Turks and Caicos Islands, Alexandra Resort, Tricia and Matt’s Wedding day

We re now firmly into the prime wedding season in Turks and Caicos with destination weddings every weekend and even a few in between. What fun !

A great start to our “season” was the wedding of Tricia and Matt at the Alexandra resort. A “sweet and simple” wedding with 70 guests, lots family, petal toss on the beach and cocktails and the reception at the lovey Mango Reef which is right on the beach. The colors for the reception were stunning as always with Tropical DMC and Environmental Arts doing a great job as always. With the sun hanging in the sky we had the first dance as the light slowly disappeared which are some of my favorite pictures from the wedding.

Turks and Caicos Islands, Parrot Cay Resort & Spa, The Evans Family

Parrot Cay is not just a resort; It’s an experience and one of my favorite places to shoot. There are always great places to use as backdrops(it’s stunning!) and the island as a whole just puts people at ease….relaxed people means great pictures !

Kim and her family were visiting Turks recently and we organized a family shoot through twitter !! With boats schedules fixed we had to shoot a little earlier than normal 4-5pm (so no sunset ;-(   – but the great sunlight and gorgeous colors made up for it. The kids were awesome! Fun to shoot, loved pulling faces and acting out for me…we could have continued for another hour or longer we were having such fun…..cool…

Kim wanted an India Hicks “Island Life”  feel to the shoot….

Turks and Caicos Islands, Regent Grand, The Carone Family

Jaclyn has young kids and so when she called to book her family photo shoot we wanted to make sure that the shoot would be at a time of day when they would be happy. Although sunset is great light, as any parent knows, early evening is also often a “grumpy” time of day and much less predictable than early morning. We can “work” the light and locations; It’s far harder t0 get a grumpy toddler into a good mood !!!!  So with family also wanting some pictures together we did two shoots !! One AM and one just before dinner.Perfect!Read More »Turks and Caicos Islands, Regent Grand, The Carone Family

We’ve known Stephanie from the Flower girl for many, many years.

Turks and Caicos, Regent Palms Resort & Spa, Boys will be boys !

Having families come back for a second or third shoot with us is always a treat. They know us, we know them, things just kick off as if no time had passed. It’s been five years since we helped the Presley family and the boys Jackson and Hunter have gotten bigger, faster and have even more energy ! With the Regent Palms as our base (aka gorgeous backdrop), we let that energy flow and spent a wonderful hour or so hanging out, very relaxed through to sunset and a little beyond..Read More »Turks and Caicos, Regent Palms Resort & Spa, Boys will be boys !

Turks and Caicos Islands, Seven Stars Resort, The Kulick Family

With the help of the awesome Turks and Caicos Reservations we set up a lovely family shoot with Gigi and her family last week at the seven stars resort (which I can see from the studio over my right shoulder). This is their fifth visit to Turks and seven stars is now a favorite! We chatted about cameras, the island, took a few pictures…great.
