The Story

This photograph was made at a destination wedding in Veradero, Cuba, a few days after the wedding. I was secretly dying to do a Havana photo shoot with the bride and groom but they had more than seventy friends and family at the resort with them, and didn't feel right leaving them behind for most of a day. On the day of the shoot I was sitting in the resort lobby watching the beautiful antique cars pull up (what we consider collectors' cars in Canada are used as taxis in Cuba), and feeling very sorry for myself that I wouldn't be able to get them, or the colourful architecture of Havana in my photographs. Then it dawned on me that these taxis are for hire and they don't care if they don't have to drive anywhere. Using broken Spanish and broken English, a driver and I struck a deal for 9pm that night. After the sun went down and we had visited the beach and pool at the resort, I told Sarah and Jon I had a surprise for them. They were delighted! As planned, the taxi arrived and we spent half an hour using the inside and outside of this beautiful classic car. This ended up being my favourite image from the entire wedding, they were so natural and relaxed, and instead of going to Havana I brought a little Havana to them!
