JOS photographers frequently travels shooting destination weddings world wide.
Caro + Ben Chateau Wedding - France - Montpellier
We didn’t understand what we signed up for with Caro and Ben’s destination wedding until we started driving deep into the south of France on an ancient Spanish road leading into the Madieres valley. Speckles of golden sunlight flickered through passing trees with faint impressions of massive rock cliffs, rich greenery and in the distance a chateau nested in the cliffs above a “meandering” calm river. A feeling of deep peace started to overcome us. Time slowed down. Our escort, Lucie (the bride’s cousin) said to us in the most sweet charming french accent, “You know… we are headed to a very special place.” We will never forget the soft smile on her face as she said, “This… is the beginning of the end of the world.”
Emily + Pete Villa Cimbrone Wedding - Ravello - Amalfi Coast - Italy
If you’re looking for an adventure wedding and you are in love with Italy, look no further than Villa Cimbrone. It’s the jewel of Ravello, Italy along the Amalfi Coast. It is an enchanting 12th century building nestled on cliffs overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s only accessible by foot along a panoramic stone path from the center of Ravello. This enchanting villa has castle-like architecture, stone fireplaces, tiled floors, antiques, oil paintings, cliff-side gardens, and friendly faces that greet you with the most exquisite feeling. The ambience here is like stepping into a medieval poem. Having your reception dinner in their medieval Crypt will transport you and your guests back in time.
Nikki + Paul Caribbean Wedding - Portofino Beach Resort - Belize
Every time we commit to shooting a destination wedding we dive in deep whole heartedly into the entire experience. We become one with all of the guests and ebb and flow with every move and feeling we see. “Going all in” is really the only way we feel we can truly tell the full story. When Nikki and Paul invited us to be part of their Belize wedding experience with 50 of their best friends we knew we were in for a serious adventure. Like Nikki’s words describe so well, “You are my north, south, my east and west. May our love forever guide us through life’s unknown.” They lead us through some of this beautiful unknown which we will never forget.
Niki + Amit Indian Wedding - Sunriver Resort - Central Oregon
Niki and Amit are two people who literally glow with life. They are are something like a river that gives and receives and every time we find ourselves in their presence everything flows effortlessly. Their wedding was nothing short of a real journey. We were “all in” with them and even though we were in central Oregon at Sunriver Resort we felt like we went to India for 3 full days of celebration. The heat was intense. The colors were on fire. And the love shared between everyone was something we will never EVER forget
Faye + David PARIS ENGAGEMENT - LUXEMBOURG GARDENS - FRANCE - LOVE SHOOT
When Tree and I met Faye and David over Skype we immediately fell in love with their charming affection for one another and life itself. When you hear them speak you can feel the love in the texture of their voices and see such genuine meaning in their gestures that communicate a true sensitivity about their “love for life.” Our journey to Paris for their love shoot and chateau wedding in Normandie was the beginning of one of the most meaningful adventures in our career, and Faye and David were like two poets in love wandering through one of the most romantic cities of the world.

Amanda + August Seattle Wedding - Salty's Restaurant - Alki Beach
Amanda and August’s destination wedding in Seattle was one of those epic summer days filled with bright blue skies and clouds that look like oil paintings. Both of them love to travel and on their wedding day we explored many corners of Seattle. From the Hayatt House, a flower covered rooftop, strolling through bustling markets, the EMP museum and a fairy boat ride across the bay to Salty’s restaurant with award winning views of Seattle’s Skyline. Everywhere we went people celebrated their wedding day including an entire Indian wedding party who decided to circle around them dancing and singing.
Logan + Mason Kauai Wedding - Private Estate - Hawaii
Logan and Mason’s Kauai wedding en-framed by majestic eucalyptus trees felt like massive arms opening up from all their friends and family surrounding them. Emotions and laughter touched everyone. Tree knew Logan way back when she was a little girl along with a very special community of friends from Ojai, California. So being able to both attend this wedding and photograph it meant the world to us. When “The Hands Blessing” was spoken while Logan and Mason touched hands it felt like there was a flash of their whole lives being adorned in one instance. Gorgeous!
