So you’ve found your dream venue! Whether you are saying “I Do” at a tropical destination resort or just somewhere soooo dreamy, there is a photographer out there who is passionate for your love story. The next step is finding a wedding photographer ⏤ please don’t skimp on this vendor!
When searching for a wedding photographer, it’s important to find someone you admire and also click with. They are one of the vendors who will be with you throughout your entire wedding planning process and all day during your wedding.
It’s also important to be open with your options. Don’t just limit yourself to finding a photographer in your town, it’s ok to hire a photographer who lives states away. (Of course if your dream photog lives close to home, go for it!) Which brings me to my next point, the benefits of hiring a destination wedding photographer!
I personally love to travel, it’s something I do other than photographing sweet moments. I absolutely love to offer my services to couples who live states away, I get to do two things that I love.
1. THE BEAUTY
When I travel to a new location, my vision feels fresh and I can take in the beauty of the destination. Whether it’s palm trees, cacti, estates, a busy city ⏤ I. love. it. all. Every venue is special and has it’s own charm to it. My eye catches the importance of that locations detail and I love to bring it out in my images. I simply appreciate the beauty and don’t overlook it.
2. THE INSPIRATION
Something about being somewhere new inspires me and helps get my creative juices flowing. Whether I am by an ocean listening to the waves crashing or adjusting to the huge elevation change, it just really gets me thinking and out of my typical routine.
The feeling of new scenery and experiences pushes me out of my comfort zone, which brings me to my next point…
3. THE EFFORT
Being stuck in one location, I get comfortable and when I get comfortable, I don’t produce my best work. That’s why I am constantly moving and not limiting myself to one city. When a location is new for me, it makes me job easier and I am constantly pushing myself without trying to.
Facing challenges and stepping out of my comfort zone really pushes me to produce my best work. I put in the effort of learning what spots are best for portraits.
4. THE EXCITEMENT
Being able to pack up my car with my gear or pack my suitcase to catch my flight, it’s so exciting to me! And that feeling of picking out a hotel room, choosing your flight seats, and planning out the entire weekend. Ahhh I just love it! You want a photographer who’s excited for your big day. I’m literally planning months in advance for my couples and I get sooo giddy as their big day nears.
5. THE ULTIMATE TRAVEL LOVER
When you hire a destination wedding photographer, you are helping them live their dream. You are making them the happiest photographer ever, I promise. Sharing experiences as a wedding photographer and traveler is special because those memories hold a close place to my heart.
