Bridal Portrait Shoot

I'm excited to share a few photos from a Bridal Portrait Shoot I planned and photographed with a team of talented vendors and models in Bermuda this past July.  Photos to be released shortly, although to tide you over below is one of my top images to share as a “sneak peak”. 

I’d like to send out special thanks to my husband, Jim West, for assisting with – well, everything on that day – especially the lighting. A massive thanks to videographer Lara Smith from LDS Multimedia, Michelle Geary from GIMI Flowers, Jenn Doe from Studio Wedding Hair Bermuda, Keisha Ramsey from Chrysalis Cosmetics, Jessica McGuinn from BHLDN, Rebecca Singleton from TABS, Ronnie Maughan from The English Sports Shop, Gaby Boyer from Bermudian Weddings, and perhaps the star of the shoot, Gail Musson – our seamstress!  Last but not least – a huge shout out to our fabulous models Rachel Sawden and Ryan Gibbons; a photographer could not have asked for better folks to photograph. Stay tuned for the rest of the images!

Welcome Dinner: Amy & Tim at Grotto Bay

Last night, Amy and Tim had their Welcome Dinner at Grotto Bay in Bermuda and today, October 10th, 2015, they are getting married at Mid Ocean Club. Many congrats to these two love birds! Fabulous food, memorable speeches, a slideshow, and a rockin' dance party lead by the Kennel Boys, one of Bermuda's local bands, made the evening very memorable.

Engagement: Laurielle & Andre

Engagement: Laurielle & Andre

A photographer could not have asked for better weather or lighting on the day Laurielle, and Andre had their engagement photos taken! These two lovebirds won a free engagement shoot from me the Orchid Spa Bridal Expo, which was held at the Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda last February. This post is "extra special" today because the island is currently (as I type) sitting through Hurricane Joaquin! As you can see by his uniform, Andre is currently enrolled in the Bermuda Regiment.  After a hurricane, the soldiers in the Regiment go out into the community to help clean up after a storm passes.
