Tara and Nick bring the kids to the beach.

Villa del Mar is a great base for family vacations in Turks and Caicos. It has great rooms, a lovely pool and is a short walk to the Grace Bay Beach. Tara and Nick and their two young children clearly had been having a great time and it was a pleasure to carve a little time out of the vacation for some family pictures. I really believe that  it’s a big advantage  when photographing kids to be a parent yourself. You know the tricks, the looks, the turn of phrase that helps get them into having fun and relaxing. With Kelan and Kali, it was just great fun – we ran, we jumped, we chased…what a great time on the beach..Read More »Tara and Nick bring the kids to the beach.

Even grown up kids have fun at Grace Bay Club.

I’m not sure who was having more fun during this family photo shoot, the boys or the parents! The Johnson’s are really all grown up with a wedding on the horizon too next year. With the family moving on its was a great opportunity to capture them all together in Turks and Caicos. the Grace Bay Club as always was a beautiful backdrop. it turns out they live only a few miles from my relatives in VA  -literally around the corner..what a small world.. Just a fun family time..Read More »Even grown up kids have fun at Grace Bay Club.

The Anderson Family at the Regent Grand Resort.

Even an overcast afternoon and a cut foot from a boat trip didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the Anderson Family.  With a packed family itinerary for their vacation it was amazing to hear all the fun things they were getting up to. “Snuba tomorrow” !  We chatted about scuba diving, restaurants – just a relaxing time as we worked our way down to the beach. So glad we managed to meet up with them at the lovely  Regent Grand and do a few quick family pictures. Awesome family.Read More »The Anderson Family at the Regent Grand Resort.

Meghan and Jonathan’s Grace Bay Club wedding.

I’m going to remember Meghan and Jonathan’s Grace Bay Club wedding for many years to come. It won’t be for the prospect of the on/off rain that kept us all on our toes. It won’t even be for the island wide power outage as everyone was about to sit for dinner. It will be for the emotional roller coaster of a ceremony which had guest both in fits of laughter and wiping away tears. Whilst many weddings can be all about “the stuff’, the details, the food, the decor, this wedding was personal, special and a great way to celebrate.Read More »Meghan and Jonathan’s Grace Bay Club wedding.

Angela and Hesam’s Wedding at Seven Stars Resort.

A relaxed destination wedding in Turks and Caicos. A ceremony a few feet from the ocean’s edge. A Penthouse reception over looking the beach as the sun sets into the ocean. Sounds lovely, a dream? It’s Angela and Hesam’s wedding day. Despite  some last minute changes for the weather it was a perfect wedding. Close family, friends gathered to hear the exchange of vows with the waves lapping on the beach providing
the background music”. Angela also brought an awesome red umbrella that added a personal touch and “pop” of color .Read More »Angela and Hesam’s Wedding at Seven Stars Resort.

A Seven Stars Wedding in Turks and Caicos

Weddings in Turks and Caicos are always fun. Even when the heavens open up as vows are exchanged and the couple squeezes together under a large blue umbrella, the wedding still turns out to be a beautiful affair, with laughter  with love, with great times. Whitney and Daniel’s wedding combined two resorts (Regent Grand and Seven Stars), loads of close family and friends (Daniel has 7 brothers and sisters). The weather was not the highlight of their day. The awesome Laura and even the General Manager of the resort (Ken) made sure of that (what service!). Exchanging vows and celebrating with those that matter was. Another great wedding in Turks and Caicos.
