With the One and Only Daniela & Laze! Yes she is beautiful, and he is awesome, but I’m thinking this wedding on stunning Hayman Island was hijacked by a completely crazy bunch of people… their family and friends! I’ve photographed a few weddings, somewhere north of 500, and I can say I’ve not seen such party animals start so early! Macedonian dancing before entre is even served… now that’s what I call a celebration. Yes the weather was testing us, with torrential downpours one minute, to heat and humidity so high our cameras fogged up constantly. Did anyone complain? No way we were all just so happy to be there sharing this great day with Daniela & Laze.

Now when we look back we can say how lucky we were as the entire resort was so severely damaged by cyclone Debbie just 2 weeks later, it won’t reopen until mid 2018. When I think about all the great staff there over the 3 days, I’m saddened about the loss of jobs. After the One and Only Resort does reopen though, I’m sure Daneila & Laze will be back with their family and friends sometime in the future to relive what was a great celebration of the joining of two fabulous people. If so… can we come too?!?

With so many more great images to come, here are but a few I took on the Fuji GFX50s medium format camera thanks to Camera Pro.
