Honeymoon Photography is a new upcoming phenomenon. As couples begin to choose more out of the norm locations (or luxury honeymoon locales) this becomes increasing important to document. This is the couples chance to forever seal their wedding year glamour and turn it to printable legend. It is certainly not every day or even every year you can take such an elaborately striking vacation so take advantage of it. Forever pause this time in your lives and hire a professional to capture it!
Picture this… It’s just the two of you- no family, no friends, no obligations to worry about and certainly no time constraints as you did during your wedding day. Plus ladies, you can choose to have another fun dress to be photographed in (or don your gorgeous wedding dress again!), bonus! Destination honeymooning in Iceland, Fiji, Bora Bora, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, or even Bali Indonesia is a lifetime adventure and you need to capture that matchless beauty in couples portraits! Especially if you have chosen to stay in one of those glorious over the ocean bures!
After having a destination wedding in Iceland in April my husband and I needed a break, not honeymoon! So we waited 7 months on our official honeymoon and decided on Bali Indonesia, Choosing such an exotically dreamy place, we knew we needed to document it. We professionally photographed our own couples portraits and hope to fast-track this new trend in our destination wedding photography packages going forward. We began our photography adventure at Padang Padang Beach (the Bali beach featured in the movie Eat, Pray, Love) and it was stunning! Next up was a very romantic sunset dinner on Ayana Resorts Private Jetty. A few days later we finished with a couple of random spots in around the city we stayed, Candidasa.
What a fun week of portrait sessions! My husband and I were relaxed, playful, and uber romantic as we had every spot to ourselves. I was so excited that I was already envisioning 19×23’’ acrylic prints to hang and designing our Christmas cards in my head! This was truly a special session for us. Here we were in the middle of an unusual countryside celebrating our 7 month anniversary (delaying the honeymoon was the best decision) and we were savoring every second.
Our honeymoon portrait session was unlike any other session we have to date experienced. It was not as awkward as our engagement session nor as stressful as our wedding day- it was us in the essence of the moment and at our best. These are by far my favorite images we have taken because taking them was an adventure in itself! I know many of you may not have ever thought of it, but why not take your wedding photographer on your honeymoon? Especially those of you bride and grooms that are planning destination weddings- I bet all of your destination wedding photographers would offer you a special package to continue on with you on your honeymoon too, just ask! The wedding is critical but the honeymoon is epically you!
