Having your destination wedding as a private intimate celebration can be a difficult decision. A lot of people do choose to do this as a way to keep their ceremony unique, real, simple and memorable. Such a wedding can allow the bride and groom to share vows openly at ease with each other without a large audience. Being able to look into each others eyes and say true feelings with waves crashing in the background is amazing. I have the honor of being able to witness and capture such a unique ceremony discretely. As a photographer seeing these moments unfold, it fills up my heart with joy and love as I capture it.
You can feel confident in hiring your own photographer from PEI as opposed to a resort photographer for so many reasons.
-Personal attention and ideas through planning in a local setting before the trip.
-Style & Creativity will be heightened from the photographers point of view as we have love a new environment to shoot in.
-Resort Photographers shoot multiple weddings per day, and this may cause less custom & creative photos.
-Cost is about the same to use the resort photographer as to use one you trust.
-Trust, knowing that you will get the images that you dreamt of as well as physically having the photos.
“I was not the girl who had her wedding planned out in detail from the time she was a little girl. I did not have a wedding binder of inspiration collected in anticipation of the big day. I did however, know two things before I got engaged: 1. I wanted to get married in Jamaica 2. I wanted Rachel Peters to be my photographer. I have known Rachel for many years and just knew my wedding would not be complete without her capturing every detail. I felt so lucky and relieved when Rachel agreed to photograph my destination wedding in Jamaica because I knew right away that I had nothing to worry about. Brides have so much going on and in the end we put a lot of trust into our vendors, counting on them to make our dreams come true. Rachel has the experience to make things happen. With her experience, she can foresee problems and help to avoid them, she also has an incredible creative energy about her that is so obvious in her work. Our photo session with her was easy and fun and we were under her creative spell from the time she turned her camera on until she left us. As it turned out, my husband and I decided to have “just us” in Jamaica…just us, and Rachel that is! She came through for us in every way and we were so honoured to have our special guest with us.” – Tiffany + Brody MacLean
