Grand Palladium Montego Bay Jamaica - David and Nadine's Wedding

This was my second time shooting at The Grand Palladium Resort in Montego Bay Jamaica, and I loved every minute of it. When you have great weather, nice scenery and beautiful people in front of your camera, you can't go wrong. Nadine and David were awesome and fun to work with. Their bridal party and guests made me feel right at home, and I made instant friendships as usual. I'm loving these images, I hope you do too.

I also made a VLOG which you can watch here ANWAN AND NADINE VLOG

 

Castle Hotel Orlando and Crystal Ballroom on the Lake, Altamonte Springs FL | Andrew and Jany's Wedding

Just got back from Orlando Florida, from shooting Andrew and Jany's beautiful wedding at The Crystal Ballroom on the Lake. They did their first look at the Castle Hotel Orlando, and this place is so beautiful. I'm really happy with the shots we got. The poor groom got the flu the night before the wedding, and was sick all day. I visited him in his room in the morning and he was laying in bed in the fetal position. Thankfully he made it through the important parts of the day, and by looking at the pics, you'd never guess he was that sick.

Now I met Jany back in May 2011 when I was doing a lot of fashion photography. I took a trip to Orlando to shoot a few models so that I could get some new backdrops in my portfolio. Jany was one of those models. We spoke over email and Jany invited her friend (and bridesmaid Melissa) to join in the shoot. Apparently she didn't trust me. You can view that shoot HERE. The shoot started off rough with Jany being so skeptical, but it turned out amazing and we ended up having so much fun, that 5 1/2 years later, she asked me to shoot her wedding. So I guess I wasn't sketchy after all. 

I hope you guys enjoy Andrew and Jany's wedding photos, feel free to leave a comment below.

Thanks guys,

Derrel Ho-Shing Photography's Best of 2016

With 2016 wrapping up, I thought I’d go back and reflect on the past year. It was a fun and eventful year, shooting destination weddings in Jamaica and Cuba, but the biggest moment of the year was the birth of my son Omari back in June. I'll never forget that moment I first held him in my arms. Truly the highlight of the year. But wedding-wise, I was fortunate enough to work with some amazing couples, and some of the best vendors which helped make my photos as epic as they are. I hope your 2016 was good as mine, but I hope 2017 is even better.  Here are my top moments and highlights from 2016. Let me know which photo was your favourite.

Enjoy
