Spain Travel Photography – Phone Images

In September 2011 I traveled to Mallorca, Spain to photograph a wedding. Bryon tagged along and we added a few days before and after to enjoy some site seeing and relaxing. These are images I took with my old Android camera phone. These images are not taken with a professional camera.

Bryon and I arrived 5 days early to stop over on one of our favorite islands, Menorca. It was our 14 year anniversary. We stayed in the Cala Galdana area at The Audax Hotel.  It was a cute hotel, with great service. I loved the green accents in the rooms!

After the wedding at Cap Rocat we went to the St. Jordi area where a few family members joined us. My niece enjoying her chocolate gelato!

After a couple days in St. Jordi, Mallorca we flew to Barcelona and stopped over for 2 nights before heading back to San Francisco. So we took a whirlwind tour of the city, one day on foot and the next on a red site seeing bus. Barcelona is Beautiful and I look forward to going back someday to spend a bit more time.

We need drink signs like these in the States!

Fabulous architecture at Gaudi’s Gϋell Park. These images don’t do it justice.

Cap Rocat Resort Mallorca Spain Wedding – The Reception

Now for the Reception images from the Cap Rocat Spain Wedding! We had a few moments to take some reception detail shots while the light was perfectly glistening through the banquet hall windows.

The bride chose travel books as their favor. Her sisters-in-law worked late into the night to wrap them in beautiful gold paper. Unfortunately the coordinator unwrapped them in morning.:(So sad! Another testimony to how important it is to pick a good wedding day planner and communicate every little detail to them!

The bride and groom’s table was fittingly titled New York after the city that brought them together.

The bride spent endless time on the print designs for the wedding. The menu’s had an ornate design on the back and were meant to be displayed on top of the plate setting. Unfortunately they were hidden under the napkins. I’m sort of glad I had not been privy to all the wedding details or I would have spent too much time chasing people down giving orders!:)

Cap Rocat has a gorgeous area for guests to lounge and chat during the cocktail hour. Below is a an image taken by Jennifer of the paparazzi as they capture the bride and groom entering the party.

The Swedish guests love their toasts and speeches! Skål!!

I kept rushing back to my table to get food shots and a few bites but didn’t get to the sorbet quite as speedily as I would have liked. Even though it was a bit melted the sorbet and raspberries made a great color combo and very tasty treat!

The guests were given sparklers right before the bride and groom had their first dance. I love the orange glowing background lighting.

Below in black and white the bride and one of her brothers. He is a super nice guy and great model! The music guys were awesome! And this is about where I put my camera down to enjoy some dancing before passing out from exhaustion! Jennifer (the second shooter) and I calculated about 15 hours of shooting just on the wedding day.

Cap Rocat Resort Mallorca Spain Wedding – The Ceremony and Photo Time

This is part three from the beautiful Mallorca, Spain wedding. The ceremony took place under a huge umbrella on top of a roof. They both shed a few tears along with several of the guests, including myself.

After the ceremony we escaped to a hidden area to take a few bridal party photos before we headed out to the sea side. The groom’s new brothers below.

The bride and groom gazing out at the sail boats and communicating with the coordinator regarding timing. I love walkie-talkies!

Cap Rocat Resort Mallorca, Spain Wedding – Getting Ready

I love Spain! So when my cousin Greta asked me to photograph her wedding in Mallorca I was super excited. She picked the most gorgeous location to get married!

Greta and Waldo met in New York while he was there on business and she was there attending school. Waldo was living and working in London. Shortly after they met Greta relocated to London. The rest is history.

This is the second post from their wedding trip and the first from their wedding day.

Greta is a jewelry designer. She designed and created both hers and Waldo’s rings.  

Below (top right) is an image of my sister and Greta. They are both so pretty! Greta, (lower right) giving me one of her mother’s eyes wide open poses. Vendor list will be in the next post.
