Destination Wedding Photography: Getting the Best Pictures of Your Destination Wedding

Choosing to have a destination wedding gives you a literal world of opportunities when it comes to beautiful wedding venues to choose from. This means you’re going to want to invest in wedding photography services for your destination wedding. You and your partner are about to embark on the romantic adventure of a lifetime; you’ll want a professional photographer with you every step of the way.

Top 4 Reasons to Invest in Professional Wedding Photography Services

While it’s true that pretty much everyone has access to a pretty nice camera in their phones, there’s a big difference between a professional and a guest at your wedding. Making sure you get a professional wedding photographer to capture the beautiful memories at your destination wedding is a must. Here are four of the top reasons to invest in professional wedding photography services.

Benefit From the Skills and Experience of a Professional Photographer

Look, no one is saying your Aunt Janice is bad at photography, but she’s probably not the best choice for documenting your wedding day. Hiring a professional photographer for your destination wedding ensures you benefit from the training, skills, and experience that only a professional has. The professional-level equipment that they use, paired with their editing skills, means every shot will be stunning.

Don’t Miss a Moment of Your Wedding

Professional photographers know how to be in the right place at the right time. They position themselves throughout the night to ensure they capture all the best moments of your wedding. For a destination wedding, they can even document the trip to your destination. Investing in professional wedding photography means you don’t have to worry about missing a moment. Once everything is over, you and your partner will have these beautiful memories to look back on forever.

Memories That Last a Lifetime, or More 

Another excellent reason to hire a professional photographer is for the ability to preserve the beautiful memories of your wedding. Taking the pictures is only half the job, the rest is editing, compilation, and printing. The gorgeous portraits, fun candids, and romantic albums tell the story of your destination wedding through images. The finished products beg to be put up on display. These pictures are memories that last a lifetime.

Share the Beauty, Romance, and Fun of Your Destination Wedding

Having a destination wedding means some people are going to have to miss out on the fun and romance. Whether it’s for health reasons, they live too far away, can’t get away from work, or any other reason, they still want to share your special day with you. Hiring a professional photographer for your destination wedding means you can share your wedding with everyone, including those who miss it. These beautiful memories bring family and friends together to share in the joy and romance of your wedding day.

Keep Photography in Mind When Choosing Your Wedding Venue

You can help set your professional photographer up for success by keeping photography in mind when choosing your wedding venue. Basically, this means being on the lookout for jaw-dropping locations and unique settings. The venue you choose helps decide the ambiance of your wedding photography. Make sure your wedding venue has multiple locations for taking pictures, ensuring you get a great variety of backdrops.

Traditional Wedding Venues Include:

  • Houses of Worship
  • Banquet Halls
  • Hotels
  • Resorts
  • Ballrooms 
  • Mansions
  • Country Clubs

Micro Wedding and Elopement Venues Include:

  • Ranches, Farms, and Barns
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Beaches and Waterfalls
  • Lakes, River, and Streams
  • Local, State, and National Parks
  • Breweries
  • Vineyards and Wineries

Hiring the Right Photographer for Your Destination Wedding

It’s absolutely essential that you get the right photographer for your destination wedding. The professional photographer that you choose will be capturing the ideal moments of your wedding, so it’s important to choose someone that you trust with that responsibility. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right professional photographer for your destination wedding.

Find the Right Style

Style is incredibly important when it comes to wedding photography. Every photographer has their own unique style or styles. Finding the right photography style for you and your partner will take a little research. Search for local professional wedding photographers and destination wedding photographers near you or near your wedding destination. Check out their websites, focusing on their galleries, so you can get an idea of their photography style. If they have social media, and they really should, check out their accounts, like Facebook and Instagram, for examples of their previous work. This gives you the best glimpse of their style so you can pick the right one for you and your partner.

Find a Photographer Who Has Worked in Venues Similar to Yours

Another thing to keep in mind when looking through local wedding photography websites and social media accounts are the types of venues they’ve worked in. Try to find a photographer with examples from wedding venues similar to yours. It’s even better if you can find someone who has worked at the same venue that you’re going to. Their similar experience will prove to be invaluable on the day-of. Not only does this help them prepare for the wedding day, but it also allows them to give you suggestions and tips as well.

Find Someone You Can Communicate With

Make sure the professional photographer that you choose is someone who you can easily communicate with. The relationship you have with your wedding photographer is an important one. This is the person you are trusting with capturing the best, most beautiful, and most important moments of your most important day. Being able to communicate with your wedding photographer makes preparation and planning much easier and helps your photographer get the best shots of your wedding. Having a good relationship with them even helps them anticipate the perfect moments to capture.
