Bahamas Wedding Productions (BWP), a division of Bahamas Visual Services, was founded by Craig Lenihan and Tim Aylen, two of the country’s leading photographers with 50 years’ combined experience.
They oversee and mentor a team of photographers, videographers and photovideo editors, ensuring that strict professional standards are adhered to at all times in their studio in Nassau.
BWP provides quality photography and cinematography services for all weddings, large and small, using the latest Canon cameras and lenses.
Craig Lenihan is a 25-year veteran of still photography and, more recently, cinematography. He recently completed work on Bahamian films "Crazy Love," "Fresh," and "The Kindly Ones."
After completing school in the UK, Craig began training as a sports photographer at one of the country's biggest sports photo agencies, Action Images of London. Craig branched out on his own at the age of 19 and returned to The Bahamas at 21, working first at The Tribune newspaper and then freelance running Vision Photography, which offered commercial, advertising and public relations photography. Craig served the international newspaper and magazine markets directly and through news wires such as Associated Press and Reuters for years, becoming well-versed in shooting, editing, captioning and delivering images to meet tight global deadlines.
Craig progressed to digital photography as early as 2000. He is skilled using strobe lighting for portrait, corporate, commercial and still-life photography as well as in using lighting for film and television. More recently, after completing a cinematography certificate at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), he combined his photography skills with the world of DSLR cinematography to create high-end destination wedding films.
Tim Aylen is one of the Bahamas’ top photographers, with over 25 years' experience in all aspects of photography.
Tim has established a solid reputation with the major players at resorts and businesses throughout the country by offering reliable, high quality photography services.
After working in the newspaper field for 10 years and having had his work published in major newspapers and magazines around the world by the Associated Press, Tim graduated to becoming a freelance photographer in 1998. By 2002, Tim was applying his skills to the wedding industry, where couples were beginning to embrace the documentary and photojournalism style of photography over the traditional look.
After some very successful years running Tim Aylen Weddings and establishing a strong presence on the internet, Tim partnered with Craig Lenihan, another innovative and successful Bahamian photographer, to launch Bahamas Visual Services.
