I highly, HIGHLY recommend doing a photo shoot on your honeymoon (and hiring me if it’s a Maui honeymoon!). Here’s why:
- The stressful part is over! When you’re honeymooning, the stress of planning, and guests, and families and timelines is GONE. And it shows in the photos. There’s something pretty amazing about the energy between newlyweds when the wedding is done and it’s just the two of you on your honeymoon. The stresses of every day life are (in many cases thousands of) miles away. You’re with the one you love the most. It’s just… well… bliss. Bliss looks good on everyone.
- It’s kinda easy to rope your spouse into it cause you can ride that whole obligatory wedding stuff just a little while longer… “Honey, it’s what we’re supposed to do. It’s a part of the whole wedding thing. We have to do this. It’s tradition” 😉
- It’s the perfect way to commemorate your visit and perhaps see some locations you might otherwise miss. Because wherever you’re honeymooning, if your photographer lives there, odds are they know some spots off the beaten path. So you’ll get to see and experience things you might not have otherwise, and there will be photos of the experience as well. It adds an extra layer of special to an already amazing experience.
Even if that extra layer of special is “Hey, remember when we got poured on on our way out of that waterfall?”.
Cause that was AH-MAZ-ING!
