destination wedding photographer

Last year I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Clearwater, Florida and be a destination wedding photographer. We had an absolutely incredible time with the bride and groom as well as their family and friends. The venue, Shephard’s Beach Resort, was a perfect (and fun) beach location for the wedding. My husband and I flew in the day before the wedding. We shot the rehearsal and a few family pictures on the beach before the couple and their family headed off to the rehearsal dinner. The next morning the sun was a blazin’ and we were ready to shoot. It was so much fun to have everyone staying in the same place as the wedding and reception. We were able to easily pop in on the bride and her daughter getting dressed and beautified. Then we headed to another floor of the resort to shoot the groom getting ready with his friends. We did as many pictures as we could before the ceremony and then got ready for the big event. The ceremony was set up right on the resort’s private beach area. I’m pretty sure every ceremony should have the ocean waves in the background. After the I Do’s were done we headed right inside the two story club area for the reception. There was music, dancing, cake, great food, champagne and lots of laughter. I was able to steal the couple away later in the evening for a few more beach pictures in the beautiful evening light. (Which I might add is basically every photographer’s dream come true.) We finished out the reception with the bouquet and garter toss and some more dancing. When we were all done shooting I stood with my bare feet in the Gulf of Mexico and thanked my lucky stars that I was the destination wedding photographer chosen for that awesome wedding.
