Destination weddings are SUCH an incredible experience for everyone involved. Every time I have the pleasure of serving a couple and their guests in a new place, I hear so much buzz about how this is the “wedding of the year” from just about everyone in attendance. Guests are always stunned by the location, its beauty, and the fun they are having!
Being removed from their everyday lives enables them to forget the worries of home, let go of their devices, and ultimately be more present during your special day. They also feel so much more love, care, and connection from the couple since they get so much more quality time with them than what a local wedding permits.
For the couple the experience is so rewarding and life-giving. Not only do they feel the warmth of creating something so amazing for their guests but also they do something unique for themselves. They end up with pictures that flood their minds with memories of the focus of nature and the people they love instead of stress and material things. They also get to have their first real adventure together to be something of grand proportions.
If you are anything like me, you can't just have a one day celebration. I turn anniversaries into week long events and my birthday into a series of parties, trips and festival tickets. Destination weddings give couples the chance to make their celebration bigger and longer, relieving the pressure of the one perfect day, without sacrificing the engagement of those around them.
As a photographer travelling somewhere new for work can reignite my creative fire. I cannot tell you how thrilled I get with every new opportunity and location. I enjoy the planning and research it requires as well as the adventure I get to be a part of. Travelling is a huge part of my life and I love the feeling of sharing it with others! This journey fulfills the wanderlust we all feel so take the leap and enjoy the trip!
I have broken down general points about the pros of hiring a destination wedding photographer, how to travel light and what to pack, importance of communication with your photographer, and if an elopement or destination wedding would be perfect for you and/or your guests. The best thing to do is to try to discover if you should be breaking some old traditions that you personally do not think you would like to do for your wedding. At the end of the day it is truly YOUR wedding day! So I do highlight some details in my interview as well as offering my downloadable PDF, my freebie for all couples planning their destination wedding! It’ll definitely note down everything to know, what to expect, give an understanding and the experience especially for all the first timers planning larger/ overseas luxurious events.
Elopements and Destinations are a beautiful expression of your love for one another. It gives off another emotion and an emphasized sense of joy being on an adventure together. What better way of starting your new journey together as an officially married couple than discovering new places together!
I would personally always recommend travelling to your desired locations for photo shoots when possible. The aroma and feel can be different compared to back home, but you're talking to a travel addict here!
What you choose to do for your Wedding Day will always resemble your journey and will always be special!
