I remember, when I first started my business, people would tell me that word of mouth is the best type of marketing. And I actually completely agree with this statement. Only, I struggled to see how that would work in a destination wedding market. What are the odds of that awesome bride from Wisconsin knowing another awesome bride from Wisconsin that would want to get married in Maui? So I really didn’t think that I’d be getting referrals at all.
Well, one of the first weddings I ever shot, which also goes down as one of my favorites, was with Clay and Becca (you can check it out here). From Clay and Becca, I have gotten not one, not two, not three… but like 6 or 7 referrals. And they’ve all been beautiful, lovely people.
Maui Trash the Dress
Katy and Arrius are among those I was lucky enough to shoot based on this connection. I’ll share their sweet, perfect wedding with you in a bit, but first want to share this day after, trash the dress session with you. It is one of my favorite shoots ever. It was a beautiful place, with beautiful light, shooting beautiful people (both inside and out) who are ridiculously in love and SUPER fun. As featured on Style Me Pretty Destination Blog, I gotta say, word of mouth FREAKING ROCKS!
