This month, Crown Images is celebrating our 10th year of being a St. Thomas wedding photographer!
When I look at my life 10 years ago and compare it to today, I see two completely different times in my life! 10 years ago, I was an international flight attendant and assisting in photography in Manhattan, New York. Today, I am on an island in Caribbean Sea photographing weddings, families, engagements and honeymooners in the USVI!
Moving from New York was a huge change of pace for me. I came to St. Thomas on a much-needed vacation and to visit one of my good friends who lived here. I quickly fell in love with the island, the people and the slower-paced environment.
It is so hard to believe that I have been calling St Thomas home for the last 10 years, the time has gone by so fast. It still feels like everyday that I'm taken aback by the beauty of the island and the love from the community I have found here in the Caribbean.
Lately, I've taken to looking through some of my older photos and I can see that my style and my experience has grown exponentially. Here is a photo from each year from when I started as a St. Thomas Wedding Photographer up until now with Crown Images!
I can't imagine being anywhere else or doing anything else! There have been some tough times and there have been some amazing times, but I can't imagine being anywhere else in the world. I've grown to love this island and view the US Virgin Islands as my home.
I do want to take a second to thank all of my couples and USVI vendors from the past 10 years. I wouldn’t be where I am today without you all. Thank you!
Happy 10 Year Anniversary to Crown Images! I can't wait to see where the next 10 years photographing weddings and portraits take me!
