Hot August days & nights in Croatia with Katie & Tim

Even the word Dubrovnik brings up pretty exotic ideas in my imagination. I was there once back in 2012 with friends on an Eastern European roadie, so when Katie & Tim dropped the invite on me to shoot their wedding in Croatia this past summer I was speechless. From the moment they said go, it was some extensive planning as we’d be taking our 4-month son on this adventure with us. He loved the trip, my wife loved the chance to explore a new country, and I got to put Katie & Tim in front of the camera in arguably one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. We arrived a week early to do my scouting, and get everything in place for the shoot. Then, to honour a previously set shoot, I had to fly back to Canada for 72hrs before hopping on a pair of red-eye flights to get back to Dubrovnik with some days to relax before the wedding shoot. August in Croatia is beautiful. Hot as….lets just say really really hot, but with the water of the Adriatic Sea at your toes it all seems to work just right. On the wedding day, it was a game of keeping out of the sun for too long, loads of cool drinks, and AC breaks. We did the reveal close to the hotel in an awesome patch of trees on the shore, then off to the old city to the spots I had found during my scouting mission. The trick in Dubrovnik in the middle of the busy tourist season is to avoid the masses of people swarming everywhere. It’s not easy to do, but not impossible either. Then on to their ceremony at the most insanely gorgeous venue – Sponzi Palace- really was out of a dream. From there back to the hotel for an outdoors reception with the breezes coming off the sea. Ana & her team from Dubrovnik Luxury Weddings pulled everything off without a hitch and kept things running smoothly. Such a fun day, tons of fun memories, and a trip that will go down in my books as a best of the best. Katie & Tim, if you’re reading this: Thank you. dsc_9024 dsc_5514 dsc_9058 dsc_5650 dsc_5565 dsc_6359 dsc_5519 dsc_9243 dsc_9216 dsc_9323 dsc_9265 dsc_9305 dsc_9300 dsc_9355 dsc_9223 dsc_9106 dsc_5599 dsc_9124 dsc_9110 dsc_5591 dsc_9383 dsc_9462 dsc_5696 dsc_5729 dsc_5710 dsc_9506 dsc_5757 dsc_9710 dsc_9733 dsc_5853 dsc_9793 dsc_5872 dsc_9764 dsc_5884 dsc_5889 dsc_5899 dsc_9853 dsc_9861 dsc_9892 dsc_5941 dsc_0009 dsc_0032 dsc_0078 dsc_6070 dsc_6088 dsc_6112 dsc_6255 dsc_6186 dsc_6233 dsc_6222 dsc_0159 dsc_0118 dsc_0111 dsc_6259 dsc_6200 dsc_0181 dsc_0267 dsc_0280 dsc_0289 dsc_0312 dsc_6285 dsc_6378 dsc_6320 dsc_0383 dsc_0396 dsc_0426 dsc_0459 dsc_0502 dsc_0587 dsc_6550 dsc_6562 dsc_6453
