The day after Anita and I photographed the wedding of Nicole and John at The Somerset Resort on Grace Bay, we met once again but this time it was for a Turks and Caicos trash the dress session around the island. This is one of our favorite types of photo shoot as they are always very different to what we normally do in a regular portrait session.
The weather wasn’t very good that morning as we had some light rain and wind and we were a little concerned about possible locations for the shoot. After driving around the island of Providenciales for about twenty minutes we finally found some light blue skies and it was time to get our cameras and our drone out for some great images!
Our first stop was Chalk Sound. This area is in the south side of Providenciales and it is very well known for the stunning turquoise color of the water. Here is where we took some great aerial images of the bride and groom at the edge of the shallow mangrove waters.
Nicole and John wanted to have some images taken on a dock so Sapodilla bay, which happens to be just around the corner and one of the most beautiful docks that we use, was where we headed next.
For the last part of the ‘trash the dress‘, we needed clear and deeper water in order to get the underwater shots. As Sapodilla bay was very shallow that morning at low tide, we decided to drive back to Grace Bay, to our final location – Smith’s Reef, next to Turtle Cove Marina.
The weather got worse by the end of the session but that didn’t stop us from getting some great underwater images with Nicole and John. Here are a few favorites from their island trash the dress session….
