Everything You Need to Know About Bringing Your Own Photographer to Your All-Inclusive Destination Wedding

    Such a helpful post! 🙂  My husband and I hired Hannah as our wedding photographer for our intimate destination wedding in Jamaica last month and it ended up being one of the BEST decisions we made throughout the planning process. Long before the wedding, I had my heart set on having a photographer who would be able to capture the day with more artistry, beauty, and elegance than the resort photographers could offer, but I was worried about being able to make that happen financially and logistically.  I came across Hannah on Instagram and I fell in love with her style and her eye for detail and light.  We didn’t actually get a chance to meet in person until the day of the wedding since we lived a ways apart, but Hannah was fabulous to work with throughout the process!!  Not only was hiring Hannah well worth the money spent (I know we will treasure those absolutely gorgeous photos forever!), but Hannah made the process (both leading up to the wedding and the day of the wedding) SO easy.  For any bride or groom who might be feeling torn, bringing your own photographer to your all-inclusive resort destination wedding is well worth the investment! 

    Thanks again, Hannah!! 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Kim!!! Your wedding day was SO much fun and I was so happy that we worked everything out with your resort!!!! 🙂 I’m so grateful that you chose me as your wedding photographer!!!! 🙂
