Destination wedding photographer – R + G

Although I travel regularly throughout New England to document weddings, I have not built my business on the premise of being a destination wedding photographer. Travel is something I have always been passionate about, but I have not made a point of seeking jobs that are specifically “destination events”. This season, however, will been a year full of travel, both regionally and to more distant locations.  Traveling for shoots is invigorating. I love the “newness” of each location, the varying landscapes, the singularity of the light, and the delightful people I meet along the way.

Ben and I traveled to the Big Island to photograph Ruby and Greg’s beautiful wedding at Puakea Ranch in Hawi. The couple lives in Boston, but in order to better accommodate their families, decided to wed in Hawaii.

They are a delight to spend time with, and I love watching the softness between the two of them. Although they are both very accomplished individuals with demanding careers, they maintain a playfulness together that is a pleasure to observe.

The wedding was an intoxicating blend of sunshine, pastoral views, and happy tears.  The couple and their guests gathered under an elegant tree for their outdoor ceremony. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed cocktails on the lawn  as the sun set and then dinner and dancing in the pavilion.

A big thank you to  Swept Away Events,  who did a wonderful job of coordinating the day, and  Ben Schaefer,  whose exceptional images are featured here with mine.
