Are you guys willing to travel for Destination Weddings?
Umm..You betcha! I’ll be completely honest. When in fact I get married, it will be a destination wedding. No doubt.
Planning a Destination Wedding:
Where should we have it?
I think this completely depends on you and your fiance’s personality. I’ve shot destination weddings in Punta Cana, Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Bali, and several other places outside of the US. Best part, you don’t HAVE to only have a destination wedding outside of the US. I’ve also shot in Marfa, Marathon, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Vail, Miami, and various other beautiful cities throughout the US. All equally great, as long as the wedding matches who you both ARE.
Good Points, Bad Points.
Not everyone you know will come. Could save a dramatic amount of money for your event.
You’ll have the traditions of another country used in your wedding (most likely). This could be awesome.
I’m sure you’ll pick somewhere beautiful, that your guests don’t get to venture to every day. This will make everyone happy.
You want to pick me? Really? Awe! Here’s how I like to work for Destination Weddings.
You’re hiring me to document your time together. Your family, your friends, and this beautiful destination you have chosen. I prefer to fly a day or two before the wedding. For 2 reasons: I will have more time to get accustomed to you, and your family; but also this will make sure I do not arrive late. My favorite documentation has come when I was able to fully immerse myself into the wedding party and family. Can’t wait to hear from you!
