Destination weddings always get a little extra photography… seems like the least I can do for the extra cost. Since I prefer to arrive a day ahead, I like to spend a couple of hours at the rehearsal dinner getting used to the family and close friends. It also gives me a chance to scout a venue that is new to me and, of course it is a kind of insurance against travel problems… a little buffer just in case.
What’s really cool is to be there when the surprises happen. Lindy had a shiny red tandem bike delivered to Avio Vineyards to give to Kenrick… he was one big smile as they went for a ride in the soft light of the Sierra foothills.
It never hurts to ask about having a trusted professional photographer travel for you… it beats taking a chance.
