Ben and Kisha @ Beaches - Turks & Caicos

Every once in a while I meet someone that I feel like I've known before. They are a familiar spirit - like we've been friends for years. That's how I felt when I met Ben and Kisha in person. I flew up to New York to photograph their engagement session and as soon as we started talking I was put at ease.

They decided to have a destination wedding in Turks & Caicos at the Beaches Resort. Except for the detailed timeline, informative tips, and generous welcome bag, you'd have no idea that Kisha and Ben were the bride and groom. They were so laid back! My kind of people. Since I was surrounded by their family and close friends on the island, I spent time investigating facts about the couple. I started with Kisha's dad and worked my way through the friends to Ben's son. Story after story, I learned more about Ben and Kisha's character. I fell in love with them and their relationship. One of my quotes is, "the key is to love what you see and to shoot what you feel." By the time the wedding started I felt as if I was capturing the moments of members of my own family.

As a wedding gift, Ben gave Kisha a private photography workshop with me! So we'll be hanging out a lot more soon. I couldn't be happier to welcome this family into my life with open arms!
