Sweet and Simple
Ashley and Kirk described themselves as “not too fussy.” It was the first thing they said when we met to discuss their wedding wishes. Understanding what they were visualizing for their professional wedding photos would be key to giving them the memorable images they deserved, so meeting with them was a must. For them, the aim was ‘Simple, but elegant.’ They’d traveled from Jackson, Mississippi, to the soft sandy beaches of the Turks and Caicos Islands with only their closest family; a party of ten, to be exact. In collaboration with the lovely ladies at NILA Destinations and Maxime Le Salon, our task was to ensure this bride and groom both looked and felt good on their wedding day.
Ashley was gorgeous in her Madison James gown. Soft curls and neutral pallet makeup completed her bridal look, and together, made for elegant bridal portraits in the beautiful Blue Mountain Villa. It was exciting photographing Kirk’s reaction as he saw his bride in her wedding dress for the first time. After their first look moment, our photography timeline flowed smoothly into garden portraits with just the bride and groom. Then we headed for the stunning Grace Bay Beach where a lovely decorated arch awaited. In the evening’s golden hour, Kirk and Ashley exchanged their vows, took their first kiss as husband and wife, and simply enjoyed themselves in the moment. It was a picturesque day for a destination beach wedding. The turquoise water danced, and the sunset lit up the evening sky for a grand finale. It was an honor capturing these priceless moments for Ashley and Kirk, and we’re sure these images will live with them forever.
