Many couples planning a destination wedding will hire a photographer and fly them out to capture the most important day of their lives. But, once the wedding is over, your marriage has just begun! You are off on your honeymoon, giddy and full from the weekend’s events. Now you can enjoy quality time with your spouse on an adventure of a lifetime, and capturing these moments is often overlooked or an afterthought. After such a busy weekend, couples just want to relax. Taking tons of selfies and standing as still as possible waiting for the self-timer to go off (or did it?) can be exhausting and take some of the romance out of capturing this extremely picturesque part of your wedding adventure.

I joined these two a few days into their honeymoon to capture the start of their adventure as husband and wife. And let me tell you, honeymoon sessions are my favorite! There is an element of complete relaxation fused with pure bliss. The restrictions of a wedding timeline are out the window, and we just get to have fun. And for the newlyweds, you know you’re capturing real, timeless moments from your honeymoon. You get to focus on one another, not a self-timer. And you are left with memories captured professionally to go along with your wedding photos that you’ll cherish forever.
