Sartorial Loves and Being Shoeless

27.5.15

Light rompers are so great. I really can't get enough of them. But it seems there are a lot of things I can't get enough of: fringe, kimonos, lace, dresses.....okay pretty much everything. I think it'd be easier to list my sartorial dislikes *like Uggs and Crocs* rather than my likes.  But back to my point, rompers are great.  Really great.

I especially loved the purple and blue mix on this one.

Also, can I just please apologize for the lack of shoes in this post? I spent little time actually wearing shoes, but more than that my tripod wouldn't fit in my suitcase. Therefore, I was limited to shooting by placing my camera on things that happened to be around - which was needless to say a little awkward. Ah the troubles of being in paradise, am I right?

Ruffled and Backless Dress

It was so warm and lovely and I was frankly really excited to finally wear all my lovely new Spell purchases.  It's been so cold, and I was just itching to get a chance to wear all this pretty stuff.

Honestly, what's more perfect than a backless ruffled dress for a day spent at the beach and the pool?  Nothing.  Except maybe one of those delicious mojitos they offered.  Those were amazing.  As were the Jamaican patties...

...wait, why did I come back again?

Adventuring in Kimonos

I shared a hotel room with two lovely ladies: the Groom's sister and cousin. The first was the sweetest woman, and the second was the coolest, so I felt pretty lucky. They both enjoyed staying up later than I *I've never been one for staying up late as I love being awake and having adventures during the day*  So, that meant that early in the morning I tried to quietly get dressed and vacate the room so they could continue sleeping.

It also meant that I was awake and walking around the resort earlier than a lot of people.  But I kind of loved this time. The beaches were clear of people, and the only ones awake and bustling about were the lovely Jamaican people themselves.  It meant I could walk about and explore areas, and take photos, with relatively few people caring about what I was doing.

Though to be fair, I think by this time I had earned myself the "crazy photographer lady" title as on the wedding day and the day before during the detail shots I was both a contortionist and throwing little ants out of my shot. People generally just gave me a wide berth, after all I might snap at any second. Even the ants did not escape my wrath.

Peace, Hearts, and Cupcakes

Me and My Girl headed out on a Queen St. West date *for those of you not familiar with Toronto, it's one of many lovely neighborhoods with shops, cafes, and all kinds of other fabulous things* When asked what she wanted to wear, my Girl reached for her new favorite thing - her "peace dress" from as she calls it.

She's kind of obsessed with her new Melijoe dress.  She loves all the colors, and the hearts pattern, but mostly she just adores the peace crochet cutout on the back.  And she's constantly posing to show it off.  Except when faced with a chocolate cupcake. Then nothing except two chocolate cupcakes could rival for her attention.

I love the dress for the fact that it's a piece sign and y'all know I'm a big 'ol hippie.  But despite how intricate it looks, it's also really simply structured which means that it never gets in the way of all her shenanigans. Or cupcakes.  'Cause you know, priorities.

Destination Wedding Photographer Wear

The day of the wedding came and I got dressed and ready to rock 'n roll in a simple white tee, and loose Arnhem pants.  I thought this would be the perfect outfit for a twelve hour day of shooting.  Two braids keep the hair out of my way, the hat keeps the sun off my head, and the white tee and loose pants are respectable yet light.

Little did I know how humid it would be!  We all pretty much sweat through our clothes.  And after my pants got wet from the ocean, I decided to suddenly bend down. Now since they were wet, they didn't move with me and split right down the seam!

Thank goodness the lovely Bride, whose hotel room was right next to us, lent me a pair of shorts to rock the rest of the shoot in.  That's all I care about - the shots.  And boy did we get some stellar ones.  I'll be sure to post a link and let you know once they're done and up on my site.

'Cause this couple + this location = photo gold!

Price of Admission to Jamaica

First real day in Jamaica.  It was an exciting one let me tell you.  First I discovered that my external hard drive had been stolen from my checked suitcase, then I fell and broke the glass top of a table in my room, paid for it, and decided to head to the beach where nothing could happen to me.

Until I got in the water and got stung by a jellyfish in the first three minutes.

Seriously right?! Honestly, I just had to laugh, because to have all this happen in a span of hours was a little ridiculous. Hilarious and ridiculous. I breathed, had a little moment, then moved on. Things happen and there's nothing you can do about it.

After treating the sting, I went back to swim for an hour, and decided to just focus on my beautiful surroundings. Just chalked it all up to the price of being in stunning Jamaica.
