When it comes to Destination Wedding photography, I am definitely bias since I myself was once a destination wedding bride! Me and my husband were married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I remember just being online for hours surfing the web doing research, stalking forums on TheKnot.com and Weddingbee.com, but also making friends with many Destination Wedding (DW) Knotties! If it weren't for them I would have been clueless as to how we would plan a destination wedding. As you can see from Kristy and Philip's images below, destination weddings are just breathtaking. The added perks of a destination wedding is that your backdrop tends to have a lot more scenery and bluer than let's say a NYC Wedding. I love being a NYC wedding photographer, but traveling overseas or event to a different state like Florida, California, Texas and more are also so worth it. You get different scenery and you and your guest can make a vacation out of it! So for every couple that decides to have a destination wedding, my heart is just joyful since I know first-hand how they are feeling, what it took to get to this day and time, and how every planning process was just worth it! I have so many friends who did get married overseas in Mexico, Puerto Rico, The Philippines, and more and each one of them stated it was just worth it. Can't wait to go back to one of the islands! Where will we travel to next to shoot an amazing destination wedding? :-) We love to travel especially in winter!
For Kristy and Philip, their wedding was a dream come true. With their closest friends as witnesses, and with family and friends back in New Jersey, New York, California and England feeling the cold weather, this gorgeous couple said their "I Do's" by the cliffs at The Crane Residential Resort in beautiful, warm, sunny Barbados. This wedding was just amazing with so many DIY crafts and eye candy to behold! The bride and groom did an amazing job planning every single detail of their wedding, from their invitations, to the DIY programs, stationery cards, photo booth, and so much more. They brought in the services of Ivie Joy Flowers & Events who created a wonderful design of fresh flowers in gorgeous vases that just pop with colors. I'm so happy to have been able to escape winter, even if it was only for a short while, and capture this luxurious wedding in this gorgeous Caribbean island. Being a photographer definitely has its perks! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Philip John!

Speaking of winter, although it's cold outside in NYC, there's nothing like shooting proposals, engagement photos and more in New York City especially near Valentine's Day! One of the best backdrops for any photos. I know wedding planners busy right now preparing for proposal events and aiding nervous groom-to-be for the big day when they say those 4 words...Need ideas for a proposal you're planning? Definitely check out Engagement 101 Magazine! http://www.yourengagement101.com/marriage-proposal-ideas/ One of our couples was recently featured with this article about their real proposal story and again in this article about what to do before your one and only pops the question: http://www.yourengagement101.com/relationships/2012/12/the-8-rules-for-ladies-in-waiting/
