kristen and brad in turks

i know you guys are about tired of me posting images from turks, but here is One Last Post about our time there!  a big reason to take us with you for your destination wedding…. you get pictures of Everything.  below are images from our “non-wedding day” time with kristin and brad!

2015-02-12_0001.jpgon thursday afternoon kristin and brad’s immediate family and us jumped in a van and headed to a beach near blue haven.  we got some fun, casual shots of them together!  i highly recommend this because its different than the wedding day which can be rushed and is more formal.

2015-02-12_0030.jpgbasically, they stab their brain, wait for them to die, then pull them out.
2015-02-12_0031.jpgthen someone eats the spinal cord. i am not making this up.  supposedly its an aphrodisiac.  for the record i spelled that right first try.

    Susan Korshin - We loved having both Jamie and Richie with us the entire wedding weekend!! They were so much fun to party with and they managed to capture all our great memories without bothering anyone about posing for pictures. I can’t even imagine how we are going to select the pics that we like most-there are only about 3000 to look through! I HIGHLY recommend both of them if you need any type of photographers. They are fun, artistic, reliable and talented, what else could you ask for?!
