It's true, in a blink of an eye the day you've been planning and waiting on is behind you. All that's left are once in a lifetime memories captured in photos, that's why one of the most crucial decisions in wedding planning is choosing the righ...
t photographer, and Sammy was PHENOMENAL.
We had a destination wedding on the lush island of St Lucia. We knew we wanted a photographer we could meet and speak with ahead of time. We didn't want to have to choose one on the resort that we barely had time to research. Sammy's work is beautiful, she was organized right from the beginning, and provided us with a timeline in advance. Best of all she's genuine and passionate in catering to her couples needs.
I noticed that as soon as Sammy arrived to St Lucia she started scoping out the best locations taking into consideration the people, lighting, colors, and importance of the instance she was capturing. From the rehearsal dinner, to morning and night of the wedding day Sammy relentlessly ran around in 90 degree heat, leaped over ledges, and stood in bushes potentially infested with baseball size spiders, all to catch every significant moment. Most importantly she did this inconspicuously. She wasn't right in our faces, or in the way of guest, yet she captured everything.
Our decision to go with Whims and Joy was further validated when in a wedding group shot with SIXTEEN people, from behind her lens, Sammy caught a thin hair binder on one of my bridesmaids that didn't fit with the shot. WOW. Her attention to detail, along with creativity, is insanely good.
If you have a destination, or local, wedding you will not go wrong with Whims and Joy. We love our photos. Not only do we have beautiful professional shots, we have candid shots of pure laughter, everybody crying, bridesmaids furiously fanning me while I'm laid out on my bed in between shots when I didn't think anyone was looking, spinning, dancing, more laughing and crying, toasts, groomsmen and bridesmen drinking anything insight, she caught everything.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I still get teary eyed when I flip though our photos, but that's the emotion that great wedding photos are suppose to give you. Thank you, Sammy!!!
