A tip about Destination Wedding Photography

Recommended Posts

We have been shooting Destinations now for about 5yrs and have seen a lot of good ideas, some great ideas and some ideas that seemed good but went terribly wrong.


Without getting into too many we are going to offer up a tip on Photography that we have been giving now for the better part of 2yrs and it has been extremely successful for us as a Destination Wedding company as well as for our brides.


The key to a successful Destination Wedding is to have a great time, why else would you be doing it right?!?! So the surest way to make for a great time on your days spent in the Islands or wherever you location may be is to REDUCE the stress levels.


Like I tell brides all the time, pay for the best wedding photography you can get and worry about all the extra stuff later (albums, DVDs, etc).


What is becoming more and more popular for us is brides who just use the resort photographer for the day of photos and pay the $600-1200 or whatever they charge nowadays and then hire a killer photographer with creativity for a creative session the next day that include something like a Trash the Dress etc.


A Bridal session like this can be done in 3-4hrs typically and is a very low stress situation. Why? because the big day is already over!


It makes for a much less stressful day of your Wedding when you don't have to worry about being whisked away to do a photo session while your guests wait for you to finish a "photo shoot".


Food for thought....maybe a Bridal session is for you?? smile159.gif


To your success and to a great Wedding,


Gino and Heather

Thank you for the tip. We (I) have been going back and forth on the photographer thing! We want to do a TTD the following day, but want gorgeous pics of our wedding since the majority of our family and friends will be viewing them at our AHR.


I will keep your stress free wedding day thought in mind! :-)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
