St. Thomas Wedding Photography

Three Reasons to Elope for your St. Thomas Wedding

Added on by sage hammond.

One of my favorite beaches to photograph is Limetree Beach. As a St. Thomas Photographer, I get the pleasure of taking photos of families and beach weddings all over the island, but I'm always excited to go back to Limetree. It's really the perfect beach for any time of day!

A few days ago, I was fortunate enough to shoot this St. Thomas elopement. It was a flawless day for a wedding. This lovely couple chose to read their vows in the early morning, which is the best time to get that bright turquoise color in the water. 


Here, I've included three reasons why it might be better for you to have an elopement instead of a large wedding like these guys did:

1. There are fewer opinions to consider.

When planning a larger wedding, you'll have a lot of dynamics telling you what they think you should be doing. If you decide to elope, only two opinions matter--yours and your significant other's. You can decide the time of day. You can choose your own vendors. You can decide what to do after. You're free from needing to make everyone else happy. It's your day, and you can make it perfect for you. 


2. You will save money by eloping.

You're significantly lowering the cost of your wedding day, if you choose to elope in St. Thomas. You'll have fewer vendors, fewer people, and less stress! These guys chose to have me as their St. Thomas Wedding Photographer and Island Mike as their officiant. After the wedding and wedding photo session, they enjoyed their day on the island and basked in the love of one another. 


3. The day is just about you and your special someone.

This is probably the best part! You get to be with one another and it's just about the two of you! There is something undeniably romantic about having the entire beach just to yourselves when you get married on St. Thomas. You are also already in paradise and ready to start your honeymoon right away in the US Virgin Islands!
