We want to be more than a vendor to you and you feel like more than just a client to us. We work best when we feel like we have a great connection with you. We know it is how we do our best work and we also believe its what you deserve on your wedding day. When you invite us into your story, you give us the insight and access necessary to capture your love authentically and fully.
We believe deeply that your wedding photographer is the most important vendor you will hire, without question. You’re spending significant time, money and effort planning a wedding in an amazing location with every little detail accounted for. When it’s all said and done your pictures are the living proof of the memories that have been made!
WHY SHOULD YOU PAY TO BRING YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHER TO YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING?
Here are a few of our favourite reasons:
Bringing your own photographer offers you the assurance of being able to research and select the exact photographer you want based on style, personality and experience. Often, resort photographers are assigned to you and you’ll have no prior experience with them. Will their style and personality jive with you and your guests? By bringing your own photographer to your destination wedding you’re able to do your homework and interview the photographers either in person or via video chat. Take control of this part of your destination wedding planning, and ensure the energy and intention you are pouring into the planning of your big day is documented in the style and detail you're dreaming of.
Your photographer will spend more time with you on your wedding day than anyone else. This is especially true with a destination wedding where many photographers you bring with you will offer an uninterrupted full days coverage (It is important to note that this is not so with most resort photo packages). Spending that much time with a photographer makes it essential that your personalities jive and that you’re 100% comfortable with them throughout the day. The more comfortable and confident you are with your wedding vendors, the better able you are to be present on your day. Your wedding is a significant investment of time, energy and money into your future as husband and wife. It only makes sense to invest appropriately into preserving the the memories of that day, for yourselves and for generations to come. A destination wedding requires a great deal of thought and planning to pull off, it makes good sense to have professionals around you that you can rely on and trust. The cake, flowers, DJ etc. will all be gone within the day… but great photographs will forever serve as a physical reminder of the details from your wedding day.
After shooting a number of destination weddings, we have seen our fair share of the do's & don'ts when it comes to having a memorable experience while you say I DO, away from the comforts of home. We love sharing and educating you about easy ideas you can implement before you leave, to have the best wedding day possible. We help you design a wedding day timeline so that you can know exactly how your day will be laid out well in advance, providing you with the confidence to schedule the rest of your day with ease. We are available for your family and friends to book 30 min - family sessions with us while at your venue (cost varies). We walk side by side with you throughout your day helping with posing, choosing locations for pictures, carrying your dress, fixing your hair, getting you water, and everything in between...it’s truly a hands on day for us and we wouldn't have it any other way!
Because all destination weddings are uniquely different, so is the investment for each one of them. Collections start at $3500 (our travel expenses are additional)
