Can Cruisers do Flying Dress Photoshoots if we are only here for 1 day?

DEFINITELY!
We typically shoot cruisers in our 10am photoshoot time slot as most cruises arrive in Bridgetown Port at 8am. Please note our 10am slots are our most popular time slot so if you are traveling on a cruise, we highly recommend you book your photoshoot far in advance. We shoot cruisers at Carlisle Bay which is
a short drive from the Port. Most cruisers will plan to spend the day at a beach bar on Carlisle Bay (Boatyard is most popular) and after they do their shoot they will enjoy lunch, beach and water sports at Carlisle Bay. We are able to organize transportation but it is quite easy to get a taxi in the port and let them know you are going to Carlisle Bay/Boatyard.

Where do you do photoshoots?

We are able to schedule your photoshoot to be at any location in Barbados. When you make your booking, you can let us know where you are located and we will do our best to come to your location and/or find a location that is close to you unless you'd like to shoot elsewhere. We typically shoot on beaches but if you prefer a garden location, we are able to accommodate.

Can my partner join the photoshoot with me?

Absolutely! If your partner is not wearing one of the flying dresses, they can join the shoot for no additional cost. If they are joining and will need a flying dress, see below for our photoshoot discount for multiple participants. Barbados Dress Rentals is LGBTQIA+ friendly!

I have a group that wants to do the photoshoot together, how does that work?

We love to shoot group photoshoots, whether its a girls trip, mother/daughter or just two people who want to shoot together. For groups of 2 - 4, we provide a discount of $100 USD off per person, use code: GROUP. For groups of 5 or more, we provide a discount of $150 USD off per person, use code: GROUP150.

What time of day is best for the photoshoot?

The available times for photoshoots are 7am, 10am, 1pm, 4:30pm. You will get great sunlight during any time slot but if you would like a sunset shoot, you should select 4:30pm.

How many photos will I get?

  • 7 High Resolution Retouched Photos (digital). Your images will be selected by our team to determine the best images from the images reel. Clients that would like to see their raw images to make selections must make us aware of this at booking. Once images are selected by our team, the image selections are final.
  • 1 Year Photo Backup in case of image loss. You may also request your un-retouched images in the event you'd like to have additional images retouched. Images can be retouched at a cost of $30/image.

Is it possible to try on the dress prior to the shoot?

Can I rent the dress only?

We do not provide rentals ONLY on the flying dresses but you can select a rental from our luxury dress rentals category.

What happens if there is inclement weather?

Barbados typically has sunshine most days 365 days a year but during rainy season, you may experience intermittent rain. Usually that rain is transient and does not occur all day but in some cases it does. We will always do our best to reschedule shoots and will keep clients abreast of possible weather disturbances that may affect their shoot. We recommend that you schedule your shoot early in your vacation so that if we need to reschedule the day or time, we have some flexibility.

Does Barbados Dress Rentals use my images/behind the scenes video for anything after the photoshoot is completed?

As part of our marketing for BDR, we typically post client images and behind the scenes videos on our social media, advertising and website post shoot. Unless our clients request that their images/videos not be used in our marketing prior to the shoot, we reserve the right to utilize these images and video.

What other terms should I be aware of when booking the Flying Dress Barbados Experience?

All bookings are final and no refunds will be issued on Flying Dress photoshoots. If your photoshoot is affected by inclement weather, we will attempt to reschedule it. If we are not able to reschedule your shoot, we will issue a refund. No-shows will not be refunded and will be considered a completed photoshoot.
