Taylor and Jessica’s Bahamas Destination Wedding Ceremony in the Cloisters at the One & Only Ocean Club

Though I enjoy grand scale Bahamas destination weddings, I also have a fondness for photographing small intimate weddings — just a few friends and family members in a gorgeous outdoor setting on a beautiful summer morning.

And what better location then the Cloisters at the One & Only Ocean Club, Paradise Island Bahamas.

(OK, it was wickedly hot and I was dripping, from moving around in the sun with two cameras carried on each shoulder — one a massive zoom sports lens, the other a smaller zoom; thankfully the bride and groom were as cool as a cucumber! And the wedding photographs turned out…well judge for yourself.)

I also found this unsolicited review that Jess and Taylor posted online:

My fiancĂ© and I were a bit nervous planning a destination wedding at a venue we had never been to, and with vendors we had never met in person. However our photographer Mark Da Cunha completely eased our worry throughout the entire process. Prior to the wedding he did a great job of coordinating the “first look” spot, as well as getting to know who were like as a couple, and what kinds of pictures we definitely wanted him to capture. During the wedding he did a fantastic job directing me and my groom, as well as all of the other guests, in order to get some great shots. He did not waste any time! All of our wedding guests raved about him afterwards. When we received the final album of pictures we couldn’t have been happier! Words cannot describe how beautiful the wedding pictures turned out. There are very few moments like this in life where the photos you take today will be looked back at for the rest of your life, and we are so glad that Mark was the one to capture these moments. A talented, passionate, personable, fun, and professional guy. Thank you so much Mark! – Jess & Taylor

Thanks so much Jess and Taylor.
