St. Lucia wedding photographer
St. Lucia is definitely one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean for wedding photography. If you’re searching for an island with a South Pacific feel, you might have just found the perfect spot. It’s got two massive cone-shaped peaks, Gros Piton and Petit Piton, with lush waterfalls and tropical weather. Together these two peaks form a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which means that they’re among the world’s most beautiful places. St Lucia wedding photography is like bread and butter… or rum and punch, for that matter.
The best time of year to get married in St. Lucia is probably the dry season, which lasts from January to April of each year. The wet season is from May to August, with the Hurricane Season being in Autumn. Beware that St. Lucia does get affected by Hurricanes, so it’s not advised to plan a wedding there in or around October/November.
Getting to St. Lucia for your wedding is farily simple thanks to it having two airports and reasonable service via ocean ferries. Once you’re there, you’ll be able to speak English, which is the official language.

What to do on St. Lucia
There’s a ton of stuff to do on St. Lucia, including lots of beautiful rainforest hikes and sitting in the Sulfer Springs near Soufriere. It’s one of the rarer experiences in the Caribbean. Also, the hike up Gros Piton is prety epic and winds up at nearly 2600 feet above sea level. It takes about two to three hours to get to the top. Don’t forget to try the awesome local rum and even the Piton Lager Beer (which is quite strong!). Last, be sure to check out Pigeon Island National Park as well as the Botanical Gardens. Also if you’re considering a St. Lucia wedding, a photographer who can bring a waterproof camera will allow you to schedule a trash the dress session in the ocean.
Dreamtime Verdict: St. Lucia
St. Lucia is hard to beat. It’s two huge mountains offer breathtaking views of the entire Caribbean and would be a great place for a trash the dress session. It’s got tons of beautiful beaches and some of the nicest hotels in all of the Caribbean. Unlike some of the more southern islands, St. Lucia has some incredible terrain with mountains that look like they belong in Fiji or Samoa or some other island in the South Pacific. Guadeloupe has similar mountains in the Caribbean, but it’s also got an active volcano on it. All in all, St. Lucia would be a wonderful location for a wedding, and offers tons of beautiful opportunities for wedding photography.
