Getting hitched in Jamaica? Pay attention!
Hot sun, hot sand, cool drinks, what a time for a wedding! Why not make it as best as you can with a professional local wedding photographer? So many people insist on hiring a local to them wedding photographer and then flying them down with the entire wedding party to capture photos of their day. Why waste money when you can get a just as good, if not better, local Jamaican wedding photographer for probably less than what you would pay someone to travel?
They know the area!
This is one of the most important reasons you want to hire a professional wedding photographer. You know that is why we always talk about local photographers, they know the area so well! You can’t expect a travelling photographer to know an area as well as someone who shoots exclusively in one area. It’s a reason I know why I am one of the best in my area, because besides how good I am at what I do, I have the advantage of knowing all of the great spots for wedding photos.
Don’t be a tourist!
Talking about how well they know the area, they can show you all of the amazing places that you never would have been able to see if you didn’t have a local guide you! And wedding photos there, how awesome is that? Some of the best photos I have taken have been with couples who have been from out of town. They have come from somewhere else and relied upon me to take them to a local spot for photos. They always look so happy when they have been shown a new place and this is one of the best reasons to stick with a local.
This is one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give a couple getting married. There are so many things to consider when hiring a vendor and so many options to choose from. With reliable online review sites you should be able to make a good choice, but one thing you should always do is try and find some recent work from your photographer. When you are looking for a photographer you should be confident in the one you hire. They are the most important vendors you are going to hire and the photos they give you are going to last a lifetime.
