    By far our favorite place on the planet! We just shot there a few months ago and plan to go back next year for another Wedding. Hopefully more!

    Thing about it is, its not just the water, but the whole vibe and the peacefulness of the beach.

    Thailand RULES.

    Next favorite place was a little place South of Puerto Vallarta called El Careyes. We shot a Wedding at the El Carese resort which is a Starwood property and simply AMAZING. They have a private cove which was freakin amazing!

    Tons of faves but those 2 spring to mind.

    cheers,

    Come on now...you can't tease us like that and then not put up any pics!

    I would love to see some photos of those areas you mentioned.

      haha...indeed we should not!

      The Thailand ones should be up soon, the El Careyes ones are up on our Blog as well as on our site. Apologies for this layout looking a bit dark the collage software I used for this causes that.

      The pic from Thailand should be up on our blog next week hopefully. Click the image to open in full size.

        El Careyes does look very very nice. Great work also!

        Looking forward to the Thailand ones too.

          Bahamas is top on my list at this point, but I will let you know when I get back from Barbados from my vacation.

          Morgan, I will have a lot of photos when I get back and you are welcome to use them

            Bahamas is nice, we love Diving there usually but when we go there for Weddings it always seems that the clients end up getting married on the "less than nice" beach areas, where the waves are often too rough to really do much in the water. Like at the Atlantis, we found their beach to be highly unusable. At least the entire week we were there.

            Pretty to look at but nothing but warning signs about entering the water.

            The one and only club just up the beach has a much nicer beach area but same situation with the water.

            Of course this is all Nassau/Paradise island. If you head to the out islands you truly have some of the most remote and gorgeous tiny islands in the Carribean, bar none. To us, thats where its at!

              I went to a little Carribean island, Coco Cay, on a Royal Carribean Bahamas cruise last year - LOOOVED it! The sand and water were like something out off a postcard, as are most of the pics posted in this thread! I am honestly amazed that places like this REALLY exist!

              In planning my DW an awesome beach and water are really really important to me, so when I was thinking of Mexico my mom suggested the Carribean side so that maybe we could see that amazing water and sand again! I've never been to Mexico before so does anyone know how Mexico (Carribean side) and the Carribean (i.e. Bahamas) compare in terms of sand and water?

                Playa Minitas in the Dominican Republic.

                It's a private beach with the most insanely crystal blue water ever. Like a movie. I remember looking both ways, hearing ocean waves, and not seeing anyone for miles. The memory always makes me nostalgic. Sigh.

                  Well. We just got back from the Virgin Islands for 1 week. Had a good time. The nicest beach we saw was Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Beach. Both amazing and both on St. John.

                  Only thing that we did NOT care for were the locals. Kinda shady characters and definately not the most friendly. Moreso in St. Thomas than in St. John but overall our feeling was that we wont go back.

                  Great beaches is one thing but we enjoy spending time with locals and taking in the cultures. These local left alot to be desired. Not only in our opinion but in the opinions of all the people we were there with.

                      ...pardon me for interrupting, I never heard of "cinnamon beach", that truly is a beautiful name for a beach. Good for you!
