This has been a long time coming, so I’m very excited to share this amazing destination wedding trash-the-dress photo session in the Caribbean. After a fun night of partying the night away in Barbados, Kristy and Phil put on their formal wear one last time to have fun on the white sandy beaches by The Crane Residential Resorts. The backdrop of the beach was not just the beautiful blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but the gorgeous cliffs of The Crane, which provided a few shades during most of the session. One tip for photographers who shoots destination weddings or any wedding, make sure to note the time sunrise and sunset occurs. It’s easy enough to Google the time so this way you hit the golden hour when shooting on the beach…it’s also a good thing to actually ask the residents the approximate time the sun goes up. I should have done this since what we thought was early was not early enough. Even with the sun already high in the sky, we made do and still had fun. With filters on my lens to help with the surrounding background light, we got amazing shots with the helps of an off-camera lighting set-up and my handy Flashpoint reflector from Adorama.
Trash the dress sessions, with a beautiful blue sky and beach backdrop, is always an amazing photo shoot to have. The bride and groom are already relaxed after their big day, so this day after session is just for the two of them. There are no restrictions, no boundaries, and yes they can get dirty and jump in the ocean if they want to...and these two did!
