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.

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
