Location is key to capturing a beautiful engagement session. Gardens, the beach and the exact spot that the proposal took place are some common places for engagement shoots. I was so excited about this shoot at Floyd’s Pelican Bar, St. Elizabeth because the atmosphere is amazing. If you’re never heard of Pelican Bar, it’s a bar in the middle of the sea!
You have to take a canoe to get there. I love the rustic feel with it’s thatch roof and bamboo walls. The stories you see through the engraved names in the wood as well as the signed flags and t-shirts are a memorable touch. Special thanks to James, a friend of Melissa and Dayne who was able to arrange a sailboat with Luna Sea for this shoot! How romantic!
Pelican Bar is one of Melissa and Dayne’s favourite spots, so it was the ideal location! Here are some of my favourite shots – see more in the portfolio.
