It’s official, my new favourite combo for engagement sessions is the Unfinished Church and Tobacco Bay! The Unfinished Church needs no further introduction as am amazing backdrop for any occasion. Tobacco Bay is super close and has some other worldly rock formations along with a great sunset, truly unique location.
We nailed the timing and the weather for Sarah and Brian. Not all clients are able to visit the island prior to their wedding but Sarah booked me in for the week of their wedding and wanted to give it a look of a trash-the-dress session. It was a great way to get a chance to work together before the wedding and I couldn’t have asked for a more fun couple. Stay tuned for their wedding pics.
While I do typically cover larger weddings there is something very special bout a super small and intimate wedding. Jenna and Wayne had planned their special day well in advance and just because it was small didn’t mean it was lacking any of the special details. Jenna had put so much work into her special day with all sorts of thoughtful touches. Meticulously wrapped presents for all, custom vow booklets and signage galore.
We were lucky to get access to the Residence beach which gave us a sneaky little getaway for some couple shots. Their night was capped off with a beautiful private beach setting for dinner, a truly memorable and special evening.
We worked with Gavin for our destination wedding in Bermuda (September 2019), and he exceeded our expectations from a personal and professional perspective. Bermuda was in the path of a hurricane the week we were initially planning on getting married. Gavin emailed us that Sunday prior to let us know he was thinking of us, and was there if we needed anything. We decided to move the wedding back one week, and Gavin was so incredibly flexible- He helped make that entire process seamless.
On the day of the wedding, Gavin was great to work with. He was calm, gave great direction, and made us all feel comfortable. He also turned around our photos very quickly! He expertly captured the essence/feeling of our day, and got every detail of our decor. Gavin also took amazing candid shots, which was so important to us.
We would highly recommend Gavin- the quality of his work is above and beyond.
September is definitely one of the best months for a destination wedding in Bermuda, plenty of warmth and sunshine yet after the Labor Day holiday when things start to slow down. Sarah and Josh were able to incorporate a traditional church setting along with all of the outdoor elements of a destination wedding. Coral Beach Club has it all as far as settings go, greenery by way of the beautifully manicured wedding lawn and easily one of the best beach settings, to top it off their Longtail Terrace offers dining and dancing with unrivaled views.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day and a better group of proper to enjoy the night with, the dance moves energized by Lamont were the icing!

Elizabeth and Simon are well underway with plans for their Spring 2020 wedding and their recent visit to Bermuda gave us the perfect opportunity to schedule a “practice session” – aka – engagement session! As these pictures will demonstrate – all good here : )
Sometimes you just have to get away and keep things simple! Jackie and Adam had a private elopement with their best friends in attendance at the Unfinished Church in St. George’s, a perfect romantic setting on a beautiful evening.
When Susan first reached out about her Bermuda wedding at The Reefs she had said that she wanted to go snorkeling… in her dress… during the cocktails! While that didn’t happen it should give you some insight into the day and how it unfolded. Susan and Lee were a blast, head over heels for each other and simply happy and down for whatever. They had their daughters with them along with a small group of friends and family, a low stress combo without the bigger numbers. The weather was simply perfect and as usual The Reefs and Bermuda Event Solutions, along with Demco knocked it out of the park.

Stephanie and Matthew’s wedding incorporated many fun elements throughout the day. After the traditional (but brief) ceremony at St. Theresa’s it was all aboard the train where the bride and groom were dropped off at the Hamilton Princess to board the Black Pearl! The rest of the train passengers enjoyed a tour around Hamilton while they relaxed with much needed downtime during the boat ride around the Harbour, the perfect time to enjoy a glass of bubbles and savour the moment. From there it was back to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club for the reception and what a greeting upon arrival. With the dock tented for the dinner speeches went on into the evening before the sound of drums were heard where the Gombeys burst in and led the way to the dance floor. A truly enjoyable wedding for all in attendance!
Every year I seem to have a wedding (or two) that is so off the charts it’s really hard to convey. I knew coming into the weekend that this was likely to be one of those weddings… Kat and Greg wanted to do it all. They loved The Loren and chose to host their group of friends and family at the stunning property, it was the starting point of our epic day. The ceremony was held at the Unfinished Church followed by a quick set of pictures. From there it was a train ride down to the St. George’s Harbour for a cocktail cruise on the Uber Vida. The grand finale was their reception at the Mid Ocean Beach Club with the new Sperry Tent set host the partying well into the night. Truly a vibrant and fun couple with the perfect Bermuda Wedding.

We’re barely into the 2019 wedding season and yet meet Diana and Richard who were in Bermuda recently to plan their Spring 2020 wedding, a fun and lively couple there was no shortage of laughter. We met up at the popular and well know Jobson’s Cove. A small sheltered cove amongst our Southshore beaches. It’s a popular spot for smaller weddings but works especially well for an engagement session. We ventured a bit further down to Stonehole, the change in sand and scenery from beach to beach is remarkable. Here’s to 2020 weddings!
Exciting, rewarding, intense and beautiful are just a few of the words that describe how I feel when I am behind the camera. These are the feelings that bring me so much pleasure from photography..... (read more)
