A site visit to check out your resort is the perfect time to do engagement photos and we’ve had several couples planning weddings for 2015 that have come down to visit us. I think it’s by far the best investment that any couple can make (if budgets permit) to have a visit to size up and get feel for how things will flow during their wedding weekend. Amy is a photographer herself, so that always raising the bar on our shoots, but as a relaxed, fun loving couple they really just wanted a few nice moments rather than anything formal and see what happened!
It’s just a great pleasure to see families back for more family photography! Rebecca and Brian have been coming to Turks and Caicos for several years now and managed to even persuade other family members to join them this time around. We met them at the Sands Resort this time rather than the usual villa and headed for the awesome Grace Bay beach. What a cool family. We played with the kids, let them jump, run, chase, hug and be playful and in between pulled everyone together for some more “serious” group pictures 😉 Even after the sun set and photos finished we hung out and let the kids draw and play in the sand…love it. Just a great way to spend an hour or so on the beach and some wonderful memories.Read More »Back for more family photography in Turks!
A free engagement photo shoot for couples visiting us here in Turks and Caicos is a wonderful way for us to get to know our future brides and grooms. We hang out, we talk about the wedding, the island. It’s a fun time and really helps lay a great foundation for the wedding weekend itself. It’s also great for couples who perhaps have never worked with a professional photogrpaher before and don’t know what is expected of them. Kaylie and Sean were a blast. We zipped around the island avoiding some rain and wind to find fun backdrops before ending up on a secluded beach – all to ourselves – perfect.
Planning a marriage proposal is always a “test”. How to make it original, unique, memorable? Ryan knocked it out of the park ! While I masqueraded as a member of the crew of Kenard Cruising we sailed up to a remote beach where Melissa and Ryan disembarked to walk, soak up the sun and look for shells. On the way back Melissa “discovered” a conch shell with a phrase they often use between each other written inside. She turned around and Ryan was on one knee!!! From there it was all tears of joy, love, and laughter. The “photo shoot” ? Well really it was just trying to capture 10% of the emotion that was self evident and all around!!! So many congratulations to Melissa and Ryan on this amazing day. Read More »A pure Turks and Caicos proposal.
We love to meet couples before they get married in Turks and Caicos as it’s wonderful to get and to get to know them and to hear their “backstory” of “why Turks and Caicos”. We can also share our passion for these islands and give our advice (if needed) on timings, locations, the flow of a wedding and what we’ve seen work well over the years. Our free engagement shoots that we do for all weddings in Turks and Caicos that come down for a site visit are a great way for us to play and let couple’s experience our fun, low key style that allows them to feel relaxed and not worry about the camera. Sam and Elin’s shoot last week was perfect. A few pictures, we grabbed a beer, chatted about the wedding and then set up a few pictures for save the date cards…awesome. Love the props they brought along – very creative. Read More »A simple Caribbean engagement photo shoot.
It’s always wonderful to have families return to Turks and Caicos and have more family photography. We did a shoot with the Kennedy family couple of year’s ago and now they were back with the rest of the family and more fun! Despite a power outage across the island just before we started the shoot (it came back on before we finished) we did a few at the villa itself before heading out for our Beach Escape shoot. Having the ability to pick everyone up and take them around the island or to other locations is such a great way to vary backgrounds, find secluded beaches and keep the little ones entertained!Read More »More family photography fun.
With Turks and Caicos offering such an amazing location for photo shoots (ask Victoria Secrets, Sports Illustrated, British Vogue amongst others) we’ve been getting more and more requests for honeymoon shoots and also “Trash the Dress Shoots”. With our amazing resorts, perfect white beaches and amazingly clear water it’s the perfect spot for these more adventurous shoots.Read More »A Turks and Caicos honeymoon shoot – going “all in” – underwater !
