A destination wedding is a luxurious trend among couples to create a unique and memorable wedding party. Usually, they will choose a country to do their dream wedding and this is often a choice done with preference over budget. Then, they’ll begin to look for a vendor who can work with them and can understand their dream as well as vision.
As a wedding photographer Northern Ireland, one of the most important thing you need to keep on doing is to gain inspiration. One of the best sources of inspiration is to explore places you’ve never been. A destination wedding is one of the ways to do it.
One stone for two birds
It isn’t every day that you get paid for traveling and doing the things you love. A destination wedding is one of those kinds of activity. You are hired to take pictures, something that can only be done if you enjoy it. You are also asked to travel to a foreign country or town to do it. And for doing that, you are actually paid. When will you ever see such a nice offer again?
Explore and learn
A destination wedding means you are required to work in an environment you’ve never been in before. Unless you are doing a destination wedding in the exact same country, small chances you’ll know immediately what to do.
Thus, a destination wedding is a nice way to really expand your knowledge and experience. In tropical countries, it’s very normal to have the sunshine all day or simply to rain the whole day. The weather also tends to get humid and your clients will sweat much faster, pressuring in terms of time. As you learn more and show more, people will begin to want to look at you to help them.
Sometimes, you don’t know how to see something in a different perspective. Maybe because you’ve seen it this way for such a long time, or maybe because nobody else had a different way to do things either. Exploring a new place, meeting new people, and even searching for it will definitely tell you something about how they do things. And who knows? The Japanese way of making scrambled egg is even different from other Asian countries and it has its own umami (sort of like taste).
Something to show
Another thing is the fact that you can show to your other clients that you are experienced in a wide variety of situation. This says something about you. You’ve seen a wide variety of things and have the ability to see things and capture them differently. Not every wedding photographer Northern Ireland does this, so it’s worth the leap.
Just give it a try
Trying to take photos in a country you’ve never been is a challenge. There’s the pressure that you’ve been paid a bunch for this, so you should not mess up even a bit. You are also expected to be able to take an exquisite picture in that place because there’s no other way you’ll make another trip there.
However, the best time to start is now; later means that it might never happen. Set yourself a goal: I will accept destination wedding starting this date. I should post about this.
Hopefully, you’ll enjoy your first job abroad!
