Melissa & Matthew

We’re barley into the 2018 season and I couldn’t be happier to start working with 2019 brides. Melissa nailed down her wedding for next year and was keen to get her engagement session booked. We lucked out with a perfect evening at Grape Bay, easily one of Bermuda’s best beaches, dramatic seascapes and lush greens with a hint of Bermuda architecture, a pretty cool mix.

Saba & Zameer

It’s April which means wedding season is here. I can’t think of a better way to start the season than with this wonderful group of people. And by group, what I really mean is big groups, we may have broken my past record with the largest bridal party!

Saba and Zameer had the perfect evening at The Reefs, they lucked out beating the predicted weather and enjoying a great evening with lots of close friends and family. From the getting ready through to the dance floor there was so much energy and happiness. A perfect start to the season ahead.

Congratulations Saba & Zameer!

UPDATE – Saba & Zameer just sent me the nicest note:

Gavin we wanted to send our sincerest thanks. Our wedding was magical and we owe so much of that to you. You helped make everything go so smooth and kept everything and everyone so organized it helped us focus on just enjoying the moment. The pictures came out absolutely beautiful!!! We shared them with family and friends who haven’t stopped telling us how beautiful everything was and how great the photos have come out!

We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and help and hope the experience was enjoyable for you as well!

Casey & Andrew

This time of year the final countdown is on for the start of the wedding season. That means last minute checks on equipment, systems and client details before things get manic. Right about now is also when engagement sessions ramp up. I met up with Casey and Andrew (October wedding) at a pretty neat location, Manor House, tucked away in Smiths it had some unique features that certainly changed things up. We then moved over to the footbridge at Bailey’s Bay where a chilly breeze added a bit of a challenge! In the shadow of their wedding venue perched up on the hill we wrapped up as the sun was setting.

Megan & Peter Take Off

I’ve always encouraged couples to make their engagement sessions personal and fun. Megan fully embraced the idea and wanted to incorporate a travel theme and so the idea to work with the small light aircraft on island took flight! They get married later this year and while I am sure there won’t be planes around it promises to be an equally fun day.

2017 Wedding Highlights

Another year in the bag and another set of awesome weddings. As is the case every year, an incredible mix of places, people, emotions, weather, dance moves and pure joy! Wedding photography certainly isn’t easy but living in a beautiful place like Bermuda and being fortunate enough to work with great clients definitely helps.

This year saw a very busy season with 32 weddings, some local but mainly Destination Weddings. Bermuda is more popular than ever for couples looking to get away but still stay close to home on the East Coast, it really can’t beat for location, scenery and amenities!

An interesting little tidbit for the 2017 season – NO RAIN, not a single wedding was rained out, a few close calls and lots of horrific forecasts but not a single rained out wedding. I can only guess that it’s Mother Nature throwing us a bone after suffering through two difficult years filled with hurricanes – let’s hope it holds through 2018.

Looking ahead to the 2018 season, it will be another busy year, my calendar is booked at capacity with a great mix clients and weddings. It’s pretty exciting to know exactly what’s in store and I look forward to new locations and lots of special moments.

Enjoy some of my favourite images from the 2017 season.

Taylor & Matthew

While the 2017 season has come to a close there’s always another great batch of clients on the horizon. Taylor and Matthew are one of those couples. During their recent trip to the island to scope out vendors, locations and explore the Rosewood Bermuda (Formerly Tucker’s Point) I met up with them for an engagement session. Wandering the grounds on a stunning Fall day we had no shortage conversation about their upcoming plans and ideas. It’s always such a treat to get a chance to have this experience with each of my couples.

Happy Holiday and New Year!

Samantha & RJ | Married

Samantha and RJ were one of my last couples for the 2017 season and what a great way to round out an awesome year. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple, super easy going and just happy to be together and enjoy the day with a seriously fun group of people. If you need proof of just how fun this lot was then scroll to the bottom for the epic dancing pics! With the weather cooperating it was full steam ahead at the beautiful Unfinished Church and then back to Mid Ocean to party the night away! As usual Working Title provided no shortage of fun into the night!

Jordan & Toby

I first met with Jordan and Toby many months ago when their wedding was nothing more than a bunch of ideas and pages of notes. I simply can’t convey how much energy and thought went into every aspect of this beautiful event. Jordan and her mother had a vision and along with the help of JoAnn Gregoli absolutely saw it through. Everything fell into place, the weather (despite a gloomy forecast) was magnificent, the decor and lighting was unlike anything see at Coral Beach Club prior, the band was just insanely entertaining and talented it really was one of the highlights of my wedding season and for that matter all of my seasons!

For such a special event I teamed up with the very talented Melissa Slater as a second photographer. Pairing up two photographers is not as easy as one might imagine but if done correctly the results are a seamless set of images which was exactly why I sought her out. The additional coverage really pulled together the entire event.

Many congratulations Jordan and Toby, it’s been a great experience working with you both!

Alison & Robert

Bermuda is not a big place and so anytime a new wedding venue comes online it’s pretty exciting. Alison and Robert were one of the first couples to have their wedding at The Loren. Situated right on the water it offers up perfect, unobstructed views of the Southshore. It’s a smaller, boutique hotel which made it perfect for their fun group of friends and family. With the hotel being in the East end it’s not far from the popular Unfinished Church which they chose for their ceremony location. When you throw in the perfect September day in the mix with these locations and such a great couple you can’t go wrong!
