Mike and Mindy

Would you believe that two people paid to fly me down to Aruba to shoot their destination wedding? I still can’t, but I sure am glad to have friends like Mike and Mindy.

The three of us went to college together, and I became pals with Mike in 1999 (yikes!) after we discovered a shared affinity for automobiles. The two of them reached out to me in February while I was still at DINFOS, and the rest is history.

Mike and Mindy held their destination wedding at the Riu Palace, which was an awesome venue to host their family and close friends for the week. Bonus: they flew Amy down as a second shooter and my honored guest!

PS- Yes, I did climb up into that cabana to bolt a strobe on to one of the umbrella ribs.

Kudos to Mike for keeping it a secret that his father, Frank, was going to officiate the wedding. Very nice touch my friend.

Since the wedding had fewer guests than a State-side event, we decided to set up a small portrait booth after dinner. Let’s just say that this was one of the most G-Rated photos I could find out of this bunch of characters…

A BIG THANKS goes out to Mike and Mindy for flying me and Amy down to Aruba to shoot their amazing destination wedding. We had a blast, and would do it over again in a heartbeat!

AND, this is only one of four galleries, so stay tuned!

    Nick- again words will never be able to express our gratitude in not only how you were able to capture our special day(s) and tell their story, but how you basically took the bull by the horns and kept everything on track the whole time. I would recommend you to everyone- you are getting nothing short of perfection when you decide on Nick Strocchia as your photographer. It was the smartest decision we made while planning our wedding.
