Destination wedding photography is a unique and exciting niche in the photography industry. Capturing the most important day of a couple’s life in a breathtaking location is a dream come true for many photographers. However, breaking into this field can be challenging, as it requires a unique set of skills and a strong portfolio. This is where attending retreats can be incredibly valuable for aspiring destination wedding photographers! Retreats offer an opportunity to learn from industry experts, network with other photographers, and gain hands-on experience in shooting destination weddings. They provide an immersive and inspiring environment that can help photographers develop their skills and build a strong portfolio that attracts potential clients. My retreat that I hosted in Tulum was the perfect time to capture this stunning beach elopement! Come see more of this beautiful elopement to get inspired for yours!
I am a huge advocate of rest and I firmly believe that you HAVE to make time for rest and for vacations. I would go crazy if I just worked and worked and worked! That’s exactly why I decided to start these retreats. There are a ton of workshops for aspiring photographers to learn, but I felt like we needed more retreats! I’ve been to so many amazing locations for content days, but all we did was shoot non stop so we never really got to explore. With my destination retreats, like this beach elopement shoot in Tulum, there is a time and a place for photoshoots. The rest of the time, we can relax and explore all we want! These retreats are the perfect opportunity for aspiring destination photographers to get some experience!
We had such a blast at this retreat in Tulum! It was the perfect place for capture this stunning styled beach elopement. This shoot was almost on this couples one year wedding anniversary! They were planning on having beach photos done on their actual wedding day, but it didn’t work out. So they were so happy that they were able to recreate it during this retreat in Mexico! The sunrise in Tulum was the perfect addition to these elopement photos. One thing to note, if you are in Tulum, Playa Del Carmel and Cancun, the sun rises here instead of sets. So if you are hoping for gorgeous golden hour photos near the water, morning shoots are where its at!
