Your dream wedding is on the horizon, and whether you’re planning a beachside ceremony at sunset or romantic vows in an ancient European church, you want the essence of your destination wedding to be preserved forever in your wedding photography. We understand how important your wedding photographs are to you, and how much the details of your destination wedding day matter.
Destination: I Do!
Why hire a Connecticut wedding photographer for your destination wedding?
While many all-inclusive resorts and cruise lines include photography coverage, that coverage can often be much shorter than anything we offer—and you may not be guaranteed a professional photographer, to boot. That means that although the person photographing your day is associated with the resort or the cruise line, they may not have the range of equipment, the expertise or the freedom to leave the resort for the best possible shots—and isn’t that a huge part of why you chose this destination?
While “in house” or “on ship” photographers use an arsenal of standard poses and single on-camera flash techniques, we believe the only thing that should be standard about your wedding photos is the standard of excellence we hold ourselves to—and to which you hold us to, as well. We love candid shots that capture the joy of your wedding, and posed shots that reflect the connection you two share. We promise to use available light when possible, and know how to bounce a flash to illuminate a photo evenly—and that means no bleached out ocean views, “deer in headlights” shots or harsh facial shadows in your wedding album. And speaking of albums …
We work with you to design your personalized, archival-quality wedding album. While the price of our wedding albums are on par with that all-inclusive resort’s album, ours are created with your input, on your own timeline. Each album is fingerprint-resistant with a wrap-around genuine leather cover and is constructed by a team of artisans to last a lifetime. All wedding album files are archived, should you ever need a backup or duplicate album—and that means peace of mind, for all the years ahead.
All too often, resort or cruise ship photographers do not edit their photographs—even though they charge like they do. For us, it’s part of the package…and that makes all the difference. From cropping a photo to enhancing the lighting or saturation and everything in between (goodbye, wedding day pimple!), we’re Photoshop professionals who edit as necessary to ensure your wedding day photographs are everything you dreamed of. And did we mention you get to keep all of the edited images? We don’t have a maximum number of images in our destination wedding packages…so what we shoot and edit, you get to keep. Forever!
Professional. And Passport Ready.
Our destination wedding photography services are everything you’d expect from Bryan Avigne Photography: From our first meet and greet to your engagement session and on through your final wedding proofs, our dedication to our craft—and to you as a couple—sets the standard in excellence. You’ll know exactly who you’re hiring and what to expect from us…and that matters!
And we’re not just experienced in photography. Our years in the wedding industry mean we know the flow of a wedding inside and out. Why leave it to chance with your resort when your “planner” may come and go by the time you say “I do”?
We can help you plan your destination wedding. We know what works in terms of timelines, and can help to determine ideal times for your ceremony, photographs and more. We have an eye for detail: From tying bow ties and fluffing the dress to ensuring the veil is just so, we prep each shot until it’s camera-ready—all things your resort photographer might miss.
When you feel comfortable with us, it shows; you can lose yourself in each other and the moments of your day and leave the capturing of that magic up to us. We’re professional photographers who are always passport ready—just say the word, and we’re there!
We’re Local to Your Locale.
Though we’re Connecticut wedding photographers with a studio based in central Connecticut, we love to travel for international weddings and those inside the continental U.S. We do our research and we’re quick on our feet, so we’ll know where the best pictures can be taken and the best time to take them. And, because photography styles and definitions of “romantic” differ depending on where you are in the world, you’ll know exactly what to expect when we photograph your wedding.
Expect Excellence. Not the Unexpected.
While your wedding day will no doubt be full of surprising moments, we don’t believe your wedding photography should be full of surprises. When you hire Bryan Avigne Photography for your destination wedding, you know up front the amount of coverage you’ll receive—and we offer a range, from rehearsal dinner to bride and groom prep to the ceremony and the last dance.
When it comes down to it, the amount of hours we put in basically covers the cost of our plane tickets—and because we’re husband and wife, we always share a room! You can rest assured that we will have our own equipment (and backup equipment!), and that we’ll utilize the natural light, architecture and elements of nature to capture the magic and unique elements of your destination wedding.
