Travel

British Virgin Islands

For Valentine’s Day Kevin surprised me with a romantic weekend getaway down to Virgin Gorda in the B.V.I. One of the challenges when you are a working couple is to maintain personal time together outside work, which is a fun challenge. This getaway was not about a shot list or the pressures of delivering that perfect image for a client but all about being on island time. Sipping rum cocktails, boat hopping, exploring caves, eating the catch of the day, and forgetting time on our own private beach.

Thrilling adventure! I have come to learn that flying small planes means the pilot can angle the plane for you for better photographs! Also, my new go to flying shoes that feel like pillows on your feet are by Charles Philip.

    I love these photos, Jamie! The BVI is one of my favorite places I have ever traveled and you captured the beauty of the Baths exactly like I remembered it! Where is your polka dot dress from? That would be so perfect for my rehersal dinner for my upcoming wedding!

    • Rachel C

      I was going to ask the same question! Where can I get that polka dot dress??? :)

    • nnenna1881

      yes jamie spill on that dress, i need it in my life

      • Natalie

        Ladies I’ve also been stalking the dress and pretty sure this is the one – Lauren Ralph Lauren Polka Dot Jersey Halter Dress. Nordstroms is sold out but there are a few on ebay in bigger sizes – guessing it will be easy to alter since it’s jersey and pretty simple silhouette. Hope this helps!

      Hi Gina! It was a Lauren Ralph Lauren dress from early last year. I couldn’t find it available anywhere otherwise I would have linked. Natalie said she found it on ebay. It’s super comfy and classic!

  • Fleur-Léon

    The perfect getaway! My favorite is the one of Kevin you captured inside the Jeep… so hauntingly beautiful, and the light is perfection! Amazing work, as always Jamie!

      Oh I’m so glad you pointed that one out. It was such a moment, he pulled over to look at the ocean and smell the air and just… slow down for a min and I leaned far back and snapped that image with the sunset light and thoughtfulness. It is one of my favorites.

      • Arzoo Amer

        It’s an absolutely beautiful shot to match the moment! Thank you for sharing that story :)

      Yeah, I would have credited the dress but I got it early last year so I knew it would be hard to find. It’s SO comfy and fabulous to wear.
