Travel is where photography quite possibly began for me. The adventure of discovering new places, capturing their essence through photographs and always having the memory to look back on. Surrounding myself with these images has drawn me further into a desire to see the world. Photography is such a powerful excuse to see so much more of this amazing world we live in!
Destination wedding photography is my absolute favourite. The combination of exploring new (and sometimes familiar parts of the world) along with photo documentation is an adventurous documentarians dream! I have been fortunate enough over the past 10 years to photograph many destinations within Europe and worldwide. I am always ecstatic to travel, see new exotic or historic places and share my clients most special of days.
On to the specifics of capturing a destination wedding! I arrive at least two days prior to account for any travel complications and to scout breathtaking backgrounds. I also carve out time with you to walk through everything together, comparing notes and deciding on what works best.
I offer a complimentary session either before or after the wedding festivities to wear the wedding attire again or possibly something completely different. This session gives my clients the opportunity to visit the areas that may not be logistically possible on the actual day. I love to seek out dramatic scenery or quaint country villages. For the truly adventurous, stepping into the water and capturing some sexy shots can also be very fun!
Another possible option is to extend photographic coverage to any additional activities you may have arranged for your guests on either side of your wedding day. Anything from a family barbecue, to kayaking, vineyard tours, you name it – please let me know and I would be happy to quote separately. Destination weddings are usually more than just one day and it is important to document all aspects. The overall atmosphere changes with each moment – the story of the celebration and gathering of family and friends together in one place for such a momentous occasion should not be forgotten!
