St Lucia StoryBook Weddings is the brainchild of internationally renowned St. Lucia Photographer Kirk Elliott.
Having handled all of the in-house photography at a large Caribbean all inclusive resort for 10 years, often shooting over 50 weddings a month, Kirk has traded this in and now offers discerning brides REAL QUALITY TIME and now shoots just 10 or so weddings a year.
Today Kirk delivers a totally different experience to brides for whom only the very best will do.
This comes after a hiatus from weddings during which time Kirk started the St Lucia Photo Tour which shot to the rank of “The #1 Thing To Do in Saint Lucia” within 4 months of its commencement, based on Trip Advisor reviews. Then a year later the St. Lucia Photo Tour earned its first Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
In 2013 St Lucia announced an Annual Wedding Symposium and Kirk immediately thought – “What a marvelous idea” especially considering that St Lucia was already the undisputed “World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination” having won this prestigious award at the “World Travel Awards” more times than any other place on earth!
Kirk’s new and exciting approach to destination weddings centers around delivering a wedding experience that surpasses the best a bride could get if she flies in a top international photographer.
After St Lucia announced the wedding symposium Kirk spent the next two years studying with some of today’s best destination wedding photographers. Photographers who were shooting weddings with photography budgets from U$10,000 to $100,000 … and more – and Kirk was blown away by all the new and exciting things he learnt.
It was during one of these training sessions that a Master Photographer introduced Kirk to what would become his signature “Love is in The Air” wedding image after Kirk saw a similar wedding photo this photographer had shot in Hawaii. Kirk had already been to a photo workshop in Hawaii and from then had decided that for him St. Lucia was more beautiful, simply because he knew better than anyone else the very best photo places in St. Lucia. So Kirk immediately got the idea that what better iconic shot to brand St Lucia Weddings than a shot of a bride and groom in the helicopter – doors off, with her dress and veil blowing out the open doors and the Pitons in the background!
Then as luck would have it, just as Kirk was working on this new style of weddings he received a call from Erin whose wedding was about 6 months away. Kirk helped Erin plan the perfect St Lucia wedding and this plan turned out to be the blue print for Kirk’s new St Lucia StoryBook Weddings…
