One day closer

Yes it is now one day away of my wife and my wedding anniversary! I am so happy that we found each other through the sea. As we have been to so many weddings, I sometimes like to reflect on our own wedding. Destination wedding in the heat of Mexico was dreamy. The blue water and the medicinal effect the humid air has on our northern skin.

One week down south with our friends and families. Everyone of them traveling for our wedding and we couldn’t be more thankful. From Nova Scotia to New Zealand our friends all came.

Here Kathy and I got to share this big day with them but mostly with each other.

Happy almost 2 years babe!

Bianca & Scott – Kelowna BC

The second of our back to back destination weddings was seriously amazing!  Kelowna B.C. is easily one of Canada’s hottest spots.   Sometimes (more often than not) the universe is at play to bring two people together and have them fall in love.  These two met on the other side of the world in Germany, where Bianca is from.  These two travelled back and forth between Germany and Canada often until Bianca moved to Kelowna for a little while!  These two […]

Getting close with the bride and groom at Heritage Park

Joelle & Keith Calgary AB

Our first of back to back destination weddings!  We have know Joelle and Keith for a while and were super excited to be a part of their special day.  Every detail was thought of and the day went off perfectly as planned. First we started getting ready at an amazing house on a hill overlooking downtown Calgary. Then we went to capture the first look, at the beautiful Heritage Park in Calgary.  If you ever have a sunny afternoon off in […]

Kristen & Matthias Trash The Dress

I have always loved the trash the dress session. People often ask: “doesn’t the dress get ruined?”. Well most of the time the wedding dress gets way dirtier on the wedding day than a TTD session. The salt water and the sand work together as a cleaning agent and removes dirt from the wedding day! These sessions bring out real passion as there are fewer people around the and the couple can have really personal moments! Kristen and Matthias really […]

Kristen & Matthias Jan 13 – 2016 Laughing Waters Jamaica

Destinations weddings are simply amazing.  This is how I started my photography career when I lived in the Mayan Riviera.  We met Kristen and Matthias quite a while ago with their canoe now and did their engagement photos found here.  The two of them invited us to come down to Jamaica and continue capturing their moments.  When you hire AJ Enns Photography, destination weddings are the same process except the bride and groom cover the travel and accommodations.  This usually […]

The couple sharing a passionate kiss on the oceans edge

Kristen & Matthias Sunrise Session

It was around 5 o’clock when I got up on the second day during our stay at the Gran Bahai Principe resort.  I needed to ensure that I had the correct time for when the sun was at the perfect spot.  So I headed out with my camera while everyone else was asleep.  I hung out at the location I had chosen the day before and found that optimal time.  I met up with the couple later that day told […]

The groom and his boys with cigars

The Boys Club

It was just after girls started dancing during the reception that Matthias and his crew stepped out back to enjoy cigars and reflect on his big day. Enjoying a cigar on your wedding day, while sitting on the edge of a villa looking out onto the Caribbean Ocean is an experience that will be very hard to forget

Kissing on the pier at sunrise in Jamaica

Home from Jamaica

Well we just got back from Jamaica for Kristen and Matthias’ wedding. I have already started the task of editing but came home with a “few” hard drives of images. It truly was a great trip. From the airport leaving Winnipeg till AJ’s parent’s picking them up with winter jackets for the -35 weather. The only thing hotter than the weather down there were these two love birds!

Silvie and Lincoln looking striking while sitting waste deep in a cenote in Mexico

Silvie & Lincoln at Playa del Carmen Mexico

It’s not every day I get to photograph a sunrise session and trash the dress session in the humidity of the Mayan Riviera! It also just happened to be my biggest photography influence. We started out just north of town where the land just jets out enough to see the sun rise spectacularly rise above the Caribbean Ocean. Silvie looked flawless (as usual) as we started to photograph along the beach. The waves came and went as the sun slowly […]
