Planning a destination wedding?

That is so exciting! The romance, the enchantment of the location, the sunsets... Everything about it sounds captivating. Have you already decided on a date and maybe even a venue? Then the next thing on your list should be booking your destination wedding photographer.

You might be wondering, when exactly is the right time to find and book your professional? I would definitely recommend – as early as possible. Especially when it comes to popular locations, securing the services of your preferred vendors is vital. That being said, make sure to book your photographer at least 9 months prior to the date. This will allow ample time to meet with them, get to know their personality, be more comfortable in their presence, and even plan some pre-wedding or engagement shoots to frame your memories.

Another aspect to take into consideration is the busy schedule of every destination wedding photographer. Trust me, even if they wish to capture your event, they might not be able to because another couple has already booked their services for that date. Photography is an investment in your memories that will be cherished for decades to come, so you wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity and lock in your desired pro! Planning a destination wedding in 2 years and already eyeing someone who would seamlessly portray your love story? Start talking with them now, it isn’t too early!

For example, if you wish to curate your big day in a popular oceanfront venue like The Isles in Ocean Isle, NC; you need to act as soon as possible because the best vendors book up fast, including photographers. If you delay the process, you might not be left with many options – which would mean that you will have to compromise on the quality of your images. A scenario that sends shivers down my spine!

In essence, make sure to act fast and book the vendors that would make your destination wedding magical. Need a photographer who would create timeless memories of your special day? Get in touch with me, I would be honored to become your visual storyteller!
