Take advantage of the opportunity to capture some one-in-a-lifetime images of your destination wedding by hiring an experienced and skillful photographer like Hong of Fabulous Moments to perform the important task. The challenges of destination wedding are you will be in a location that is vastly different from home, you are not familiar with the environment and how it actually looks like. With some prep work, exploring the church and its surrounding ahead of time to figure out the perfect angle, natural lighting, etc. Hong is determined to capture the most beautiful shots without being disruptive to the ceremony. Arriving early before the bride, he managed to photograph the majestic architecture of the church artistically and lots of happy faces during the guests arrival. Some churches have certain rules such as: photographers are not allowed to be at the front and so on. Hong is aware of where he should be at critical moments to get a good dynamic angle of the event. The shots of the march-in, flower girls, bride's maids, solemnization, emotions of the parents and orders of service were spot on.

By visiting sites away from the actual location, you can get more variety of photography backdrop. Some shots here were taken at the Grand Baie Beach, nearby the church. It has a scenic sea view with crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Hong would be able to schedule time in between events to seize the spectacular views and take a couple of portraiture from different beautiful angles. How often will you be in a such magical place with stunning scenery while wearing a wedding gown? Therefore you have to work with a photographer who is meticulous in planning and time management. For instance, timing the photo-shoot during sunset will result in more gorgeous and dramatic images. Taking into consideration unique areas for photography like the walkway that stretches out to the sea, stunning rocks, the horizon, Hong captured the landscapes and structures cohesively with his eye for detail.
