Picture Perfect in Paradise

  Earlier this year, I was hired to accompany Bhavika and Neil to Dreams La Romana in the Dominican Republic to capture their week-long wedding celebration… And this group knew how to celebrate! I had only met with them a few times during their consultations but even from then, I could tell that this was going to be a great group of people to work with. Both sides of the family were...Read More

It''s the Most Wonderful Time... of the Year!'

Tags: Weddings, photography

The weather getting warmer and the days are getting longer. It can only mean one thing... Wedding season has begun!  Call me a sap, but I love shooting weddings. Love is in the air, everyone is dressed to the nines and it is just a really happy and pleasant work environment. A sixteen hour shift on your feet would seem like an ordeal to you, but not to me. I think I am one of the only people ...Read More

Love Crosses Oceans

  If you watch the news, you know how cruel and ugly our world can be, but once in a while, you hear a story that warms your heart so much that it makes you actually believe in destiny. Kathy and George met in Greece while she was on holiday with friends. Out of all of the places on Earth she could have traveled to that summer and all of the people she could have met, she met this one singl...Read More

Dubai: Las Vegas of the Middle East

Tags: journey, photography,

    I have been to Vegas numerous times, so I thought I had an idea of what “over the top” is. I was mistaken. Dubai is a place that you cannot truly understand until you get here. In addition, you cannot really appreciate it unless a local shows you the hidden, off the beaten path gems. This is where my old friend Carlo came in. Carlo moved here 8 years ago befor...Read More

A City Made of Gold

  First of all, I have to apologise to all of my regular readers. I have been moving through Asia so quickly that I have barely had time to sleep, let alone time to update the blog. I am in Saigon, 3 weeks into my trip and I have finally found a small amount of time to write the first entry for this year’s expedition! Dubai is a city quite literally made of money. Everything is first ...Read More

Keeping up with the Markarians

Tags: Andrew Pateras,North America, Photography, Travel, Weddings,

    In January, I was flown to Los Angeles to capture what was to be an epic Armenian celebration. Guests had flown in from as far as Dubai and Iran to attend this opulent event! Linda and Carlo have known each other since they were just children. Fate would bring them together years later as they tied the knot on a beautiful, sunny California day. My morning started as some of my ...Read More

  Getting amped up for wedding season got me looking through my unsorted video… Then that got me looking through massive amounts of images… Since I was too busy this winter to take off for another 5 month expedition, I figured I would reflect on my last three instead. What was produced was a frankenstien creation that you will see here… My travel photography promo v...Read More

Stir it Up

Tags: Andrew pateras, Caribbean, weddings, engagements, photography, travel, weddings

  Over the last three years, I have become somewhat of a destination wedding specialist. In November, I had the privilege of joining Angie and Shawn in Jamaica to capture their nuptials. Angie’s sweet disposition is a perfect complement to Shawn’s hilarious sense of humour and infectious laugh. Having never traveled to Jamaica, I was excited to check off my 45th country and to...Read More
