    Hey guys,

    I have a wedding scheduled for later this year in the Bahamas. I'm the photographer. We're going to be shooting near/at the Atlantis for the ceremony, but I'll also be doing an engagement style shoot before the wedding.

    Does anyone have any advice on a quiet or less touristy place I can take the couple that's not too far from the Atlantis?

        Hi Aaron,
        I will be getting married in May at Compass Point Resort in Nassau,Bahamas. My fiance and picked this place because the area is less crowed/touristy.. It's about 10 minutes fron Nassau airport and about 30 minutes away from Atlantis. It's also close to Love Beach.

        Hope this helps...

        Cherisse

            When I was looking for wedding locations I noticed "The Cloisters", beautiful setting but very expensive to book a wedding there. However, maybe you can do some picutres there, it's on the same island and I remember passing it from Atlantis to our wedding location. (maybe 5 minutes)

            Here is some quick info on it: The Cloisters Nassau Bahamas

            Good luck!

              thanks! you're right it's not far from the Atlantis. I just called that # from the link you sent me, and they said you can take the Atlantis shuttle to get there...so i'll have to check it out.

              thanks again...

                  They look great Aaron. I love the vibrancy of the colors. Although honestly I don't know why you blurred out the ocean in the background in the first picture.

                    The Cloisters are great or the one and only ocean club is goregous. I don't know if they would let you take pictures there but its really nice. It was in the last James Bond movie..

                      yeah, i heard about the bond movie being filmed there... several others were also filmed there...some of pirates of the caribbean

                      hey, i love that blur...b/c the focus is on the bride and groom and not the background...: ) it's just a shallow depth of field...
