Bride + Bride Turks & Caicos Trash the Dress – fabulous!

Turks & Caicos Trash the Dress: my favorite! When I have 2 fabulous brides and 2 white dresses to soak in the turquoise Caribbean water, the fun doubles!

Dannika and Ryann got married at the beginning of July and, instead of planning a big fancy wedding, they chose an intimate affair and two memorable photo shoots. The first one at home, on the big day, the second one during their honeymoon in Turks & Caicos.

I love everything that’s different, artistic, creative and beautiful. This Turks & Caicos Trash the Dress certainly has it!

A graceful Turks Caicos Family Portrait with a dancing twist

In most cases it’s mom that makes all the arrangements to book a  beautiful Turks Caicos Family Portrait, while dad simply “comes along”. But what happens when dad is a passionate amateur photographer? He books a three hours session, stands as an assistant, gets all the images and, most important, he has a blast!

This is the story of Dwight and his gorgeous girls. From Villa del Mar, in Grace Bay, to Long Bay and Leeward beach. A special afternoon spent together creating precious memories.

Beautiful family portrait at The Palms Turks and Caicos

It’s always a pleasure to photograph a beautiful family portrait at The Palms Turks and Caicos. It’s even better when the kids are super cute and the parents are enthusiastic about the photo shoot.

Thanks to an early wake up call, we avoided the hot and bright midday sunlight. Grace Bay is stunning shortly after sunrise, when the beach is deserted and the ocean is calm and clear. A few clouds can’t certainly spoil the fun!

A fun, sweet, large family portrait at Taylor Bay, Turks & Caicos

Can I photograph a fun, sweet, large Family Portrait at Villa View Caribe in Taylor Bay, Turks & Caicos? Of course! Can I handle 8 adults, 2 infants, 2 toddlers, 4 school age children? Absolutely! When James, Senior Guest Experience Specialist at Luxury Retreats, asked me those questions I immediately thought about the possible tears, the patience overload, the silly games and fun expressions needed to capture so many little kids. What I didn’t expect was 3 wonderful couples, 8 smiling kids and an amazing grandma.

The overcast sky worked like a giant softbox, reducing shadows, contrasts and squinting. The quite beach offered me the perfect background. The energy and involvement of the parents made the children laugh and have a good time. Everything came together for a picture perfect large family portrait. It’s certainly not all about the best photographer!

Turks and Caicos beach photos

It’s summer time! Time to travel, soak up the sun, relax, have fun and enjoy a beautiful vacation. It’s also time to rock the beach body you worked so hard for, making it memorable with a collection of amazing Turks and Caicos beach photos.

I had a blast photographing Shani and Danny! She is absolutely stunning and he’s crazy about her. Together they chose her fabulous blue dress, the bikinis, the jewelry. Danny dreamed of his wife walking on the beach with a lace umbrella and little twinkle lights, so he created it – who doesn’t love such a romantic man?!?
