Every time I do a destination wedding, I get tons of questions from wedding guests, social media followers, and even resort guests as to how I work.
Unfortunately, the travel industry in general, and specifically, the destination wedding industry is full of bait-and-switch sales techniques. Most people are keen to this tactic and are automatically on the defensive when they hear about a deal that seems too good to be true. So when I try to tell people that the majority of my destination wedding clients literally pay me nothing for me to travel to their resort, stay 3 days, and photograph their wedding, they often don’t believe it’s true.
So I thought I’d try to explain it here a bit more: In this video, I sum up exactly how by combining my two businesses, everybody wins. My clients get free photography for their wedding, I get to travel the world and photograph weddings in beautiful locations, and the resorts get large wedding groups staying at their properties! You can use any travel agent in the world to handle your wedding group’s booking, but when you can use me and get free photography in addition to having your travel agent be on site to help should any issues arise…. why would you use anyone else?
Side note: – I’m learning how to speak slower…. but when I had spent the last hour trying to say the same thing repeatedly, and I couldn’t get one good clean cut in, I found myself talking quicker and quicker by the last few takes!!! – My apologies!
