St. Thomas photographers

Recommended Posts

I think this is kind of expensive. Our photography is inclueded in our package. Bluegrass Photography will be doing our pictures. The cost that you would pay just for the photography with Kelly is as almost as much as we are paying for our ceremony. That includes site fees, officiant, 1 hr videography, 1 hr photograpy, flower isle, bouqet & boutonniere. I would shop around more.

She lives in St. Croix, so her travel fee to St. Thomas is $200 or $400 (can't remember off the top of my head).

 

And, if you want a CD of all the photos--- $2,500....

"Kind of expensive"? I totally agree, Yvette. And, personally, I think the pictures of a few photographers mentioned in this thread (Paradise Pictures and Blue Glass, I think?) are just as good if not better.

Yvette,

Right on! Very pricey to say the least!

Most wedding coordinators include the photography in their packages, so it shouldn't even be an added expense! There are a few people tho, that will choose their own photographer. In this case, the wedding coordinator is willing to work with you!

I just did a wedding on Sunday morning where this happened. The bride hired Eric Johnson seperately!

Hi Yvette,

 

I saw, within the BDW blogs that you used BG Photography for your wedding last year. If you do not mind, could you provide me with some feedback? I am getting married next May in St. John and trying to find a photographer and obtain some recommendations and feedback from this site. We are getting married in the church followed by pictures at Trunk Bay. We are having a very private and intimate wedding with just 4 people (including the two of us).

 

Any help you can provide is sincerely appreciated. Thank you very much.

I would suggest Eric Johnson (St. Thomas, St. John, Virgin Islands, Caribbean Wedding Photography by photographer Eric Johnson). He's the best. If you use Blue Glass be sure to get confirmation of who your photographer will be and ask see that photographers work, not just the company's general portofolio. You may think you're booking the owner but actually get some kid off the street who may never have shot a wedding before.

I was just married on Magen's Bay on November 10th. Kelly O'Brien Uszenski was my photographer. Her fee was included in my wedding package for 1 hour of photography and I paid for an additional hour for $550. I have ownership fo all or my digital photos. I am beyond amazed by Kelly's work and would HIGHLY recommend her. She was such a pleasure to work with and she truly captured the essence of my wedding. Each time I look at my photos I am taken back to the way I felt on that day.

@@MikkiStreak Did you book Gary Felton?


@@jean-marcus How much is a typical session in the islands when you book a photographer from the states? What do you typically require the bride to pay? Im assuming flights and a place to stay, but as far as misc. like food, transport (cabs), etc. Do you have a minimum length of days that you require a bride to book for you to do her photos?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
