A dose of Tulum bohemia, a dash of Harbor Island flair, Kamalame is a dreamy island retreat and an incredibly personal testament to one family’s love for the Bahamas.
I was super excited to come back from my European summer vacation and have Rachel and Rogan’s private and intimate Kamalame Cay be my first wedding for the new season. It’s only fitting that the mode of transportation would be a private seaplane which took me right onto one of Kamalame’s inland beaches and which ferried me back home to Nassau at the end of the day.
In spite of Hurricane Matthew having passed over the Bahamas, with severe damage to the island of Andros, only weeks before the big day, you can see from the beautiful locations of the portraits that the resort was fully up and running and in gorgeous condition for a wedding of any size.
How else to start an island wedding off than with a little adventure – yes, Rachel got the golf cart stuck in the sand as we drove around looking for locations for our shoot and lucky for me I just had to document the event so poor Rachel was stuck digging out – or trying to.
Rachel and Rogan are such a low key, fun and warm couple and I loved spending a few hours with them – it was the first time that I had a groom helping to dress his wife for the wedding – without really seeing what she looked like until she turned around. An interesting “first look” session. But what a wonderful memory for both of them.
They are both killer fisherman and have a great passion for bonefishing which is one of the sports that Andros is famous for – notice the custom made flies in the gift box from bride to groom. I love it when the small things have so much meaning.
