Sophie & Phil had originally booked me to shoot their wedding here in Toronto. With Sophie at school in Montreal and Phil running a business in Toronto it was a little too much for them to plan a large wedding at the same time. They decided to change everything and cancel their plans of a local wedding and book everything on the brand new NCL Epic cruise ship. It was a very different experience shooting a wedding on a cruise ship. As big as the ship is, many of the spaces are small.
As soon as I knew where we were going I started my research. In St Maarten there is an airport where planes pass insanely close to the beach. There are hundreds of photos and videos online showing planes passing feet above the heads of people. I knew exactly the photo we had to get. One I had never seen before. I timed our trip around the island to get us there in plenty of time for the main event. We had hundreds of others around us watching but most were kind enough to give some extra space to the newly weds.
A video, just for proof. If I didn’t have this I know there would be a lot of people who would think it is all fake.
