Saint Thomas: Brewer's Bay Beach and Old Stone Ruins

Added on by sage hammond.

I would say one of the most popular questions I get for photography on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands is, where should we meet for photos? There are so many amazing options for the perfect backdrop on St. Thomas this isn't always the easiest question to answer. I recently had the pleasure of photographing Noah's senior photos on Brewer's Bay Beach.

Brewer's Bay Beach is right next to University of the Virgin Islands campus and just past the airport. Normally it's not very crowded and there are food trucks parked close by, with plenty of parking right on the street.

For some reason I've not been to Brewer's that much while I've lived and photographed on St. Thomas. I really fell in love with it during this morning photo session. I love seeing the mountain in the background and the clarity of the water. We found lots of great spots for different backdrops.

I really loved that we mostly had the beach to ourselves and that it had a little bit more then just the beach for photos. It has the remains of an old stone ruin right next to the beach. I thought the ruins were perfect for something a little unique and complementing with the beach portrait.

In the photo above you can see the runway at the airport on the left side of the horizon.

I can easily recommend Brewer's Bay Beach for any photo session on St. Thomas--it is truly picture perfect.

Congratulations to Katie and Joe!!!

They exchanged their wedding vows at beautiful Sand Dollar Estate's private beach on St. Thomas. It was a perfect Caribbean day for a simple island style wedding.

I loved Joes's face as Katie walked down the stairs to the beach.

Doesn't Saint Thomas look amazing from this private beach?! There really isn't another spot like it, it's so special.

The entire family helped organize all the details. They even picked the flowers around the island for some fun color. One of the reasons they decide on St. Thomas for their wedding was because their entire group could all stay together at the Sand Dollar Estate for the week. It truly made for an intimate feel.

Congratulations to Brittany and Joe!!!

This was Bolongo Beach Resort's first wedding of 2018 and it was a ton of fun. Brittany and Joe did a first look at the boat dock before the ceremony. As soon as they were together it was clear that these two are the perfect match.
