My boyfriend and I made a very last minute decision to book a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean this spring. This was my first time on a cruise ship, so I was both nervous and excited and had no idea what to expect. We sailed Norwegian Escape and stayed in the Haven Suites which gave us access to many amenities that were not open to the rest of the cruisers. The staff were very accommodating and the selection of restaurants, bars, and activities on the ship was fantastic. We even befriended some of the cast members from one of the shows!

Our first stop was St. Thomas. We really wanted to explore St. John while we were close by, so we hopped on a ferry and spent most of our morning floating in the water at Trunk Bay, St. John. After lunch and a few drinks, we headed back to St. Thomas and explored Magen’s Bay before getting back on the ship. After two sea days, we made it to Tortola. We hopped on a ferry to The Baths in Virgin Gorda. This was by far the most beautiful spot I have visited! Our last day was in Nassau, Bahamas. One of my goals on this trip was to photograph a couple while we were in Nassau. Luckily I met a couple on our cruise ship that allowed me to photograph them at the Queen’s Staircase in Nassau. Along with exploring all of the beautiful places, we met tons of amazing people on this cruise who are now some of our good friends.

If you are planning a cruise, I recommend researching other locations around the islands that are in your itinerary. St. John wasn’t a part of our itinerary but it was only a 15 minute ferry ride away. Exploring the Caribbean by ship is a great way to get a feel for what these beautiful islands have to offer. Next time we plan a trip to the Caribbean, we will stay on one of the island's – most likely St. John.

We have seen time and time again. Clients are more likely to order and upgrade their photo albums when they see a  pre-designed layout. After a year or more planning every little detail of their wedding; the last thing clients want to do is make more decisions. When you pre-design an album that blows them away, chances are high that they will approve and order the album as you've designed it.

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too! My husband (who is amazingly supportive) got on board immediately and we bought a camera. From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.
