Being a local Jackson Hole wedding photographer, I get to work with incredible couples who travel specifically to the area to elope. However, sometimes I get to work with couples that are based in Jackson and going somewhere else for their dream destination wedding. I love traveling with my couples to new and fun locations to capture their love story. Sometimes it’s hard to decide whether to bring a photographer from home, or find someone from the destination location. I’ve got a few reasons why you should bring a photographer from home, (that’s me!).
Since we’ve already worked together you don’t have to worry about getting along with your photographer and them understanding your vision. Having worked together for your engagements, couples session, or surprise proposal, we’re already besties. You already know what a session with me looks like, and trust me to capture your biggest moments in life in an authentic and real way.
During your engagement session with me, we’ve already talked about what you like and dislike in pictures. Posing, any insecurities, we’ve spent time figuring out all those things. Since we’re both already on the same page, we’ll be able to skip all of that nonsense and get to the good part, your destination wedding day! As your chosen photographer from back home, I promise to bring a little bit of home with me on your big day to help put you at ease.
Throughout my time as a destination wedding photographer, I know what to expect as far as day off timelines. I’ve been able to help multiple couples plan their dream day, while ensuring we get the most important moments captured. We’ll talk about what special events are having on your day, and I’ll help find the perfect spot for it all to happen. Before your wedding, I’ll take a bit of an adventure looking for perfect photo spots. We’ll find the perfect locations for your dreamy wedding day portraits. As your photographer from home, and also destination wedding photographer, I’ve got this covered.
If I’m lucky enough to capture your engagements or surprise proposal, one thing’s for sure, the photos will be cohesive. Working with one photographer for both of these big events, will help bring your home decor together too! Your memories will all look like they belong from one story. There won’t be any difference from the two events, and you’ll be able to have your beautiful engagement photos to display, and have an idea of what your wedding photos will look like.
Lastly, if you are a past client of mine, I offer discounts for destination weddings! If during the planning process you decide to change things up and travel, let me know! I love traveling with my couples and exploring beautiful destinations for their love stories. I’ve been able to travel with clients to Washington, San Diego, and even Florida! Travel is one of my favorite parts of my job!
