Wedding Wild Rock Golf Club in Dells, Wisconsin- At least a couple of times a year I get the privilege of being asked to do destination weddings. And many times, like this one, it is a place I have never been before! Some people ask me if it makes me nervous to photograph in a new place I have never been. The answer is always no. In fact, it inspires me more! I get a chance to view the locations fresh, and from a new perspective. In fact some photographers shoot so much at the same locations it makes the photos almost turn key. They lack creative stimulation to try something new and different. When you shoot at a new location, it's all new and exciting!
Brian, Megan and I had the pleasure of meeting last year when they were in town for the holidays. As a newly engaged couple they wanted to get some photos while here in Washington. We met at a place near and dear to them, Deception Pass. We had such a good time and they were so happy with their engagement photos they asked if I would come to Wisconsin to shoot their wedding! Some photographers treat destination weddings as an all expense paid vacation on the dime of the bride and the groom. For me that is not the case. I would think most clients would be surprised for most destination weddings I don't charge travel fees. Shocker right? I just love shooting in new and exciting places what can I say? Anyone want to get married in Iceland??? I am still waiting for that call! I tried to convince Brian and Megan to get married in Iceland. Instead, they chose a perfect place. Great friends, great food, and an amazing time!
