    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Sacha and I'm a wedding photographer based in the Seattle area who stumbled across this site during a google search and think it looks like a great destination wedding resource. I have read the vendor rules and hope I can help others in the wedding planning process.

    I first became interested in destination weddings in 2005 when a prospective couple asked if I'd be willing to travel five hours each way for their wedding at a little resort on the coast. I love the beach and after hanging out with them and listening to what they had planned there was no way I could turn it down. Weddings had always been pretty routine for me and I loved how it was important for them to not only dedicate their lives to each other somewhere beautiful but also to create a weekend getaway where they were able to spend time with their closest friends and family. I have to say that after that weekend I was hooked.

    While these events take extra time and work on my part I find that I connect so well with couples that find value in doing something different than everyone else while still incorporating their friends and family that it more than makes up for the extra effort on my part. I'm sure part of this is that I would definitely go the destination route if I were getting married so these weddings are especially fun for me. I think another part of it is simply that I focus on the emotional connections between people while I am shooting and this results in images that are full of passion and a little different than what a lot of other people are shooting. People planning weddings that aren't traditional and boring tend to want pictures that reflect that...

    I think that about sums it up for me and how I ended up here - I hope that be of help to others on the forum and excited to "meet" some fun people in the process.

    All the best,
    What an amazing thing to find the person you were meant to love forever!
