Destination Wedding Photography: Flying In Talent

Project Wedding has a great article I came across regarding your photographer for a destination wedding. Many resorts offer a local photographer and often it is a much cheaper option than flying in a photographer, however, it really does have its drawbacks.

"The advantage to flying in photographer talent is that you'll be able to meet with him or her before your wedding and spend more significant time going over desired shots and wedding day details. Interview potential photographers about their location familiarity. A seasoned destination photographer will know how to adapt to a destination locale and what to look for in capturing your wedding."

Another great point is the potential flexibility for your photographer to offer some extended coverage.

"A destination wedding is often extended into a weekend or weeklong celebration. Many couples want their photographer to capture the rehearsal dinner and day-after brunch; others will hire a photographer to shoot a week of wedding-related events. Consider how much of your destination wedding you want immortalized in photos and book your destination-wedding photographer accordingly."

Now at August T Photography we give away 3 FREE destination wedding packages each year. The only thing we ask for is our travel expenses to be covered. Stop by our site for more detailed information.

August T Photogrpahy is committed to providing you with a spectacular experience and a plethora of photos from your destionation wedding. We are looking forward to hearing from you and hope this blog and related article were helpful.

Planning Tips for the Perfect Honeymoon

I just came across a great article on Planning Tips for the Perfect Honeymoon. I thought it would make a great addition to my blog.

Now if you are thinking about honeymooning in Myrtle Beach, then I have a few things I would like to add. First, some of the top things you should see while you are here.
There is nowhere to swim with the dolphins here, but there are tours that guarantee to see dolphins. Everybody loves dolphins!

There is a very relaxing and romantic place to visit and its called Brookgreen Gardens. I liken it to an Alice and Wonderland feel. It has 300 year old oak trees, statues and water fountains galore and just a beautiful place to visit. It is also somewhere you can literally spend the entire day and possibly not see it all. A nice picnic... champagne and strawberries...

If you like alligators -

Alligator Adventure!

If you like baby tigers in our lap -
TIGERS Preservation Station
If you like mini golf there are enough here to play one a day for several months!
If you like restuarants - there are over 3,000 in the area
If you like golf - there are almost as many courses in the area

And the last thing on my list which should probably be first is a romantic sunset photo session
with yours truly. I know of a perfect stretch of 3 miles of totally untouched beach front that makes for some of the most romantic photography to commemerate your new bond as one!

Now for some of what the Myrtle Beach Herald has to say...
He proposed, you said "Yes!" and now you're in the throes of planning your dream wedding. Among all the ceremony details, no doubt part of your wedding planning process also involves scheduling a romantic honeymoon.

Honeymoon planning can be very easy, or very complicated, depending on the trip you want to take. For example, signing up for an all-inclusive resort hotel on a beach somewhere, or a cruise trip with limited ports of call, tend to be easier vacations to organize because they don't require multiple lodging or transportation details.

But you might discover that you and your sweetheart can save a little money as you start your new life together and plan a more localized tour. For example, maybe you are both baseball fans. Touring several cities with major league fields and catching a couple home games would make a very memorable honeymoon vacation that you both would enjoy.

Here are some tips to help you plan your honeymoon so you'll have memorable stories to share through your life together:
