Mary Beth and David’s Palms Wedding
Turks and Caicos is Thee Place to Wed
After much thought and consideration, Mary Beth and David decided to get married in a Caribbean destination location rather than in the US. Like most couples of their age group, they wanted to keep things simple and just focus on tying the knot and having their honeymoon on one of the world’s finest islands, Providenciales Turks and Caicos. Mary Beth also changed her wedding day from May 7 to May 5 because of an inclement weather forecast for May 7. As it turned out, the weather on May 7 was stormy.
I met Mary Beth in her Palms Resort suite. After taking some preparation photos in her room, it was time to photograph the groom David on a quick tour of the resort grounds to capture a few photos of him before returning to Mary Beth. Then it was time for the groom to see his bride for the “first look” in her suite and then to take romantic photos together around the lovely Palms garden areas.
Wedding photography in the Turks and Caicos can often times be challenging because of the strong sun light. Working at the Palms Resort, however, makes life as a wedding photographer a lot easier because the grounds are so beautiful and because the light is generally very good. For instance, the recently built breakfast area on the backside of the restaurant has become one of my favorite locations for wedding couples photos because it is tucked in a protected area under the trees.
Next it was time to head to the beach with the wedding couple and May Beth’s daughter where they had a short and very intimate ceremony on what seemed like a very vacant Grace Bay beach. Most of the resort guests had already left and there was almost nobody on the beach, except for one very friendly tourist who decided to photo bomb one the sunset photos. After capturing some very spectacular sunset photos I decided to stay a few more minutes to capture some shots of the couple walking up and down the beach at twilight. All in all, the photo session was a complete success.
