A couple sundays ago we went to Jost Van Dyke, the smallest of the British Virgin Islands, to photograph Agi and Frank’s Wedding. Usually when I shoot in the BVI I have to stay overnight because I’ll miss the customs office and last ferry that departs at around 5pm when the light is prime golden hour. We stayed the night one of the little cabins at Ivan’s Stress Free Camp, and it was really amazing to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of waves washing up on the sand. Most of our time spent on JVD has been either at Foxy’s Famous Bar in Great Harbor while our Captain checks us in into customs or on lounging on White Bay, home to Teddy, the grumpiest Pomeranian at One Love and of course sipping pain killers at The Soggy Dollar Bar.
Jost Van Dyke is gorgeous. The island has seen minimal development thanks to extensive preservation efforts, retains it’s caribbean charm and maintains a very small population of about 200 residents.

We could not resist the fresh out of the oven cinnamon rolls at Christine’s Bakery, Great Harbor, Jost Van Dyke – British Virgin Islands.
During our walk to the ferry dock we met a little boy name Miles and his Grandpa, that had just returned from fishing. Four year old Miles showed me “his fishing boat” and told us the kinds of fish they caught.
