How long have you been a photographer?
I have been a professional photographer since 2001. I have been taking photos since I was 12 and worked closely with many photographers in my former career as an art director.
What are some of your accomplishments and experiences as a photographer in the Caribbean.
The light and colour are the best things about being a photographer in the Caribbean. It’s not hard to get the rich, saturated colours I like. I love to include the landscape and surroundings in my photos. That’s what couples travel to Jamaica for. I like weddings here because they are more relaxed than typical weddings. People choose destination weddings to minimize stress, and less stress equals more fun.
I photographed one bride who’s brother died at the resort the night before her wedding (natural causes). She went on with the wedding, but not the party. She still managed to be joyful on her wedding day and I was able to capture a wide range of emotions that day. Despite the loss, it was still a wonderful day, and she knew her brother wanted it that way. Her strength and poise was an inspiration to everyone.
