A Turks and Caicos Destination Wedding. Corey and Glen had their Turks and Caicos destination wedding this past week at the Gansevoort Resort and Corey wanted to have a photo shoot where she could go wild wearing the dress, but still be able to wear it the night of the wedding.
So having had a perfect sunset evening the night before we planned a midday/lunchtime shoot in the awesome bright Caribbean sunshine.
We grabbed some beer in a cooler, bought some cracked conch from a local restaurant along the way and over the next couple of hours made our way around the island.
Originally Corey and Glen were looking at doing a shoot at the resort on the beach at sunset. But we chatted via email before the wedding and soon decided that the Island Escape was the real option that they wanted. For most couples we find that the barrier to this kind of shoot is that they think it’s going to take a long time, will be really posed and boring and not much fun and after all they just spent a whole bunch of money on the wedding photos anyway. So we do the opposite. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s fun and great value for money.You get to drink beer while you do it and with our local knowledge it’s a blast…
The Conch Shack was actually shut as its “low season” right now – but that didn’t matter – we were still able to shoot some images around the restaurant area – love this place.
Again keeping things moving along. We have only been shooting and eating and drinking and traveling for about an hour at the most and are on to our third location. No time to get bored, but not too busy to feel rushed. A quiet beach on the very south side of the island – almost totally deserted – just us and one other couple way down the beach – awesome!
Corey and Glen – THANK YOU for being so cool and so into this whole thing. It really was so much fun helping you with this and being able to show you some of the Turks and Caicos that we know and love so much.
