful in the world. In fact, beauty pageants are a big part of the local culture and all communities in Belize have their own, very special pageants to mark important events.
The opening of Lobster Season in Belize definitely counts as an important event. ‘Lobster Fests’ are held in various parts of the country including San Pedro, Caye Caulker and Placencia. Every year Caye Caulker crowns a Miss Caye Caulker Lobster Fest.
In 2009, we visited Caye Caulker Lobster Fest to make a fun video, which can be viewed here . While we were there we took some still photographs too and happened to capture an image of the 2009 Miss Caye Caulker Lobster Fest, Ms Lexee Marin, as we wandered around. Caye Caulker Lobster Fest is a wonderful day out and there is so much to see, smell, eat and enjoy. In fact, we enjoyed the festival so much that we decided that Conch Creative would offer to sponsor a prize for the 2010 pageant winner.
Ms Stephanie Arce won the title of Miss Caye Caulker Lobster Fest 2010/2011 and we very much enjoyed collaborating with Belizean designer, Emil Alvarez, to create a young, bright and quite beautiful set of portfolio shots for her. She was a joy to work with and a good sport too. When she found she couldn’t make it across the sand in her high heels, she was happy to get some assistance.
We love taking photographs of beautiful people, places and animals but we always remember that beauty can be found in some of the least likely places – and it truly is in the eye of the beholder. The final image is one of our absolute favourites. We spotted this gentleman walking along with his lobsters during the Caye Caulker Lobster Fest and thought that the way he wore his life’s experiences were truly beautiful. We didn’t know who he was, but a mutual friend saw this image and identified him as Tito. Thank you Tito, for giving us one of our favourite images from Caye Caulker Lobster Fest. We leave you for now – with Tito.
Conch Creative believes that celebrations should be fun and we always have a great time with our couples. We are in a unique position, as wedding photographers, to be part of so many different ceremonies with so many different kinds of people. So we know how important it is to get to know them well enough that they can feel comfortable and relaxed with us as we document their important day.
Sometimes we are able to capture a playful candid shot.
We love it when ‘brides go wild’.
We said ‘Fall into his arms gracefully and trust that he’ll catch you’.
Of course as wedding photographers, we are always happy to oblige our customers. When this lovely couple asked to be able to zap each other with lightning…we were more than happy to make that happen too.
Weddings are so special.
Weddings in Belize are even more special.
Celebrate! Enjoy! Indulge! And most of all – Have fun!
We love weddings and feel privileged to be part of such an important event. They are romantic and wonderful for the couple and as photographers, we do everything possible to make the photography experience fun and enjoyable. When there are children involved, this is even more important. Some kids are shy and some just love the attention, so we take our time and get to know them. We have a lot of laughs along the way.
Waiting for Mum to be made beautiful can be a little bit boring, so why not have fun with the hairspray!
When we have a larger group of children it can be tricky to get them to all coordinate for a photographic moment.
Sometimes the children are so beyond cute that we just feel obliged to capture them in the moment.
This little cherub was a guest at a wedding at the fabulous Phoenix.
We were recently captured ourselves by local photographer Elbert Greer. Elbert is known for his brilliant bird photography and Maya even contributed to his amazing book, Birdwatching with Bubba 2.5. So here is a behind the scenes photograph as promised courtesy of Elbert himself.
This couple came to San Pedro and had their ceremony at the stunning Las Terrazas with their children and everyone had a great time even if the weather was rainy and uncooperative. The jumping off the dock shot is a favourite for couples, probably because it seems meaningful, but more likely because it is so much fun doing it.
Not to be outdone, their adorable children ensured that they gave us fantastic photo opportunities. This was taken inside the lovely O Restaurant at Las Terrazas after the rain had made us all take cover.
There is nothing like catching that magic opportunity when children do adorable and spontaneous things.
These two were cooling their heels on a hot day before a wedding at the beautiful Caribbean Villas.
Of course a flower girl has a big responsibility, but that doesn’t stop them from having some fun before it is time to do a very important job.
We’ve always wondered what secret they were sharing in this shot. Looks a bit cheeky.
When duty called, she did her job like a real professional at this very romantic beach wedding.
She was a real princess.
So, as you can see, not all weddings are just about grown ups. If you would like to see more of our work, please check out our Facebook page for our newest images.
