To tell of Esther and Kenny’s relationship is to tell an international love story spanning over half a decade, full of the drama and excitement of uncertainties, and chance reunions, and jet-setting between Vancouver and New York and Dallas … and confessions of love in a Chinatown alleyway. When we were around them, we couldn’t help but feel their spark and energy, and the sense of peace that comes when a couple is completely vulnerable and comfortable and in tune with each other. Their laughter is contagious, their love genuine, their future bright. We were honored to be photographers for their wedding. 🙂

Esther’s white silk flower in her hair was an elegant detail for this tropical destination wedding.
During their first look, Esther and Kenny were surrounded by gorgeous flowers and lush plants.
The rich, magenta color of these bridesmaid dresses looked beautiful against these tropical surroundings.

We love a barefooted little ring bearer in a suit.
The amazing Clara C was their wedding singer!
Their vows were incredibly genuine and heartfelt …
