Cuba!


Wow! What an amazing experience it was to visit Cuba! We were so excited when we met adventurous bride & groom Yendi+Pat and they told us their plans for a destination wedding there. And when we arrived in the country several days early, it was everything we imagined and more.

We spent our first few days in Havana being tourists, taking in the sites. And the colours!

Such contrasts - the grand architecture and its decay... We loved shooting the rich textures of the city streets in Black&White (we got a little obsessed with doorways)...

One of our favourite things to do was walk (and shoot!) along the Malecón.
These two images show the Castillo el Morro in the distance, where we shot a fantabulicious B+G session with Pat and Yendi. Images from their amazing destination wedding up next!

BEAUTIFUL images! I love the composites, and especially the pictures with people in them. The people, and especially the children, really do tell a story juxtaposed against those cars and doors, not to mention the beautiful and not-so-beautiful backdrops.

Can't wait to see the wedding pictures!

Hi Chris and Lynn

Man oh Man Chris and Lynn you two have moved on beautifully from your taking pictures of lowly Lightkeepers on the Coast. Your pictures are amazing - I will let my daughter know about your Cuban pictures as her and her guy biked (as in pedeled)Cuba in December and they will love your images.

Wonderful work Kathi Cape Beale
