Jamaica Wedding Photography
Jamaica is a beautiful place for a destination wedding and this wonderfully located island country offers some amazing backdrops for the perfect wedding shots. Amidst the tropical climate and the scenic beauty of the place, Jamaica hits the right chord when it comes to photography, especially for your big day! The beautiful blue oceans and the pristine beach sand are an ideal place to get married and also to get wedding photography done. So for all of those who are planning a destination wedding in Jamaica and wish to make the most out of the photographs, here are a few tips and suggestions that might help:
• Get the beach in!
One of the most effective tips that anyone will ever give you when it comes to your Jamaican destination wedding is to include the beach in some of your wedding shots. The true Jamaican texture and feel can only be captured if the magical blue ocean can be included in the shots. If you are not getting married on the beach itself, then make sure you take time to head to one. You can either do this in broad daylight or even when the sun sets.
• Head to Dunn’s River fall
If you truly want to capture Jamaica in your wedding pictures, then you must check out Dunn’s River fall a little before your wedding and see if you like it as a possible background for wedding photography. If yes, then this could be a wonderful location for photography as it takes you away from the crowds and makes for a romantic getaway as well!
• Appleton Estate Rum
This rum estate is a perfect place to add culture to your Jamaica wedding photographs. This estate organized tours for visitors but you can acquire permission for photography beforehand and get a few shots clicked here in its very raw environment. Ask your photographer to check out the place in advance and figure out a few good frames.
• Undisclosed Locations
It is often said that the best secrets are well kept, at least I think that's how it goes. Ask your photographer about locations that may not be directly available in the public records. Jamaica has a lot to offer, not just the well known attractions but beautiful locations tucked away in its pristine environment. It is important that you discuss such ideas with your photographer because when its all over the only thing you will have to relive your experience and wedding in Jamaica will be your photographs, so how about preserving with uncommon style with diverse environments?
• Get candid
The whole idea behind destination specific weddings in Jamaica is to take in as much rhythm of the place as possible during the wedding ceremony and also during the photography sessions. But posing formally even at beaches won’t help. Hence when you are outdoors, try to get only candid shots clicked. Posing in front of a waterfall too sounds unnatural, doesn’t it? So let go and forget that a camera is pointed at you.
