Why you should have me as your destination photographer
DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Alot of people don’t consider the value of their photographer, until the day has come & gone & all your left with are the memories captured
I've Heard It All
"We didn't think photos were really important"
"We couldn't afford a good photographer"
"I just never really thought about it"
I've had so many people who didn't invest in their photographer tell me years later "I wish we would have gotten better photos, or photos of my mom, grandparents, the ones that really matter. These are all we have left"
Its heart breaking to see moments lost forever. From hearing these things I can tell you what I have done. I PUSH, PUSH,PUSH the importance of photos on people. You don’t have to hire me (although you should) But PLEASE before you book anyone, see an ENTIRE gallery. Don’t look at the 3 best photos they have on their website. Ask for an ENTIRE wedding day gallery. These photos ARE important, if your photographer doesn’t see the value of your day, your friends and your family, I fear you will have moments & treasured memories missed, never to be gazed on again.
These are the only physical memory you'll have left from your wedding day, and once that day is gone, there is no creating that moment again.
Also get to know your photographer, they'll be with you ALL DAY, you should truly be FRIENDS with them! They should know you well enough to know what's going to be important to capture, what's special about your relationship, what will calm you down & what will make you laugh!
I am just as bit a ridiculous as I sound. If your wanting super posed, straight faced perfect unemotional photos. I am not the lady for you! Its your wedding, Lets plan for the worst, hope for the best and just ride it out and have fun when the day comes.
Lets have fun, do WHATEVER you want, Don’t worry about me, I’ve got it covered, all those wedding day memories are in the bank. I am not just shooting the “standard shots” I’m always on the look out for your Mom’s tear brimmed eyes, your dads shaky hands as he gives you away or maybe even the dance your uncle rips his shirt off and busts out! All I ask from my clients is that you just be yourselves, have fun with your friends, and at the end of the night when the sun is setting lets you 2 and I go out for a little slip away and get those relaxed ” WOW that day went fast & I love you so freaking much” shots. If you are interested in having me consult, shoot, coordinate and just bring the whole experience up a notch (which you should, just saying) I’m a chatty person and I believe in what I do, If you have any questions or just want to feel me out and see if we click just give me a call.
How much are your destination weddings?
starting at 4600 CAD (Travel +accommodations included!!)
If you'd like my second & I to stay at the same resort as you to be there to capture the vacation, and offer photo sessions to your guest through out the week, as well as do a second day bridal shoot with you, we'd need to discuss resort costs.
Do you want to stay on the same resort as us?
YES of course I do!! If w are able to its wicked, I get to know your friends and family before the wedding & come party time, I'm just another guest with a sick camera to document the whole night!!
It also make a "day after shoot" easy to do and I always offer one for free when I'm at your resort!
However the resort you are getting married at may be much more expensive then the Airbnb I was planning on staying in down the road, So if you'd like us to be at the resort with you all week, wed have to discuss prices with your travel agent!
What happens if you are sick?
I've never missed a wedding & it would have to be something out of my control, but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.
Do you help with planning?
100% YES! we will do a wedding consultation! I also like to work with your travel agent as well as your wedding planner at the resort.
How many destination weddings do you do a year?
Normally I am only able to offer destination weddings NOV-MAY (not available during Christmas), I take on up to 4 a year
How many images do I get?
However many it takes! I over shoot all the time, and regret it hours and hours into editing. But its worth it! I don't want to miss a thing! for weddings I estimate approx. 1200, but its been much higher before
