When hiring a photographer, you don’t have to just limit yourselves to images from the wedding day itself, but consider other sessions that will make the occasion all the more special. Take for instance, Rebecca + Greg’s trash-the-dress session the day after their wedding.
They had a destination wedding in Cabo and decided to make use of the breathtaking ocean they had at their feet (literally!). The waves were right next to their boutique hotel and were so, immensely clear. By taking time out the next day for photographs, they were able to wade into the water (hence the term trash-the-dress) and take images there that you typically wouldn’t get on a wedding day. After all, you sort of want your dress to be dry during the reception or it could be a tad bit uncomfortable.
You also have a lot more time to enjoy yourselves without worrying that there is a wedding to get back to! I think it’s pretty easy to see the ease the couple had in these images and how peaceful (and fun) this whole session turned out to be.
