Is My Photography Site "Destination" Enough?

Recommended Posts

I am local to Minneapolis, but I shoot a lot of destination weddings. I hesitate to eliminate my local weddings from my site altogether, but I want to place emphasis on my DW work. Do you, and a bride or groom, get enough of a sense of my DW coverage from my site? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Matt, I think your site is great and targets all weddings, not just DW. You might want to show a DW, then an MN, then a DW, etc.. if you want to show people you do all weddings, but I don't even think you need to do that, its just a thought. Looks good.

Hi Matt! I love your work, you have so many beautiful pictures on your site.

 

Well the first pic that popped up when I opened your site, was the one of the bride with the beach in the background, so that really says DW to me. I think you showed a good mix of both types of weddings. If you want to put more emphasis on the DW portion then I think you should probably add more, I think right now its 50/50. But thats just my opinion.

Matt,

 

First off, Welcome!

 

I love your website. I think you achieve a nice balance between DW and a more traditional as well, obviously your focus is on the DW, but if I were a MN bride, I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the phone and book you.

 

Btw, your work is amazing...I love looking at photographer's work! It gives me so many great ideas!

Yea I agree Matt... You may want to put another breakdown under weddings titled destination weddings and put some shows there too... also add that where your coverage is...

your work is great Matt...I can see why Leigh had you at Ann's wedding...you have amazing colors in your photography.

I think your site has a good mix of DW and Local wedding. I like that the DW's are first so people can see that is your focus, but that you also still enjoy doing local work.

Welcome to BDW!

Hi Matt!

 

Your photography is wonderful. I think I agree with the suggestions already made - maybe break the DW into their own spot and add some more to it.

 

Overall, I think you are showing a pretty good mix of DW and local though.

I just looked through your website. I really like it. I think you have beautiful photos. I really do agree that you should break out a seperate section that specifically says destination. Because, although there is one picture where it clearly says Bahamas (and a few where you can obviously tell), someone coming from the outside who does NOT know you are a destination wedding photographer, might just think you took some really awesome lake shots in MN. Or they might think it was a fluke that you traveled.

 

I think in your ABOUT section you should say that you love to travel across the globe to cover weddings, or something like that. I also think you should maybe write out what the basic "coverage" includes.

 

Just my opinions, but I LOVE your work!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
