Yup! You're reading that correctly!
I'm now offering Honeymoon Planning as an add-on to all wedding packages!
This way, all you have to do is worry about the wedding, and I'll do all your research for what comes after!
I was bit with the travel bug many years ago. Since then, I've traveled to almost 30 countries. And my favorite part of traveling, is the hours of research I put into each trip before I go! I LOVE to find the hippest neighborhoods, the most unique activities, the cutest cafes, and the best times of year to go. I also love researching the cultures and their traditions, what food is a must-try, as well as what the best (and most cost effective ways) to get around are. I swear, if I wasn't a wedding photographer, I'd be a full time travel agent!
This itinerary planning is not for the couple that hopes to find a nice all-inclusive resort and bum around the beach for a week. This is for the couple that wants to swim with dolphins, hike to crazy waterfalls, try new cuisine with cooking classes, backpack in some mountains, and other off the beaten path adventures! I like to cram my trips with fun and beautiful sights, but I also am aware of cushioning days for some down time, and making sure there are no missed connections with buses, boats, planes, trains, and other automobiles!
Basically, you would tell me your honeymoon adventure budget, how many days you'd like to go for, what country or region you'd like to see, and I'd do the rest! I'll provide you with a suggested itinerary, with must-see cities, must eat at restaurants, which neighborhoods you should check out for a night scene, what activities are nearby, and your instagram worthy photo spots! I'll also give you info on what to bring (what outlets your country requires, best way to exchange money, most efficient means to get around such as taxi, ferry, public transit, etc). I'll also research weather for that time of year, and what sort of things you should be packing!
I've done some extensive traveling around these areas;
New Zealand (all of it!)
Scandinavia (Iceland, Norway, Sweden)
Mexico (Tulum, Puerto Vallarta)
UK (London, Scotland)
France (Paris, Nice, and other areas)
Spain (Barcelona, Sevilla)
Portugal (Faro, Lagos)
Italy (Rome, Amalfi Coast)
South Africa (Cape Town, and wine country)
Cambodia (Siem Reap)
United States (All over! I love all National Parks!)
Honestly, even better! Like I said, I THRIVE on researching new places! Even though I haven't been there yet, I've already done some research on Jordan, Turkey, Vietnam, Croatia, Namibia, China, Peru, Argentina, Nicaragua, and more!
Well I could help you with that as well. We could have a chat about your budget, your vision, your timeframe, your comfort levels. With that info, I could get the ball rolling and give you a few options.
A suggested itinerary for a honeymoon for 5 days or less;
A suggested honeymoon for 6 days or more;
These packages will include a suggested itinerary. (You may take or leave what you'd like with it!). Bookings would be the responsibility of the couple. Itinerary's will be made with a budget in mind, as well as activities and sight seeing they wish to do while on their trip. The package will also include helpful travel tips, what to pack, cultural no-no's, and facts on the best food to eat, helpful sayings in the native language, and much more!
