    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.

              We were married on St. John in October and used Sage Crown Parker St John Wedding Photographer : St Thomas Wedding Photography : Virgin Islands Destination Weddings for our photographs. She lives on St. Thomas and was really great to work with. Her prices are very reasonable.

                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.

                A few of my photos are featured on her blog. Shakeima and Andre Chatman

                @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?
